FXC Model 12000 1 out of 5 stars

Review by: DanF, 2010-11-27

During my AFF training (level 6 jump) back in 1985 my FXC 12000 fired my reserve off at 9,000 ft. Both of my instructors looked up at me as I was yanked out of their arms. At first they though I had pulled my rip cord but on the ground I showed them that it was still neatly stowed in the pocket. It turned out that the jump manifest lady on the ground was supposed to 'zero' the FXC then 'set' the preferred opening altitude. She didn't 'zero' it and instead only turned it to the opening alt.

While training in Halo while in service,I used this device on all my jumps,and although I pulled at altitude OK, I could always hear it go off almost immediatly after I pulled.They were set to go off at a given altitude.One of the students in my class never pulled his ripchord,he always let the FXC do it for him.(not recommended) I never did see or hear of one malfunctioning. We had them on our mains.
