S Fly Verso for beginner?

Recommended Posts

Hello,
A friend of mine wants to buy my S Fly Verso, he is currently jumping with 500 jumps- he has done 4 successful wingsuit jumps with Phantom Edge. Any opinions on if my Verso would be good for him? I fly a large wingsuit, so this small wingsuit is very easy for me, so not sure for beginners. Thanks.

I'm not too familiar with the Verso. The web site rates it closer to a tony suits R-Bird and says its advanced. I would think staying on the phantom for awhile is a good idea with only 4 jumps. Stay in the phantom/swift/sbird range until they can navigate well, proximity fly, and it's always good to start learning to back fly on a smaller suit.

In the end its up to you guys but if you put it into perspective would you put a student with 4 jumps on something like a crossfire? Probably not. So take time and learn the basics because the bigger suits will always be there later.

You can safely proceed with that as a beginners suit. Suit is in the same class sizewise as a Phantom and it is easy to fly. I have used it for people for first flights several times and a few here had it is their first suit. On their website it more reflects the fact that the French rules are non-standard. They have their own classes and rules to go with that. Going into details, its a hands-free suit so there is clean access to the PC / BOC. Comparing it directly to a Phantom, it does require a more clean flying style in order to provide a smooth feeling in air. In a Phantom you can fly a bit more dirty and still feel like superman, where the Verso will communicate to its pilot that it thinks you suck :) So for that reason I just spend some more time on flying position with the student and doing that it turn out very well
