Yea, Ya'll are sneaky in Ahia with all that secret jumping preparations going on. Are you trying to win at Muncie or something???
With all this 2.4 stuff everyone is getting, we should be able to make a mass jump easily. I will have two "Mikes" on 2.4.
Juan, you are right about some people not knowing which jumper to control on a mass jump. I have a problem everytime I have made a jump with 2 planes and 6 jumpers. Someone always gets mixed up no matter what kind of detailed pre jump meeting you have. I have tried everything to keep the guys straighteven at Top Gun using "PRO" Pilots -they goofed too!!! Maybe we can get it right in Muncie. Let's try!!!

Jim and Mike,
I really like the idea of a mass drop. If nothing else it should be interestin. My jumpers are all on 2.4 so I don't have any problem with frequency interference. I don't about the people from Ohio hiding out in the weeds waiting to pounce on people. Guess I'll have to bring my weed whacker, LOL. Sounds like this Rally is gonna be a real fun one.

Hi Gary,

I attempted to e-mail several of the Somerset guys but the e-mails were returned because of bogus addresses. So, I don't know how to contact them.

Mike S.

Ohio Deep throat fears for his life !
He has been told not to leak further confidential inside information of the "Columbus RC Skydiving Giants" anymore ! [8D]



Maybe if things cool down a-bit he is willing to speak out again , providing us with info off the progress the "Columbus RC Skydiving Giants" are making !

Trying to get more info out of your USA contact are we.............

The one you need to watch is the individual feeding the information, he builds your confidence up by missing the runway then puts one at his feet, keep your eyes on "OHIO PHATS" he's a hustler....

Mike S.

P.S.
There was an assination attempt on my jumper this past weekend, jump pilot "accidentaly" hit the release switch at 75 feet right after take off. []Jumper fell to his death, fortunatley did not die, he is in intensive care now but in stable condition. The doctor (jump plane pilot) say's he will make it and should return to jump status with in a week.

twin3d:

hope injuries were not severe you know jumpers are not to jump with splints or bulky bandages, you have ti tell pilot that you have to have at least 1000 feet before you jump ha ha

Jules :

Maybe twin3d had better put a blind fold on his jumper so that he will not have to see what altitude the jump pilot is dropping him from, would hate to see his jumper freeze in the box and have to come back down on the plane.

Things seem to be heating up OH. Glad your jumper was repairable Mike.
No need to worry about any competition from VA, Dropped two Sunday one landed about 600' from the target and the other about 300'. Wes' was unresponsive, not sure what the problem is, he is checking on it, may need to call in a specialist from OH.

After many laborious hours in the operating room (dirty workbench in my garage ) the doctor enters the waiting room with mask hanging low around his neck. “Sorry Gents, there wasn’t much I could do.” he stated to the crowd gathered in support. “The jumper had traces of glow fuel throughout his body and I found this note crumpled deep in the pocket of his jump suit”. The chief ground crew officer (and sponsor of this gang) Ohio Phats snatched the note from the fatigued doctor’s hand. As Ohio Phats stared at the note two orderlies push a gurney carrying the body draped with now lifeless chute. Phats looks up as they pass by just in time to notice a twitch of jumpers the right arm. Could it be? Nah, must have just been a radio glitch from the antenna-less receiver. Phats turns to face the other members of the gang. “A suicide! The gutless wonder couldn’t take the pressure.”

This is a work of pure fiction.

The reality is a plot of intrigue and a vast right-wing consiracy. The evil "Doctor" is the master-mind behind the whole sordid mess!!

I don't know about this "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" and "The Evil Doctor" and even "Deep Throat" being involved. I mean with the assination attempt on one of the jumpers. Will it even be safe to attend the Rally? Would it be advisable to bring my Tench Coat? Please advise. Thank you.

You're always welcome Juan! The problem is the jealousy within the Ohio competitors. They envy "Ohio Phats"

If you wear your Trench Coat, please keep it buttoned at all times.

Accident Investigation News Update!

During recent investigation by the AMA, FBI, ATF, DEA, MIB, CIA and FAA it was determinted that this was no suicide attempt and that the accident occuring on August 23 , 2008 at approximatley 1500 Eastern time was all pilot error. Found problem to be the pilot got release switch and Aileron to Rudder mix switch mixed up and hit the wrong switch. This is a common accurance when the switches are put in close proxcimity of each other.
All though there seems to be evidence of some foul play involved according to the BLACK Box recordings of the cockpit conversations. The recordings revealed intense competition within the OHIO skydiver chapter and a need to do whatever it takes to win. In order to eliminate the competition we find that it is very possible that the pilot may have deliberately hit the release switch. This shows motive of foul play. We are doing further investigations to determine if there is any international connections with this incedent. There is still the possiblity that "OHIO PHATS" and the "Evil Doctor" may be involved in this "Right-wing conspiracy" and are prime suspects in this case. As evidence is gathered we will keep you informed.

Oh boy this is getting complicated !

You didn't mention the KGB and the MOSAT, are you sure they are not involved in this ?
I did not know RC Skydiving in Ohio was in the hands off some mental unstable individuals !

These Skydivers from Ohio looked if they where a nice bunch of guys .
