Bob and I have come up with a very simple chute that can be made in about 2 hours. It's called Drop and Pop. They are a static line type of jumper.The Plans can be downloaded from this page in the download section. Just look for fltchut.bmp or fltchut.gif. There is one draw back, They really like to float in the air so I would add about 1 ounce of weight to them. I would experiment with the weight adding. Add enought to let it come at a normal time but not to little to where they float up in a thermal and do not add so much weight that it comes down like a rocket. We used an 11 1/2" figure dressed in military clothes from GI Joe. They fit real good, K-Mart would be a good source for the clothes, their brand goes by the name of American Heroes. You can download the plans to make this chute in either a GIF,BMP format or a DOC file. The Doc file requires word 6.0 or better.
