Long live the PC, even if just in our memories 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: 377, 2006-12-25

When the PC hit the market it was revolutionary. I jumped it a few times and for a round canopy, it was amazing. I truly thought that canopy design had reached its peak. Then came Ram Air ("square') canopies and the PC was quickly yesterday's news. A few die hards still jump them once in a while. This book provides valuable info on rigging, packing and modifying the PC. The book is well written and illustrated. They are long out of print but show up on eBay from time to time. PCs came in may versions, but to my mind the best was a MK 1. Later versions including the RW model just didn't seems as good which is surprising. If you are going to jump a PC, talk to some old timers first because it flys and lands substantially different than your modern square.
