Controlled descent - parafoil

  1. Feb 8, 2007 #1
    I'm working on a project that requires 1.2lb(approx.)-payload to be descended by a parafoil. The parafoil needs to have 2 control lines which will be steered by a servomotor. However, I dont know what parafoil to use, nor where to buy it from (even after countless number of searches online). I really need help on this. Thank you very much.
