    Why do Tandems have 9-Cell reserves?

    Quick question, Tried Google and searching here first but nothing came up. Does anyone know why Tandem reserves are 9 cell and not 7 cell? Looking for genuine answers, not "I think....." ;-) -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    Sony X1000V

    Liking the camera so far, but things I don't like are * Bought 2 different UHS-I 3 cards that won't work with 4K * GPS layover only shows horizontal speed * Interval photo is only 2.1 megapixel, Single Photo mode is 8.8 but hard to use in freefall Any one know if the HDMI supports 4K? -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    Swoop shoes

    I'm on my second pair of Adidas Boat shoes, designed for watersports they have holes in the sole, they dry quick and allow ventilation http://www.adidas.com/us/climacool-boat-lace-shoes/B27263.html -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    Crossfire 3

    There will be a Crossfire 3 and and Crossfire X, The X is higher performance and may take on another name. At the moment they are focusing on getting the Safire3 and the wingsuit canopy out on the market -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    New Garmin Virb X & Virb XE

    This looks interesting... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i3WhjxToPQ If the GPS is any good it could also be useful for swoop training and also wingsuit. Here's some more info I stole from some guys review: - Both models now have WiFi, GPS, accelerometer, and full ANT+ sensor capabilities (previously only the higher end VIRB had it) - Addition of gyroscope, increased sensor data collection at higher rate - Slight resolution increase to 1440/30p for VIRB XE - New slow-mo options: 240fps @ 480p, and 120fsp @ 720p (XE only) - Natively waterproofed to 50-meters (no external case required) - Flat front glass/case that Garmin says will repel water droplets - Ability to connect to supported Bluetooth-enabled OBD sensors (automotive primarily) - Ability to connect to Bluetooth 4.0 audio devices (i.e. microphones) - New ‘Pro’ mode for adjusting white balance, sharpness, ISO, exposure bias, and color profile - New auto image rotation option, which ensures photo/video is right-side up - New continuous photo mode - New photo burst to 10 frames per second for VIRB X (previously was 6 fps - New photo burst to 30 frames per second for VIRB XE (previously was 6 fps) - Ability to have camera ‘sleep’ in between long-interval timelapses (up to 120-seconds now) - Dedicated photo-taking button (also automatically tags video highlight too) - Ability to capture Garmin HRM-RUN Running Dynamics & Garmin Vector Cycling Dynamics data - Improved microphone that isn’t blocked by rubber stopper, works underwater - Ability to share videos/photos directly from Garmin VIRB mobile app - Ability to create gauge/dashboard overlays form the Garmin VIRB mobile app on videos - Ability to control and stream up to 10 cameras from the Garmin VIRB mobile app - Support for 128GB micro-SD cards (increased from 64GB) - Uses GoPro mount on camera itself -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232

    Tile App - Find Your Gear?

    I know how to find kit, if you're surrounded by nice big freshly mown fields then yeah it can be pretty easy, But I'm jumping right on the edge of a town, and my last 3 cutaways have resulted in my kit floating away in to town, fortunately for me I have always got my kit back, but I know of many people that have lost theirs. -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ Sponored by NZ Aerosports, CYPRES 2, Tonfly & L&B Team Dirty Sanchez #232
