  2. Thanks DSE.. I had also in my mind to buy a N3 for its low profile and add it on my wrist...but now i prefer to spend the money to buy a flysight.:-)) If the weather is good i will do some jumps and I will report back. Thank you guys.
  3. Thanks.!! It looks fine.! I will try to mount it there next time and see the results.
  4. If it is not a problem for you....Can you please upload this picture to check it..? I have over 2 months to receive the parachutist..:-((((( Next time i will try it on my wrist and i will see the results. Thank you for your replies.
  5. I have both settings enabled..:-( The only thing that I am thinking is that I must did a GOOD job.. :-p I was my first jump with the S,I did some practice pulls and I was a little unstable after the pulls.I remember I was stable around 8000-9000...and the altitrack records opening at 7890.. So I supposed I had a very slow fall rate and confused the altitrack..? Another thing is the position of the alti..I have it on my left mudflap.. Is it matters?? Comparing to the wrist.? But again I NEVER HAD any issues before.
  6. Yeah I've heard that before about the 3 mins flights..:-)))But i supposed it will take me some jumps to achieve that..It is my first "triwing" suit..I was a S-fly "fan".. I hope the weather will be good next weekend..:-)
  7. Flysight is my in my future "plans" as right now Tony took my last savings..:-)))) I am curious about flight data because time is not the most important weekend I will put on my camera to check the case if altitrack stops again..I didn't want to have it on my first solo jump with the S-bird Thanks for the answers.:-)
  8. Hello there.! This week just received my new "toy" S-bird and this sunday i did only one jump because of very high winds..:-(( I know somewhere in the forum probably will exists the answer but i didn't found any... So,the question is WHY my Altitrack stops at 67 sec and says opening at 7800..?? I disappointed because i wanted to check the time to compare my previous suit and i didn't had a chance to do more jumps to add my camera... The settings is SLOW and SAS... Never had a problem before with my previous suit.. Best time was 141 sec.. Any idea or different settings etc..?? Thank you for your time. ps:By the way..this thing going F.A.S.T ..:-0

  13. Great thanks. I am looking a box for my cx 730 and I can't find anyone else making for this camera.:-). I send another mail and it seems that everything went ok.. Now I am waiting.. Thanks for the replies.:-)
  14. Cool..!! And what about the image quality comparing the two for example Polarized film and with a good expensive glass filter..? B&w,sigma etc...
  15. Does anybody knows how can I contact with these guys.? I send them an email.. but it returns to me..:-( Probably doesn't work.?
  16. First of all you need to buy a spare gopro case (or not)..:-) Then you must order from ebay one( i suggest more..they are very cheap and you will have 2-3 to experiment with ) step up metal ring from 25mm to 55mm. Then unscrew the original plastic lens from the case and with a dremel tool (or similar) oversize the hole to 25mm...or slightly smaller to fit tight the step up ring if you want. After this, make the six holes to the step up ring with the help of the original plastic gopro ring.. and using the original 6 screws install the metal ring on the case.. and you will have a 55mm thread on you gopro case to install any kind of filter you want (polarized,ND,just simple UV etc.).. Unfortunately I did it before 2-3 years and i cant found the photos during the processes. I will upload only a photo of one spare metal ring that i had made.. Also be aware that the case will not be waterproof anymore.. unless you add a O-ring between the metal ring and the case and between the metal ring and the filter..:-) But for skydive works perfect and adds more "live" colors on the footage.!
  17. It is not lens..It is 55mm polarized filter...Custom made by me on the original case..With smaller filter I had black corners....A Bigger one was not 55MM is perfect.. It is very easy to do it..:-)
  18. Thank you for your inputs guys.! Finally I switched back to my old sony cx105..! I bought one cheap from ebay...:-) and I will decide later about the contour or hero3 or replay... Maybe I will wait for some footage from them to compare. Thanks.
  19. Hi there.! I sold my go pro hero2 because I needed the money and now i am thinking to buy again one camera to film my jumps.. The question is which camera from these two are the "best" choice..:-) Almost "everybody" use a,no reviews and opinions for the contour+2.. Any input will be helpful...and maybe a footage from the contour+2..:-) Thanks.
  20. What about the new cx410..or cx430 for US models I think.? It looks a reasonable choice if you don't want to spend money for the cx 730.!
