    Old PISA Tempo--Safe to sell or not?

    I've got a '99 Tempo 150. Flew it twice, opened and flew just fine!

    Warning: Dont order from ALTER

    Curious; how are you finding the accuracy? Since the 2.7 firmware update, the FF time calculation has improved (used to be way off), but I am noticing about 170ft difference between the Alter and my VisoII. Not a big deal during FF, but under canopy 170ft is quite a bit!

    Warning: Dont order from ALTER

    That's unfortunate. I also was one of the lucky ones, then, as I did receive my order and they were always pretty quick to respond to questions, etc.

    Twin Otter Pilot Pay

    I can't answer this question directly, but you might find this resource useful: http://diverdriver.com/ Cheers, Tim

    GoPro Schier clamp

    Agreed, it's pretty easy to install and use; makes for very quick adjustments. Dudeist skydiver...as in 'like, that's just your opinion, man' skydiver?

    Digital altimeter ALTER

    I recently bought one of these, put about 18 jumps on it so far. Really liking the device. It's accurate and easy to read in freefall and under canopy. Customer support is really good as well, they always respond quickly and are open to feedback.

    More than 10.000 tandem jumps

    John, I did ask him, he said he has over 10k tandems. Quite possible I am mistaken, though, it was a text conversation; maybe he thought I said 1000. Cheers, Tim

    I've jumped at Mesquite last time I traveled to Vegas. Great little dropzone, good DZO, fun people. I really like the views as well. It's the desert, but, I find it stunning.

    Pachanga Boogie 2017

    Do you have a link to the boogie info? Or did you hear about this through someone else?
  12. Anyone see any benefit to putting something like Dr Scholl's Active Series insoles in your shoes? Could this help long term knee and ankle wear/impact from running out landings? Granted, I totally agree proper landing technique is paramount.

    Old rigs

    There's a guy at my dropzone who made a windbreaker (jacket) out of an old Tempo reserve!

    Most beautiful dropzones

    There's a couple really nice ones in the interior of British Columbia. Okanagan Skydive in Vernon North Okanagan Vertical Adventures (NOVA) in Salmon Arm

    Birds and Skydivers

    Under canopy, I am pretty sure it's possible. In free fall, though....I don't know of many birds that cruise above 500 feet, unless migrating, but I could be wrong....

    Australia East Coast Fun Jumping

    If you're going to be in that area, check out Ramblers Parachute Centre. It's about 90 minutes inland from Brisbane. Pretty much a sport jumper's paradise. They don't do many tandems there, as I think most people prefer to jump at places like Byron over the beach. Byron is a cool place to jump, though as you mentioned, it's a tandem factory. It's hard to get on a load sometimes, but they do allow sport jumpers there.

    Pilot 188 in Infinity I45 container

    I have an I-45 with a Pilot 168ZPX in it right now. How did you fit a 119 in an I-45? Did you have to add padding to the packing tray to keep it from becoming too loose? A VX is a cross-braced canopy; it packs larger than a non-cross-braced.
  19. I've never jumped a Spectre, but I agree with what others say about the Pilot openings- soft and predictable. Sabre 2 can be interesting at times, to say the least....
  20. I like to ride the slide. I also like rear float/poised exit.
  21. ^ This, for sure. I never had a hard opening on a Sabre2, though there was always an annoyance to clear once opened. Great canopy, though; fun to fly and awesome flare.

    Wrist band for neptune

    I'm pretty sure they are making one that is similar to the Viso wrist mount band. I'm not sure when they are expected to be released.
