    Pilot canopy

    PM MRBRANT... He used to jump a tri and now jumps a pilot. I am pretty sure he put a few jumps on a sabre2 as well Adrian S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    Step by Step Swoop Set-up?

    I was going to suggest brian's book as well but you beat me to it. Take his course as well if he is offering one anywhere near you. I petitioned my association to get him in. Was worth every penny Adrian S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    4 way RW out of Islander

    I think I heard Tana Nash from Stratosfear Coaching say that at some point their team used to do 4-way from an Islander. I don't know how current this contact info is on this site but here goes http://www.geocities.com/team_stratosfear/contact.html S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    Sabre 1 Vs Sabre 2

    There are some more experienced people out there who thought and still think the ford pinto was a good car.... S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    Footwear with ankle support...

    I play soccer with one of these on http://www.diamondathletic.com/product.php?txtCatID=17&txtProdID=1081. It doesn't impede my running, and isn't so stiff that energy will be transmitted up the leg. Its just a little support to impede an impending sprain. (translated it will help arrest the motion that would cause a sprain.) That isn't to say that you can't sprain your ankle with it on. Just not as likely. Though still a little bulky I find it less so than the oldere aircasts. Adrian S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
  7. thought I would post a follow up... I did what you said and noticed immediately that almost as soon as i Initiated a riser turn that I would get some brake initiation. So for the passed few weeks I have been experimenting with different brake length settings. I have had them at both extremes. On the short end results were as mentioned before and on the long end the lag between where I wanted inputs to initiate and where it did made the canopy seem mushy and difficult to control. The current settings that I have stuck with seem to offer me the best of both worlds. Thanks for all the help. A S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    Max Wingloading for 280 jumps

    Dude! 1.7 is too high for him.. I don't care what wing or what the poll says, or what Brian Germain thinks (even though he will agree with me) or Tim thinks. That is just my opinion based on experience, reading and others experience. Brian Germain will be in town 2 weekends from now! Are you guys gonna come? Hope so. Listen. I don't know if jeff respects my opinion or not but if you guys want to do beers and chat about this. I am game. I mean shit.. i think we only live like a few blocks from each other. PM me and we will hook up. A S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.

    Canopy collision

    What was the leadup to this... I must admit that I clicked on the pic before reading and totally thought it was a photoshop job... Now I am wishing it was... good that you are still with us and whole. S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
  11. Hmm.... I am on RI standard 19.5" risers... How long were your risers when you first started wit your xfire? or did you change canopies and risers at the same time? A S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
  12. I have sent him an email to find out if he had them shortened... waiting now. What length risers were you using when you were flying your xfire? S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
  13. I just thought that I had hit some turbulent air. But your point is valid, and taken. thanks for your suggestions. Adrian S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
  14. Here is the scoop. Me: Adrian Neblett Jumps:560 Canopy Progression: Manta 288, Cruiselite 220, BT 170 (Blue Track), Stiletto 135, Crossfire2 119 I have recently moved to a Crossfire2 119 (used with 50-75 jumps on it) and am trying to sort out all of its intricacies. I have only done 3 jumps on it but I have encountered something that I am not sure how to handle going forward and I I was wondering if anyone else had encountered it. On one of my initial jumps.. I deployed at 6000 feet so that I could experiment with all of the control inputs. In this instance while making a fairly aggressive front riser spiral, the canopy buffeted once. I immediately ceased input and inspected the canopy, it looked fine. I attempted to duplicate the effect again on the same flight but was unable to. I chalked it up to turbulence and went on with life. On a subsequent jump I was attempting to do a 180 onto final and the same thing happened about 3/4 through the turn. I quickly glanced up assessed I had a flying wing over my head. Adjusted my landing lane and landed uneventfully (Though I scared a lot of people back at the loft as it made a big snap sound) 2 of our more experienced instructors (though they have no experience with this canopy) were watching me come in and what they observed was that I had actually gotten to the point in that turn where I managed to pull the tail into the mix. let me know if you need further clarification of that explanation... I think this is more of a concern on this wing cause it seems to be to be a narrower wing chord-wise (hope I have that term right i.e front to back) than anything I have flown before. So here are my questions, I will probably have more.: 1. Is this simply a control limitation on this canopy, much like there is a control range with toggle turns? 2. One thought would be to lengthen the steering lines but with the flare power so deep on the Icarus canopies, wouldn't this possible put the end of the flare out of reach? thanks for your help S.E.X. party #2 ..It is far worse to live with fear, than to die confronting it.
