  1. How many idiots can you fit in one plane... What creates lift?? Negative pressure on topside of the wing. Due to the camber on the wing(profile). The camber and solidness of the wing in a suit is maintained by air pressure... This makes the air above the wing travel faster than the one underneath. In the right Angle of attack. This creates a SUCTION FORCE. This is pretty clear when you see the video. It can be compared to a inner wing stall. Its like someone holding on to one wing while the other wing is free. Try that in your hangar, and see what you can do about it.. And even in freefall, the force you will have to struggle with is way beyond what you can handle. Just 20% of lift comes from actually "skipping" on air, rest is from negative pressure -80 % suction.
  2. Use your head buddy, With the right angled ridge and wind speed it is possible. Wing suits can be made with huge cambered wings to get max lift, and very little sink and forward speed. Then it is also possible to land. Its all about the relative speed to the ground.. Wait and see
  3. We are defined as gliders: In flight, a glider has three forces acting on it as compared to the four forces that act on a powered aircraft. Both types of aircraft are subjected to the forces of lift, drag, and weight. The powered aircraft has an engine that generates thrust, while the glider has no thrust. In order for a glider to fly, it must generate lift to oppose its weight. To generate lift, a glider must move through the air. The motion of a glider through the air also generates drag. In a powered aircraft, the thrust from the engine opposes drag, but a glider has no engine to generate thrust. With the drag unopposed, a glider quickly slows down until it can no longer generate enough lift to oppose the weight, and it then falls to earth. - Stalling The wings on a glider have to produce enough lift to balance the weight of the glider. The faster the glider goes the more lift the wings make. If the glider flies fast enough the wings will produce enough lift to keep it in the air. But, the wings and the body of the glider also produce drag, and they produce more drag the faster the glider flies. Since there's no engine on a glider to produce thrust, the glider has to generate speed in some other way. Angling the glider downward, trading altitude for speed, allows the glider to fly fast enough to generate the lift needed to support its weight. (Newton's Third Law of Motion.)
  4. Rip Off?? U mean from NASA?
  5. Get a drink, relax - get laid, have some fun - its Christmas :) Whether you like driving European sport scars or a comfy slow American cruiser, enjoy your holidays! Mahatma
  6. Are you guys horizontally disabled ?
  7. I know something very cool coming out soon.. But Im not telling you... And its neither of the big brands..
  8. You guys are so way of that it is amazing...
  9. I have a Canon HF 100 for sale, cheap... Andreas
  10. I am having trouble with my camera (Canon HF 100) In terminal speed the picture gets all wrinkly and unstable. Tried to seal it completely to get sure no wind gets into it, but even though it was a little bit better, it still is not fine. It has optical image stabilizer. I have one last ting to try after I have sealed it, and that is to turn of the stabilizing assist. I hope it will work... Anybody?
  11. Right know you probably dont understand at all what it takes to fly a wingsuit safely in proximity of an object. You might never understand. How would you train yourself to so? Movies are not reality. A bird dont think, it is. Cliffs dont move, you have to. How? Human flying is aerodynamics, the rules are set. Fly within the limitations. Whats your capability and capasity? Maybe you have a talent for air, maybe not. I am able to fly in proximity to any object because I know my limitations. I know when to steer, when to dive, when to flatten out, when to pull, where I can and can not jump. I can visualize the line, I know where am headed, I know how steep I need to fly, how flat. I know how much power I have or need to do so. I can read the terrain.I know this by doing it over and over again. My body learnes it, it is second nature. I jump, I fly, I dont think, I respond. I can not learn you how, you have to dedicate many years and hiking boots to know. You will lear the basics from the skydives you do, the rest you have to learn by doing what you want to do. Somethings you can not learn quickly, you can not quickly learn how to free solo the El cap. You have to train hard and be dedicated, even then you might never succsed. You might maybe come half way up the wall, but the you fall. You might be so scared youll never do it again. You might get hurt, and paralized. But If you have what it takes in all it forms, you will be able to do it. Then you know what is feels like, then you want to do it again, the you start to enjoy it. It is not a matter of life or death, if you survive it or not. If this is what you think about it, please dont try it. This is a bout controlling yor body in freefall close to objects. It is nothing in the physics saying it is impossible, or even hard, its easy. The hard part is to learn how to master the element. Like the surfer knows the wave, the skier knows the snow, and the rally driver knows the car, you have to know the air. Its learning by doing, like everything else in life. You just have to carefull
  12. Sadly we come from falling to flying, to obviosly falling again.. Why not buy an old ballon suit from the 70`s! It is ridicoulus to watch these bigger and bigger suit pop up. But bigger is better right? Only in America, ha ha I declare war against the monsterfatsuits Wake up people! This is the era of human flying, not fat americans falling in stupid fatsuits! My god..
