Rage Canopy

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

I just got a Rage 130 from Flight Concepts as a Demo.

This is a truly awesome Canopy!

I normally Jump a Sabre 135 or Stiletto 135. I would compare the rage to a Stiletto with a bit more horsepower. It may be like a Katana but I haven't jumped one to know. I have made several jumps on it and love its opennings and flight.

Just thought any one looking, to down size into a high performance canopy or change high perfomance canopies, would want to know about this awesome ride!

Call Red at Flight Concepts,he has a few Stock models and Demo's around to test and sell.
An Instructors first concern is student safety.
So, start being safe, first!!!

I did two jumps on a Rage 185 a while back (loaded about 1.2:1) and I put it down and backed slowly away. It was just too much for me at 220 or so jumps, and would continue to be too much for me for a long time. :)
Opened a hell of a lot smoother than the Sabre-1 190 I was also jumping that weekend!

And it wanted to glide forever. :o

At 220 jumps even if your a conservative and mature pilot it is a high perfoamnce canopy.

I am looking to scrape together the cash to keep the demo. I like it!:)

So what are your thoughts on a person that has 30 jumps... is this person ready for a Rage 170 as his first rig??

You’re kidding, right?:S

Sparky
My idea of a fair fight is clubbing baby seals
