    Slider Swapping

    You become a testjumper in doing so. Nothing more and nothing less. It might turn out great, it might turn out twisted, slammed, snivelling for ages, you name it. also any manufacturers warranty is void, insurances might not want to pay when it comes out, that you tampered with the gear. Even worse, you might be held financially and legally accountable for any accidents/ damages, that may occur. It‘s been done a million times over and with good results. So I’d do it in a heartbeat. But you have to realise the possible consequences first and weigh your odds Please report back
  2. There are canopies with printed on logos that don‘t effect the packvolume and there are canopies with sewn on logos, that pack a lot larger depending on the size of the logo. My old Katana 120 with a large sewn on logo packed like a Katana 150

    Two dropzones review for AFF

    When you’re from Saudi Arabia, why don‘t you just head over to Skydive Dubai Desert DZ for your licence? Relative to the US right around the corner and everything’s in english as well.
  4. Blue technora groupie here as well. From my girlfriends 107 Sabres to my Velos and Petras, I‘m never going back! Thank you, MEL!

  6. The Spectre hasn't changed at all, 2002 vs 2018 shouldn't make a difference. But beware of correct jump numbers on the older canopy and show it to a rigger if in doubt. very often have I seen advertised 200 jump "closet queens" become 800+, once I had hands on the canopy.

    Urgent help needed/Price okay??

    Disclaimer: all the values except the Cypres result exclusively from good guesses and research in Facebook groups They are worth exactly what you paid for it

    Jealousy incoming How much bigger/smaller does the FT30 pack compared to ZP/sail? ------------------------------------------------------- To absent friends

    Fluid Wings Airwolf

    You don‘t, by any chance, have a comprehensive writeup about your experiences with the HKTs? Especially with any combination of FT30 build into those wings? I‘d really love to hear about them as I‘m looking for an alternative to my Petra. And here in Europe I have a hard time getting demos to try them out as much as I‘d like. Keep on rocking, your posts are always well appreciated :) ------------------------------------------------------- To absent friends

    Comp Velo v Valkyrie

    Harness sensitivity and openings, little better slow flight capabilities but really not that much I haven‘t flown either VCs or Valks loaded that low, though. The biggest difference between them for me is that the Valk handles higher loadings better than the VC and of course the openings. ------------------------------------------------------- To absent friends
  15. A lot of people on here have a military background and static line experience under rounds. Sadly beside the general mindset and determination those skills beside a proper plf aren‘t worth much in a normal skydiving environment. Even civilian static line training is completely different from equipment to exit and canopy/ landing. So coming to a dz with your military static line certificate won‘t get you anywhere near a plane door to jump out of. The T11 is probably the slowest falling semiround you could jump, with a descent rate of 3-5m/s. I highly encourage you to visit Germany and jump one of our T10 rounds. You will think quite differently about your „hard“ landings under the T11 afterwards :) Go get yourself on a military FF program. It‘s worth it! ------------------------------------------------------- To absent friends
