Flybubble note ref. Beamer 3 170: The Gstar doesn't come in a size which can accommodate the Beamer 3 170 standard (packing volume 7310 ccm) or Beamer 3 light 170 (packing volume 6054 ccm). However, Flybubble to the rescue, we took it upon ourselves to try the Beamer 3 170 standard in various front containers to see if any were suitable. The only one we found that was is the Woody Valley Front Reserve Container with Cockpit. This is what we would use to front mount a Beamer 3 170. It's a tight fit, involving compressing the reserve, but we think it's suitable - and High Adventure have also confirmed to us that it is.

Gstar: redefining parachute front containers

Gstar stands for reliable parachute deployment even when the pilot is subjected to high g-forces.

The clever release mechanism facilitates deployment from either side, using either the right or the left hand. The laterally positioned handles are within sight of the pilot and can easily be reached even if the pilot’s upper body is in a reclined/supine position (e.g. when exposed to high g-forces).

Pilots with shorter arms can also reliably deploy their parachute.

Deployment is nearly instant, due to the close connection between the handle and the parachute container. Flexible nylon pins permit the parachute to be deployed with little resistance, in any direction of pull.

The compact design means the pilot will not be obstructed during take off or in-flight.

The stiff handles rest flat on the container and retain their shape even during transport or long-term storage in a compressed glider bag.

The parachute connector (Y-bridle or Beamer 3 riser extension) simultaneously acts as the main hang point. It is enclosed in a protective sleeve and fitted into the side of the container.

Other features

  • Light and compact design
  • Quick and simple installation
  • Long nylon pins to prevent accidental deployment
  • Transparent inspection panels to check pins are secure
  • The parachute connector/main hang point is securely fastened to the parachute container to prevent dislodging
  • Hook-and-loop fastener panel and lanyard to secure flight instruments
  • Compatible with all modern harnesses and parachutes
  • Made in Europe
