  1. 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
  2. Hello , How much money is invested to buy the Garmin/software.ect. How much to get involved. I have thought about this some. Just interested Cancer Chris
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  14. Hello, I call it a swoop from fully flexed -100% body and suit performance in a flight mode / Colapse the wings to up to about 80% vertical for five sec. for example and flex to orignal body flex. Even with 120lbs. person and does a "perfect" swooop in the S3-BIRDMAN not able to suvive landing on the ground.
  15. Hello, I live on a D.Z. in Fl. have made over 535 wing suit jumps mostly in an S1(Love my S3). I have a note book of notes on the suits flying ability. Basically it is a wing to weight ratio. Also, what you are trying to do I.E. Max. flight time, Distance; not to mention atmosphere.
  16. Hello, I live on drop zone in Fl. and have made over 535 birdman suit jumps. I have some ideas on flying the suit in general. Maybe we could compare notes sometime?
  17. Hello, I have manifested four times for a ballon jump, just hasn't happened yet. Although I do have seven jumps from a chopper with a S1birdman suit. Well, anyway I will be in Rantoul--Maybe? Cancer Chris
  18. Hello, I am an avid wingsuit flyer CANCER CHRIS-RE: Just recovering from a bone marrow transplant. Your video is stunning it gave me chillie bumps all over. I have over 500 wingsuit jumps. I live on the D.Z. in Fl. There should be a boggie for bird-people.
  19. Use a skyvan load all the old people in first, then pack in the bird-men this will yeild a 30-wayI have no clue as how to get this picture however.
  20. Everybody flies different, so in a wing suit or not, see what instruction has taught you and if it applies then you can plan for better body position etc.
  21. Hey lou, Cancer Chris; Just thought I would drop you a line and see what is up. I am still recovering from the bone marrow transplant last month. After a small case of puenmonia I am back on the road to recovery. I plan to make a jump this week to see just how strong things are I will let you know anything new maybe we can see some bigger flocks this spring. Your Friend Cancer Chris
  22. Hello, My name is Christopher Ware and go by Cancer Chris. I live on the drop zone in Z-Hillls. I do a lot of birdman an would like to see some events count me in let me know what is up and happening.
  23. Cool news about people getting into wing suit flying. I miss it so much, but it should be returning very soon. YOU KNOW BIRD-MAN SEASON: Which is comming up very soon as well. This will include some of the most spectacular clouds on the planet, witht the Florida Sun and fun as a great backdrop for some really cool flights. I hope to see some more people in the bird-man tent--Lets see how big the flocks can be.
  24. Don't be to trying. A sky ball is a tool it shows the diver different things in relationships wiith time and spcaie;
  25. It is sad to say that something that happens in brief period of time. But this adds a thrill that a second is a long amount of time on exit. So much can happen in that brief period of time it is amazing.Quote
