    Has anyone jumped the Fluid Wings Nexus?

    Any more info on the NExus? I really want one instead of going the Sabre route but as I cannot demo one in Europe it would be great to hear some first hand impressions.

  5. Yes I bought it at the DZ in Reggio Emilia. Noticed you could do the same on another trip to Fano. Insurance: Pegaso http://www.pegasoparacadutisti.it/polizze.asp Price per year: 90 euro Max coverage: 1.5M euro If I remember correctly there was also a temporary option that lasted 3 months.....but not totally sure. Another popular skydiving insurance in ITALY is Pianeta Volo http://www2.pianetavolo.it/paracadutismo.php
  6. I had to pay for an italian insurance as my skydiving Bupa International's max payout was not enough in Italy.
  7. Also in another video from Greg Rau @ UPT, double wraps are recommended as his preferred method... https://youtu.be/Ipf6tLO43n0

    Wingsuits are for people that dont know how to fly

    Apparently the idea that wingsuiting attracts people that dont know how to fly or cant be bothered to learn how to fly their bodies, is trending. Surely there are plenty of opinions out there to fuel interest.

    How Much Tunnel Time?

    After 15 hours I'm doing 2/3 ways HU with some HD exits, 2/3 ways tracking (starting to work on steeper angles). Only twice a FF 4-way with HD flower exit. Mostly these jumps are with very experienced free fliers.

    Tunnel Time vs. Buying a rig (New skydiver)

    Whichever way you choose you are going to have to seriously up your budget if you want to learn to fly your body. I would suggest 8/10 hrs of tunnel time is a great investment towards body flying skills. Ideally at least keeping current with rental gear while getting comfortable under canopy. Then, you will be faced with the even more difficult budget decision: coaching in the sky or in the tunnel.
