T28 Emergency Chute

I modified my T28 with an emergency chute, located in the canopy. I have
made 14 emergency chute drops so far. See attached pictures.

It would be really cool to have it set-up to launch when the receiver looses connection ... to save your plane from a Brownout.

Ya know...I look at this and thinks it's cool and all...but in order to safely use the parachute you either need a system that activates it automatically when radio signal is lost or have enough altitude to manually trigger the parachute before the plane hits the ground. Seriously, most of us who crash don't have the luxury of being 100' in the air and saying "Now would be a good time for an emergency parachute".

In reality, what you really need to invent is an AIR BAG system that activates once your plane meets the ground. Maybe that would help reduce the number of pieces you have to pick up after the crash.

Fun idea...thanks for sharing.
