  1. I paid the $40 for a lifetime subscription to PlayLater. Well worth it in my opinion. I don't stream much anymore. Just record it via PlayLater and watch it when (and where, i.e. on my tablet, phone, on a plane...) I want. I mostly record Netflix and Hulu. Hulu is great because then I can fast forward the commercials!
  2. Apparently not a spelling expert. Check the post subject again.
  3. Honestly don't know. I'm a PG pilot now and I fly a DHV 1-2. I used to do a lot of skydiving too. I'm going to be taking PPG lessons myself in December at the ParaToys ranch. I'm sure I'll end up with ParaToys gear. From all my research, it sounds like there really isn't TOO much difference between most of the brands of gear. You like whatever you were trained on. There is no one clear winner or clear, "this is the best". Although, I've heard to stay away from "Super" Dell Schanze.
  4. Simple answer....get a DHV 1-2 rated wing. DHV 1 = Manta, DHV 2+ = Jedi (for PPG at least).
  5. After ~250 jumps I finally did my first tandem (yes for free)...and had my first cutaway too.
  6. Thanks but it'll need to be someone local. It needs to be integrated into my exiting harness which consists of a frame and wheels due to my disability.
  7. Would use a 3-ring release with a protected cutaway handle. See #1 above. I would actually do a d-bag system, not static line. If anything went wrong I'd still have my hand thrown PG reserve. Wouldn't need to cutaway the malfunctioning BASE canopy. I'd want them to release at the same time. Check out this video of a system. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqtC5w4vrZg
  8. I think I heard about your accident. Premature release near the ground after launch, right? Would like to touch base with you to hear what happened and incorporate anything necessary into my design to prevent the same thing.
  9. Because I'm paraplegic and don't skydive any more. I've done this before off a tandem (see attached photo).
  10. I'm looking for someone to build a PG cutaway system. I want to cutaway from my paraglider and static line my BASE canopy off of it. I just don't know any riggers in the Los Angeles area anymore (they've all moved away). Anyone around LA want to give me a hand? Please contact me via PM here. Thanks.
  11. It was a magnitude 3.8. I sleep through those.
