I've been posting this all over the place and I'm getting all the information that I need to make the financial plunge...again.
After a 14 year layoff from skydiving, due to a hang gliding accident that left me with paralysis below my knees, I made my first jump since my accident last weekend. I weigh 235 pounds and jumped a PD 280 main in a Vector harness and container. I will be landing on my feet and butt. What's everyone's opinion on Make, Model and Size of canopy that I should get? What is the Make, Model of harness and container that people recommend? What is the best deployment design, throw-out? Pull out? Ripcord? I have been having difficulties with BOC throw-out, due to not being able to reach it.
I have 888 jumps.
