  1. Thanks a lot @husslr187 @karma. More questions haha. Is there any go-to solution for attaching DSLR? I've seen some anti-twist plates etc. Also what to do with camera's display, does it need some frame/cage?
  2. Hi there :) I'm building my first camera setup, so I need several advices :) Cookie fuel is arriving with Dual Top Plate and I'm planning to use GoPro 7 Black in combination with Canon EOS 90D. Now questions. How do you attach DSLR, like mine, to the Dual Top Plate? What is your go to lens for skydiving? Optimal camera settings/mode for skydiving photography? Bite switch vs tongue switch or something else? Adding GoPro lenses or filters? Tips and tricks :) Probably, questions are too broad, so just jump in with your experience etc. This is the new thing for me and I'm here to listen :)

  4. Hi folks, usually when I'm thinking of skydiving gear I'm not thinking about the footwear, but, recently I've noticed that people are using very wide range of stuff. Especially I'm thinking of footwear for disciplines like swoop. I'm currently in a very beginning phase of swoop learning so I'm interested in hearing your best practices or any advices about this topic. What is the best option to achieve both - optimal mobility and in the same time good protection? Thanks
  5. Later I've looked at other videos of deployments I had and figured it out I'm actually not waving at all. Somehow I've used to it and never actually thought I'm not doing it. Good news is that bug was quite easy to fix when you are aware of it. Also, since then I'm analyzing every opening using 360 camera and I'm noticing two dominant patterns even when my body is in optimal position Dbag sometimes starts spinning while lines are stretching (after one or two rubber bands, so in the early phase). I've changed the rubber bands, even changed the rubber band type and still sometimes dbag just starts spinning, maybe in 2 out of 10 jumps. Lines stretches properly, everything comes out (and it looks ok) and suddenly whole cocoon make 180deg (so I'm assuming there is also some sort of packing error, maybe I'm inducing cocoon hesitation) While packing I'm double stowing with 2-3cm lines left on the side, and during the last couple of pack jobs I'm following instructions similar to this one (video), except I don't have semi-stowless d bag. In short: Take outer cells and turn them in toward the center Open and expose the center cell I would appreciate any advice you may have for me :)
  6. Here comes (probably) a better angle https://youtu.be/_6E6ytENoQ4 it looks like to me that I had a poor body position after tracking (braking only with one hand, and keeping the other one on the PC)
  7. Thanks @Deyan, I have around 340 jumps in total and 75-80 jumps on this canopy.
  8. Hi people, During this weekend I had a quite aggressive line twist, at least from my point of view ATM. This is X-fire 124ft (loaded around 1.57) made by Icarus World. I'm not 100% sure what went wrong and what caused this situation, so please shoot your opinions and advises :) Thanks!
  9. Yup,that was my case :) Icarus World sent me a kit with A2 lines and now everything is fine :)
  10. First of all thanks for the reply @riggerbob. Yup, perfectly calm. Also twists are for sure an issue, but this was happening even after straightening up the lines. EDIT: Not sure if my feet are crossed. My friend helped me with some calculations and it seems that inflated PC (24in) is producing around 150N of drag force in normal full flight. Attached the same issue (manifested even more) from a different angle. See the pink x-fire on the left. xfire.mp4
  11. Hi, I'm experiencing quite weird behavior of my x-fire 124ft during full flight. Canopy is constantly wobbling around and sometimes it looks pretty scary. During the first several times my assumption was that turbulence is pretty hard but then I've realized that other skydivers aren't experiencing the same issue. So I've decided to jump and record behavior of my canopy in order to investigate the issue. Here you can see one of the jumps. What I can see is that PC is still inflated and it's pretty tense, so maybe this is part of the issue. What do you think? Additional information. Canopy have around 50 jumps This is my 5th or so jump on this type of canopy WL is 1.58 This is not just happening near the ground One more time link to the video Thanks
