Canopy Durability Liner Crash #1

Canopy Durability Liner Crash #1

Well, it sure did take a while before i crashed this time. After watching the video a few times now and thinking about it. I'm still not clear on the actual cause of the crash. It was either the battery not giving the juice and i had a temporary brown out or the gyro went a little kooky and nose dived it's self. Either way, the durability liner kept the canopy from cracking or splitting. The typical nose shattering did not occur and it's likely at least the bottom of the canopy made contact with the ground even though the skids probably took most of the impact. It was not by any means a light crash diving into the ground at near full head speed.
