when you buy a new canopy..... Can't Post

Sorry for the dumb question but.....when you buy a new canopy what exactly do you get? Do you get risers? A d-bag? Slider? Pilot chute? Or is it literally just the canopy?

Blues,

Gus

ah, not a dumb question, now you know.

If you buy new, just the canopy and slider. Risers, and d-bag should come with the container. Pilot chute is extra, or with the container.

found this out while i was putting my new canopy on my container, the d-bag is specific for the container, mine is sooooo big for my 150 but it is for the container, doesn't matter that i had a 210 in it before.........

You're putting a 150 in a container sized for a 210? Please tell me thats a 150 zp and the container was sized for a 210 F111... If not you're skirting the very edge of safety imho

You should get canopy, lines, links and slider with a new or used main or reserve canopy. Everything else needed to hook it up and fly it is considered a container part.
