  • Also during Covid I added the PowerBox I Gyro system in it. The newer version is now the 3XTRA which I was happily to purchase from Swiss1 at the Model Box, Thanks Jerremy! I made this G-10 mount for it. With all the VG's and stall fence hanging off the wing PLUS the gyro... Man! this is now my favorite airplane to fly at my local field.

          Its for my next design that I finished designing in 5 weeks (my record time) during the covid -19 epidemic. Its for another thread in the future here...
          Im calling it "Caribou dash 19" a 8 passenger trike gear bush plane.

      • Yes , the pod is for my 1/3 scale skydiver. 4 3/4 pounds. On the third jump the release servo for his chute stalled and wouldn't open or eject the parachute. Reason was I put one too many folds in his chute while packing it. Ugh! packing the parachute is not easy when there's a breeze at the field. Though, I did replace it with a stronger digital servo.

              Bought it from Esprit Models Steven Skydiver. Definetely not for windy days.

          • Here's a video from an annual RC skydiver event at AMA headquarters. Gary had a Decathlon with 5 drop boxes on the struts.
