    Signaling .....

    I use my turn signal when I can. California traffic, sometimes, you just ave to GO, or they'll never let you over.

    Extra brake line on a PD143R?

    I'm no rigger, but I sure wouldn't want to see that flapping around above/behind me after I just dealt with a malfunction.

    neptunes vibrating?

    I think you accidentally tied your cell phone to your wrist. so, guess that means stop sniffing the glue! I don't think the neptune even has anything in it that could cause it to vibrate? I feel phantom vibrating too, on my leg, near the pocket where I keep my cell phone, I feel it vibrate, even when the phone is not there. It is creepy!

    "Student Status"

    though I am not an instructor, I agree. I get confused when i hear someone say they are off student status, then find out they only have 13 jumps or so. I have 300+ jumps, and I am still a student, but that is a different interpretation, and not the one you are going for*

    Would you be comfortable with this?

    If your not comfortable, then don't do it. Has the instructor that wants to downsize seen you land on any of your previous 4 jumps? Talk to him/her about whey they feel you are ready to downsize to the 190. If it makes you feel more comfortable, talk to the instructors that took you up , on the previous jumps as well. Good luck.

    Performance Designs

    perhaps it is the dropzone you jump at, the region... different regions seem to favor different gear. . PD, has it's name out there, it's been there for a while, and it is proven. Not to mention that they continually strive to improve their products. now, after saying that.. I only have a PDR, my main is Icarus, so don't think I say that only because I use PD.

    “Talk to your instructors”

    well stated, and very good point. . I sometimes advise it, because I know that i am not qualified to answer the questions being asked, and I have learned from my role models that the instructers are the best people in those situations to talk to. Thanks AFFI, you are actually one of my role models, even though I have never met you, or even talked to you, I find your post enlightening and helpful to my own learning.

    canopy size and jumps

    I think more importantly what you are looking for, is wing loading.. so what canopy size, jump numbers, and what the wing loading is.. 169 safire2 302 jumps my wingloading is 1.12 but don't judge what you should be on by what others are on. it is what is best for YOU, and what is safest for YOU that is important.

    Riggers in Los Angeles

    both elsinore and perris skydiving centers have on site riggers available. there are some others as well, but I don't have contacts for Ralph or others i know. edit: StayHigh is working on getting his riggers ticket, I'm sure that he will do it for you.
