Re: [mchamp] PD new canopy "Peregrine"

From the video that Ian put up the Peregrine looks unbelievably twitchy - Maybe 'Responsive' is a politer way of putting it.
Look at the guy coming in at 30 seconds - how fast and precise the canopy roll is with only a tiny amount of input.

Its movement reminds me of seeing a Eurofighter fly - something that is inherently unstable and needs 4 computers to control, but with a wicked performance envelope because of that design.

Going simply from that video it doesn't surprise me in the least that they're limiting who might have access to it. God knows the skydiving public wouldn't limit themselves.


What I want to know is what it's like for groundlaunching big mountains... Sly
