  1. There is Skydive Verona. The web site is: http://www.paracadutismoverona.it/ I saw a video presentation of the DZ at the POPS world meet last week as Verona will hold the next meet in 2010. Facilities looked good, they have a Porter as a jump ship. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  2. So if you found driving in NZ scary - how was driving in the larger cities like Sydney and Melbourne on OZ recently? Are you going to post any video from your Australian visit? --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.

    Very Funny Ad

    Have a look at this new Australian Beer ad. Very funny... http://www.flashbeer.com.au/ --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  5. As stated above in this thread, if you're looking to have the swoop alarms, then you should check out the Optima. The Optima is extremely accurate, and always in sync with my VISO. Even if you wanted to have a visual altimeter double as an audible with swoop alarms, you'd have an extremely hard time hearing an alarm that's on you wrist/hand if you were jumping high performance canopies. [disclaimer] And no, you don't have to jump a high performance canopy to enjoy the benefits of "swoop" alarms, or to swoop period [/disclaimer] Perfect Combo? Optima in the ear, VISO on your wrist/hand/leg. Cheers! --Jairo I assume from your post you have a VISO. Can you explain which data it logs? The information on the L&B web site is not quite clear. How does the data logging capability comare to the Alti-track? --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  6. Is that a good or a bad thing? Jokes aside, Michelle (RMW) does some really nice stuff. Have a chat with her and se if she has any suggestions in regard to colours and patterns. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull.

  7. Yes, not an audible, but L&B web site states: Digital Alti-Meter- Stores detailed altitude information about the last jump for later review Digital Speed-Meter- Stores detailed speed information about the last jump for later review Jump Counter- Electronic logbook, storing and displaying information about the last 200 jumps. - Can be used to keep track on the number of jumps on a rig. - Can be reset at any time, but time and date for the last reset remains stored and cannot be erased. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull.

  8. I am currently looking for an alti with logging capabilities (especially fall rates etc.). I do have a pro-dytter for audible alarms. I was looking at the Neptune, but after doing some searches here and looking at the reviews have become very concerned about the quality / reliability / bug issues. Firstly I do not like the idea of an alti malfunctioning mid-air and secondly I live in OZ and not so sure I could get the type of service back-up you get in the States (especially time it would take to ship forth and back for service / replacement). So I have been sitting and waiting to check out the new L&B products first. Like the alti-track features but the price set for it down here is very high. The VISO looks like an alternative but will wait until I see feed-back here and fully understand it’s logging capabilities. I know it has less features then the Neptune, but if it has enough features for my needs I probably buy it based on the product quality I know L&B provide. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull.

  9. The Germans used the "Kohnke" in the 60's and 70's - I think it was static line only. Talking about ugly.... --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  10. http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0,8659,18593440-5002861,00.html Steve is a really nice guy and a skydiver - congrats!! For the Yanks here: The Commonwealth Games are a mini-Olympics for the nations of the British Commonwealth with participation of more then 70 countries and territories. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull.

  11. DZ.com has a number of forums based on interest and even language. Question: What do people think about a dedicated POPS forum for us "old" folks? --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  12. Could you elaborate why you don't like / recommend psycho? I have cleaner openings with psycho with my Safire. Just curious why people would think it is a "bad" method. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  13. I psycho pack my Safire 2. Always good openings and it is quicker to pack this way - especially when the canopy is new (much easier to get into the D-Bag). --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
  14. I'm not jealous! I'm not! No reason to be. It's a public holiday tomorrow and I was planning to go to the DZ but the temperature will be up there again and it's just too damn hot. I have jumped when it was minus 10 C on the ground (in Denmark actually) and know how unpleasant that is. But trust me, jumping in extreme heat is bad too and actually can be quite dangerous. Easy to run into thermals low and being smacked into the ground... So I will spend the time i my pool instead. --------------------------------------------------------- When people look like ants - pull. When ants look like people - pray.
