Re: I'm not scared of heights but......
LOL crash-10 yes it sucks, you're hitting the ground at about 24 fps. They always say at airborne school "it's like jumping off a two story building." I didn't believe em till I worked out the math for myself... they weren't lying, you're going about that fast when you free fall from a two story building. Theoretically anyhow...
MC-6 on the other hand... closer to civilian canopy, it's a directional chute with about 8 kts of forward movement, you can head into the wind and flare for landing... relatively soft.
