  1. Hi all! We continue to experiment with parachutes that are the least suitable for wingsuits. It was famous in our area old cutaway-likely "Heatwave-135" vs. our A.R.C.S.-Drive...
  2. We lock the line by the textile rubbers and the tip of the loop by the lower tongue of the toggle
  3. An alternative design of the RDS, its "fully rigid, but with a safety protection system". Combines the advantages of totally-rigid locks (as Icarus), and easy-moveable rings (as PD/Fluid etc) - but eliminates their disadvantages. u-pushino.mp4 u-pushino1.mp4
  4. (Semi)crossbraced design for all canopy product line - that’s one small step for maker, but one giant leap for mankind.
  5. We experimented with protectors with rubber like these for tandem harness, and it turned out to be a bad design. And decided to continue with the monolithic butt pad included non-Newtonian gel.
  6. Hello! We continue the "pilot operation", and we like it more and more. This is quite convenient, is no design change, only a little in the materials. I wrote about winter usage and caution with releases above.
  7. 1-29 round 30-150 mostly 220 accurance 75 - 135 square 90 - 120 ellipse 107 - 120 crossbraced 180 - hard injured by 220. 240 - mostly 115 crossbraced, jumps + ground launches 800 - mostly 89 crossbraced I was really afraid of soft parachutes with low wingload.
  8. Qualification ofference for the "E" license: - "D"-license at least 3 years, and 5 "D"-license holders who recognize the applicant as a guru. - Combo: 3 TM jumps + 3 jumps as operator + 3 jumps as FF instructor + 3 jumps as AFF instructor or more in one day. - One of the following: rigging in an airplane during a climb; 10 naked jumps, including in an area with cacti; 10 jumps in a large wingsuit with a crossbraced parachute at WL 3+; Eat a live bat.
  9. Hi Rob! Like any equipment, located near cutaway/reserve releases, the belly-band with integrated pocket requires increased attention in highspeed jumps of course. Other than the one mentioned earlier, it can fill and vibrate in the flow, loosening tension in connection tapes with hardware, and it can also contain magnets and velcro in the flap (we did not consider zippers, they are useless for winter).
  10. Reasonable questions.The pocket is made as part of a protective cover for harness tapes, and the outside skin is cordura. this will prolong the operation of the rig, and maybe even the butt ) Belly band is not universal solution, and is potentially dangerous in jumping freefly, etc. The pocket on the leg reduces the risk of involuntary cutaway, or pull out reserve by hooking cushion by the RDS release cords loop. like it made swoop shorts, but for winter jumps, naked jumps etc. too. Belly band with a pocket are made by some manufacturers, we wanted to try something new.
  11. Oscillating (not rotary) hook machine produces the highest quality seam and do not twist the thread, but have a horizontal axis of hook, and mostly primitive fabric transporting mechanism. High speed sewing is not the top priority for intricate designs with high precision, and repair, for my opinion.
  12. One of the successful experiments of 2019, In our opinion. Are we right? Its stretchable.
  13. To slow down sewing and control the needle, and for more torque too, we make gearboxes out of cheap components like this one. Total conversion ~ 6:1 Its nice sewing...
  14. More reserve deployments with full RDS:
  15. No, of course not, because slider is part of the Deployment system.
