    Argus 'Pin Check'

    Apart from the regulatory stuff it is quiet simple. You could even do it yourself if you have the equipment and materials and so long as you put shielding on. (Disclaimer:-DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME PLEASE!) I think the objective is to wipe the new kids off the block so I doubt that other brands will help out. Watch this space MarS M2 will be facing all of this in the future too. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    Argus 'Pin Check'

    The general consensus is just the Argus cutter is the problem. There is a quick fix and if Aviacom's oposition were true gentlemen they would facilitate in the best interests of safety. Many people will for the near future will be jumping without AAD's till there is a fix or they replace with another brand. Fit the Argus connector to one of the opposition's cutters. But this will never happen. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    GoPro HD Handycam glove

    I put this glove together and use it mainly for stills as we use 3rd eye camera for tandem on most tandems. I also put together a foot mount, which also works well --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    CX100/105 successor?

    I think this is it in plain English. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665891057#overview --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    Tandem Flybys:

    From a tandem master and a wingsuit pilot. Plan your dive dive your plan, no surprises, mutual consent from both parties. and dont come near me on a tandem with less than 100 wingsuit jumps and I know your skill level! --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    Tandems hooking up before take-off?

    When operating from aircraft without a door, I attach at least one lower if the passenger is near (C182/C206U) the open door on the ground. Other considerations is the space in the aircraft if you have larger passengers and using handcam if you connect on the ground or start connecting earlier. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    DON'T DO IT You stand a good chance of killing the pilot if he snaps his rotor mast from an asymetrical tandem exit --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    On the way to rodeo a wingsuit

    Hey Jester Thanks for getting Ria AKA Freefly Indian into the sky with wings, he is hooked. I hope his inclination to spin was not a problem. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    Flat pack- improvised

    I am looking for my old Paraflight manuals for Cruiselite and swift reserves. Remember the saying from the patch on the right riser..."Paraflight makes it right" when hooking a canopy up. Call it a trip down memory lane? Even had Stratostar manuals!!! I lent them out to a candidate rigger years back, not sure If I got them back. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly

    Flat pack- improvised

    If I get a chace I will dig around for my old ( circa 1988) notes for packing courses. On older F111 canopies and even earlier PD type canopies a flat pack was great. There were a number of types. The first is what was called the conventional pack which was the flat packed reserve pack adjusted to open slower. Nose up and between B on A, C on B, D on C, breaks stowed, slider up as Scott said, Lines cleared and tail flaked and center cell dressed around. Then the roll pack which is pretty much what the OP described. Then there were a number of variation of the two. --------------------------------------------- If you don't have wings you will never fly
