    I say good for him for trying, and it's great that he'll be ok and wants to jump again, but it seems like the instructors knew it wasn't safe considering that before he jumped Probably should stick to tandems in the future.

    my 6th jump AFF-L6 video

    Looks great to me... my flips aren't nearly as purty I'm sure "If the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girl's sports such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing." - Homer Simpson

    Next AFF jump question

    I remember saying to myself as I left the plane, "arch, straighten legs." "If the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girl's sports such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing." - Homer Simpson

    Cobra 170

    Thanks. This is a 9-cell canopy, and from what I have been told is a Sabre 2 knockoff. It has been inspected by a rigger who gives the thumbs up (with the exception of needing a few minor repairs) and says it should be a good starter canopy. I just wonder a fair price. I found another thread about the Cobra 170 which also indicated there isn't a lot of info on the canopy. I believe it was a British manufacturer that is now out of business.

    Cobra 170

    Does anyone have a Cobra 170 main? The question is for a used canopy with a few hundred jumps, needing minor repairs (under $50 worth), what would be a fair price? I know there a lot of factors to be considered, but even for a range I'm not quite sure. Thanks. -Mitch "If the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girl's sports such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing." - Homer Simpson

    AFF Landings

    As for me, my jumps were in the twenties before I had a nice, long stretch of great landings. (However, I recently started wearing a weight belt that changed my wing loading which changed everything. Now I'm learning to land again .) I've learned it's small, constant adjustments at final approach and during the final flare. At first I flared too late and gave up. Then, I started flaring too high, and I had some times where I pretty much stalled out several feet off the ground. That is very scary. Luckily I never hurt myself other than bruises and sore muscles. It seems to me if you can PLF, you're doing fine. It's better than flaring high. Soon enough, you'll get the feel for it.

    Turbo Z

    Sounds like good advice. Thank you. "If the Bible has taught us nothing else, and it hasn't, it's that girls should stick to girl's sports such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing." - Homer Simpson

    Turbo Z

    Thanks for all of your input. I weigh 125lbs. I haven't tried the Turbo Z 165 yet. For the moment I'm staying on a larger canopy (190). Since starting to use a weight belt my landings are way off. I need to learn to land again. Hopefully I'll adjust soon, but in the meanwhile I'd like a more forgiving canopy. In a few weeks when I've moved back down to the Spectre 170 and am comfortable with that, maybe I'll try the other.
