This is a simple sail/power kite/parashute. It works in wind and it is great fun once you get the hang of it.it has great pull and can lift you from the ground if you run from a hill.

Step 1: Making It

It takes 10mins to make the tarp parachute. Materials:two 8ft by6ft tarps,zip ties,string/twine. First step is to line the tarps together to make the tarps 16ft long.combine them both in the center with zipties (make sure the tarp has those metal holes).step 2 as sting on the top and bottom of each side of the tarps.then tie a knot with each ends of each tarp then you're done.

Step 2: Flying

You need wind to fly it.go against the wind. Want to maybe fly run and jump off a hill.
Luann I have a video
<p>Interesting, can you post some video?</p>
<p>Let us know when you get out of the hospital...</p>
Vincent this thing is dangerous so warning everyone it would hurt on a landing
<p>I would never leave the ground with this thing. I know how badly those tarps are made. Get a <a href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/T10C-PARACHUTE-VERY-GOOD-COMPLETE-RISERS-AND-SUSPENSION-LINES-NOT-DEMILLED-/141527844439?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20f3b78657" rel="nofollow">real parachute.</a></p>
<p>Perhaps this would be interesting if it had more details.</p>
Gale f I will put it on YouTube my YouTube name is minecraftcutfilms
<p>Perhaps a video of this working?</p>
<p>Watch that you don't get carried away too high in a strong wind. This thing will make you lift up, but it will not help touching ground gently : if you get too high (i.e. 5 or 10 meters;) you may well hurt you bad and break a limb or something to that effect &hellip; </p>
Zombtech yeah this kite parashute has a lot of pull so if you have a skateboard and wind it will work great
I'll add some more details
<p>Can you add some details about your build and perhaps some more illustative pictures?</p>
<p>All you need now is some wind and a skateboard </p>
