  1. I understand that I am late, but according to this topic it was February of 2003:
  2. Thanks for the reply. I knew and wrote in the original message about the brakes, I think it is one of reasons why it got line twists (the other is no tension on static line during deployment). Did not notice the incorrect slider settings. Stamp has at least DOM corrected with sharpie to state DOM somewhere in 90s (haha!), but manufacturer is stated to be Para-Flite... Do you know about anyone producing counterfeit copies of Safety-Flyers? That would be a bit strange… Can this (not being a genuine thing) be the reason for end cells closing randomly during flight? I can make some pictures of stamp and canopy later today.
  3. Hi. I made a jump with Safety-Flyer recently, long story short here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dn0w2OG3OQ Canopy was first drop-tested with a 32 kg kettlebell from a 45-meters pipe. It was an intentional cutaway (I put on an additional harness (Soviet PO-16) under my rig and put SF on UT-15 risers). Also used static line and PO-16 d-bag. Used self-made soft-links. I did not set the brakes. :) We later found the canopy in the field. Landing it would be a challenge for my legs and feet: its cells close for no reason, as there are no crossports. Descend rate is about 7 to 9 meters per second.
