  1. I just finished this year's course and can easily say that it was a great experience. There was no militant style of instruction going on whatsoever. "I promise, I will never die."
  2. I have a Velo 103 and a 27 Xaos 98 loaded at about 2.25-2.3. I find that my Velo hunts less than my Xaos. My Xaos does have quicker openings, though. With all the factors involved with the opening sequence on X-braced canopies, I do agree with doing nothing but staying even in the harness, to a point. "If" my canopy decides to take that last ditch hard turn after it inflates, I'm pulling on the opposite riser to steer it back. "I promise, I will never die."
  3. Oh, and I returned all the handles. I think the DZO's were more happy about that than the fact I survived. "I promise, I will never die."
  4. You didn't try hard enough to clear the tension knot. You just got scared. That's what your packer told me He's right. I do get scared easy. "I promise, I will never die."
  5. I like the GE products on the Viper. "I promise, I will never die."
  6. Strong. RSL. No Skyhook. No stability problems. "I promise, I will never die."
  7. I would throw this example in just for thought. Say you go into a level of windshear where you get a -15mph change in windspeed (BTW, this happens in a lot of landing areas surrounded by trees). The canopy is going to surge forward to get back it's flying airspeed. Would you want to be in brakes when this happens? Personally, I want my canopy pressurized and fast so I can easily compensate for that change by exchanging speed for lift. Also, with the canopy being pressurized, there is less of a chance of it folding up. "I promise, I will never die."
  8. Tension knots on the left side. Acted like a really bad end cell closure. Tried to clear, couldn't. Cutaway. Lived. Beer! "I promise, I will never die."
  9. Quite the wingloading you've got there! Oops! 1.5 "I promise, I will never die."
  10. My wingsuit canopy is a Stiletto 150 at 1:5 (no cutaways, yet). However, I am experienced and have a stable body position at deployment. Load up a Stiletto anymore, like most canopies, and I think your odds of a cutaway will go up. "I promise, I will never die."
  11. Nice "I promise, I will never die."
  12. Bump. Lets see some more pics. "I promise, I will never die."
  13. Traditional Air Guard pilot and Netjets pilot. I have my Tandem, S/L, and IAD ratings. Thought about getting AFF certified, but it just isn't popular around my area. "I promise, I will never die."
