Most number of RC Skydivers in the air simultainiously

Unread post by rcskydiver »

Here are some photos of our un-official SA Record, for the most RC Skydivers in the air at once. This is the first time ever that such a feat was attempted in SA.We have bragging rights for the moment as the Germans challenged us to break their record of 12 of which they have photo proof which we now did but we are palnning to improve on it next year to make it an international record!! .

What also made this feat exceptional is we used only 3 airplanes to lift the skydivers to altitude. (The German's used 8 planes for 12 jumpers) Unfortunately it would have been 14 but a "sniffler" because of a bad pack job we ended up with 13 skydivers in the air(don't trust a pilot to pack your chute next time Michiel) :wink:

Thanks to all the guys willing to participate, specially the owners of the drop planes, Zane, Michiel and Marcel. Thanks to all the divers with their jumpers who assisted in making the attempt a reallity: Fanie, Riaan, Michiel, Gideon, Johan, Andre, Kobus, Pieter, Morne, Marius, Alex, Ian ,Gregg and Neville.
The divers consisted of 11 SAM's, 1 Older version SAM, 1 Older version SAM Hybrid and Willemien(made by Kobus from Worcester)

Enjoy the Photos!!

Hi Skydivers Inc

Are we going to go for the record again on 29 June at Warthogs? What do we need in support aircraft? I am sure I can get my senior telemaster modified to take up 4 jumpers.

Let us try for the record

Kind regards
