Re: Stabo Rig What the hell are you talking about!! ???
Re: Stabo Rig Its a wicked new sex toy, actually its not, its a way of hanging guys off of a rope from a helicopter.
Re: Stabo Rig You posted in the Naafi bar so I assume you don't want a straight answer, so you can choose your favorite from the following...........
1. Get out more!!
2. Try ringing hardware stores in Hereford!!
3. Last time I hung anyone off my helicopter they burn't down the Iranian embassy and the budget holder said we wern't allowed to do it again.
4. Do you own your own helicopter?
5. What the HELL are you talking about??
Re: Stabo Rig I did want a serious answer I just didn't know where to post it. *I'm interested to know as if that rope breaks its a friend of mine who has to go and cut them out.
Re: Stabo Rig why don't you practise with action men first.
Re: Stabo Rig Err sounds very sad but we're interested to know things like if the bloke at the bottom breaks his leg on impact, how critical is it to extricate the upper 3 before treating the broken guy etc.
Re: Stabo Rig just shoot the helicopter down, allow it to land on all the men, then problem solved!
Re: Stabo Rig Intresting concept of crash rescue :)
Re: Stabo Rig I think you may mean the SPY rig (could be Spy - dunno if it is a description or an acronym).
That definitely can have people on it hanging one above the other and I think it replaced the STABO rig (which went out of fashion during the Vietnam era?).
Despite showing this lamentable nerdishness, I would like to concur with my right honourable friend (well Vermin actually) that you do probably need to get out more! ;)
