Vampire 2 vs Blade?

Recommended Posts

and with all that in mind
with all things being equal, which suit will fly further and faster?



Maybe what we need is a good analogy... hmm.. kinda like:

All things being equal between Nike, Puma, Adiddas, and Clown Shoes (a la YuriA), which shoe will run the fastest? The Nike right? :P All you can do is try to observe a trend across a population of users familiar with all the shoes.

Yes but also, you can test each suit in a wind tunnel for example. Or compare their surface are to glide ratio, or compare their materials in conjunction with drag or aero dynamic properties. You can do a pletora of things that would tell you which suit performs better and under which conditions. The analogy you were looking for is formula one vs it's american conterpart (indy or something).

But anyways I get the point. As it stand there is no answer. I just wanted to know but I guess ill just have to contine using the internet for it's primarily function ie hard core porn;).

May this thread continue with twenty more people ranting with and about. My lack of experience. The funny remarks, that just seemed so witty when you thought of them. The slightly derogatory comments. The arguing between different people. And so on and so fourth.

To all those people who tried to help. I would like to say thank you.

ps I am ordering a WS today, ill just refrain from naming it's model and maker, after all we dont want to start any ranting about Dead Men Walking and so fourth. It would just be all too pedantic.

And thats why I hate posting.

Yes I know its drift but this will actually be of more use to the originator. The core from lodi has some representing to do if I'm not mistaken. I trust them to keep grab assing in the base down to a minimum the next time around.:D:D:D That was fun!

BTW Here is some more drift for you, we will have a nice video done up lickity split this time.:o

Yes, maybe we can get the P-salmon to join us. :)
And yes, a few of the Lodi crew have to make up for some grab assing....... I reminded them of that last weekend. :D:D

Who's gonna pay for that? Do you know how expensive wind tunnel time is? Yes, some suits have been tested in a wind tunnel, but the Blade and the Vampire have not been tested in the same conditions in the same windtunnel

There are just way too many variables involved to come up with a reasonable objective answer. A wingsuit is not a fixed wing glider. Even if you started to measure say wing area. Where do you start measuring? At the seam where the leg wing attaches to the bootie? Or do you include the bootie?
