Hello, I'm into Radio Control modelling and am currently working on an
R/C Skydiver. The plans call for a parachute-kite sold by a company
that has now gone under. If anyone knows where I can buy one, or find
Plans for one of these canopies, let me know asap!

thanks,

-Scott

Hi Scott,
In the book "KITES A practical handbook for the modern kite flyer"  by Ron
Moulton and Pat Lloyd there is a plan for a parafoil/parachute that may be just
what you are looking for.  Might check you library or you can purchase it from
the Kitelines bookstore.  I just checked and they have it on their website
under "books from England"    Hope that helps.

To fly or not to fly....there is no question!

Hi Brappsf,
    I ran into a guy flying what I thought was a GFAK (Go Fly A Kite)
Parastunter,
I told him I had an identical kite to his, but then he told me that he had
got his
with an RC type vehicule that hangs below and has a propeller to move it
thru
the air. The kite did not have the GFAK marking on it, so I assume that
the company
that went belly up was having them made by GFAK.

In Canada: http://www.10-AGAIN.com/gfak.htm
In US: http://www.HighLineKites.com/cgi-bin/web_store.cgi
           then use the search button and type parastunter

Hope this is what you're looking for,
