  1. I ordered mine through my local dealer because it costs me the same either way, but if I order through him then he gets a cut. His full time job is skydiving/rigging/selling gear, so I thought it would be nice to help him make his living. I didn't have any issues with delivery time.

    I'm planning to be there! I'll be flying my a$$ off in my old S3 to keep up to everyone!

    Tony, and Robi; I can't wait to see the new suits (and maybe fly a couple). I want to spend some money and order a new suit during F&D this year!

    Edit to add:
    I hope to be there early too. Maybe on the 9th or 10th depending on the vacation time I can get from work.

    :o I bought my S3 when the first V1 was just being released. I've flown the S3 on many jumps since then and have been thinking of an upgrade for a while.

    Now I know what suit I'll be buying next summer!!

  5. Hey everyone!
    I am moving to Edmonton, Alberta next week and am wondering where I should be doing my skydiving? I'm not trying to stir any pots or anything....I just want an honest opinion. I also think that skydiving is a great way to meet people, since I don't know anyone in Edmonton!

    I've heard of 2 large dropzones near Edmonton. Eden North, and Skydive Edmonton.

    I have about 450 jumps, and they are mostly freeflying or wingsuit. I'm not much of an RW or CRW kind of guy. I'd like to skydive somewhere that has people I can jump with a lot. Does one of the dropzones have more wingsuiters or freeflyers? I am coming from Ontario....and as an example, if I want to do a lot of wingsuiting, I'd go to Burnaby. That just happens to be where the wingsuits are. Is it lke that in Edmonton?

    Any suggestions? Which dropzone would you recommend?

  6. I got a bonehead mudflap mount and modified it to hold a Neptune. You have to cut the mount down to size, sand the sharp edges, drill hole in the right places, and get longer screws for the Neptune. It works like a charm though! Plus its not as bulky as mounting an Alti Galaxy on there.

  7. I have over 300 jumps on a sil 150 loaded at 1.1 and I think it performs just like a Sabre 1 of the same size. The only difference is the Sil never opens hard and is really really easy to pack.

    The difference between a Silhouette and a traditional F111 canopy is the sil won't lose performace with age nearly as much as an F111 canopy will.

    Oh, and loosen your cheststrap and collapse and pull down your slider after deployment. This will help the flare a lot. Just be careful when you pull your slider down because you don't want to accidentally release a toggle. Also, this should only be done if you have mini risers and soft links.

  8. We've done really tight 4 way WS exits from our 182. You can fit 3 on the step in a poised position and the 4th one sits in the door. The 3 on the step all leave at the same time and the 4th one follows asap. The 4th WS pilot jumps out and rotates mid exit so they are facing the front of the plane along with the other 3 WS pilots. The 4th slot is the most challenging but we have had exits were all 4 WS are in slot perfect formation within 4 or 5 seconds of exit. Actually, I find this easier than an Otter exit with as many wingsuits.:)

  9. Darren!

    I think that is a great idea. I am going to try my hardest to come to this event (problem is that its the week before my exams start). Greig will try to come as well. Greig and I deeply miss our wingsuit buddy Mark.

    Here is a pic of Mark, Greig and Myself all learning wingsuits from Darren last chrismas in Zhills

  10. Sounds like you are running a pretty old firmware version. I know this because you say that your buttons are hard to press and that the response time to the buttons is slow. This problem was fixed long ago with one of the firmware updates. The buttons are now more sensitive and the load and access times are 100x faster than before. My Neptune has never caused me any problems in the year that i've had it and over 100 jumps i've put on it. Its also always bang on when compared to my protrack. I have worn it on my hand, in my helmet and on my mudflap.

    Get an update and replace your battery....it should help alot!

    It would be so nice if some of you could make the trip to Strathroy tomorrow evening. Tuesday 7-9pm is when most of his fellow skydivers are planning on attending.

    Its so nice to read everyones posts here. He was the type of guy that you could meet for only 5 minutes and still remember for the rest of your life.

    Some of you have also been wondering his last name.....Healy. Mark Healy. We used to refer to him as Markus Healy MD because of his incredible ability to 'pick up' lol. We loved watching the doctor at work.

    Wow....This still hasn't sunk in with me.:(

  • Mark was a very cool guy. I made many a jumps with him. He was 1/3 of our unofficial canadian wingsuit team. Greig and I made an absolutely beautiful and perfect sunset wingsuit jump on saturday in Marks honour.

    I can't believe he is gone, nothing will be quite the same without him. He was truly an amazing person and had a great life going for him.

    Deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and loved ones.

    Here couple pics of mark that are only a week old.

    Blue skies forever bro.
