    Thailand

    Hi I'm going to be in Thailand from Sat 25th Sept for 2 weeks. If any locals fancy hooking up for some jumps or can let me have any info gimmie a shout Thanks Neil
  2. I'm not disagreeing, but I seem to remember that someone who was doing this at Petronas last year had a line over that cleared (was filmed by Anne) so it may not be the "answer" Neil
  3. I unfortunately only made a slack handful of jumps with Duane He really was one of the good guys, he will be greatly missed My deepest sympathy to his wife and family Fly free
  4. I'm not sure what the exact number was but at Petronas last year several hundred jumps were made in that region (3-5 secs) slider up, without any major dramas. I have done and watched plenty of 4-ish second delays slider up with no major dramas (our regular power tower @ 600ft) I guess it all depends on object specifics and how you feel about it... Stay safe Neil
  5. You don't have to spend anywhere near that my friend, For just 110 of your US dollars you can fast track and experience all the fun of BASE jumping here! http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=1174463;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread Remember to get on the sunbed first so you don't look so pasty in hospital
  6. I have a black/olive green FOX (UGT) and a multi coloured FOX, can't say I've noticed any difference, tbh the harder the better
  7. Of course nobody will hear it opening at all....
  8. Received this recently: Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting - "fcuk me what a ride!"
  9. I thought this was fairly well documented. My understanding of this was the 105/TRV33 etc have a magnetic zoom which can be "overpowered" by opening shock, I've seen it plenty of times on footage from these cameras. I bought a trv33 and then sold it un-used for this reason! If you turn the camera off and tilt it back and forward and look into the lens you will see the the internal lens sliding back and forth. The pc9 and the new pc330 doesn't do this hence no blur, I just wondered what kind of zoom the Panasonic had. I only BASE jump now so the opening shock maybe a little more brutal than skydiving openings... Neil
  10. Is anyone using one of these? What's the verdict? It looks nice and compact, with 3ccd quality I was wondering if it does the split second blur thing on opening shock that the PC105/TRV range are prone too? Thx Neil

    Panasonic GS120

    Is anyone using one of these for BASE? What's the verdict? It looks nice and compact, with 3ccd quality (yes I know it's not Sony ) I was wondering if it does the split second blur thing on opening shock that the PC105/TRV range are prone too? Thx Neil

    I've logged it as a tower, as in Ostankino TV Tower. Failing that you could just log it as a "Fcuking Cool Object" Stay safe Neil

    Jules The floating handle worked fine for me, bit odd to start with but you get used to it. It was Space that put me on to it a while back. Now use the mushritto so don't bother with a handle anymore Stay safe

    I used wiffle balls/practice golf balls and they worked fine for the 100 or so jumps I did with them, found the canister a little more awkward to orientate, but that's just me Stay safe Neil
