  5. I remember the Jonathan opens quite fast.
  6. In 2012 I bought a Nova 120 (DOM 1992) on ebay. It was like new, probably 10 jumps on it when it was grounded and never jumped again. I did a few jumps with it without an issue. As far as I remember I gave it to Brian Vacher from PDFT afterwards.
  7. I had a few spinning malfunctions where I did not get stable after cutting away (no RSL, velo, WL 2.5). I have video of one of the cutaways where I deploy on my back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LE4Hzrx8Q4U My personal reason for not getting stable first and then deploying the reserve is that I believe it could easily take about 2000ft to get stable first, (which in combination with a jump from an altitude of 3000-4000ft which I often do seems too much) To develop a habbit of getting stable first is something I don't want to become part of my reserve procedure. http://www.dropzone.com/safety/Gear_and_Equipment/Top_5_RSL_myths_18.html
  8. opens like a VK as well. My VK RDS works great with the X-Fire.
  9. I jumped a thunderbow last year. It hurts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oK8JBm7vswA
  10. I jumped there in 2006. The Tokyo Skydiving club is located at the Honda Airport about 2-3 hours outside of Tokyo (train and bus). One ticket (credit cards where not accepted, cash only) was about 60$. They had a Cessna 208 at that time which could carry 8 skydivers only, because seats had to be installed for some reason. There were tandem instructors from Europe, so you could speak english and also the national 4-way teams (which usually train in the US) spoke english. You had to apply for a temporary japanese parachute associations membership in advance (50$). It was in 2006, I had no smartphone and it was quite hard to make the way back to Tokyo, because in that area all bus timetables, etc. were in japanese language only, and most of the locals do not speak english at all. I was there because a friend got married to a japanese girl, and had let him do the paperwork in advance. If you need any help, let me know, I could ask my japanese speaking friend to call the dropzone for details.

  12. Here is a picture of my Thunderball(#10) I jumped once again on the Pops meet last weekend. I had never looked up the patterns name until I found this discussion about this topic. I uploaded the video as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YvsuEJEY1w

  18. I was just about to make the payments when I had a little problem with the Picking-Up Agent of the PD Vengeance 120 ,Has i explained to you earlier that I am currently on sea and I am buying the PD Vengeance 120 for my dad,I tried to book a Pick-up with my shipping agent,But they asked me to Pay first before they can made the Booking, and they only Accept Western Union Money Transfer for their payment's and they don't accept PayPal or bank Transfer and I tried to send the Money Online but i could not and I am on sea and there is no way i can find a Western Union Agent to make the transfer to my Pick-up agent,So i wanted to ask if it was okay for me to include my Pick-up agent's fees in the payment's I am about to send through PayPal,my pick up agent charged is €210 plus Insurance and some other document for the pick-up,please can i include their money in the payments I want to send then after i have made the payments you will help me forward the €210 to my pick up agent through Western Union Money Transfer,this I would have done myself and not bother you but for the fact that I am currently on sea, so after I have made the payments you will help me send €210 to my pick up agent through western union money transfer,I just wanted to seek your consent before going ahead with the payments,I will more than appreciate if you mail me back, and I will be made the payments shortly......Awaiting your response soonest PS:the shipping company's Head quarters is in England and any pick up fees to be paid is sent to their head quarters by the payee, so the money for pick up will be sent to their head quarters in England through western union money transfer(this can be done from any post office) or you can do it online at www.westernunion.com Regards.
  19. I will add some photos the next days. As I found out my friend had done some research on the origin of this chute. see attached pics.
  20. When cleaning up a (dead) friends closet we found an old pioneer round canopy. He already got in contact with pioneer in 1997, to find out more about the chutes' history. Since I do not know of its origin i would appreciate if anyone has more information on these chutes (see attached text).
