V3 - anyone have one (production) yet?
Having recently placed my order for a V3, I'm eager to hear the feedback of those (non-PF employees/test jumpers) who have already received theirs.
Though I bought it solely for BASE purposes, I'm curious if anyone has flown theirs in a skydiving/flocking environment. Is it easier to flock with than the V2? I know some people have no problem flocking in V2s, but a lot of people I know have a hard time due to the lack of lift at slow forwards speeds. The promo-material for the V3 seems to indicate the bigger armwings help alleviate this.

I consider the PF guys trustworthy enough to design and build a suit that I will be trusting my life to (in a way). If you plan to start WS base you may want to do a few with your acro before getting bigger wings.
In fact I highly recommend you get the shadow leg wing-mod for the acro, regardless if you base it or not. Have you noticed the few people with new custom acros that have more leg wing? A little bird told me it is a sweet combination.

I don't know when the Caravan returns but Ritzville is a great DZ. Warm weather, no fog in summer, no s&t mill. I'm likely to NOT get a V-3 (see, still on topic) but prolly a Raptor PDQ and keep the V-2.
