  1. I have two Vespas and Skyhelmets Fujin. :-) What i did not like on the G3 and i am not sure the G4 is different ist the that on the back the helmet is quite high leaving a large unprotected are. In July i whitnessed an injury on the tailgate of a MI8 helicopter. On exit the jumper hit the tailgate with the back of his head, his G3 was just too high to potect his head. The impact made a very noticable sound but in the end the jumper was lucky and only ended up with a large bloody wound on the back of his head. Could have had a different outcome.
  2. Where exactly in Germany are you? 5 hours form Klatovy has dozens of DZs. Sone hints. http://www.toratora.eu/--> great events. DZ Radfeld in Austria only a few weekends in Oktober check pink.at for times. Nice Mountain scenery. http://www.skydivefano.com/ Italy very nicely located at the adreatic sea. Not sure when there are good events, we alos go there as a group in August. https://www.mountaingravity.ch/ Hopefully they will have that event again in 2020. Did not happen in 2019 and 2018 due to construction on the airport is what i heard.
  3. Thanks everyone, i finally found the time to try all three. I lke VLC the best, i already have it but did not realize it can cut as well. I only have one two tiny issues to solve. I want to keep the original file name and i cannot skip forwar while the new video is recorded even though it is mentiones in the instruction but i will figure that out. Thanks everyone.
  4. Hello I am looking for a simple software to trim the files from each jump. It should be done without recoding the whole video again. Does anyone have any tips? Should be for windows 10.
  5. I think it has gotten better with the realisation of the risks involved in skydiving. Looking that the incident reports though there are still plenty of incidents where a larger more doctile canopy could have made the incident less severe or not happen at all. I am not just talking about missjudged high performance landings. I don't see meaningfull change in that area given that is is still the biggest single cause for accidents.
  6. Yes, but most skydivers choose not to learn from incidents and don't lessen the danger.
  7. Maybe you should also consider that a smaller and especially more eliptical canopy will not open as reliable as your bigger more conservative canopyhavin. Most of the time you will get away with having to go for the reserve but there are things that can go wrong with emergeny procedurees aas well. This may apply to less experienced jumpers more than to routine jumpers.
  8. Is Oakland somewhere in Afghanistan or Jemen or why is there a family loosing 4 to gunfire? Yes i know it is somewhere in Trumpcountry. You guys really are whilling to pay a high price for your second amendment. (No disussion needed you can do whatever you want in your country.)
  9. Not neede in Germany, not even when i jump in Italy with my german license.
  10. i hope, i was not aware 2019 is already canceled. The homepage only says canceled for 2018
  11. How much do you pay more for gas in the US compared to France eacht month and how much for healthcare? The French and US Americans are just very different when it comes to rioting. If it does not cost anything you are the product.
  12. and then we can pay $0.40 a kilowatt-hour for electricity like Germany does today. Is that what you want? First of all, i am not paying %0.40 for a kw/h and i am not sure you will find an electrical company that has such a high price and if you do it is a rip off. I am paying 0.27€ for a kw/h and it is not the cheapest option available. Most of that is indeed taxes and a fee used to subsedise what was uncompetitive renewables, now they are competitive in some cases or are getting there. Germany has cut on the subsedies for new renewable projects, so everyhting that is built now has a lot lower subsedies. If it does not cost anything you are the product.
  13. Today or you mean ever? The second is unthinkable. If it does not cost anything you are the product.
  14. So you used a link to Fox news to prove it is true *.... that is truly hilarious. Kind of like posting a link to state owned Korean Media to prove how successfull the Korean economy is. * to certain posters If it does not cost anything you are the product.
