In an attempt to mitigate the spin we saw with our last manned Ballute jump, we made and tested a small-scale design, which is sown from two sections – top and bottom, rather than single continuous gores. This, we hope, allows better alignment of air intake pockets, which we expect caused the spin on the previous design.
