We had another Velocity collapse today at the Cal state record

Why are the organizers allowing such an aggressive canopy on such a large formation?

Even at a "light" Velo loading around 2:1, it is still a hyper aggressive canopy and is tough to fly through traffic (without having to hang in serious brakes or trying to weave through the pattern with speed).

The only time I've ever had problems with a Velo's stability is going through turbulence in moderate to deep brakes or flying one where the trim was going out. And in the case of a high performance canopy, what I consider out of trim is what most jumpers wouldn't even notice on their Sabre2s or Pilots.
