  1. Cameraman of Hayabusa usually uses 2 Sony FDR-X3000 (without boxes) mounted side by side on top of Cookie G3
  2. Hi! I'm looking for dual camera mount for 2 Sony X3000 on top of Tonfly 3X or Cookie G3. What i would like to have: 1. Fast removing - like Cookie Flatlock/Tonfly mount etc 2. Some opening on bottom for fast access to card slot without unscrewing cameras. 3. Possibility to change angle/inclination of cameras. 4. Clean setup as much as possible without snag points. I just saw similar setup with 2 Sony X3000 side by side without boxes on top of CookieG3 with Flatlock, but don't have photos unfortunately... Any ideas/photos or links :)?
  3. Odyssey is in the same class with Katana (especially about "negative" recovery arc), but not with Sabre2. Odyssey likes to be loaded and dive a lot in the turn with front risers. Magellan is much closer to Sabre2
  4. During my downsizing i switched from Katana-107 (1.7) to Odyssey-90 (1.9). Made with it 300+ jumps before going in Velo-79 and Scirocco-77. Nice canopy, no complain. It's likes to be loaded, so for wingload 1.4-1.5 i would sugest Magelan from Skylark. It's not ripoff copy of Crossfire2 for sure, for my POV it's good mix of Katana and Crossfire2 :) Waiting for OdysseyEVO 85/90 to test it :)
  5. Wings W1 (smallest one) with PDR-113 inside. 10+ cutaways on this rig with no problems/hesitations :)
  6. Last year i was jumping in Italy. You need to buy 3rd party liability insurance. I bought in DZ cheapest one - 90 euro for 1 year (1.5 mln euro cover). http://www.pegasoparacadutisti.it/polizze.asp http://www2.pianetavolo.it/upload/PARACADUTISMO_2017.pdf Be ready also to make a visit to "sport doctor" tor medical test if DZ request it, other 50-100 euro
  7. I'm using McDavid. Ankle, knee braces and shorts under swoop pants for ass swooping. http://www.mcdavidusa.com/
  8. Thanks! Solving problem with seat belts is first, 6 passengers is second, we will decide after weighting plane, fuel, passengers etc
  9. We are in Jordan near Dead Sea, 1200 fts bellow sea level with intended jump altitude 9000-10000 fts. First of all need solution with seat belts, than think about permission for 6 passengers.
  10. Hello! Same problem with Cessna-206U. Local authorities doesn't give us permission to fly with 6 passengers + pilot, only 6 including pilot. Also need to install "certified seat belts" on plane that worked before in skydiving without seat belts. Any recommendations how to solve this problem in short time with minimal expenses?
  11. I know some packers who can pack 100+ sport rigs in one day, but not on regular basis all month long. So i was interesting to know same info about packing tandems, "regular day" and "super intensive day" a how it's possible to improve it. Regular 30-40 pack jobs, intensive 50-70?
  12. Thanks for suggestion! I know this method, but not everywhere you can found this thick carpet/mat ..
  13. Thanks! So you can make 60-70 pack jobs in the day :)? What container and canopy inside it - Sigma with Icarus? Less time for attaching drogue and setting the brakes?
  14. Thanks for answer! Packing "on hook" i saw once in Belgium. One of the reason they use this method - place is ex-military airfield/hangar, so they need/obligated to pack tandem (Sigmas) and student rigs in "military style"/on hook in separated area with 2 steel cords and hooks. A little easier for inspection and you don't need to keep big canopies on your shoulder. Sport rigs were packed in "common way" on the floor.
  15. Hi! How fast and how many tandem rigs can you pack? 2 rigs in 15 minutes all day long is it possible :)? From your packing experience - how packing time depends on type and configuration of rig/container and canopy inside it? BS!
  16. I still need to have DOM, size and s/n for every single canopy before ordering particular lineset or it's possible to just buy "lineset for Crossfire2-149" like with PD's canopies? Next step for me - some sewing machine for bartacking lines. Now i install lineset myself, but use other service center for bartacking it after me. Any idea for model of this machine, i think used one can be fine.
  17. Hi! I need to reline few Crossfires and Safires (NZ and Spain), so i need to order linesets at right price, but not for 300+ euros... Any suggestion about service center or rigger where i can buy it?
  18. Frank Tasler, 990 turn with CompVelo-79, for FB swoopers :) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=4272631874651&set=vb.1851792169&type=2&theater
  19. Different types of rings perhaps? My rings are normal slider rings, with two tiny loops attached to them. Really light weight compared to some of the specialized rings for other RDS sliders. Same rds-rings with Sc-72/77/ . Allways pulling rings down - don't like them floating around lines, blocking dive loops and brakes and destroying thin lines near s-links.
  20. You also can try to fly Odyssey 110/115/120 from Skylark for swoop, not wingsuit :). Same class 9-cells fully eleptical canopy like Katana/Crossfire. http://www.skylark.ua/en/odyssey/
  21. Yes, some risers have this mode. Know as "swoop mode with upper second guide ring". You can put steering lines throw top ring and stow brakes with lower one. In this case you have some 4 inches slack in steering lines after unstowing brakes. Or can use this risers in normal configuration.
  22. Russians are more interesting to see opening video of Peregrine, but only see Westerns bla-bla-bla here
  23. Still interesting to see some opening video, don't interesting in brand's wars. Trying to convince some crazy friends that they doesn't need try to buy Peregrine for every day swooping
