    Strix vs Freak 2 vs ATC

    In related news, Tony Suits is doing a lot of work it looks like. New website, new suits coming out in this category (R-Bird Pro 2, Hog). It's really cool to see them making a comeback (at least here on the west coast, I'm sure they've always been present in FL). The USA has re-entered the wingsuit World Brand Wars!

    Aon2 X2 or Dekunu One for Wingsuiting

    This is one thing that pissed me off about their mount. I already own Chutingstar wedge mount. But it's not possible to mount Dekunu on it without the velcro wrap. I'd rather just buy velcro wrap for Dekunu and use my wedge mount. At least it's sturdier.

    classified ads

    Was your ad initially a paid ad? If it wasn't, then there is something wrong that we need to adjust. The way it works currently is that there are packages we can set up. We can choose whether an ad package has a paid or free renewal. The problem is that while we can select for paid ads to have free renewal, we can't offer the ability to renew as a paid feature again. So it's a bit of a double edged sword. We can make it renew for free, but that isn't going to work for those looking to renew as a feature again. Or we can allow for paid renewal so featured ads can be renewed to be paid features, but then those looking to renew for free suffers. We're trying to find a way to offer both options. But we're also limited by the plugin that we are using.

    Thunderbow manual needed

    Anyone just happen to have a Thunderbow manual they’d be willing to part with or copy? I sure could used the help in finding one. Tried the history gang but thought this place might get better results.

    AAD fires

    Super simple - follow the rules, stay altitude aware. If you having AAD fires on student jumps - whether the fire is an instructor or students then something went wrong. Brushing it under the carpet does nothing to improve safety, allowing lessons to be learned and passed on to others to avoid repeats is probably beneficial. As to the disciplinary action - I'd like to see that data on how often and for what reasons USPA disciplinary action has been taken over the past 20 years.

    AAD fires

    Not sure what "Skewed" means to you. I do agree that this poll does not represent what may be the total. I said that. I attempted to gather as many facts as I cude and use that to come to a reasonable conclusion. I put a hypothetical number on this for some kind of a base. Is it accurate? Doubtful. What it does represent is high probability of less than 1% of jumps done have an AAD fire. Is that number rite? maybe, maybe not. Is this a reason to mandate a report for an AAD fire and possible disciplinary action by the USPA? Not IMO....

    opinions for a cherry jumper

    Also its an option to get a container that accommodates bigger canopies and then getting it re-harnessed to fit you. The container determines the canopies that can be safely packed in it and the harness is designed to accommodate the jumper. So you may find a container that would fit the canopies but was made for a smaller person or a huge person. If the price is right you can buy the container and send it back to the manufacturer to be re-harnessed to your dimensions.

    opinions for a cherry jumper

    Gowlerk detailed one of the points which is the cap tends to sit up because the pilot chute material is stuffed into the spring to minimize the potential of coil lock. Other container designs tend to pull the material out of the spring and hence can the cap compressed down a bit for semi-exposed pilot chutes making it easier to look good, and its not really an issue if the pilot chute is covered by additional flaps such as Vector 3, Mirage, Infinity etc. To do a good job and make wings containers look neat takes more work. If there are lots of wings on the DZ - the riggers probably get good at seating them or they all look shitty.

    opinions for a cherry jumper

    As was noted, any rig made in the past 10 years or so will likely be 'freefly friendly.' Is where you are jumping now likely to be where you jump in the future? I know military folk tend to get moved around more than the rest of us. What is popular at your DZ? What do the local riggers normally pack? While there are some variations among rigs, for the most part it's a 'preference' issue. And having a type that your rigger is familiar with and comfortable packing is a plus. Bigger rigs are out there, you just have to look harder & longer.

    AAD fires

    Your numbers are highly skewed by the fact that few people are participating in your poll. It's value as data is nearly zero.
  26. gowlerk

    opinions for a cherry jumper

    Many riggers find it hard to make the cap sit nicely on Wings compared to other similar designs. It's not impossible, but more difficult. The good news is that the larger the container the easier it is. Since you will be wanting larger canopies it shouldn't be that much of an issue.

    AAD fires

    Well, a few specific, witnessed fires, quite a few more "I heard, was told" references and a riggers experience. All told, 17 witness fires and possible 7. Total of 24 from this impromptu poll over 10 yrs that equals 2.4 per yr. I'm sure the number is higher than that as this doesn't reach everyone. Let's multiply it by 10 and put 24 a yr. Pretty low number. How many were instructor jumps? Hard to say. We teach students to be altitude aware, practice it, do our best to remind them on the jump and are told by the USPA to NOT chase a student below 2500'. IF we follow their rules and it still fires on a student, we are threatened with disciplinary action if we don't report it in 48 hrs. Nice.
