  1. Scott, Congrats on winning the US Performance cup. I used the wintec briefly in 2007 and have the FlySight. now. I used a GPS older than wintec GPS for most of my logging when it was necessary. The Flysight does the same job and makes it worry free for me. If I follow the instructions(turn on 15 mins at start of day, a few mins before boarding the airplane and before exit) the flysight works flawlessly. I only use the FlySight as a passive GPS(no earphones) and still think it is worth it compared to the older units. Kris
  2. +1 I purchased this unit mainly for its GPS module. On the rare occasions I have turned it on, it has worked very well. Much better than the last generation GPSes I own.
  3. Why don't you try asking this question in the BASE forum? Skydivers don't generally use tracking suits. Might get better response there.
  4. man we NEED a change in the discipline... Even CReW have more girls than us.... Pick something other than Skydiving. Anyway, better chance of the few women in the sport showing up at a flock than a comp.
  5. Hey Spot, I am at Elsinore . Spotted you briefly yesterday and then had to leave the DZ to run an errand before I could come say Hi. I will be at the DZ today the whole day if there are others to jump with or at the casino playing poker if there is no jumping. This is awesome...windy at the DZ? The casino is a mile and a half away. Kris
  6. Glide ratio - not pace. 1:1 is a piss-poor glide ratio regardless of pace.
  7. Very impressive! What size suits are you guys(the good company) flying?
  8. Hey Prof, Mutually exclusive goals. Flock leaders have to set a pace that is comfortable for everyone. Kris
  9. Thanks for the tips Butters and Jarno. I just need to put in the jumps. Our DZ has at lot of super solid back flyers and learning this skill allows for lots more types of jumps. Butters, you should see Peter's perspective of the video before calling it 'flat spin'. He is traveling and on vacation so it may be a while before he gets to video editing. Yeah..user error for sure . However, recovery in the V3 was waaaay easier. Anyway, thought it was good entertainment. Maybe also good for showing what happens when no attempts are made to fix it. is the second one.
  10. You have to wait for flysight 4S.
  11. The point is to say that it is not a flatspin. Can't be bothered to fix it though. Spent the word limit on that issue by typing here
  12. Those aren't flat spins, they're tumbles. Sure, did you read what the description says for the first video?
  13. That is so true. The first video is from earlier in the season. The time lost in the first video is because of trying to bALL UP TO FIX THE SPIN. The time lost in the second video was pretty much because I was cursing at myself for screwing up after we discussed what not to do on the ground instead of fixing the issue. Slow recovery trying to 'ball up' 30 secs. Quicker Recovery ..9 secs.
  14. Fantastic!! Macca, it flies like a dream. In flocks as well as on puffy surfing jumps. I will be in the P2 competition class at Lake Elsinore competition. Spot, Looking forward to meeting you.
  15. Thanks. Got no pics of me in the air as usually no one at our dz apart from me flies a camera with a wing suit. I am headed to Lake Elsinore soon so maybe then.
  16. Two things, I am not at work and the second one is fixed ...but the choices are very limited.
  17. I got a surprise past weekend when I reached home on friday and saw a Fedex door tag. Called Fedex and they said its a package from Slovenia. Wow! It was my new P2. I picked it up on my way to the Ballunar flock on Saturday. Thanks Robi and Macca and all of PF. The suit has bigger sturdier zips and a new pattern compared to the other P2s I have seen. There is foam from knee to toe. It makes for a very clean look. I have no good views of it in flight yet.
  18. Very fun weekend. Here is a video of the Sunday morning jump and a couple of jumps we were able to do at space land after the rain passed us by.
  19. Some jumps from last weekend.
  20. Show's over, buddy! Reviews are in and they aren't good.
  21. 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
