PD Storm swooping Can't Post

Hello everyone Smile
Ive read in the Storm flight characteristics and PD writes: Even though you can
swoop the Storm, you probably wont win any competitions with it.

Has anyone a Storm an swoop with it, has info and maybe a funy video from it ? Smile

Hi
We are using Storms 120 for CRW at about 1.6 lbs/sqft.
As we are passionated swoopers as well we could not resist to hit the lake close to the DZ with the storms.
We also do 270 teamswoops. It seriously got some potential, thanks to its strong dive.

The Storm is not a Velo but I consider it the best overall canopy ever, and very suitable for getting into swooping and still keep doors open for all other disciplines.

Ciao Rome

I got some jumps over WL 1.7.
It was opening, flying and landing OK.

I have a 120 CF Storm I load at 2.0

Given the different trim, short lined canopy, I cant speak to the 'normal' version but I do get a decent surf from mine.

If you dont bring the CF with speed it lands like crap
