  1. 1100-1500 USD depending on condition, colors and options (articulation, veclro needing replacement, etc). once you get it you may end up spending more money to put a larger/domed slider on the hornet to tame the openings.

    Gear broker?

    I keep doing that for many people on my dz - some people seem it more convienent, others just dont care to deal with email phone calls and shipping. I do online sales for a living, so that's no big deal.

    Jump with a HC3, 5 or 7 camera?

    on that note I can say that HC3 is an awesome camera, but its low light performance SUCKS, and nightvision is even worse. Furhtermore, anybody sidemounting this camera or thinking about it is crazy in my opinion.
  4. The one I remember was the Aerial Egress - former BR's offshoot. http://www.saferamerica.com/productDetail.asp?categoryID=15&productID=65

    How to mount a dytter to the outside of a Z1??

    after tinkering along the same lines, and coming up with a zip tie solution.... about 20 jumps later a riser strike solidified my opinion that upgrading to an STI was cheaper :) good luck

    Is a 1995 Dolphin worth $300?

    If it's in good shape, and the harness fits you well, and already has a BOC - then (in my opinion) - YES. Assuming it has all the bags, PCs, risers.
  10. I am not sure what kind of complexity you need, but I manage about 30GB of photos using PICASA from Google. I like it alot.

    Rounds...

    Both Apex and Asylum (CR) have BASE specific rounds. I believe 19ft But for 50 bucks you can score yourself a Phantom 24' with pH test done and kevlar reinforcement. your call :) P.S. Apex calls their H2O and Asylum calls theirs Tektite

    best helmet to mount a Sony TRV 33

    About the only useful thing I can tell you that while people have side mounted the TRV33/22/19, it feels real funky and sticks out alot - I PERSONALLY would recommend top mounting. As far as which helmet - that's up to your comfort and price range.

    Any feedback on a Parachi jumpsuit?

    My experience is with a single suit that I bought on eBay from the company themselves. It's a cheap piece of junk. The workmanship is poor. The stitching looks like a 5 year old did it. And their suit for average built male seems to take into account a HUGE beer belly. Basically myself at 177cm 82kg would have to get a HUGE beer gut to make the suit fit. Basically I was so dissapointed that I just stored the suit as I cannot justify selling that POS to anybody, not even for $20 hope this helps...
