I'm a new skydiver ( around 100 jumps) and I have a Pisa Hornet 170 main canopy and am consistently having fast openings. My wing loading is 1.2 and I've tried adjusting how many rolls I put in the cone hoping to slow down the opening but not having much luck. The canopy and lines we're manufactured in 2001 but has less than 200 total jumps on canopy, and in excellent condition. Any suggestions? Will a larger slider slow down my openings? Any suggestions would be helpful.
Hello I'm a new skydiver about to finish my AFF training and looking to buy my own gear. I have a friend ex skydiver who has a wings container with 170 sq ft main and reserve that wants to sell to me. I'm 6'1 and weigh 190 pounds. Any suggestions as to whether jumping a 170 would be a good safe idea?
