  1. Any contacts or comments jumping there would be greatly appreciated! Eric
  2. Has anyone packed safire 2 189 has few hundred jumps into vector 349? Was it tight or ridiculous tight. Any info would be helpful. The vector 349 is brand new and smart 176 low pack volume is the reserve.
  3. Can any riggers comment on how small the LPV packs compared to a nano or optimum in particular? I know its newer so not as many riggers has had their hands on it. While packing did you find anything unique about it, either how it packed, needing to change typical technique vs packing regular smart reserves. Any info on the lpv would be appreciated. Having hard time gathering info other than whats on aerodyne website as dont know many riggers who have actually done install and repacks with the reserve. Thanks!

  5. I am thinking of powder coating my reserve d handle. It is a slim profile d reserve handle from UPT for my vector. I feel powder coating would def make it last as well possibly even giving it a little extra grip. Any thoughts or opinions, especially from those who may have done it. Cheers!
  6. Yeah I noticed that too which makes me lean towards LPV over Nanos...
  7. What is SI 190? How did it fit with the 170 spectre? Was it still a break? With 140 zpx was it very soft? What do you mean under a VK for long? Thanks for the info!Quote
  8. I am getting pilot a 168 zpx and looking to either get a v347 or v348. I know zpx traditional packs at least 1 size smaller and vector 347 are made for most 150 mains. I also know that UPT considers most pilots to pack one size bigger compared to canopies of similar size. That being said they suggest pilot 140 as upper limit of that container size. UPT container size chart doesn't mention zpx material.Even UPT has very limited experience to with zpx material and that canopy in particular with that container size when I contacted them. I have had pilot 188 zpx and it def packed down to 170. Anyone have any actual experience fitting pilot 168 zpx or pilot 150 in a V347? If so was it super tight, was it comfortable? Also does anyone have experience packing pilot 150 in v347 To go further reserve that I will be putting in there will either be smart lpv 175 or Nano 176 reserve. Bonus points if have experience with LPV smart reserves.
  9. What small adjustments need to be made to make the camera sleeve work? also any advice how to mount to bonehead revolve 2? Thanks!
  10. If I pay you or just give you the all the thanks in the world would you be able to make one for my sony asv 100 for my bonehead revolve 2 side mount. I am not very handy and don't want mess it up a million times. Thanks!
  11. I have Bonehead Revolve 2 which I love. I have a Sony ASV100 and thinking about getting a go pro 4. I tried to search but with not much luck on the best way to mount both the cameras and making it as snag free as possible. If possible I would like to side mount, because I usually open the face shield while under canopy. If anyone has any ideas and even pictures of what they have done would be awesome. Cheers!
