Did you have a chance to fly it? What's the verdict?

For its size, it is very nimble and easy to fly. Wing pressure is by design lower than one would expect as that makes it easier to fly acrobatic style. Fast and powerful. Easy easy pull. Hughes range for flocking. I love it. Thanks Jarno

In flight, i don't need to grip the wing of my ghost3. It's steady with pressure inside foils.

I currently have more wingsuits than I really need but still want to demo a Havok when I get the opportunity. This sounds like a great add the PF line...

Already from way back in January, but here are a few shots of Benoit and myself playing with Havoks over Belgium

Most of the videos Ive posted recently on USA etc also had me flying the Havok for camera/base etc. Very stable and versatile suit!

I belive that no-grippers is *not* the only difference. Internal airpressure is way lower than Ghost3, makes it more nimble to handle. Jarno to comment...

The whole arwingcut is defferent, and actually quite a bit smaller compared to the G3.
The straight/direct lines on the leg and armwings also make it possible to fly the wings with tension (if wanted) allowing for very direct/smooth control.

Ghost3 has a small advantage performancewise, where-as the Havok is the more agile of the two.

Thanx for the compliments. Had great fun shooting and editing.

The lace on Mike's goggles where something he didnt realise was dangling there untill after watching the video. Though seeing as its a slip-on cord, even in case of an entanglement they would probably slip right of the glasses. A few peeps already turned mikes cord into a whole personal vendetta thing and online smear campaign. Which is why its funny to me that on dz.com this lace is discussed more than the 30 cm extention poles with Gopros a lot of people have on the back and front of their head and right or even left ankles on wingsuit skydives and basejumps.Crazy

The stuff Ive seen people jump with in both sports seems to usually only get 'awesome..where did you buy the extender' as a replyTongue
