In the user profile, a pop-up table appears from which to choose your main canopy. However, the Eiff Classic canopy is not included in that list. This is the dominant accuracy parachute in national competition, and should be included there.

I was also surprised to see it missing, but the Parafoil and Zero listed.

I hate fixed tables like that. And it's a maintenance nightmare for the webmaster to keep it up to date. They need to allow users to just type in their own names if they want, so that if it's missing from the table, you can still enter it manually.

You can... that's what I did.

How did you accomplish that?

When I try it, I start typing "Classic", and as soon as I type the "C" it automatically fills in the box for me with the "Cayenne" table entry. And then it ignores everything else I type. I can't get it to accept a manual entry. It picks what it wants out of the database, and to heck with what I want.

You can select the top option in the canopy drop-down (it is blank) and then type the name of your canopy in the box labeled "other" to the right.


Nice to see another Classic jumper on here!

Aha! The "other" box. I was trying to type it into the blank box for the "main canopy". Doh! Thanks for the tip.
