Suborbital skydiving! ! x100
I wanna do it too! That's some serious free fall time.
Fun thing is, last guy I think did this wasn't even a skydiver and essentially learned how to fall properly on his way down. Falling properly in a
stable position is pretty key for a smooth ride. Once you know how to stabilize, you can have lots of fun in a whole 3 dimensional playground, going
back to a stable position between acrobatics.
Holy cow! i just realized, guy will be going so fast, he'll prolly have to pull at 10,000 ft to get good deployment and have margin for reserve if
there's a malfunction. Wow!
I usually pull at 3000 ft when jumping from 12-15k, and get full deployment around 1500 ft with lots of room for set up and landing.
I bet he's going to toss a drogue to slow and pop main.
