  1. I'm currently looking into purchasing a HD cam (Sony HDR CX6) and remember being told a while back that hard drive cams cant be used as it doesn't like altitude or the opening shock. So i was looking at getting a HD Mini DV version. Is this true? As the model i'm after is memory stick, does the opening shock cause any problems? Thanks
  2. I recently jumped a 1000ft with 15(ish)mph winds down the wire, even had a 180, and it was no problem thanks to a decent track coupled with pulling low... But slider down i would of climbed down

    Haha, firstly, when did this turn into a competition?! And yeah i thought that too actually, but its still a nice shot, and went handheld, so holding onto the rail with the other hand doesn't leave me with any spare hands!?

    Heres a nice addition, Swiss Dam...
  10. Check out the BASE dudes website, theres some balloon jumping there...
  11. Yeah, only 1 in 4 apply sounds about right, i remember it being a slight anti-climax upon receiving my BASE number earlier in the year as i knew it didn't really reflect the actual amount of BASE jumpers that completed it before me, and as rough estimates put it to around 5000 jumpers with all 4 objects completed, then it shows that the vast majority are not interested for whatever reasons...
  12. I average 50 mins for my 1000ft, but my firefighter buddy can do it in 20 mins...
  13. *YAWN* Is this you?
  14. Thanks ppl, a friend got back to me and told me he had used a 7 month old stale rig with no problems, which reassured me. As for the PC, i never leave that stowed anyway as to not stretch the pocket, just stow it prior to jumping...
  15. Quick question, due to the majority of my jumps being slider-up, I've not used my slider-down for six months, just wondered what you thought, should i repack? I ask cos reserves are done regularly and i was thinking maybe i should apply that to my BASE rig...? Thanks
