    In-Flight HUD to Assist Wingsuit Pilots

    Nickelmouse For wing-suit pilots forward speed is more important. 3D speed can be fooled by diving to much. It can make your over all speed seem greater then it really is. If you have horizontal speed mixed with glide it shows real performance gains when flying the wing-suit. So as you start raising your angle of attack you can actually see what is making you fly faster forward. With 3D speed the number could be going up because you are just falling at the ground faster with out really moving forward any faster. There are a lot of wing-suit races coming in the very near future and these HUD gauges are going to be crucial in training for them...

    Jeb, this one is for you

    I think I saw that when i was there. Very cool for what they are doing but kind of a lame base jump. There are way cooler things in that area to jump from :) Jeb

    Jeb Corliss. Here to save the world?

    I haven't seen the article yet but I can already tell a sorry is in order :) I told them I didn't want to talk about it anymore till we had funding. I told them that at this point it is fantasy till we can find a way to fund the project further. I told them I didn't think it fit in with the rest of the people on there list. I told them we were at least a year out from doing it even after we got funding and there was no way of knowing how long that would be. So like I said, I have no idea what they wrote, because I have not read it yet, but I AM SORRY, because I am pretty sure it's lame. Jeb Corliss P.S. Man can get to the moon, but not by flapping his arms and his mouth...
  4. I have to be honest, this is the first post that actually scared me :) Landing is so much easier then everyone thinks. After it is done the first time there is going to be an army of jumper capable of doing it. Its all in the technology and you will be shocked when you see what it is. Before we even land the suit you will look at what we build and say, damn that is so obvious :) It really does make me happy that everyone thinks its so impossible. Its funny how everyone thought it was so impossible to fly before the Right Brothers did it...
