Birdman Blade? Can't Post

On the "products" page of the Bird-man website they have something listed called "Blade". Underneath the logo it says "Prepare. January 2007". There is no other info. What is the Blade? ...is it the next Skyflyer?

I guess we'll just have to prepare ourselves for January 2007.

Way back when they were going to call the S-5 the Blade. I think it was supposed to be made out of the same material that caused all the problems with the Phi though right?

I'd be amazed if this Blade is the same thing...

Is that why you are selling your S6? I heard at the DZ that a new product was going to be released soon by BM.

I think this is a good idea for the new "Blade" Grippers on the outside of the arms and inflating megabooties.

Check http://www.birdmantopgun.com for photos of earlyer prototypes of the Blade.

Our team got to test these new suits from Birdman.
The prototypes, seen in these stills, had some new experiments in wing design (angle of the wing, different profile attachment of the legwing etc), which we where asked to test, try and comment on.

The suits seen here are quite different from what will be the final suit.

The pictures should speak for themselves, but when we've flown the first production model by the end of this month, we'll post more info..

I'm guessing the blades make up the core with, what looks like, an S-6/ S-3 on each wing of the formation?
