    In defense of Icarus Tandem

    2,500 tandems here, wish they were all on Icarus, spot on about the toggle configuration as well.

    You need 500 jumps at a lot of them, not just the C. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  3. You can hook your harness and risers up to suspension points and practice on the ground Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  4. I know Mitchell, Kozak and maybe a few more from your crew. I doubt you followed their advice when it came to buying that VK. Everyone so far ahead of the progression recommendations has a story they tell themselves. Fact is, 2.6 is an outrageous WL for anybody with your experience. This is coming from someone who bought a Velo 103 at 700 jumps, so I took the similar risks, here I am 3000 jumps later still jumping 103 VK... not saying something bad will result but it's a red flag.

  5. 700' is too low for 270 with a VK at 2.6. I'm above 800 and only loading 2.3... just my opinion. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  6. Totally correct, recovery arc will never be like a speedwing, mainly due to lineset length. Maybe a stiletto 150 but you are Lready pushing the w/l recommendations if your jump #s are accurate. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  7. Anyone using Chipolo? $25 per unit, 200' range and 12 mo battery apparently. We have a lot of trees, could be a good compromise vs the Iota cost. https://chipolo.net/ Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream

    NEW Sigma manual

    Anyone else think it might be useful to have a written section on unusual situations? Strut hang-up, cameraman entangled with drogue, etc. ? Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  11. Blindfolded jump on radio with a delay. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  12. As a TM I also like to correct this problem when dropping the rig at the packing mat if I see it rather than leaving it to the packer. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream

    Yanni, you should watch this talk https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f2O-Dpw0Yfc. My guess is you are in the 'give it 100% on every jump' phase. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream

    I think u can get more out of that turn, you may have missed a step or two downsizing when you did. More harness and higher initiation perhaps. Watch the highlights of the major comps, the top pilots don't have roll in the canopy during the last 100'. If you make a mistake and need to dig out or trim out you'll be at a disadvantage if you have roll near the ground. The freestyle element is totally secondary to a safe and efficient plane out and course entry. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
