Good canopy construction
Very lazy customer service

I have tried to order a custom canopy with a written logo on it, but the communication with Flight concepts staff is like 100 years ago. It takes a few days until they gave you any sort of answer, and they gave me the impression that they don't quite know their products.
More than that, they cannot work on a COREL drawing at all. After three weeks of trying to get an answer and a final look of the canopy... gues what, NO ANSWER!
I cancelled all and I won't recommend this company further on...

Great customer service,reasonable pricing,quality product
Not a super high performance canopy

I am pleased with the sturdy construction and performance of this FC product. It flys almost as well as a PD Silhouette.....similar performance and nearly as easy to pack. Those qualities make it a solid choice for some looking for a reasonably priced mid-performance-range canopy. Red at Flight Concepts does a pretty good job with customer service....... if you keep after him.

Great all around canopy and good price.
None yet

The Sentry Line seams t obe a great all around canopy design. Nice opennings and great glide and flare power.

Loaded lightly, this is a great transitional canopy for students and youger jumpers.

Loaded heavy this canopy can be used by more experienced jumpers to develope more aggressive canopy piloting skills.

This is a good canopy for many disciplines in skydiving and Instructors who will jump multiple times in a day and need not to worry about spinning or hard opennings.

Smooth on heading openings / Excellent bottom end
None

After trying the demo I knew this canopy was it. Very controled openings the best I've had on this type of planform. Good stability in turbulance and tons of flare, call Red at Flight Concepts for a demo he's the best to deal with.

forgiving, soft openings, easy packing
none

FC Raider 220 was my first gear after jumping accurancy canopy for a while. Bought it used with about 1000(!) jumps and made 50 myself. It it is very forgiving in flight and for packing, opens very very soft (even a litle bit to scary) in about 800-1000 feet, I gues because of wear (F-111 fabric).Openings are on heading, in 50 jumps I have one line twist after I packed it in 4 minutes, but it's not a problem on such size canopy, and one cutaway after my friend packed it in 3 :), he forget to stow one toggle and it get cought in lines.
The landings was good except the ones I tryed to do downwind... The glide ratio is very good, it managed to get me to DZ when my jump partner (with accurancy canopy) left half a mile of it.
I would reccomend this canopy for people just off student status, it served me well, besides you can't beat it's price used, mine cost me 70 usd :)

P.s. Sorry for bad english

Started out flying PD 210s and puchased a Raider 220 just off student status. Easy packing and very docile openings and under canopy. Exit weight is 200#. Great canopy to hang out and catch the view.

After 20 jumps found a Clipper (same design but 195 sq/ft) and did a strait up trade. Main reason for switch was the long rides and that the Raider didn't fit too well in my container. Well, for just going a bit smaller the canopies are very different. The same ease of packing but the openings on the Clipper is VERY brisk. Having played with different packing tricks, I settled on rolling and stuffing the nose AND shoving the tail. This helped tame this sucker but it still wasn't a soft opening.

The canopy ride was much more responsive and the flare was better with a heavier wing loading. I can set this thing down in the stones with no wind or 20mph. I even had the "opportunity" to land it down-wind (brain fart?) and had no problems. Great canopies for the beginner, great pack jobs and with light wing loadings even a few line twists won't freak you out.

Currently flying a Raider220, F-111, and it is a vey good first canopy. Wing loading it at .95, i find it vey docile and forgiving. Soft opening that are on heading. Very stable in turbulant winds, but in high winds not much penatration,becuase it not being wing loaded. Having just under 300 jumps with it. Really good to learn on canopy control, not being worried about costly mistakes. Good for a jumper that is into the longevity of the sport.

I have a FC 9 Cell loaded at .9 to 1. My first canopy, I have about 50 jumps on it. Easy to pack (for such a large canopy), never have to roll the nose for a soft opening. So stable in brakes I have taken pictures with an instamatic without releasing them, just steer with the harness. Very high front riser pressure, almost impossible to stall. Flares well. A good first canopy, now I am ready for a smaller, faster one!
