Wingsuit Helmet launch at Carolinafest Can't Post

Good news for all you folks that have been bugging me to demo Flysights. We have formed new partnerships with both Sky Shot Designs and Flysight to provide a helmet combo specifically for wingsuiters which includes a Flysight and built in speaker. Just grab it and go! Of course it includes a Go Pro because it wouldnt make sense to jump without recording the show.

If you are interested, we are going to be at Carolinafest with FREE demos!

More information and pricing can be found by email me at Wickey@WickedWingsuits.com

It will probably cost an abnormal amount of money for what a helmet should cost and could be easily replicated for a tenth of the money with a homemade version.

This post makes me laugh... Renting just about anything anything is more expensive than the actual cost of ownership. The source of the rented item has costs associated and took the risk putting something together and maintaining it. As as example I bought a 18" chainsaw for about $200 but before that, thought about renting one for a day at a rate of $45. Well, made sense to buy in my case since I need it more long term but if I only needed it for that one day or was not sure if it made more sense to own, the smaller investment works out.

If what WW is noting is there, Helmet (~$200), Flysight (~$250), Speaker and mounting stuff for Flysight (~$25), GoPro (~$200).. Lets just round the cost to $600. If you don't have the components and want to try it out in this configuration renting for a day or longer for what is likely less than the needed ~$600 to set your own up can make sense....

Samhadi, go build your helmet and tell us honestly what it cost you in money and time, and how much you evaluate your hourly work time. A tenth would hardly be the raw material. Plus the tooling and accessories, plus the time.

As you wish. What I think is uber cool about the helmet is all the sizes have the same outer main shell and a range of universal mounts.

If anyone out there is coming to Carolinafest let me know because I would like someone to review the setup. I think this is a remarkable helmet and those that saw it at the Expo seemed to feel the same way.

yeah if you want to use it once then it makes sense to rent (or borrow!). I would think the usefulness of a flysight would obtain from multiple flights over days and weeks of progression, but I'm sure its fun to play with the helmet toy for one day.

haaaaaaaave fun (thats whats important Wink).
