We dressed our drop tower dummy

We dressed a dummy, what can I say. It's odd, I know. A solid steel weight is not a good representation in the drop tower for real life scenarios but it can help isolate certain tests. However, we want a more fun and a more realistic dummy. For $300, this was a good test to see if we want a person shaped weight, which did work for some tests as long as we had the full body harness. If we put a normal harness then the dummy would be hanging in a 45 degree angle if we were lucky and it might hit our master point or the ibeam I still need to remove. What dummy should I use in the drop tower and how?

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
