PROTOTYPE 02 Adjustable Wings

Recommended Posts

This was our second prototype in 2002.
It was made with exchangeable wings.

The first jumps with the large leg wing makes the flight to much head down.
We cut the gap in the leg wing and that´s it.

The wings works in two stages.
The center of the body weight is supported by the wings and save lots of muscle power from the arms.
They just end behind the elbows, so the angle of power is differentiate from Win Tsung.

The surface was already larger than the most other suits.

The first wings were even larger and it was neccesary to fly on the back for a moment, to reach it.
The adrenalin of this action stoped me from further jumps. So we fitted a student rip cord to the rig.

I never had the intention to make money with it. I like to see the new wingsuit generations comes more similar to the shape of my creation.
OK, my one looks ugly but the aerodynamics in relation to the human bodyshape/ -weight are exemplary.

(Sorry, but in my language the most of you will understand nothing)

You´re so right!

That´s why the stage 2 wingtype is quite narrow but down to the ankles. So they become a kind of leg wing also (larg leg wing on both sides of the legs). The arms not become as tired as holding the wings with the forearms.
The surface is changeable with the arm position while you flying.

I´m sure you´ve got the experience of creating something new and beeing excited about the result while you´re flying.;)

It works not always to copy the nature, but in this way the shape of a "swallow" bird creates a good performance. Will you "swallow" that? :)
Of course, James won the SkyJester Comp. -
so I better keep quiet until the next one... :S :D
