LEARN PROFESSIONAL R&D from HARRIS and HELP DELIVER RELIEF AID to people
around the world. This is a TSP FB Forum COMMUNITY Sourced Project. Let
me put modesty aside for a second and say that I do professional
Research and Development (R&D). Everything I have ever done in my life
has never been done before. People come to me for stuff and ask, "can
this be done, how can we do this, how about this." and I give the NO BS
answers and or I get contracted to do R&D, to find the answers, and my
R&D is VERY fast compared to what a corporation does. I bring serious
changes to businesses and other efforts.
This is a FOLLOW UP and what to come from the post on this forum (below)
that starts with "I AIN'T GOT TIME TO BLEED. Help HARRIS" So go read
that. That part is DONE, it was done in 1/2 a day because of YOU... TSP
people FOUND the people in about 2 hours that would of taken me 2 days
of email and calling. The power of TSP (1234).
So...we have this project. Which is basically, "How to Make a 10 cent 1
time use parachute to drop 10, 20, 40 pounds of relief supplies 'on a
soccer field' from an air plane and then allow the chute to be used as a
sun shade or rain tarp. How to make this, from what, and then how to
show everyone in the world how to replicate this and deliver aid. You
might have a plane with 1200lbs of aid in it, but the idea is you can
throw it out the plane 40 lbs at a time, it lands 'soft enough' and you
just got aid to people without a helicopter. We are going to do this,
document it, and publish it for free on youtube for anyone to use around
the world as an instructional" This Intellectual Property (IP) is being
released into the PUBLIC DOMAIN FOR FREE. It is NOT being sold. We are
NOT selling 'chutes'. Since its public domain, if you want to make and
sell these 'cheap chutes' for delivery of anything then you are welcome
to do it....but I'm not. This could be a side gig for someone, if it
enriches your life and helps people help people...then great. I'm sure
some places doing aid relief don't have time or desire to 'tie up a
SO, I'm BUSY right now doing stuff that I have to do. I don't have TIME
to do 100% of this project. I have time to do 10% of this project. So
what I am going to do is have YOU (yes YOU) step up and help. You are
going to do the drop testing from a bridge or something else high, you
might have friends with an air plane and will do some 10lb test drops
out the door. You might want to do this with your kids or boy scout
troop, you just might want to do this on your own or with friends. I
guarantee it will be FUN. *NO* College degree needed, but you have to be
smarter than the average bear yogi and must have confidence in yourself.
I don't care if you fail, but I doubt you will, but you have to have
faith and confidence that you will succeed and that you will solve and
over come problems and issues. One toothed hillbilly rednecks are
WELCOME. "Hey grandson, you want you and me and the dog to go and drop
some stuff off the bridge over yonder for this fellow on facebook?" is
just fine. You are welcome....working on your Ph.D in astrophysics, you
are welcome. Did you work on the space shuttle and are retired? You are
welcome. Single mother that wants to show her kids that YOU CAN DO
ANYTHING in this WORLD and YOU can Learn Anything !! WELOME. Are you 14
and reading this and saying "Dad dad dad dad can we do this please
please please...." wonderfully welcome.
I will guide you, I will talk to you, video chat, write to you, take
photos and video and demonstrate for you. I will ENABLE you to do 1
test, then another. Then we grow from there. Multiple people or groups
around the USA (or world) can do this. One group might do 'bed sheets'
(no joke) one might do it out of 4 mil plastic. One might do the 40
pound 'buckets' one might do the 5 pound ones. Its open. I'm looking for
people to step up...but you got to have a place, at least 100 feet, to
drop things from. Got a bridge near you where people base jump from ??
That's a good place. Even a cliff. I don't know, but YOU DO.
These chutes are made from plastic, bed sheets, string and a 5 gallon
bucket from walmart or home depot. You might have to buy the bucket, I'm
NOT sending that to you....and maybe the string...and your gasoline...
you'll have some skin in the game. ...but in the future when you see on
the news that some hurricane just blew XXXX off the map and you see
someone dropping 40lb buckets of relief supplies with rectangle 5 line
chutes out of a Cessna air plane you'll point at that and say, "I helped
I will teach you how to do Professional Harris Style R&D and you'll have
a blast. This is an experience to be shared with others. I'll put videos
and photos and info on HarrisChute1234.com or HarrisDrop1234.com or
something. I'm not making any money on this so I might as well put my
name on it LOL.....
FROM MY 1st POSTING BELOW ( I ain't go time to bleed post) Go read it if
you have not seen it.
Ok. I have DETAILED ANSWERS from Parachute Experts and I'm all Dialed
IN. This is going to be a TSP Community Development Project I'm not
going to do a great deal of hands on (but some) but others around the
USA are going to do the testing and I'm going to teach them how to do
the R&D, professional R&D, and this will be a TSP FB project. People who
never thought they could do this stuff, will be able to and will love
it. We are going to start dropping things with chutes and documenting
them. Roy Ramey and other people have already stepped up to help with
the drop testing and others have stated they can't help physically or
don't have the time or the location but they will contribute
financially. WHICH IS GREAT. You can simply purchase an item or items
and send to me. I'll get it configured, hooked up, documented and then
the 'package' will go to a set of 'volunteers' who will do some drop
testing. We need some tools to measure what we are doing, to bench mark
what we are doing, and to video document what we are doing (so you all
can see the video HERE of this being developed).
So, below are some of the things we need for testing and you can buy one
or two, or all, but really, I want people to be able to individually
contribute, even if its 1 $8 microSD card on amazon. So if not enough
people buy things 1 at a time you can buy the rest later for us.
So, if you WANT to buy something. PM ME on FB, tell me what you want to
buy, and you can buy it and just have it shipped to me directly. I do
NOT need money from you sent to me. Right now, we only need ONE of the
'sets' of stuff below. It can be shipped from group to group. If we need
more, a 2nd or 3rd set, then I will present the need and why to the
1st Lesson in R&D. Bechmark the competition or a known reference or what
is currently being used.
From HERE: https://the-rocketman.com/chutes-html/ I
need a 4 foot chute and a 9 foot chute. That's a 5 pound and a 40 pound
chute. What this does, is we record the data on THESE chutes that we
have known numbers for, then we make our version of the chute (a simple
rectangle of plastic or bed sheet) and then we compare our chute results
to the KNOWN results of the KNOWN chute and then we have a base line to
start from and now if we want a '20 lb chute' we can use the data from
the professional chute and adjust our size to get close to the
performance of the pro chute without having to buy one. One of the
things this does, is it allows us to calculate or cd or (coefficient of
drag) for our improvised chute. All we need is a 4 and a 9, so let me
know if you want to get one of these.
2nd Lesson in R&D. Instrumentation on EVERYTHING. Measure EVERYTHING.
"Man that hit hard" is NOT a scientifically accurate data collection
method. How many Joules of energy did it with? How fast was it falling,
how long to the chute opened.
$110 We need ONE of the Altimeter 3's. This is an all in one incredible
solution for telling us EVERYTHING about dropping the bucket with the
chute on it. Fall speed, drop speed, time to chute open, everything. Its
a little miracle in a box that we do not have to INVENT.
https://www.apogeerockets.com/…/…/Jolly-Logic-AltimeterThree ( This
has already been purchased by a TSP Contributor !!) ...but you can look
at it on the site. (many details here, interesting to read). It also on
Sport Action Came $75 each (go pro clone). I own these cams, use them
all the time. We need 5 of these for documentation so everyone on TSP
can see the videos of what TSP is doing. We are going to start by
dropping 5 gallon buckets with different weights. 5lbs, 10, 20, 40lbs.
These cameras will document the event. (read lesson #2 above) 1 pointing
up at the chute, 1 looking sideways at the horizon, 1 looking straight
down through a hole in the bottom of the bucket. and 1 for showing the
people dropping it off the bridge and it falling down.... and 1 for the
person on the ground recording it falling. https://amzn.to/2ZX176w I'm
going HEAVY on video because EVERYONE doing this, wants a copy of what
they did, we need it for engineering, and all of you want to see it on
the forum or the website. This *IS* a professional Engineering EFFORT.
We are, you are, going to be doing REAL Engineering.
$12 each...and 5 memory cards. Need 5 of these https://amzn.to/2ZLmgV9 and
1 of these $10 card reader https://amzn.to/31cev8w and
2 of these $18 Tripod https://amzn.to/2A2TUY4 for
110lb Scale $25 And we all need the same scale. To weigh the test
objects. Again, Instrumentation. https://amzn.to/2QcJal5 I
already OWN one of these scales, which, is why I know its awesome. So if
you want to buy this, tell me, but hold off a bit, because I'll tell you
who the 1st test team is and you can send the scale directly to them.
You are FREE to pick and choose any thing you want to purchase, 0
things, 1 thing, etc.... if you are wealthy, I almost do not want you to
buy ALL things because I want other people on TSP FB forum to feel like
they can 'contribute.'.... but if you did want to buy it all, I'd
suggest you pick up what they do not. I'm turning this into a community
If you are fragile like a teacup, if you have to have a safe space, if
direct language and plain speaking is too harsh for you and you've
filled out a HURT FEELINGS report before than this is NOT for you. If
you want to think, learn, try, decide, try again, make mistakes, learn
learn learn, figure it out, watch it and see what happens and then try
to figure out WHY it did that and you want to involve others in what you
are doing to set an example to them....then JOIN. Say I'm IN. If you are
sensitive, a teacup, a snowflake... I will make you cry. If you have a
child or family member that is labelled by society as autistic, ADHD or
whatever...make sure YOU include them. They are 'probably' labelled like
this because they are smart as sh*t but they live in their own world
because the regular world is too damn boring to them. The stuff you'll
do with them here, they will eat it up like candy, this is another
world. The only thing more fun than dropping crap off a high place is
making your own fire works. We'll save that for later.
3rd Lesson in R&D. Don't EVER STOP.
So Alice. The rabbit hole is in front of you. What do you want to do?
The Red Pill or the BLUE Pill. ??
Do any of you have any ideas or suggestions for me on this 'community
aspect' to the project. Please comment below.
p.s. Keep in mind....it took me 2.5 hours to write this, and over an
hour or the 1st post that lead to this one.
