    Javelin Odyssey complete

    Time Left: 6 days and 23 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I am selling a complete system. Javelin TJNK, DOM 06/04, serial number 26323, (well used), along with a PD Stiletto 120, DOM 03/04, serial number 01387. PD 126 reserve, DOM 03/04, serial number 31120, reserve was last repacked, 04/05/2019 and is within date. Cypres2, model CMODE, DOM 5/17, serial number E2382. Included is an Alti II Galaxy altimeter. I am 5’ 10”, weight 175. The container is well used and has a left hand deployment. In October 2011 the complete harness system was rebuilt and is like new. The line set on the Stiletto has approximately 200 jumps on it and the canopy itself has approximately 900 jumps. I am selling this as a complete system and at this point have no desire to piece it out. Buyer will pay shipping and insurance which will be determined at time of sale. I will not play the PayPal game and will only ship when I have the funds or am satisfied that payment is secure. I also will NOT ship overseas, US shipping only. I have more pics. Text or email only, no phone calls until serious.

    DB Cooper

    I looked at your site coopercase.com and I am now seeing what others have said, that all you are doing is setting up Sheridan Peterson as DB Cooper, and it looks as if the reason is that you are writing a book. If this is the case, you have stated that you investigated this case for 10 years. If you do publish, people may want to see proof of your research, especially given that there have been others who discussed Peterson before you. Do you have proof of any research from ten years ago. I can find nothing online that shows you in any articles, any chat rooms, Facebook, anywhere. Am I wrong? Saying you've been investigation for 10 years could come across as an exaggeration and raise some questions about your credibility.

    Hi Skybytch the cutaway ripcord for this harness is not the same as the ones you find on civi jump rigs , this ripcord is combined , it has the cut away for the three rings but it allso has the steal ripcord that opens the reserve pack as well , when pulled it does the two actions all in one pull , cuts away the main and opens the reserve container , i can get the risers but i would like to keep as it was made , this rig was use and still is in use by the defence department

    MT 1-X

    I have 53 jumps with MT-1X system in the early 1990s. Our systems were manufactured by Para Flite Inc. Both the harness, main and reserve canopies have the stealth grey color. Trust me, it is really hard to spot it in the air at dawn. I also had to open reserve chute and it’s reserve is a 5 cell RAM air wing chute. It is definitely not the same canopy as the main chute. The reserve is relatively smaller. However the reserve had much larger cells than the main canopy. Unlike its main canopy’s deployment bag (it had a white colored heavy duty cordura deployment bag) which is permanently attached to the canopy, the 5 cell reserve canopy separates from the olive drab colored (and it is made from the same parachute fabric) deployment bag during opening. The harness is an odd one. It has similar 3 point fasteners as well as a belt that you should utilize. The front side of the harness has 4x D shaped equipment attachment points made of steel. The very bottom of the harness had another 1x steel equipment attachment point which you can utilize to suspend your weapons/equipment sack during flight. This was the most painful part of the system and often times a huge nuisance when you wanted to sit. It was simply at the very very wrong spot, but oh well. You could see all MT-1X pilots have to fix that attachment point to a safe position before they could sit in the aircraft... Main canopy is a slow opening one if compared to the civilian chutes of early 90s. Sometimes it felt like it takes 5-6 seconds if you are slow. The slider always comes all the way down to your head flawlessly, so mostly it did not have much drama during opening. The main canopy is not very agile. You would give a command and the turn starts slowly, then the turn gets faster but cannot turn as fast as 90s civilian chutes like the 252 sqft North American Parafoil wing. It is quite hard to get the main canopy to a stall. Quite easy flying and quite safe but a boring chute for sure. However the glide ratio is not bad at all. I can somewhat recall it as 4/1 glide slope ratio. On 1/4 brakes the gliding is quite impressive. The final approach required relatively large landing area selection due to the relatively high glide ratio of the canopy. If it hits a thermal during final, it gets effected by it due to its sheer size. Prepare for a much longer glide before a touch down to be on the safe side. It can’t easily point land. Once you land, you can see it’s sheer size, it is a very large chute. But it is a very cool chute for sure. Quite different by civilian standards.

    DB Cooper

    EU: You think Cooper FLEW into the Portland Airport? Do you realize HOW many potential witnesses that entails? Let me list a few: Stewardesses on the flight, who notice everything and everybody. The ticket agent who sold him the ticket to GO to Portland. Other passengers. Not a single person in more than 45 years has EVER come forward to even venture a 'maybe I saw the guy in the sketch on this flight...or at THIS OTHER airport...or boarding...or waiting at the gate. I can tell you aren't from the Great Northwest. The TV news has posted his sketch and done Cooper stories with that sketch ever since...for more than 45 years. Cooper almost certainly went to the Portland Airport in the most common method. Someone just dropped him off out front. That's why he went 'unnoticed'. Your attempt to say Cooper flew in from somewhere else is done simply because you have a document out there alleging Sheridan Petersen as the hijacker, and you had to explain how he got from Nepal to Portland. If Cooper had actually been foolish enough to fly in from somewhere else, he probably would have been identified by now. In addition...he had no luggage except a briefcase with a (probably) phony bomb, and a lousy paper bag.

    Flysight vs GoPro

    I'm realizing as I read you that I'm relying on my GPX data without questioning its origin. Here's how I proceeded: Extracted raw data from mp4 into a raw file, using ffmpeg : ffmpeg -y -i "/path/to/theFile.MP4" -codec copy -map 0:3 -f rawvideo outputFile.bin Used the "gopro2gpx" util from this repo to parse raw data into gpx : https://github.com/JuanIrache/gopro-utils Here's where I was wrong - step 1 preserves all data. Step 2, not so much. I overlooked the fact that it might leave data behind while parsing the binary extract into gpx. So I'm currently trying out this other util (slower, in JS) : https://github.com/JuanIrache/gopro-telemetry And... I seem to get a 3D velocity! I get a more thorough output in JSON, I still have to convert it to gpx though. Files attached, work in progress! Also included, GPS data in CSV. Fun stuff!! chablais.json chablais.raw flares.json flares.raw GH010928-gps chablais.csv GH018648-gps flares.csv
  13. Tried to find a camera helmet thread, but didn't see it. Anyway, I haven't posted here for many years, but I had to put together a new camera helmet for use on the 75th anniversary of D-day jumps in Normandy in a couple of weeks. You have no idea how hard it is to find a real, WWII-era GoPro.

    VOG audible altimeter

    I tried the VOG audible and couldn't hear any of the free fall alarms even with the volume all the way up on tracking/ angle jumps. Kiss helmets hold the audible further away from the ear compared to other helmets with an audible pocket. The guy from VOG explained that this was why I couldn't hear the alarms. Although my hearing isn't great, I can hear my Quattro and Atlas audibles fine with my setup.

    Flysight vs GoPro

    It sounds like you might be looking at the <sat> field in the GPX file, which actually gives the fix time--i.e., 2D or 3D--so it typically has a value of 2 or 3. The minimum number of satellites required for a GNSS fix is 4, so if you're seeing a value of 3, it's definitely not the number of satellites used in the fix. Can you post an example of the GPX data produced by the GoPro? It looks like the <sat> field in the GPX file would give the number of satellites used in the fix.

    Have you tried looking at a skydiving gear store? Risers and cutaway handle should be easy to find. The s/l may be a bit more difficult - ParaGear might have something that will work.

    Correct. He and another jumper had originally planned to jump from much higher than the main load, and jumped 10-20 minutes after the main load.

    nil winds

    center leader, the guy in charge of the DZ that day (he communicates with the pilot, decides on jump limits, counts jumpers after they open, ... ). And basicly, yes. DZ only operates on weekends, and there's always someone in charge of the arrow. He's not "holding" it , as it's a flat piece of vinyl 6+ft long and pretty damn heavy. It is put in the center of the landing zone (which is split into 2 sections, so both left & righthanded circuits are possible without collision risk) pointing in the landing direction based on prevalent winds. They generally stick to one of 4 directions (~NESW) so a bit of crosswind is pretty usual at our DZ. If the winds change, the arrow can be moved into the new direction as required. In nil winds or very low and changing winds, it is often left in one landing direction all day to avoid confusion. It used to be by the side of the DZ, with a bullseye in the middle marking the center of the landing zone, but earlier this season they removed the bullseye and put the arrow in the center. You can see the arrow on google maps even :-) https://goo.gl/maps/Q1V4BCMEZurjh4UK9
