What is "popping"?

Recommended Posts

Talking with so much passion about vertical decent in way ''who is going slower'' is entirely wrong. Data such vertical speed does not have any skill value. If one jumper has very low speed on vertical decent, this saying more about his/her proportion , rather than skill.

I think what these guys are saying is that they have kick ass speeds, but that there doing it with slow desent rates, hence high glida ratio's,

one could just de-arch to get a slow fall rate

I am not saying we should rename flocking to stall flying, nor I am saying that flocking is subordinate to any other discipline or type of flying. If you think that you are WAY off track.

I dont see how it can be called "stalling",
when an airplane "stalls' it drops its nose to pick up speed, In a Wingsuit I can go from max track to flat to head up without this affect

'Cos that's what they are designed to do. The nose dropping is a symptom of the stall, it is not what defines the stall. Our weight distribution is a little different to most airoplanes.
Do you want to have an ideagasm?
