Greetings from Stupino!

Recommended Posts

The 2007 Stupino Wingsuit Boogie is going very well. :)
We have focused on small groups so far to work on skills. The MI8 heli is just for us and we have been making use of the tailgate too B|

Competition starts tomorrow. If you have visited trackingderby.com recently you will know the local flyers here have been practicing _a lot_ and will take some beating!

Very long flight in Tracking Derby!!!

I thnk I have to start flying downwind...



In a lot of wind. 237km/h is the average for the leader.

Will be interesting to see what he does in the glide competition.

Kris.



Yeah holy crap 237 km/h. Very very impressive. Hey James, what were the conditions they were flying in (wind, for example)? And why all of a sudden so many people from Russia on trackingderby? Is it because they didn't know about it, or did they only recently get GPSes to track and upload data with? Very cool at any rate. I'm hella impressed. ;)

Have fun in Russia!

Cheers,

Costyn.

There are quite a few wingsuit pilots now at Stupino and it seems a glide ratio frenzy has taken grip!

Some dedicated training and friendly competition has brought some interesting results, even when you factor in wind.

On route home now and a little sad to leave, was an excellent boogie. Good people, good jumps and a lot of laughing (mainly thanks to Max ;))

Will post some more photos later and there should be enough footage for a short edit.

Thank you to Valery, Natasha, all the jumpers and everyone at Stupino dropzone for the great times.

sunny, warm :) medium winds. 3-7 m/s (on the ground, not sure about the winds at the altitude)

trackingderby and gps flight logging are not that popular in russia. And the trackingderby was used this time to summarize and store the data of the competition. So you can see all the competitors there

yes, altitude to time was judged using tracking derby, and the winner is being determined by best distance/GR with first 15 seconds cut and 90 seconds for the race itself.

altitude to distance was measured as distance in 3600meters to 1600meters corridor, so it's basically just GR :)

for top 10 - all were vampires except my phantom at 10th



Why am i not surprized? ;)

Does this finally settle the best gliding suit debate? :)

bsbd!

Yuri.



Probably not unless you look at the % of suits by make. It would be interesting to see the complete list of positions and the suits used, from all competitors.
