I don't know if this could be done, but, if it were possible to do this. Would you like to have Remote Controlled Parachute's added to G2 and be able to compete in multiplayer contest with these rc parachute's?

SSSSHHHHHHHHHHHH nobody's supposed to know that!
Actually I placed 2 poles because I placed the first one in the wrong area. I tried to delete the first one but couldn't, thus 2 poles.
Yea, (if it were possible), I personally think that having rc parachute's in G2 would be a cool thing. Thanks for taking the time to place your vote.

Just wanted to add this. The reason I even thought of trying to get rc parachute's into G2 is. I first got interested in rc parachute's when I saw an article in an rc airplane mag. This was a short article about a club that did something for kids at X-mas time at their club.
They let the kids run after parachute's that had candy for the payload for each parachute and they used a large Remote Controlled DC 3 as the drop plane. Anyway after reading this article I ended up making this contraption that I attached to a .60 sized trainer plane that I had. In this contraption I loaded 6 home made foot and a half diameter plastic parachutes. Went out to our flying field, talked to the guys there to let them know what I was planning to do. Ended up working pretty good and everyone there also thought it was pretty cool. Next thing I did was make a home made remote controlled parachute that was about 4 feet in diameter. I figured out how to attach it to a .60 sized biplane that I had. Had a friend of mine fly my biplane and I controlled the rc parachute. Ended up working pretty darn good, until one day I opened the rc parachute way to early and it ended up landing in a water reservoir which was about a 1/4 mile from our rc flying field. Anyway that's how I came to thinking about RC parachutes and maybe trying to see if enough guys might be interested in the same thing and maybe trying to get rc parachutes into G2. I have no idea if, even if a ton of people wanted to have this, that it would even be possible to make rc parachute's work in G2, but what the heck, never know till you try.

Just adding this to be on the safe side.
If by any chance anyone gets idea's from this post and goes out and puts an rc parachute or just regular parachute's in their real RC planes.
Please be SURE that when you go out to the flying field that you let all the other guys at the field know what your planning to do and to get their ok first. Safety First....
