Default Skydiver build

After a lot of work, I am going to build my first diver. I found the plans on line. I was very lucky and got a chute from TV Products out of Belgium. It is a very high quality chute. I have the little guy cut out and will post pics soon. He is a beginner diver. I am also looking for templets for a chute. I want to try to sew one, but that is a later project. Thats how is works one project on the table one in my head, lol.

Hi Chris,

Looks like the skydiver is coming along great.

You'll like the TV products chute, I have one and it flies very well.

Hello Chris,
If you like you could the next time to make the knees and enkels like this, because they has to be strong and is good bending by the landing.
we have try another methode but it brake down after a few times.

Chris ,
Do a search for anti vibration mounts.
Most hardware stores have a selection.

I found the anti vibration mounts at this web site http://jwwinco.com/products/section7/index.html They were $1.00 each. This is the cheapest I have found them. Most places they are 4-6 each. I will post more on the build when the parts come in.

I've been thinking about building one also so I will be following your build. What size and weight are these built to? How big is the chute? Is there a standard? Like 1/4 scale or something like that? Thanks
