And $3 for a role of ductape that works as a lifetime supply for your flysight mounting needs. Just sayinTongue

plus the duct tape can be used for a boatload of other stuff...
don't know about the mount, but is it "reusable" easily, as in "change helmets frequently" for example ?

Nice!!! I like:
- "Glide angle of 4,5"
- "I pull at 2500ft, which is a very safe altitude as I don't jump a BASE rig"

Now let's have the Pilatus Porters here in Switzerland upgraded with a "wing rack", just like our buses have ski racks.

Wanted to add:
Why debate about the Flysight mount (Velcro and/or tape do the job perfectly) and wingsuits with handles covered when this man does such a performance with all that stuff on his chest and controls done by bare hand and feet? Not to mention his age, and experience.... THIS perspective makes my weekend bright!
