    Performance V3 vs. V4 ?

    Everyone has a different body, skillset and values every .1 GR or mph gained differently against investing in the latest model. So it's quite subjective. If you fly frequently I'd advise yes it's worthwhile for sure.

    Wingsuits BANNED!

    dunno if you're counting my local DZ in that, but here there wasn't even an incident, it was a ban out of the blue. With a WS population of about 10. "The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. " -John Galt from Atlas Shrugged, 1957

    Pressurization

    If the start time is what you're focused on I would venture to guess it depends more on stall speed of the suit than inlet or airlock mechanics. "The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. " -John Galt from Atlas Shrugged, 1957

    V4/V3 zippers

    On my V3 I did break a zipper stop at the proximal (near body) end of an arm zipper by opening too fast/hard. Put zipper back on the track and as a stop used a dab of super glue for both arms, it never happened again. Having parapack instead of nylon as a stop should fix it, but the superglue mod is super-easy. "The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.

    Wingsuit landing next month?

    Sounds neither challenging nor like an actual landing to me, but probably still fun to watch. "The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. " -John Galt from Atlas Shrugged, 1957

    problems flying a v3

    I'd suggest doublecheck what your upper body is doing- that you're spine and shoulders are straight/flat instead of curved/dearched. "The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. " -John Galt from Atlas Shrugged, 1957

    New Need 4 Speed short

    Really neat. In the video before this one I was hoping they'd go down those gulleys, and it turned out really nice.

    wingsuit colors and brand -you.

    Not really. I prefer to distinguish 'Brand-me' by the actual flying of the suit (which is captured better in memories not photos) rather than suit colors. Congrats on having your order accepted.

    The Need 4 Speed: Cruise Control

    The most gratuitous sheer display of WS speedflying I've ever seen. It's hard to say how fast that was...

    V4 vs X2
