  1. Do you want a tunnel with coaching on site or close by also?
  2. Check Elsinore, I hear they do them more often.
  3. Wondering if anyone use a container with dynamic/ wingsuit corners for CRW and if they have any benefit or are worth the extra price.
  4. I jump a type C Eclipse. I bought it with a skymaster 170 and a tempo 150 reserve in it. The reserve is still there. Back when I was still a free faller in addition to the 170 I jumped a tri 150 and a omni 135 at various times. Currently I can get my lightning 143 completely in it and can use a 160 with a bit exposed but those are CRW canopies is doesn't have to look pretty and only has to stay closed for 2 seconds.
  5. Is there a container company that has the best padding? More durable) comfortable and stands up to compression than the others. Or do they all use the same stuff?
  6. How many jumps are on the current line sets of the canopies you're jumping? Might want to have a rigger check the line trim.
  7. Actually there are lots of options for post AFF continued learning in any discipline. Wind tunnels have free fly/ RW flight progressions, many DZs have mentor programs or skills camps and organizers that work with newer jumpers, there are canopy control, wingsuit, and CRW courses/ coaches, and there's even experienced jumpers that still pay their knowledge forward old school style. It is up to the individual jumper to pursue and take advantage of these continuing education avenues.
  8. The only options I want are hip rings and padding. I know dealer discount % is a secret but is it still possible to get a new container for under 2 grand. Not having much luck staying under this amount looking in the used market. And the new stock rigs on manufacturer sites are loaded up with options I don't want or need that puts them out of my price range.
  9. It's a nice idea for taking a single person up. However skydivers like to jump in groups so we can build formations as we come down. And pretty much all DZs rely on flying tandems to really pay the bills.
  10. When becoming a CRW dawg I learned: How to change/ swap out- canopies, risers, toggles, pilot chutes, bridals and closing loops. Also how to- inspect a canopy and rig, lengthen brake lines with the toggle knot, add/ remove links from the rears and other non sewing mods to risers to make them easier to grab and fly with.
  11. The neutral (no inputs) mode of flight of any canopy is the suspended weight (the jumper) under the center of the canopy. After any input/ turn be it toggle, riser or harness. The canopy wants to return to it's neutral flight mode and the path the suspended weight follows is the recovery arc. Swoopers take advantage of the recovery arc to do their thing.
  12. I have a buddy that shoots lots of CRW with that camera and a 16mm lens His settings base line is: ISO bracketed 1-800, f 5.6, shutter speed 400-800 depending on light. He'll make adjustment from there if needed
  13. Skydiving is a very in person activity. Why not go out to the dropzone you're thinking about training at just to observe and ask questions. Jumpers love to talk about jumping. Another option would be to see if they have a FB group, lots of DZs do. And post some question there.
