    135lbs + X2 = FUN!

    Do it and let us know. Only other really light person I know is Rob H from Z hills. AFAIK he got his Xbird recently. Unless you plan on doing solos ONLY or plan on gaining a 100lbs , don't sell your small suit.

    Nice video! I did 16 jumps at my home DZ this year....Mike and Brian did a few more. Got some video connection is slow from here....will upload in a couple of days and it will be a very basic edit.

    wingsuit FA!L

    I already posted it in the V4 thread. I would consider changing the thread title. This is an isolated incident and does not affect skydivers much. Just saying coz it might be considered flame bait...

    V4 lead time note from another thread P.S: Hope you are doing well, Paul.
  7. There have been nice puffy white(don't like the grey ones) clouds quite often. Even though we cannot make any promises about those , this is a fun place to jump with excellent facilities . Here is the sunset jump from yesterday. Forward to the very end. I edited out the sound. closing speed

    Scotch Guard a wingsuit?

    Yup, first you post a pic at work then you scotch guard and then you jump it . yes, Scott Bland used to swear by it. Scotch Guarding that is. I have done it. Just forgot about it....will do it for the new ones when they get here.

    German/World Cup Gransee

    Congrats to the winners!! Any theory as to why Benedikt Klees performance gets better in the second round when everyone's performance drops horribly? Kris
  14. I think most people that have followed this news item have read most of it, but the article is still interesting to read. Funny, I don't see this item in my news. Maybe its because you stay in the same area? I am in the U.K.

    D-Bag Mod for WS

    Sounds like a good idea. My Mirage G4, long bridle PC and open corners has worked just fine for me. Definitely interested in hearing what the wingsuit community has to say.

    Increasing the Popularity of Wingsuits

    I have a different opinion on some of your suggestions. I think the wingsuit discipline is a long way ahead of the point where we need to hold a "Discover wingsuiting" boogie. In 2004, even a big place like SDC had very few wingsuit pilots. Go there today and you'll probably find a few people flying a wingsuit on each load. I think that wingsuits are gaining in popularity and every big dropzone has a few demo wingsuits/tracking gear etc. Competition between manufacturers has resulted in a better product for the consumer.

    To Robbie...

    Just a friendly little video, eh! . In the blue corner we have.... and in the red corner... Nice to have a first look at the Asylum profile. Have always liked Marty's work. This market is exploding! Kris

    Question to SFly owners/ jumpers

    I am 6'2" and have owned an S-FLy expert. L is the more appropriate size for us. No problems, reaching the cutaway, etc. I know what you are saying about the M+ as I tried it in DeLand in 2004 when Loic was there.

    Porter - Wingsuit A2A

    That's a nice picture. Interested in seeing the unedited version just to get an idea of where the plane was.

    V3 video online

    Nice video. I was instantly overcome by desire to order one until I checked my bank balance and realized it converted to like 2 euros .

    3 minute flight

    Kinda like Usain Bolt managed to win the 100m . Sounds more like you'll do a 3mins every time you solo and can be bothered to max out. Kris

    Opinions Etrex Vista HCX GPS for WS?

    Too big I have a GPSMAP 76CSX and planned to use it with a remote antenna (glued to helmet) and use it for genral trekking. It works great for trekking but simply not worth the effort for wing suits IMO. I used an Edge 305/205 and they worked well for me. Also used one of the foretrex units...and the WBT 201 units. My favorite GPS unit for wingsuit use is the edge. Kris

    The Shadow - review

    Thanks for the information. With a name like Shadow, I am guessing it is a proximity flying suit. I notice that the X bracing is gone from the legwing inlet. Interesting. Kris.
