    I wanted to mention the differences between taking the time to submit your 'suspect video' to me, rather than to Eric. If you submit yours to me, I guarantee if you have a Cooper book out there, your sales will take a jump. If you submit yours to me, I will guarantee that many more people will actually see the video. If you submit your video to me, I guarantee that the production quality will be slicker, and much better. If you submit your video to me, you will retain all the rights, I won't edit the thing, and you will be allowed to embed it anywhere you wish. To: Robert at adventurebooksofseattle AT Gmail dot com.
  6. It's pretty well known that F111 PCs are more stable than ZP ones. Several manufactures have made the claim. Skydiving PCs in general are trash. If you look at BASE PCs, skydiving ones dont even compare. Skydiving PCs are made as cheaply as possible. BASE PCs are made from ZP, but they have an apex vent that makes them much more stable than any form of non-vented skydiving PC. The only skydiving PC I've seen that's halfway solid is the Squirrel SkySnatch, which is basically a small BASE PC with a killline.

    What happened here? Turbulence? Stall?

    Now I could be entirely wrong, and I only watched the collapse, not the rest of the vid. Looks familiar, this little incident that was a good advertisement for a Skyhook. That came up a while back on DZ. I know it as the Dubai swoop comp collapse, Dec 2011. Think it was blamed on turbulence, causing the frontal stall or frontal collapse (negative angle of attack). Possibly in some way combined with it being on an early non-production version of a Petra, a prototype if you will. But I don't know the details. Search for "JPX Petra - stability issues?" thread.

    Safire2 169

    Time Left: 29 days and 10 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have a tangerine colored Safire2 169 used back in 2010. I put about 100 or so jumps on it before downsizing. It's been stored in a plastic bag out of the sunlight ever since. Never had a bad opening and had a lot of fun flying it. Lineset is in pretty good condition. Good canopy for someone just getting started in the sport. Only thing I don't like about it is the color. I bought it from Para Concepts for $1,600 and asking for $1,000 or best offer. Cheers! -Adam

  16. Hello Meso, You R the man - signed in with Internet Explorer and all seems to be well as per the ability to reply here. A pc savvy friend of mine had me update Firefox in order to download adblock on to it. Maybe the problem is with the latest version of Firefox or having adblock blocking popups. Any ideas on that? Can't believe I figured out to do a word document to work around the problem to communicate with you. Don't want to do it again or all the time though. Thanks again for the tip. Frank

    Ordered some last minute items for the Cooper Campout, and I see they are arriving from Amazon today. Two USB extension lines for the USB-powered light bulbs. These are unique in that you can hang them up and they are made of plastic, not glass, and are LED-lit. On off switch in the line itself and pretty bright, drawing only five watts. Three POUND box of those short little Slim Jim Snack Sticks. LOL community snacks I guess. There are 120 of them in the box. Okay, 119 now because I had to check if they were fresh. They were. Good until October the box says. The old post-apocalyptic movie, Panic in Year Zero with Ray Milland. I love that one. Also starting to do gear check a bit at a time. On my proposal to assemble a single, and rather fast-moving 'Major Suspect Video,' no worries on that. You have time to submit yours. I won't be doing anything on assembling that until after July 1. Also depends on how quickly people decide to send in their bit. longer than three minutes allowed, and you MUST mention your name, as well as your suspect's name, at the START of the video. That is required or I send it back to you for correction. If you have a book or a website, don't forget to squeeze that in somewhere, but that is optional.

  20. That's exactly what people do. They replace them with appropriately sized ZP ones. I have never seen anyone replace a worn out F-111 pc with another one one of the same flawed item. There are many myths around skydiving. ZP P/Cs causing line twists is a new one on me. Must be a secret Sunpath and Mirage are not sharing with everyone else.

    Tipping your AFF instructors

    I feel the same. To me, tips are for TI's, or the AFF student who really just wanted a single jump not hooked to someone. If you are actually learning to skydive, your AFF is really an instructor / teacher and not tipped. I wouldn't tip a college professor. But if you appreciate their efforts, let them know, get them water on a hot day, get their favorite beer when you buy beer, etc.
