Candy Drops & Parachuting Teddy Bears

Postby SkyClimbers » Fri, Oct 16 2015, 10:51 AM

I'd really like to add candy drops & the ability to launch small teddy bears/small toys on parachutes to our kite club family fun flys.

Is there a person or place to buy the rigging for these, or to have them made? I've found several "how to" sites but I'd rather go with someone who knows what they're doing. :up:

:thanks:
Good Winds,

Big Mike has a pretty simple one that we use for 180Go! candy drops. Only down side is you usually need two people for the drop. Maybe you can email him or Anne for some pictures.

I wish I had been able to have the time at our festival to get a good look at it but I'll make it to other festivals next year so hopefully I can steal get some good ideas. ;)

I should be able to come up with a second person for the drops. The big mystery to me is what rigging works best.
