The 82" parachute is
now flown with a .40 size gondola.
1991-1992 I bought my first rc paraplane and really got hooked on the concept of
flying a parachute. The only problem was flight time. (I could never get enough
of it from the electric model.) I searched and could not find anyone offering a
glow powered model. So, I set out to design and build one that would give
me longer flight times. It took a while and at one point I almost gave up. But,
as it turned out the result was worth all the aggravation it took to get the
final design complete. The project was a success and
before I knew it. The model was a hit at the field. That was then... Today
I am still building the same model (known as the Sea Breeze) for modelers all
over the world and because of the many request to carry a payload up to 30
oz.(mainly a camera system) I have designed 2 larger parachutes know
as the Sea Breeze 82" and the Sea Breeze 120". In an effort to keep the cost
down and make the 120" model more affordable. I have put together a full size
set of Gondola plans with detailed instructions including color
construction photos to make the building process easy to
follow. The Sea Breeze .46 Gondola has been
designed to be easy to build and when finished will require a 120" RTF Sea
Breeze parachute to fly. More
information about the 120" parachute can be found at: http://www.seabreezeparachutes.com/sb120parachutes.html

A RTF parachute
comes sewn rigged and test flown to insure your success.
You can order a RTF Sea Breeze
parachute in a solid or multi color layout. Because the parachutes are sewn
when ordered you can select the color layout you want for your

You may design the
color layout for your parachute. The parachute has 18 bays and I recommend that
one color be used for a minimum of 2 bays. This way the color will stand out better. The most common colors used are
red, blue, light blue, green, yellow, black, white and
raspberry. Custom parachutes can also be sew. Download the blank
parachute order form and open it in MS Paint Brush
and add the colors you would like
to the drawing. Then email it and a quote will be sent back to you along with payment information.
When ordering be sure you let me know what size parachute your
Placing a RTF
parachute order by email is the first step. Parachutes are started when a
minimum 50% deposit is received. In
most cases parachutes are completed 3 to 4 days after the start date.
Every effort is made to get parachute orders sewn rigged and
test flown ASAP to stay ahead of the demand. Once a parachute has been test flown pictures
will be sent of the test flight and the balance is due. When the balance is received the parachute is
shipped. You can send the full payment and avoid any delay if you would
