RFB with the IDA-72

Earlier Photo of RFB With IDA-72
       This is an image taken at an earlier date than those below. The helium bottle is still attached to the bottom of the shell.



IDA-72 & Helium Bottle Piggybacked on 80 cu ft Bailout Bottle
        The aluminum 80 cu ft tank (compressed air) is set up as a stage-rig bailout system. The Helium bottle is tethered to the 80 via a "Super Pony Tamer" system. I'm afraid the Images on these pages were taken sort of "helter-skelter" without too much thought to loose dangling lines . . . doesn't look too professional.



IDA-72 With 19 cu ft Bailout Bottle
        Here the aluminum 19 cu ft tank (compressed air) is set up as a stage-rig bailout system.

        The same set up as seen in the previous image, showing a side view of the IDA-72. I selected the Zeagle Tech Diver as the BCD which was the easiest to adapt to the shell of the IDA-72, at least with what was easily obtainable locally.
