  1. I have two N3As and I dread the thought of one or both of them crapping out. It reads the altitude to me through an earbud. It's very convenient. "Ten........Nine.......Eight....." It's nice when working with students to not have to look at my altimeter. I can give more of my attention to the student while staying altitude aware. I really don't need the features of newer fancy altimeters. Just read me the altitude.
  2. Seriously? After all the jumper was dealing with, let's not encourage people to worry about their handles. Saving your life is more important.
  3. I have a Mirage MT (main tray size is 120) and it fits a regular zp 135 WinX comfortably.
  4. BSBD Gary. No matter who you are, if you showed up at our dz and Gary was there you had a friend. He will be sorely missed.
  5. I use one with my JFX 94 and V306. I love it. Is it for everybody? No. But it's a tool I like and will continue to use. I can pack without it, but I have tiny hands and my folds come out nicer with a pack monkey. That gives me more peace of mind.
  6. If it's any consolation, what you're experiencing is very common. At a glance it could seem like gravity does all the work, how hard could it be? Truth is it's overwhelming for many people. Some of us failed an AFF level multiple times and went on to make thousands of jumps. We all start out at "square one". Best advice I could give is to lean on your instructors for tips and help. They are the best equipped to talk you through it all. And the wind tunnel, in my opinion, can help a lot. Best of luck! Welcome to the sport!
  7. I'm just now seeing this thread. How cool! I'd love to play with the code.
  8. If your reserve PC only goes out 3 feet you may want to talk to your rigger and/or bring that up with Sunpath. Especially for a wingsuit rig with a potentially huge burble. I've never personally seen an Aurora but I've owned a newer Javelin and my husband has an older Javelin. Both reserve PCs flew across the room and would gladly break your nose if you were standing too close.
  9. Where can I get more info on these risers? I couldn't find much info on IPT's website. I'd like to avoid another toggle fire like I had over the weekend (likely from the slider pushing the toggle out on opening).
  10. They're all similar enough that you should probably try to demo some before you buy so you can see what suits your style. Contact the manufacturers, I believe they all offer demos.
  11. A jumper at my dz has a Vortex and he's happy with it. Says it is comfortable and it looks well constructed. Another jumper has a Volt and she has put several hundred jumps on it with no issues.
  12. I feel bad for the guy or girl whose new rig now has the label "Tacky Rig - 2018"
  13. Below decision altitude, I wish fewer people flew their canopies like drunk people drive their cars.
