    ProTrack SLO mode - Use it for non-wingsuit too?

    I leave my pro-track on slo mode for all jumps. I also jump a Neptune at the same time. This lets me compare the two. I have known for years that I would not put money on anyting a protrack says, It is an excellent product- but it is a tool not a scientific fact. I have compared protracks on the same freefly skydive and find as much as 10% descrepancies. Both were not in slow mode. Anyway blue skies and safe landings Cancer Chris

    Custom GPS System for Wingsuits

    I am interested in top mounting something for some time. I looked a Garmin I think the brand name is . well The thought of holding my head out the door of 10 sec. pre-exit to insure signal very fun. I keep asking myself what the value of the data might be. verses spending 300-500 bucks. I am interested but not ready to throw money away. Think about how you mark way-points and is it possible to reach the G.P.S. buttons in the suit. Enough said there is a lot to think about. Cancer Chris

    Re: [billvon] Close call; no leg straps

    The people with more experience with the suits. and certainly a BMI. should always take that command role and check over novice people. There is a lot of intergration between suit and rig. I always teach leg straps first. Or, maybe Birdman could get a TSO rating. Ha Ha. Cancer Chris

    Hello, I enjoyed reading your posts. My impresssion is BASE is NOT skydiving it is cheating death. I have a few Birdman jumps. I am more intrested with the "swoop" what I call it. Moving speeds both vertical/ horizontal to put you where you want to be. Ifyou have any thoughts on this topic I am all ears. Your Friend Cancer Chris

    LOW pull in slovenia

    Hey, Good to hear from you . Thanks, I am day/ day when it comes to skydiving. I will be in Rantoul this year. I have made about 23 jumps since my bone marrow transplant 3/11/04. I made a jump with some guy with 15 birdman jumps. I made some errors. Bottom line he lands on D.Z. I land off and PLF on some road. Ouch road rash but healed already. It is a longer story but my healing was a good indicator of how my immune system doing so well. Anyway, good to hear from you hope you will be in Rantoul, but maybe I could come to Deland for some fun let me know if you have anything going on this summer, Z-hills is cool as well.

    Was my first jump experience normal?

    Hello, Congrats on your jump. If your get into the sport your "eyes" will open to time distortion due to adrenaline,hypoxia, ect. get two hundred jumps and try bridman. You can notice time distortion more. Your Friend Cancer Chris
