Re: [kgb25] Is swooping pushing the envelope?

In reply to:
no way is it pushing it, the problem is there is no progressive steps

There are plenty of progressive steps.

Canopies are generally sold in 10-20 square foot size increments (with a few vendors willing to make in-between sizes) and several degrees of responsiveness to control input and tendency to dive.

Any size of diving front riser turn is possible starting at 0 degrees with flatter turns before or after allowing curved speed inducing maneuvers that aren't multiples of 90 degrees to fit into a standard landing pattern.
