    TI study guide

    I understand that there is the manual for tandem rigs, with emergency procedures described, I studied thoes. Now I just want to find something similar to AFP manual, if it exists, compare them and try to learn as much as I can. But thanks anyway

    TI study guide

    Ok, so I planing to get tandem rating in future. I tried to find some handbook or manual of tandem emergency procedure or a TI study guide. I only manage to locate AFP "TM handbook". Maybe someone knows where to find more of thoes? Thanks!
  7. Nevermind. There are countries where having TSO on H/C and reserve is not a must, and more DIY is allowed.... Yes it is, and Lithuania one of thoes. We have plenty of russian gear in service, and this reserve handle looks like a serious safety issue to me. Simple scenario, stitching of the loop, that holds metal cable, gets damaged by sharp edge of the tube... I'm sure the rest is obviosus
  8. Please name the manufacturer of this reserve handle.
  9. I think it's not a best place to ask about Russian gear on Try russian forums, the Flamingos are commonly used there. Besides it's too late to ask, as you already flying it
  10. Hi, maybe some one knows where is the label on Dolphin of Dolphin student is placed ? Thanks!
  11. Maybe some one knows, does manufacturers give discount for US military only, or it goes to any allyed forces ?
  12. I guess you don't get it, if an AFF instructors like freeflying, they don't teach their students to sitfly at AFF course, it's not safe, the same thing goes to tandems...
  13. Holy shit...! I remember the bounce bingo with your name in the firs line, but now I think you are truly a few steps ahead of the other competitors...
  14. Thanks, I saw that one in classifieds, but it's not the right size for me, besides it costs 50 euros more than the new one from the stock
  15. Ok, and what about GTI or S3? Maybe they are the better choice ?
  16. Hi to all. I'm new to wingsuit, just got 2 flights on demo Firebird. And guess what - I liked it
  17. Put on your harness and fasten the legs belts. When it's done the pants should be normal lenght. If wear pants without the harness they are usually seems to long.
  18. Or he thinks you are a scam Happend onece to me Speaking on topic, be sure the guy selling the kit has is, ask to make specific foto of some parts that are not on the pictures you have, and exuses as "my camera broken" doesn't counts, go and borrow it, if buing on you can ask some references, maybe some one known on the forum can vote fore the seller, ask specific questions, try to use rigger service.
  19. I just modifyed my Protec liner using pipe isolaiting foam. I removed the soft part of original liner and replaces it with isolating foam. The result is in first picture. I will cover the foam with some fabric, just looking one right now. Oh, and one more important upgrade in second pic
  20. Yap, now if you had a cutaway and lost reserve pilot chute you only have to wait another one for 15 months to jumt the rig again A have Atom too, already bought a back up rig
  21. I disagree, a lot of people use yahoo accounts, inclding myself. I have bought several items from classified. And the was few times when seller calld me a scam. For example when I asked bank account number to transfer the money ( I dont know you guys in the US but in europe it's normal to transfer money dirrect to bank account, and if you know that number you only can put money in not to take them out...) I also have paid for several items throught Western Union service, but make some checks, for example ask the phone number to get in touch or ask to make photo of a specific part of the rig to know that the person actually have it. For the paypal - my country don't accept that, and no one uses cheques there. So what, not to buy?? I don't think so, just check everything five times and only then perform any money transactions
  22. Hey, looking for new rig and considering Aerodyne Icon. I now jump crosfire2 119 but planing get 109 in future. The Aerodyne chart says max for I2, it's ok for crossfire 109 but the pack volume of 119 is 342. Maybe some one had experience getting CF2 119 in I2, how does it feat and does it feat at all (considering canopy isn't new 1300+ jumps maybe) ?? Thanks
  23. It costs 980 usd with standart options which incude hip rings. I have seen quite few of them, but they were made well, we also have one Quest student container at our DZ, no bad response. But in your plase I'd better choose something of US manufacturer, especially regarding future support question. And remember to add sending cost
