  1. Apparently Logan Paul (the same guy that made fun of Japanese suicides) had a reserve ride during AFF. Anyone know what happened, why he chopped, etc.?
  2. Hey guys, I'm looking to start flying a unicorn horn AKA death stick while jumping wingsuits (non-BASE) and was wondering what kind of safety risks are involved, how to mitigate them, and what advice you have to avoid entanglements. Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, I'm just wondering what the characteristics and differences are between an Aerodyne Zulu and Crossfire 3. What do you think is better, or worse, and why?

  5. Hey guys, Who has a recommendation for a reverse facing helmet mount (aka unicorn mount, or death stick) for a GoPro 5 Black? I bought one recently from eBay and as soon as I set it up, the damn thing just flopped down and smacked my face shield due to the weight of the camera and won’t stay put. Thanks in advance for any solid recommendations!

  7. Remember when you downsized from a 260 to a 220 and couldn't do all the things that used to be easy: http://www.dropzone.com/...ost=4804520;#4804520? Well the Swift 1 is to the Freak 2 like a 260 is to a 135. The ATC is like a 170 in that analogy. That’s probably the best analogy someone has brought up to this point. Thanks, I’ll keep that in consideration. Another person said: “Because all dzs are different at mine most people are on freaks, c race, or auras I see a lot of people upsize fast to be able to jump with everyone else “ And that’s exactly what’s going on around the DZ’s I jump at. Everyone’s on a Freak or comparable suit. So, yes. I want to upsize quickly to fly with my friends and the “big kids” on their turf instead of them de-powering their suits and flying slow so I can keep up with them.
  8. Hey guys, I’ve been flying a Swift 1 for a while now, and I feel really confident and in control of the suit. Getting unstable and recovery isn’t a problem, I can fly an entire jump on my back, barrel roll back to back, front to front on heading, and dock/keep level and pace with other guys in flocking dives. I want to get into a Freak 2 ASAP, but, don’t have the recommended 175 jumps for it. I’m still sub 100 wing suit flights total. What are your thoughts on upsizing in wing suits VERY quickly vs going at the factory recommended pace? Inb4 YOU’LL FLAT SPIN AND KILL YOURSELF! Thanks in advance :)
  9. Yo dude! Not sure how your packing went, but, if you haven’t heard about the reverse ’S’ fold technique, inquire about it. Once I learned that, it made getting my canopy into the bag 1,000,000x easier than the standard ’S’ fold. Which I find to be the hardest part of packing. Besides that make sure your lines are always tight and even, quarter your slider (huuuuuuge important thing to do) keep your line stows on the bag on the smaller side (somewhere between 1 - 2”), and when putting the bag into the container, make sure your line stows aren’t near or touching the extra 18” or so of line slack. I was having out of the container line twist pretty consistently for a while (no, not a body position problem) and it turned out my stows were a little big, and clipping the 18” of free lines upon deployment which would spin the bag off my back and cause line twist. Here’s an example I filmed of exactly that happening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-wgdYPs1OQ But, besides that…cock your pilot chute, close your flaps and route the bridal in accordance with the factory recommendations, and have fun!
  10. Reverse ’S’ folds saved me from crying many manly tears. It’s the only way I can get my canopy (or any canopy for that matter) into a bag.
  11. That is straight sexy. Looks like my Movoto. Too bad it's not digital. Sad face.
  12. Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase a digital altimeter, and I want the best of the best. Suggestions? Thanks!
  13. Oh, that's awesome. Well! I'm glad I bought a Voodoo Curv 2.0 then :) Thanks for all the input everyone!
  14. Hey guys and gals, I’ve got a Curv that was built for a Pilot 168 main with an optima 160 reserve that I want to eventually downsize and use a Crossfire 3 135 main with. So, what are some potential or common problems associated with using a smaller main in a container that was built for a larger one? Any first hand experience is appreciated.
  15. It's a bonehead Aero. Sorry guys, I should have specified that.
