  1. Only thing I can think of is the 119 crossfire packing larger than the 120 max zp main size specified by the sizing chart. Even so I would try a new pilot chute because overcoming 32lbs of pull force should be an easy task and it sounds like it is waiting until almost terminal to lift off. I replaced mine recently due to a similar situation and no longer have the problem. Edit: thing I would consider are pilot chute size, kill line length, porosity of the pilot chute

    Riser design & toggle fires

    my toggle stows are tight and it has a fold at the bottom similar to the top that stows in a similar fashion. I’ll take a few pictures when I get home from work so you’ll see what I mean. Only time I had one unstow on me was my fault (didn’t pull cats eye through little ring) Nothing eventful happened and I now take another moment to check and make sure it’s right before I continue to pack.

    Is it possible to put in a wait time between posts to slow down spammers. All the post they put up are within 2 minutes of each other. Maybe just have that on new accounts and allow the mods to lift the restriction when it’s obvious their not a spammer Edit: it appears I missed the drop down menu with suggestions and feedback in it. If a mod can move this for me it’ll be appreciated.

    First time buying gear has a helmet, googles, and altimeter bundle. I bought that when I first started and added an audible
  5. I’ll agree with you there. There’s no set limit from the manufacturer on the pdr but there is limits set on AADs. Why anyone would want one that’s past due in their rig is beyond me. It’s your absolute last chance when all else failed. Yeah sure it probably would work a little longer just fine but I want my last chance to work as best as it can. Why bother with having it in the rig otherwise
  6. Neither. Stupid jumper, lawyers, judge, jury, and the press that covers it all put enough stupid together and we get court cases that go the wrong way. if you’re willing to put your certification against that, good for you. I don’t think I would take a chance in a society where it’s fashionable to be a victim just to get likes on Facebook.
  7. Never underestimate the power of stupid. Oh well your certification
  8. Every rigger I talked to wouldn’t pack a reserve if the aad was going to expire before the next repack. EDIT: they will pack without them in the container though

    Scrisc online gear store???

    Was this made known to them? I’m sure they would want to know that one of their riggers screwed up a reserve. That being said if I was to buy a brand new rig, I would prefer it to be shipped unassembled so I can see it all with my rigger.

    Is there a "Go-to" Micro SD card?

    I have that exact camera. I’m running a scandisk ultra 64 gb and it works just fine
  11. Any specific insurance requirements or does the USPA insurance cover it? Is there any medical test that has to be done before jumping there? I’m weighing the options on if I should go sometime in the summer.

    Great beginner canopy for new A license jumper?

    I have an exit weight of 200 and my first canopy was a sabre1 170 with a pocket slider. I probably put 120 jumps on it and I’m now on a sabre2 170 which I jumped about 80 or so times with it. The sabre1 flew very similar to my pdr176 reserve except it didn’t sink as much. ( found that out last year) the sabre2 is definitely much sportier and aggressive in all aspects but it has a much softer opening. Thats my experience so far. YMMV
  13. Damn. I made quite a few jumps with him last year at Delmarva. He had no problems allowing newer jumpers in his group. Fly free my friend.

    It’s under skydiving subforum as it always has been, everything is in a different order now though so you may have scrolled right past it

    Is there a way to exit mobile view? Most other sites I visit have that option but here even requesting desktop version does nothing

    EPs: Look up before pulling reserve?

    In the description it says it was a hard pull and not a pilot chute in tow. In this case he had nothing out to chop

    So embarrassing. Need to repeat aff2

    I repeated cat B twice a few years ago. Not uncommon but yes the money part sucks. First time I mistaken the legs out signal for the pull signal (I only saw the index finger) and pulled at 9,000 feet. Second time was a month later and I was stiff as a board, little to no arch, arms too far forward, ect. I can add more to this later but I need to get back to work

    exit order

    I used the search under articles instead of forums and this is the first one I found. There was more under this one

    Is there a way to have the first few post of a new member to need approval of an admin or moderator? I know it will mean more work on their part but right now there is 501 post for pharmaceutical and other random crap posted by one user today. The Disabled Skydiver section starts on page 20. If you have that ability I know it may not be what you want to do but thats a lot of work to get rid of all that junk. Downside is you might chase off new members so maybe a daily post limit until there's some sort of confirmation that they are actually a skydiver or wanting to be. It's just frustrating to have to search through all the garbage. any other ideas?

    Are Ifly encouraging bad body position?

    These skills you'll need sooner rather than later anyway. Getting back to "stability" after a maneuver is more valuable to me than just holding it

    AFF Level 1 with one instructor?

    After 24 hours of tunnel time, do they even remember how to fly on their belly? I'm sure that had a little weight in that decision anyway.

    Does this sound right?

    Not in the least, no radios at this DZ’s. He landed over a gentle roll in the horizon, where I knew were some pretty good size rocks and boulders. I started walking out about 10 minutes with not seeing any sign from him. I found him sitting down and smarting over a broken humerous. I called the DZ and asked for a car that made its way out a bout an hour later. The AFFI gave a very demeaning speech to all of us before the jump on Sky Van procedures, the fact that we had been jumping it for the three previous days didn’t seem to matter much. This was the first and last time I saw him, a short, cocky, dark haired Australian. Later, when I asked him why he didn’t follow thru with his student, he was all apologies and had his hat in his hands. Knowing then what I know now, I would have made more of an issue. I can go to Walmart right now and buy a few sets of handheld radios for under $100. Sure the radio could die, batteries could die, the instructor holding the radio could have a heart attack and die but it gives the students whose never seen the dropzone from that angle before the best chance of making it back uninjured. With the amount of adrenaline they have after their first skydive they may be directly above the dropzone and not see it because they forgot what it looked like when they saw the map in class. Seasonal changes can make it look completely different as well. I've only been to a few dropzones so far but each one had students on radio whether they were aff or iad student so this to me seems odd.

    Actual time to steerable canopy

    I haven't had any slammers on this. The pocket slider seems to work well and I roll the nose when I pack as well. It is also lined with vectran so no shrinking line to screw up my opening. With that said its not as comfortable of an opening as say a pilot or a sabre 2.

    Actual time to steerable canopy

    I have a fully inflated canopy in 3-4 seconds after I pull. 170 sabre 1 with pocket slider loaded at 1.2. Usually I'm open within 4-500 feet. As far as the time beforehand, that's all dependent on who I jump with, how many, agreed break off altitude, and altitude itself.
