    Javelin Odyssey

    All I can say is thank you sunpath! My rig is awesome, fits great, flies great and looks kick ass! I know the Odyssey is not the cheapest rig around but all I can say is you get what you pay for. To the rubbish about not being freefly friendly all I can say is put the right canopy in it! Choice of Champions indeed.

    it usually depends what time of year you ordered your rig. it would help to know when did you send in your order and what delivery time were you quoted? blue skies, Everyone makes mistakes, just dont let them be your last.

    Main Lines Entangling With Flaps

    hey, many thanks for that, its very descriptive. I have read everyones response and really like the idea of reducing the amount of unstowed line to a minimum. One question I do however have is once you have made your final loop (1/2 width of the D-Bag - step 4 in your instructions) you tuck the remaining loop underneath all the lines groups. One potential problem I see with this is that while this loop is being extracted at a 90 degree angle to the D-Bag during deployment there will be some force on all the line groups. If this force was enough to unstow any of the line groups you could end up with not only an out of sequence deployment but also a potential line dump. What are everyones thoughts on this analysis?

    out of interested the thing that comes to mind with this split stowing method is the chance of the loop locking off over another stow during & preventing deployment. have you considered this and if so what conclusions did you reach?

    Neptune flatline during swoop

    Hey Guys, i am jumping a pilot 150 loaded at around 1.2 and the other day while practicising my 180 swoops my neptune flatlined. After reading the manual I have noticed that it says this may happen, what it doesnt do is give the speed you need to be doing in the swoop (without swoop mode enabled) in order for the dytter to flatline. Could anyone tell me that speed? Cheers
