  1. Hi all, I hope someone will have the time to give me a piece of advice. A few things about me first as I haven't posted before on this forum : My name : Morad Location : Lille, france Jump numbers : 650, mostly tracking and tracing jumps Wingsuit jumps : 13 on an S-fly Indy I recently discovered the pleasure of wingsuiting. What a thrill ! This feeling of gliding, the jump that seems to last forward even on my small wingsuit... I started with an S-fly indy which is a small wingsuit. I want to invest in what we call a level 2 wingsuit in France. (intermediate). I have my eyes, like many, on a new swift 3 but I found someone selling a funk 1 at my size for half the price of the new swift 3. What would you do ? Would a funk 1 be a good first wingsuit if I up my jumps numbers to 30/40 on the Indy ? Is now a good time to invest in swift 3 or is squirrel about to release a swift 4 ?

    Squirrel swift 3 versus funk 1

    Thank you guys. Some good information here. :-) I took my measurements with two different persons. Wasn't easy. Some of the measurements were off by up to 5 centimeters. But one of the friends had been measured for and S3 too and seemed to know how to do it. With the help of the video on the squirrel website (that could definitely be improved) and a reseller on the phone, I think I have some good measurements. :-) Up to ordering and waiting now. Will keep you posted in a few months when I get the thing.

    Squirrel swift 3 versus funk 1

    Actually, the max power level is 11 ! So funny. You can turn it up to eleven ! "When you need that extra push over the cliff"

    Squirrel swift 3 versus funk 1

    Thank you everybody for taking the time to answer me. It's really appreciated. This helps me with my decision. I'm going the Swift 3 route. :-) I do realize the suit is... swift and that it will be quite a change from the Indy. I plan on depowering it for my first jumps. Do you have a recommendation for the power level for the first jumps ? It's seems to be graded from 1 to 10. Anyways, I 'm placing my order in the comings days and I'll probably put 15 to 20 more jumps on the Indy (we rent them freefly at my club) before I receive it.
  5. Hi freeflyers, I am currently learning Head-down, coached jumps and on my own. I bumped into this ressource : Head Down: Learning to Freefly But in this day and age, I don't want to order a dvd, I want this ressource as a (paid, of course) download. Is it available anywhere ? Are there any video ressources similar to that one ? It seems pretty well done. I had seen the sitfly version. I think there is definitely a demand for such a product. Coach jumped are nice but getting a different perspectives from top foreign flyers is also good.
