Re: [MADPROPS] would you let me jump a smaller chute at your dz?
In reply to:
read b4 answering the poll plz
I read, but I can't answer.
You haven't told us how much you weigh, so we can't calculate your wing-loading.
When you slope soar, is there the weight of a reserve parachute? That alone, would add about 10 lbs. to your weight for a skydive, compared to slope soaring. Thus you would need a bigger parachute to maintain the same wing-loading that you have for slope soaring.
I'm surprised that no one else has bothered to ask this crucial question yet...
