Look for the shadow of the paraglider. Whoops, it's a helicopter!
This is a wonderful tool for teaching children to be fearless skydivers on paragliders.

I was surprised by the "3D" ability of the YouTube video. I didn't know that was possible via YouTube.

Besides that, while flying the virtual paraglider I was virtually terrified that a full or asymmetrical collapse was programed into the simulation and I could fall to my virtual death! :shock: :wtf:

I guess my virtual "active flying" skills were better than I thought. :D :clap: :thumbup: :think:

PS - I expect that no kind of collapse can happen in that PG simulation. After all, is there a collapsible canopy pilot out there that actually believes that their soaring parachute might really deflate on them? :problem:
