    dz in Brazil please jan feb

    Actually, Boituva is a little trick, it is only one dropzone. One company owns the 4 planes. But there are like 10 schools using these planes in the same dropzone. All of them use the same aircrafts and landing zone.

    It is in Sao Paulo, also the biggest city in Brazil. There are good dropzones in Parana, a state closer to Paraguay.

    Brazil is huge dude! We have 4 turbine dropzones in Brazil, only weekends. The biggest one is Boituva, Sao Paulo, they have 4 Caravans and the best flyers in the country. There is a Dropzone in Manaus and in Boa Vista, in the North of Brazil, both have Caravans in the weekends. My home Dropzone is in Fortaleza, Ceara, and is the only one with a ocean view and has 2 Caravans. Thats it, we have a lot of dropzones, but all of them with little cessnas.

    Contour HD camra box

    I dont have one, i use a cx110 top mounted on the same helmet you have. I think top mount its safer regarding Riser slaps and those mounts look really good and low profile. The horizontal one will fit on the flat top of your helmet and it will still have some room left. If you are not secure about it, send them a email and ask the dimensions of the mount and compare it with your helmet. Blue ones!

    Contour HD camra box

  9. I see, i think this post might help you out... http://www.dropzone.com/forum/Skydiving_Disciplines_C3/Photography_and_Video_F7/CAM_eye_LANC_to_half-moon_conversion_P3881040/

    CX-150 and box or cage selection

    If you are going to Top Mount it, i would go with the RAWA box for the CX110/150, its the only one i think that the Hypeye a/v conector stays inside the box, that way it is more protected than on the outside like the other boxes around. The RAWA box for the cx110/150 works top mounted on any helmet with a flat top.
  12. Hi DSE, i mind a wireless remote controler, so i can turn on, record etc with a remote controller in my hand Blue ones! :)
  13. Hello, i tried the search here and google, but did not find anything. I heard that some skydivers are starting to use a wireless remote control to use on the sony hdr cx series, as an alternative for the hypeye. Anyone knows anything about this? I know drift action camera has one. The hypeye is great, but i would like to know if there is an alternative.

    OURAGAN vs LIQUID SKY camerasuit

    I will try to help... Since you live near Miami, i guess is much easier to buy a LS suit. Ouragan has the same quality, but the delivery times are longer, they are located in Canada now and the costumer service does not get near that Liquid Sky provides. You will be happy with both, but i would go with a Liquidsky suit for the reasons listed above!

    Chasing your student into the ground!?!

    I personally know 2 jumpers whom had cypress fire and both said they were aware and waited for the cypress to fire their reserve. They locked, just locked in belly position. One tried 2 times to deploy the main and freeze in position and the other had a hard time to extract the pilot chute and waited for the cypress, no intention whatsoever to deploy the reserve. Both of them had more than 100 jumps when it happened.
