    VIDEO: Z-Flock 3.0, A Gathering of Wings

    I just finished watching it. Needless to say, great job Matt. Of course as always, my favorite part is the happy face
  2. Come on Matt and Mark. Don't tell me you don't get the humor in it (oops! I guess I forgot the little smilies ). You know there is all kinds of stuff being done in WS, some of it cool, some of it stupid. But if the people doing it (including ourselves) think it's cool and fun then good for them. What I meant, like Mark said, people should do "whatever blows their skirt up" or whatever floats their boat. Even though I give you static for not doing acrobatics with me that much lately. In case I still didn't explain myself, there is no such thing as WS ping pong, WS hackey sack, or WS golf (not to my knowledge ), but if someone was doing that, it would be considered stupid by some and cool by others. 100% of the people are never going to agree on wether or not somethings done in WS will be cool or stupid. P.S. Thanks for the files. They helped. WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds
  3. Robi and Jarno: All I have to say is: I totally agree with you. Well said. Do what makes you happy and let other people do the same: WS BASE, WS acrobatics, WS flocking, WS stunts, WS ping pong, WS hackey sack, WS golf, whatever! Just have fun and be safe.

    "I don't know how Omar held his arms, so maybe he will pipe in as well." -Chuck All I can say is that I flew it like I would fly my Acro since they were very similar and it was a sweet ride. For years I have been wanting to try this suit because it made sense to me (for my personal needs and flying style). Not that I am into this sort of thing, but that thing can glide like noboby's business. I gave a small review in the Flock & Dock thread. "I actually really like the suit except for the stupid center-pull arm release." -Chuck What I didn't like about that was that the release doesn't stay on when going head down . "If I owned one, I would rig it with separate left/right loops..." -Chuck Me too. "The zipper system on the new versions is super clever..." -Chuck They are air tight (a kinda cool thing). "...last weekend and they were flying around eachother, making docks, flying on their back, etc." -Costyn Jarno sent me a preview. Awesome stuff guys. "Of course the the Acro surpasses all of the above and is our choice of backfly or batics of any kind these days." -Vector Boy I second that opinion .

    " I think (at the moment) the thing we shouldn't do, is try and come up with THE set of rules online. A long thread with suggestions, and letting everyone come up with his own rules, is all we need right now.... I know that when we run our small event later this year, we will try and use what we think works. And take things other people learned organizing this kind of thing into account. But I think everyone organizing a contest in the way he/she sees fit will help in seeing what works and what doesn't. And a few more years down the road, when we start to develop more in that area its time for a real set of rules used for every event...but for now...have fun and play!" -Jarno "...Stupino event was judged this way - simple and effective" -James I think that is a great idea. Jarno and James, maybe you guys can start a new sticky thread like the WS FAQ with base rules. I will be more than glad to help. Then we can run small trial events and compare their effectiveness. If you guys want to do this and want my help PM me. WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds

    If you read after the sentence you just quoted, I talk about the same thing you are saying here: "...With some structure and rules of course, but not so many..." -Omar "...perhaps the best way to handle that situation would be to allow the audience to determine who the winner is by show of their clap/vote etc." -Scott Campos This is exactly the same (alternate) idea that I had in mind but didn't bother mentioning. I think it would be a good temporary idea, at least until this type of event/competition evolves and matures. As the other sporting events I have mentioned as examples, they too evolved in a similar way, as a "fun" event/competition judged by their peers or an audience. I know because with the exception of snowboarding (done only once), I have practiced, competed and followed these sports since back in the day (old school).

    Help with wingsuit competition

    Well personally, I wish this could all be done without it being so stiff and technical and black and white. With some structure and rules of course, but not so many. Kind of like surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX, etc. Why not make it "colorful". IMHO I think it should be done more for fun and let it evolve from there. I believe that giving a bunch of technical rules to something so new that very few people are doing would discourage and intimidate anyone (newbie) wanting to try it. Again, personally I would care more about the fun of it than the prize (although winning a prize would be nice ). WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds

    "...competitions would create awareness thus creating a growing interest of "creative flying". -Omar "...artistic event (not really about winning, just about fun and creating awareness that there is more then just speed and time)." -Jarno Once again, we're on the same page . "...we want to give each time 1 to 5 points for the creative camera flying (which could be abandoned, should teams have to share camera-flyers)" -Jarno Here is a thought: How about giving camera flyers (shared or unshared) their own category within the competition and awarding them individual points for their own creative flying. I know that some camera flyers would like that. WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds

    Help with wingsuit competition

    I am really not concerned with official wingsuit (or ws competition) recognition (at least not right now). I am however, concerned with certain wingsuit interests (outside of what wingsuiting currently is). Although fun, I personally don't really care about "official" competition as most people would. I think though, that competitions would create awareness thus creating a growing interest of "creative flying". I guess I would just have to be patient and wait where all this goes. In the mean time I would have to do my part and have fun while doing it . WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds

    Wether or not Matt goes, I will do my best to be there. Call me or I will call you to plan it out. At F&D I only did ONE two way acro jump (with Ted). Next year's F&D you better not be "working". As Matt will be "working" there as well, I will need a "full time" acro partner. WINGSUIT ACROBATICS team O zone ZF#5 , HISPA#70 Blue Skies... ...Big Fat Clouds

    "Cool to see we're not the only ones liking that flying aspect..." - Jarno I second that. I have been trying to do the same thing here for the last few years, but unfortunately there has always been a certain lack of serious interest and/or skill. There are many very good WS pilots here, but only a handful have enough skills to fly acrobaticly, and out of that handful only a couple have a real interest to do this "exclusively". Like Chuck said there is another issue: having a video pilot skilled enough to stay close to the acrobats. One thing I thought of (would only work for style) is to have smoke and be judged from the ground . I will update the tips and tricks section on our WS Acrobatics website team O zone - Tips & Tricks ASAP. (I wish I didn't get so lazy on it.) It would probably give you some ideas. I wish I could afford to go to these events to either compete or video or both. Maybe someone can sponsor me (hint, hint) You know who you are . If you are interested PM me
