Human Catapult Can't Post

The human catapult used to launch jumpers over the edge of the New River Gorge Bridge at Bridge Day 2012-2014 is about to be dismantled and sold off for parts unless someone is interested in taking over. You can read more about it in the classified (Misc.) section of this forum and contact me through that link. I would hate to see it end up without a home since we have moved on to other things.

This thing would be sweet on WS exit with a 2 sec rock drop, giving much more separation than a standard "push."

If you could use the forward speed to start flying, it would be amazing, too. :)

Sold to a non-jumper. Sad to see it go. But I'm sure you'll all enjoy some never before seen video of all the crazy things we did with it, including launching Lonnie Bissonette in his wheelchair, wingsuits, 2-ways, etc.
