  1. A wings W-14 is the size container I’m jumping at the moment. It is made for a 190 main but my 170 sabre2 fits in there fine. my reserve is a PR-176 but you might be able to get an optima 193 in there

  3. I’m using a sony 20mm 2.8 prime with an ultra wide converter on it. I have heard of people using sigma lenses that take great photos but the auto focus is slower. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/913561-REG/sony_sel20f28_20mm_f_2_8_alpha_e_mount.html
  4. if the second and third one are both “a” lines, “b”s ect. I can see them rubbing each other right on the soft link causing faster wear. I don’t see a 180 twist being an issue on one line but there’s no reason to leave any of this there since it’s so easy to fix. will it cause issues with flight?.... “maybe” It’ll be better if it is right before you use it. thats my 2 cents anyway.
  5. I find it harder to look at my handles with a full face helmet on. not significantly harder but enough to be noticeable. a fogged up visor could be one less variable they don’t want to deal with or train for. much easier to pull goggles down if needed.
  6. don’t forget about the people screaming “go” behind you even though they don’t know if the spot is good
  7. I’m flying a W14 wings right now and I think the 170 sabre2 in it right now fits kinda soft. I was thinking of trying a 150, can you shorten the closing loop enough to maintain decent pin pressure or would it be a belly only rig?
  8. You’ll get better over time. When you get your own rig you can practice anytime if you have the space
  9. Series of a canopy opening I took earlier this year https://adobe.ly/2P1minU edit it appears adobe likes it out of order
  10. That wingloading was about where I was when I was at 50 jumps but I remained current up until that point. If you can get a 210 in there for a little while it would be in your best interest.
  11. That is a direct copy/paste from an amazon review and you’re only other post looks like it took a few key words from the post above it. There’s no way I’m clicking on your link.
  12. Might have been custom made to that size. I would contact aerodyne directly with the serial number to know for sure. I’m assuming you’re looking for a line set
  13. I would say, get about 50 or so jumps in, take a canopy course, rent or borrow a few different canopies to try and then you’ll have a better idea of what you’ll want to fly. When I first tried a pilot 168 I really liked the opening, the light rear riser pressure and flat glide. Once I experience the toggle turns an flare power of the sabre2 170 I quickly forget about the pilot.
  14. The best people to ask is the instructors that are familiar with your flying abilities. Short answer will likely be it’s to small. With full gear, your wing load is around 1.3. Knowing nothing else about you or your abilities I would suggest a 210-220 range at the minimum. Again talk to your instructors not just random people on the internet. One other note the title of the post looks like and ad to sell a rig instead of being posted in the classifieds. It happens in this section often enough that this post might be ignored. I almost did anyway
  15. So you Joined in 2014 just to reply to a 14 year old post 5 years later?
