Accuracy canopies Can't Post

I'm considered trying to do some accuracy, I know my current canopy isn't suitable. What are considered "accuracy canopies", am I right in thinking, they're usually as base canopies, 280sq ??

thanks

just every large 7 cell F111 WL around 0,7 should be right sized for accuracy landings, but those canopies are not for base, with some exceptions.

Are you talking about classic accuracy (as in the real deal, landing on a tuffet and competing). Like this sort of thing: http://www.skydivingstills.com/keyword/accuracy?

There are canopies designed specifically for accuracy. Your best bet for info is to find someone locally that does classic accuracy and talk to him. It's so different from "sport accuracy," where you'd jump a normal canopy... all the guidelines for wingloading and technique are different. This would be a good start for learning too: http://www.styleandaccuracy.com.
