Thanks screwup.
I made the UFO and the parachute.
The parachute is a small power kite I got from here--> http://www.funwithwind.com/store/vie...31&idparent=80

I removed the outer 2 panels on each side to make it more chute like and open more consistently.

The skydiver is a 12" action figure of Mr. Sulu from the latest Star Trek movie. I will be converting it to RC soon so it can be steered on the way down.

Would you mind sharing your build of your sky diver? I'm really interested in doing one also.
