  1. not true. I have travelled Lufthansa, British, Swiss, Easyjet, Iberia with my rig as handluggage. No problem. I can add Ryanair, Adria Airway, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines and Air France to that list. Never had any problems. But I had problems with Lufthansa once, as they only allow 8kg for hand luggage, and the rig with the gear was 10kg. But I managed to talk my way through that.

  3. 5 tandem rigs and one sport parachute was stolen over the weekend in Lesce-Bled, Slovenia. The rigs are all from Strong, please see the attached pictures for colors. I will post more info on the rigs (s/n) as I get it. If anyone has any info on these rigs, please let me know. I would also ask people to repost this in their local sites if it's not too much of a problem. Thank you, Jure
  4. How does the still mode work? Some websites say 1fps is minimum and some say 3fps. It is really important to me, so can somebody check it? Thanks
  5. Anyone tried the new ContourHD GPS for stills yet?

    RW suit

    I'm still deciding, but I'm probably going to go with the Symbiosis suit. Actually got the booties on my current suit fixed for 30€ and I think it will be good for another few months.

    RW suit

    Thank you all for answering. I'm looking for a suit, that I'll use for not so serious competition 4-way and mostly for tunnels. So I'm looking for a suit that is quality built, especially the booties part (had to use miles of duct tape on my current suit to fix the tears). I'm mostly looking at suits made in Europe, as there is no duties and customs. I've seen some symbiosis suit this weekend at the dropzone, so I'm probably going to go with them. A friend has a PIT special, but she is getting some some tears around the booties, so I'm not convinced. Have looked at the skyleno website(despite the google warning) and my antivirus went off, as the site was trying to install some malware.

    RW suit

    I've had my RW suit (specsuit) for some years now, and it's starting to wear out. Now I'm looking for a new suit. Friends have recommended the Parasport suits, but I'm looking at other options. I've been looking at Symbiosis and Rainbow suits. Can anyone recommend any other suits and list some pros and cons about the suits. Are Symbiosis any good? I've been looking at Gear reviews here, but they are all old.
  9. Solt/Paranoia used to have its airplane in Bovec during summer. But their plane crashed in January 2008. So Aviofun took over and they had their porter in Bovec for the first two weeks in August. You can check here for this year:
  10. Me and my friends were in Deland this february, there were around 16 of us and we lived in De Leon Springs. The owner of the house was Denis. Unfortunately we lost all contact information. Does anyone here know him or know about any other accomodation, suitable for around 10 to 20 people? We would be returning in february 2009.
  11. Does anyone know, where to get te replacement pads for the inside of the helmet,as mine don't fit very well (i have medium pads, and would need the L ones). I have tried contacting Paratec, but again they didn't reply...I don't have a fax, so I can't do that also.
  12. So is it possible to order the helmet directly from paratec? I'm also looking for the helmet, and had no luck finding it...
