I will try to do that.
Servo's light is not a option because they must be stong for stearing and for braking.
We started with a normal servo 3 kg. Many years later now we used servo with a strenght about 15 or 18 kg for each arm.

Thanks a lot, the two plans contain more information and details than I've ever seen on the subject! They appear to be a very good starting point.
Unfortunately, captions and numbers are not pefectly readable from the pictures...
Would it be possible for you to do higher resolution scans?
Take your time it's not urgent at all.
And thank you very much again!

This para's are not de cool boy version. The para's that we use are heavier than the coolboy and better to stearing because the whole arm can stretch to the body.

Thanks for explanation.
However, I'm in a position where I don't want to invest 250 Euros or so in a jumper kit (even because I don't have a large plane to lift such a heavy load!) and want to try building a smaller chute from scratch.
This is why drawings with right proportions/size would be of large help for me. I haven't found anything around the internet but your pictures!
Any help, link, picture, drawing is more than appreciated.
Thank you so much for your patience.

Thanks, although the sail concerns me more than the man...

I found some useful information in the pdf files here, too

Yes i know some gays, with some of them we play a few years competition in Germany.
You have to look of the name of Michael Rogg in Germany he has the drawings of the newest para's were you can pull the leading edge down for getting forwards when there is much wind. I will try to find out to find the site.
Also i have the templates of a few parachute's, the coolboy, parafoil 1 126cm wide and the parafoil 2 156cm wide. I make my parachute's by my selves this year i became second in the national overall competition.

So you are a winner in RC skydiving
I found quite a populated thread in RC Universe on the topic
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/r-c-sky-diving-474/
I also posted and found that a project exists of a micro diver around 200 g, with a 50 cm chute, called ihl-junior. This is much close to what I have in mind to build. But no plans since it's a commercial product, only manual.

I'm still looking around for chute plans, I have for the moment two plans but none of them is the winner for clarity...
http://fallschirm.dmfv.aero/hpdocs/p...rmspringer.pdf
(direct link to the pdf is broken, but you can browse for the file from there, there are some pdf, the most complete is called "Parachutiste et voile radiocommandé.pdf" and it's in German -despite title in French-)
and
http://www.mindspring.com/~sanyo1/
(get file gitchelchute.doc, quite a detailed text file with no pictures)

Moreover I found mention of a very old plan (#631 in RCM magazine) that can still be ordered, I'm thinking if it's worth 22 bucks including delivery, maybe yes...

They don't make new ones ihl juniors any more. You can only buy by second hands. I don't have smaller plans than the coolboy.
