13651Re: [GPSL] US aviation watchdog approves $75K balloo n ride into SPAAAACE! • The Register
- Oct 27 10:34 PMI would like to see how they intend to get the airfoil to remain in the fully deployed and inflated formation during the lift portion of the flight.The cutaway and drop sure was nice and smooth too!I wouldn't turn down a free trip, but I'd not be expecting the glass smooth ride depicted... launch will a little bumpier, the drop away and "weightless portion" will probably be a little more on the stomach churning side, and touchdown might be a little interesting as well.Where do I apply for the crash test dummy role?JamesVE6SRVOn Sun, Oct 27, 2013 at 10:23 PM, Mike Manes <mrmanes@...> wrote:
Interesting that the parafoil is launched fully deployed, a la'
our spreader rings. Gets past the spotty deployment reliability
record for sports parafoils.
