  1. Hey everyone. Now I'm aware that the Mars M2 can only be used on certain systems in the US, now I have been scouring the APF site to try and find some info, but is there a similar restriction in Australia?
  2. Disregard my last, after more conversing I discovered that it was the blokes personal rig and that he was just using the company to advertise it.
  3. Evening all. So I have finally found a first rig that I like and want to buy, no dramas there. However the group that I am buying it off is a company called SKY SHOP Eu based in Lithuania. Now the rig that I've found is second hand and was advertised on facebook so I've spoken to them via inbox and it is now just pending payment, so I guess my question to you all is have you had any dealings with this mob and are they trustworthy? There facebook page is and their official site is They have asked me to pay via international bank transfer which I am not overly keen on (not sure whether its going to old mates details behind the screen or the company) and unfortunately I can not find any classifieds on their official site so I guess I am open to suggestions in that regard to. Thanks for reading and the feedback :)
  4. Haha and that's exactly why I asked so looks like I need to find a much bigger rig, cheers.
  5. Hi guys, just got my A class last weekend (woohoo) and starting my B-rels, so I have been looking into gear for a while now (got everything else just missing the rig). The problem is I don't know what size canopy to get. I have been looking around for a while now and I have stumbled across a second hand rig which I like that's just missing the main. The problem is it can only fit up to a 150. So I have tracked down a sabre 2 150 that will fit but I'm not sure whether the size will be too small for me to handle. My total jump weight is approximately 80kg (176lb) which will put my my wing loading at 1.17. So far I have only jumped on a silhouette 220 as a hire rig so obviously it will be a big change but I was just wondering what your opinions on this are, whether I get this rig or go for something bigger? Cheers :)
  6. Hi, I've just recently gotten into the sport and I am just wondering if anybody would have any landing accuracy tips. I think that I have decent canopy control but can't quite make land dead on my target. I average 10-20 meters from the target and the closest was 5m. I am aware of the quiet spot when coming in for landing but a lot of the time I undershoot the target in full flight. Which brings me to the next question, is full flight the best glide ratio? I have been using an odyssey 239 student rig. Is this more of a test and adjust as to starting my downwind leg or is there something else I can do? Thanks for the help :).
