A beast of a wing from what I'm told by Laz and the test pilots! 

I put my order in on Thursday for a WW79.... SN:20 :)


The AW's (84&79) I've been flying for the last couple years have been amazing! I cannot to fly the WW and see what it brings to the table!!!

*** If anyone has any flysight data and inside/outside vids, please post them***

Christ knows if my flysight was still going (I always turn it on, but I flew the WW like 4 days into a boogie). I should definitely have some footage I can dig up.

I drove down to DeLand last week to get some time under the WW84 since it's not really part of the demo program (yet?), and got 14 jumps in. I Absolutely loved it!!! 

Scott took my order as I was packing in between jumps!  SN # 28! Waiting 10-11 weeks is only less painful cause it's so damn cold in MD now! 

I was flying @ 2.86 WL, and it seemed to really shine!  I was floored by the range of the wing.  For a wing that's trimmed steeper for XRW, you can get it pretty flat in brakes and ride back a long spot.  The Full FT30 is awesome, easy stand up landings at 2.86. 

Harness response is PERFECT, I had thought the AW was a bit too de-tuned for my taste, the VK had a lot of harness response, but didn't feel as connected to the wing (almost twitchy), the WW just feels like an extension of myself!  I've never felt so connected to a wing in such a great way!  Roll response was definitely up a couple notches too from the AW, spot on, easy to flick, and easy to slow your roll and stretch out that dive.  

I was able to up my TMA by ~125 feet from AW and keep it in a dive longer, (270's from 825 ft @ DeLand, so basically sea level, YMMV at other altitudes & WL's).  I really loved the longer roll out, so much easier to keep in a dive and adjust it with minor harness inputs than the AW was.

Just a tiny bit of brakes and I was easily flocking with a buddy on a Helix @ 2.4 WL.

 

And lastly, If you plan to use the WW for XRW, a fun tidbit: my Dekunu recorded the canopy flight as wingsuit freefall time!!
