Wait. Skydiver? or Parachutist? I was imagining a little guy dropping belly first and moving around. For some reason.
If it's a parachute then wouldn't you just mount a servo on the mans chest that pulls down string onto either end of a long parachute. I guess that's what everyone else said. I'm not sure how you would pack that so the parachute doesn't tangle and the strings on the servo don't also get tangled.
