  1. one other thing I thought about is AFTER the TI chops his main you have a situation very similar to a horseshoe malfunction and you can treat it as such. only exception is you still have a main and reserve. two trys then deploy main. it would probably be easy to lose altitude awareness in this situation so this is likely your best bet
  2. there’s way too many variables to have one solid answer. the only thing consistent in this situation is there is a person entangled with the drogue. do whatever you can to make the situation better, equipment can be replaced. chances are the TI will chop before you exhaust your other options to free yourself and reach for your knife. at that point do whatever you need to, to live. they won’t be happy if you cut their equipment but they’ll be even less happy if you burn in.
  3. if the drogue is inflated with someone tangled up in it, the cameraman is not tracking anywhere. but yes the TI duty is the safety of the student so they will chop it and it will be all your problem.
  4. 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

  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. don’t forget about the people screaming “go” behind you even though they don’t know if the spot is good
  10. 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?
  11. You’ll get better over time. When you get your own rig you can practice anytime if you have the space
  12. Series of a canopy opening I took earlier this year https://adobe.ly/2P1minU edit it appears adobe likes it out of order
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
