  2. Hi, after my first flight course I had lot (approx. 50) flights with my Prodigy 2. They went quite well. After that I switched to an used Phantom 2. There the flights were ok, too. But now I've bought a new Piranha 4 and it doesn't feel so well at all. The suit fits, I got pressure on my booties on the ground. But in the air, it seems, that I'm stalling my legwing. No pressure at all. Sometimes it feels like there was no legwing at all. The flights are also quite unstable (wobbling from front to back or from side to side). However, the plain data doesn't look too bad: Glide ratio: 1,8 Airtime: about 120 seconds between exit (13.000 ft) and deployment (about 5.000 ft) Distance: approx 3 - 3,5 miles horizontal speed: 94 miles/hour vertical speed: 55 miles/hour. Any suggestions? What might I be doing wrong?

  4. Today
  5. Tennessee governor Bill Lee (R) signed the permitless carry legislation into law back in the summer. Gunman Uk Thang, with no prior felony conviction, opened fire in a Kroger store in Collierville, TN, a couple of days back, killing one person and injuring 15. Gov. Lee said Friday: “The constitutional carry bill applies to law-abiding citizens,” he said. “What happened yesterday was criminal activity, violent criminal gun activity." Fascinating twist of logic.
  6. Great pic! He must be freezing his hands off.

  8. Hi, This is probably a long shot. Is there a canopy that would open like an Echo (Fluidwings), but flares like a Sabre2 ?? Thanks, Phil B-49110

  10. Despite having a disability in one of your arms, if you are able to move it, then you are using muscles. And if the problem you have is due to fatigue and/or weakness, that is (at least in part) a muscle issue. Muscles can be strengthened with exercises that 1) mimic the particular motion that is current is weak, and 2) provide load resistance in the same direction that currently is weak. Maybe not to the point where it is as strong as your other arm, but almost certainly stronger than it is now. So maybe (in addition to other's suggestions above, like keeping your hands close to your midline, and using your good arm for most things before you land) try to do exercises like pulling down against an elastic, or on a weight machine configured to raise the weights when you are moving your arm downward in a way that is identical to what you do when you flare.
  11. Apparently, you can also fool all of some people all of the time. -Definitely no one famous.

    No, he was a manager though. When the DZO wanted to sell BH walked away and the DZ closed. Proving that trolls are not necessarily stupid people.

    Wasn’t BH a DZO? I may have to call BS on the whole ‘deepest thinkers’ claim if so.

    DZOs are the deepest thinkers in the sport. You will never understand unless you fall into the dark side.
  16. Doesn't matter what the AZ audit produced, just lie, lie, lie: https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1441923212175097857/pu/vid/480x270/hqGPa18MzCIIzW68.mp4

    I've never had much luck understanding what was going on in most DZOs' minds

    I am not alarmed that they remove themselves. Good riddance. What alarms me is that they endanger others due to their selfishness.
  19. my opinion, and what i would do if it were me that couldn't flare all the way every time, for whatever reason, would be to go to a 190 or maybe a 210 since i still have a 210. if i found that i could not flare while on final, the extra material would likely mean the difference between walking away and being carried away. but you do you. good luck.
  20. I think that these contacts where based on that very special personal bond that forms between longtime professional players. As often encountered: new guy buys old company, longtime partners go with the blink of an eye...
  21. Yes. You win the SC Fields Medal.

    You are totally correct. Your free jump is hereby reinstated.
  25. OTOH, estimates were of about 2000 or so people at today’s rally in Georgia. Hopefully they had to come from far and wide to get that many people Wendy P.

    It’s people who know what they know (whether or not it’s true), and look for evidence to confirm it instead of considering they might have something to learn. Kind of like that “audit” in Arizona Wendy P.
