    Wind Tunnel Listings Added to Dropzone.com

    Kris - I agree, the claim in this article that this us the most comprehensive list is not accurate. Thanks also for being willing to share. We deliberately didn't just scrape your data first because that's not how we roll, but also because we wanted to visit the site of each tunnel ourselves, check that it still exists, validate the data and also collect some additional datapoints. Feel free to update from here if you find anything if use.
  2. On it's way! We've had this on the back-burner for a while but it should be available in the next week or so.

  10. [inline helmeta.jpg] I have absolutely no idea why that's not working. Tried to edit your post but with no luck. Above id your image, saved to my desktop and then posted here. I'm adding this text as an edit afterwards. Your short code seems to be in order. Why not try posting it again? (though I think most people will just open the attachment.)

    Safire

    The Icarus Safire is an all Zero-Porosity, 9-Cell, Lightly Elliptical canopy featuring Vectran™ suspension line. It has been designed as an all round, no hassle performance canopy. The Safire gives you a solid 9-cell performance and a modern elliptical flavor, without getting radical and without requiring any special attention. It is delightfully easy to fly, with consistent openings, easy packing and excellent landing qualities.
