    really? i have one of the first models and it's still working fine.
  5. i forgot my rigger had done this as I hadnt asked him to. (i think it's a general advisory now). he did tell me he had but i forgot and returned it to him because it was flashing "E". *facepalm* on the subject of WL - BS in the uk have implemented a new minimum canopy size chart by jump numbers a la francaise.
  6. a mate had a snappy opening on a pilot 150 yesterday, he's had the canopy from new, put a few hundred jumps on it. it was hard enough to snap one of the elastic zip retainers on his wingsuit.
  7. have you tried relaxing, arms swept back a little, a little tension on the suit but not stretching the shit out of it?
  8. I use a standard Mirage bridle and PC that have well over 1000 jumps for both WS and Other, no issues so far.
  9. interesting article, pack outdoors, on your own dedicated mat, appropriately spaced. only 15mins exposure in the well ventilated plane, spray disinfected between loads, jumpers too. when's kit on call? disclaimer: may contain confirmation bias
  10. +1 for skydiver seconds - "onetwofrefofisisevaightniTEN GOOOOOO!"
  11. this is worth saying twice https://uspa.org/SIM/5#2 30 days is tough, this time of year where i am you can easily go that with the weather.
