  1. Not only is it the cheapest AAD, but the batteries never need changing and it never needs servicing. Almost seems too good to be true. What’s the point of buying a vigil or cypress in this case? What are your opinions on the M2?
  2. That’s interesting especially considering that the sabre 2 is supposed to come with the 26 one stock, it seems like they had just sent you the wrong original slider https://www.performancedesigns.com/docs/linetrims/SA_190-260_P01_P02_LTC.pdf Have you tried pulling on the rear or front risers during opening? That should get the canopy open much quicker, if you haven’t tried it then go for it next time. Just “flare” the rears 2 or 3 times while it’s sniveling above One question I have though, is with the domed slider does the slider often get hung up?

    Crossport fraying?

    I bought a used spectre 170 with 400 jumps and I noticed the crossports on the ribs between the cells have some fraying on them all, nothing too substantial maybe like an eigth or quarter of an inch deep in some parts on them, and they’re all fairly consistantly frayed is it worth having something done to them or is it best to leave them be?
  4. That’s so strange that he would be vertically descending so quickly, I can understand going over 29mph forward with the wind on your back, but downward, on a nav 280?
  5. You think even the 45mph “intermediate” settting on an AAD would be reasonable then? Can’t see why i’d be descending at a vertical rate of 45mph below 1,000 feet on my canopy, I don’t swoop
  6. If canopy flying conservatively at 1,000 feet and below at a 1 to 1 wingloading ratio, would it be wise for wingsuit flyers to change their AAD setting to student? On the offhand chance of tumbling down passed out in a suit but going less than the 78mph minimum for regular setting The student setting goes off if your rate of descent is over 29mph, I don’t think a canopy 1 to 1 would be going close to that vertical speed under normal conditions, right? If one has a changeable cypress then i assume it’s not worth shelling out for a new wingsuit cypress right?
  7. Any audibles out there with a volume that can be adjusted quiet enough to like not cause hearing damage long term?
  8. It seems to be one of the more common malfunctions, but how could it be prevented? Surely with the amount of times that it happened, that it’s not always caused by someone who just neglected to check their 3-rings, right?
  9. Cool, i’m interested to hear how it goes
  10. Here’s a question, as for the domed slider PD gave you, how different are the dimensions? Meaning is the length and width the same as the original, and how much extra fabric did they add in the middle to make it domed?
  11. Wtf? Were all those injuries caused by skydiving?
  12. Appreciate the perspective man.
  13. I just mean that I think a lot of the reason why slammers happen is because the wind force isn’t coming at the slider from the right direction to keep it in place, assuming that it’s properly quartered in the first place. It was just a mostly irrelevant hypothetical scenario to basically get around to the point that I think domed sliders might act as a bit of a safety feature by helping the wind penetrate the slider more efficiently in unusual circumstances
