Parachute drops
Who makes parachute drops, small ones, no more than
12-14 inches across?

Have a nice flyzone sensei which has remote controlled
doors for a parachute drop.

Appreciate your response,

I buy them from Dollar Tree stores for $1 each. (duh) Each comes with a 4" solider attached and the 'chutes are either red/white or blue/white or sometimes green/white.

I build my own out of umbrella's (the small foldable ones)

It is easy, since it already has a good shape, the fabric doesn't "stick" like most small plastic chutes do and when you use enough cords, it makes an AWESOME ball when opened.

If you guys want, I will be making one soon, maybe I can make a build-thread ;)

I did a few before, but somehow during my move they "vanished"... *mumbles* cannot trust anyone these days...:censored:*mumbles*
