Using the same pliers, try now to cut a Spectra reserve closing loop and you will see it's another story.

That's all correct and understood... ya sorta missed my THREE statements about the SUCCESSFUL demonstration of an UNtightened (loose hanging) reserve loop being cut? WinkWinkWink

So it wont let me up load the video here but I found another spot on the web site to up load it. It will be under "loop cut 1" and "loop cut 2" in missolanious. It looks like it will have to go through some kind of approval process, probable checking for kiddi porn, but it shud be up soon. Boringest vid ever for any non rigger. In any case keep an eye out.

Ok, vids are up as loop cut 1 and loop cut 2 if you go to the video area

So what you're seeing there is a Vigil cutter wired into our computer. There's a fuse in parillel with it. You'll see the fuse blow and the cutter fire cutting the loop. It's a 500 lb vectran loop. The thin wire runs through the cutter giveing the computer feed back on the release of the main. You'll also see a pin puller being activated at the same time although it's macanicaly slower. At the top of the frame you can just see the top of the recovery section. This is the setup we used on the last flight in early nov.
