  1. for those of you who have made hackey sack pilotchute handles....how do you get that dimpled look at the seams?
  2. someone is posting a Navigator and a Sigma370 on l.a craigslist.advertised as parasails! price $100 .something tells me these are stolen
  3. AlMacDonald should just ground it.its too old to be fucking with and definitely not worth the money to fix it.not to mention that sewing new ones on will weaken that type 3 lower lateral band further cuz now it will haveat minimum twice as many needle holes in it at those points. .. and dpreguy...were u around back in the 60 s.? it was either lopo,or hipo(aka cheapo).and one could never confuse p.c. taffetta with either one so thats how the terminalogy was.and i would take an "L" link over a rapid link anyday(overkill i know)
  4. i would not bother to replace them.their only purpise is to "create small eddies of airflow" that suppossedly help spread the skirt and speed up inflation.they do contribute to abnormal deployments .strong lopo's are essentially the same canopy but w/o those quick opening bands or "taschengurts" as they are called.if the canopy has a diaper then they are pretty much worthless
  5. i have seen and heard.of.both nb6 and nb8. but not nb7
  6. hard to believe its been 23 years since you left us.working with you at ParaFlite was always a hoot....
  7. anyone know where i can get just a couple yards of black marquessette pilotchute mesh?thanks in advance
  8. early production versions of the R3 had a little wooden "toggle".they would break or split ,so Rodriques started producing R3 s with polycarbonate "toggles"
  9. at Ripcord ParaCenter(in NJ) we used a 24 ' twill in a 28 ft container . BUT it was packed normally,justnot as carefully as an airworthy reserve. And it was a full canopy,not one that was all cut up.
  10. im db cooper-----no, I'm db cooper- WILL THE REAL DB COOPER PLEASE STAND UP?
