Description
The Sentry is a 9 Cell Zero Porosity canopy. This canopy can satisfy a wide range of skydivers. For the novice that wants to land soft and straight in, to the experienced skydiver where a swoop landing may be desired. The smooth slow on heading openings are suitable for everyone from the novice to the Professional Cameraman. The Sentry also incorporates the NEW ONE PIECE END RIB / STABILIZER . This stabilizer was introduced into our Powered Parachute Line in 1998 and has proven very effective in reducing stabilizer noise while in full flight. The Sentry is a very stable, solid airfoil, something you've come to expect from Flight Concepts, and with quality that is second to none this may be the canopy for you.

Great first canopy 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: dmhmetreo, 2013-06-05


This is my first canopy (beer!). I have 30 jumps on it now. From what I have heard this canopy is marketed to compete with Sabre2 and the Pilot. I dont have any first hand experience with the other 2 but can compare to other people I am flying with who are at a similar WL. The canopy I have is a 190 at WL of 0.98:1. It doesnt feel super sporty but that could be due to my WL. Turns are not fast - I wish they were faster. It seems to fall fast and landings seem pretty fast. I usually beat others to the ground even if they have slightly higher WL. It really seems to sink in a toggle turn and toggle turns are terribly slow compared to front riser. Maybe thats normal. Only complaint is the snivel is >1000' but that is probably due to the way I pack the slider or some other aspect of packing. The positive is that the openings are super soft. The negative is that usually during snivel, it starts bucking and usually will do a 180 on full open. Again this is probably due to my pack job.

More to come once I try out the competitors.

Great Transition Canopy 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: coldsteel, 2012-10-20


I am pleased with the sturdy construction and performance of this FC product. It flys almost as well as a PD Silhouette.....similar performance and nearly as easy to pack. Those qualities make it a solid choice for some looking for a reasonably priced mid-performance-range canopy. Excellent choice for someone transitioning from rental gear to first rig. Red at Flight Concepts does a pretty good job with customer service....... if you keep after him.

Sentry 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: deathwish603, 2010-07-05


I had my first jump on a brand new FC Sentry canopy, and we been droped away from the DZ, when I opened the canopy and figured where I was, I was sure about making it back to the field, but NOT to the target! I coudnt belive my eyes, when I made it back, completed a landing patern and had a softest landing
straight on target in a couple of years of skydiving and dozens of different canopies and sizes I tried through the years !!! And I had it when a couple of more experienced jumpers didnt even made it to the DZ!!! NOW, the bad side of a story. When I ordered it, I selected a colors and all the options I wanted, I discused it with a FC rep and we got some aggriments, then, 6 weeks later, when my order should be shipped, I called 'em up and found out, that nobody even started it yet, and have no idea about my order! Then, 3 days later, Im getting a call from FC, and they telling me that nobody started it yet, cause they dont have a color I ordered in stock, and it will take 'em 3 month to get this color and 6 more weeks to make it! or if I like they can make it in some other colors! I sended 'em a pic. of my container and asked 'em which color
will match the best, they e-mailed me a color, and when I got a little concerned about a match, they said its a browsers fault, it destroys the colors, etc. And when I got it,(4 month later!) IT DIDNT MATCH!!! IF IT WONT TAKE 'EM SO LONG TO DO IT, OR BE HONEST ABOUT IT FROM A 1st
DAY, I COULD BE A LOT HAPPIER! SO IF U PICK A THIS NICE CANOPY FOR YOUR RIG, DONT BE EXITED ABOUT GETTING IT ON NEXT DAY...
YOU BEEN WARNED, USE WITH CAUTION !!!
