  1. I've got a bracket for front mount helmets. Not sure if you are talking about a top-mount? I have 2 milled aluminum ones waiting for coating. I rattle canned my prototype. Which is holding up well. It was more expensive on the milling the originally planned. But the shop did a great job on them. I designed this one so I can keep the camera mounted and access the card/battery compartment. I only have to take the camera off only a few times a day. Its light and works great. I have 2 bare aluminum brackets available. Still working on a bullet proof bracket for the modded connector. You can see it on the right of the camera. www.canopyflightcenter.com www.skydivesac.com www.guanofreefly.com

  8. Yes, The Meet is on. This Saturday, 9am. @ Skydive Sacramento Working on cost for the league to cover basic expenses and would like to pay judges for their time.

  9. Will update the SDS Site tomorrow. Its a bit muddy all around the pond but a week ago it was starting to dry. This last bit of rain, well made the whole thing all wet, AGAIN. Attached are pics. Thanks to Kurt Issel. pg-pond-01 This was the first swoop on the pond with it half full. Yes, I'm buying the beer. pg-pond-02 3rd run on the water after we filled 3/4 of the way. and rough pano of the whole swoop. TJ made it out there and got a little muddy after getting out of the pond, someone else already has the first chow. There is some minor things to improve on it, but it is a legit 230'x60'. That the biggest but a lot better than nothing. I'll keep people update as the field dries out. www.canopyflightcenter.com www.skydivesac.com www.guanofreefly.com
  10. Yeah I talked with Mr. Albert Bertchold last season getting the league started again here. It had about a 2 year lay off. Andy Demars organized before that did a great job with little turn out. We had a slow start I think we averaged 5 per meet. Hope for a few more This year. I think the pond will help. I'll give you a buzz and talk soon. www.canopyflightcenter.com www.skydivesac.com www.guanofreefly.com

  14. We have a few sitting around. Thanks for taking it apart, now I don't have to. It is amazing, just like tape based cameras the tape and battery are the biggest parts of the camera. Not much to the unit over all. If they could find a better battery solution the units could be considerably smaller. www.canopyflightcenter.com www.skydivesac.com www.guanofreefly.com
  15. Anyone have any news or results from the comps? The website is a little sluggish on getting results up. www.canopyflightcenter.com www.skydivesac.com www.guanofreefly.com
