Deployment diaper? Are you sure you don't mean a tailpocket?

It's the diaper you're going to need when you deploy this canopy for the first timeCool






No ,just kidding.It is the black thing on the back of the canopy.Also known as a tailpocket.

It's a tailpocket in this case, but actually there IS such a thing as a deployment diaper for squares, apperantly Blush

My new Lightning just arrived in a few weeks ago - the booklet PD includes with it (assuming you bought it new) explains how to pack it, Its pretty easy.

I don't know if they have a download, but if not, call PD and see if they will mail you the publication. Or they may e-mail it. If all fails, speak to Rusty Vest at PD. He will help. Wink

Hey, those new canopies have float AND drive! Great for making wing docks, huh? LOL.

You can remove the extra french links when you see the lines don't lay perfectly together when you're packing. That took 50-70 jumps for my new 143.

Remove the links? Are you kidding me? I've probably got less than 50 jumps total on 113's without links and I HATE it! The links stay permanently.... I can't stand jumping 113's without extra links...

Hey, I got a personal DVD sent to me a little while ago on how to pack a tail-pocket Lightning. This is from a world-class crwdog. If you want it, I'll send it to you. PM me your address and you'll get it in a few days. Smile

you know this is what makes the crw world great, I see way to much of "well i'll be glad to help you but you need to pay me" in the RW world and even the freefailers now. Thanks Billy you are tops in my book

:-) Yep there are a bunch of them out there. Actually some of the CRW teams these days are using Lightning 106's!

Re: [faulknerwn] what is a deployment diaper [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I can see why they downsize, but is that standard sizes? Can everybody order those, or just is it just for the sponsored teams? The smallest lightning on Pd`s homepage is still 126...
