    bigger is better...?

    to each his own within limits, just know that if you upgrade to early to a big acro suits you have to be ready to deal with some nasty consequences if things go wrong and they do, unexpectedly and violently. if you cant barrel roll, back fly a small suit its pretty much a foregone conclusion that you will experience some nasty flat spins on your back begging to be let out. if it happens on a small suit you learn how to feel them coming and counter before it reaches that point. In big suits problems come faster and more violent. without the small suit progression you are pretty much on your own trying to figure out what works and what doesnt to eradicate the situation while spinning like a top with your back to the ground burning through altitude. trust me you dont want to be there. if you plan to dive and flare and not get to steep you are probably safe until that one time on exit when ... ~ time is ~ time was ~ times past ~

    Wingsuit 100 way at Perris

    ive done the big way event previously so I do understand that break off does get dealt with in great detail. If the canopy was a problem why was it not dealt with ? ~ time is ~ time was ~ times past ~

    Cypres still shows "0" with cutter unplugged.

    This happend to me as well. Mirage G4 with Cypress 2. Countdown was 100% fine, when my rigger opened the rig up for a reserve repack the hard black plastic where the cutter connection starts was broken. Moving it severed the cutter completely and the countdown upon switching on the unit went to 1111 and then switched off. Its a concern. ~ time is ~ time was ~ times past ~

    skydiving with ipod's?

    i do it all the time - only wingsuit jumps or hop and pops - personal choice, dont see anything wrong with it as long as you can hear audibles - i use two set to loud and can hear them VERY clearly under wingsuit. ~ time is ~ time was ~ times past ~

    Birdman no longer flying

    oh totally my own view (from looking around me in formations) sorry i should have added that, - its just makes sense right - made in the US. most skydiver in the US, people know TS and its reputation. No overseas shipping and waiting and time differences and all that crap. for the record I have bought 2 BM suits when i started flying suits, I own PH suits (i love my stealth) and now TS as well. no cares to get involved in a brand war conversation. ~ time is ~ time was ~ times past ~
