What's the difference between the different types of birdman suits (ie. the difference between Classic, GTI, and Skyflyers)? Is it just wing size or other factors as well?

Danger could be my middle name. But it's Paul. Tongue

That is all covered on the BirdMan website, but the simple answer is yes, the wings have greater area as you go up from Classic to GTi to SkyFlyer.

There is a comparison over on the wingsuit forum of the base logic website by a guy that owns both. I have never even seen a crossbow, much less flown one, so I would not be a good judge.

PdF doesnt manufacture them, Parasport Italia did, not at the moment, probably due to some licencing problems with
Loic Jean Albert..

I read on another board that Loic was looking for someone else to sew the suit.

Chris, definitely list it in the classifieds here if you haven't already done so. I am sure someone will scarf it up most rickity-tick.

i am told the crossbow has equal performance to the gti.

style wise it is quite different looking than birdman suits.
