  1. I read that once Leopard 2 tanks are fueled and armed the weight difference isn't really a issue?
  2. First jump on second hand Havok, in winter gloves. Had previous experience on demo Havok Carve & had been jumping a V4 fairly regularly at time. But first time in own wrist to ankle suit. Exited at 15k and stettled into flight pattern, barrel rolls, slow flight, bit of back fly but stupidly zero practice pulls. 5k orientate myself for pull, around 4.5k shut down wings (didn't keep elbows forward ) grabbed pud but couldn't pull as wing covering, 3 attempts before for silver at 2k ish. Only good thing I did was fly to decent area for free-bag recovery /reserve ride.
  3. I have had hoya polarizing filter on gopro4 black & it takes great stills, never had any issues with it.
  4. Audi, especially the SLine & RS versions.
  5. Lots of different grades of stainless steel (50 I think) some are slightly magnetic, other process can make it more so...wielding etc Had issue with a ebay sellers 'stainless steel ' bumper for my pickup truck which was VERY magnetic , got local scrap yard to gun it with handheld x-ray machine showing it was a cheap chrome iron. Your fridge magnets should not stick on stainless.
  6. Thanks again all. Only have one jump on a demo carve ( suit size probably a little bit to large for me) but really liked it. Super stable & even managed a little back fly + hands free with lots of power.
  7. What's the difference between Havoc & Havoc Carve ??
  8. Ended up ordering Hero4 black, online bike chain (Halfords) doing 15 % off already good price.
  9. Ricoh WG-M1, anybody had experience with this camera ?
  10. Thinking of finally replacing my gopro hd960. I want to shoot lucky dip stills of jumps/fishing/adventures with kids, not really interested in video. 5mp is ok for facebook etc, but once in a while I get a decent pic & wish it was higher quality. Any advise on suitable make/models greatly appreciated. Thinking maybe gopro 3+ silver...]
  11. I struggle to see mudflap alti in factory diver full face.
  12. Had a another issue with my unit, which Michael at Flysight sorted & updated for glide ratio FOC. Great customer service ! Finally got to jump with it on Saturday & it works really well, sadly didn't get any better 2.0 on V4
  13. This Lamborghini Miura & then the AC Cobra.
  14. Grommet to pin seems to work well for me in.
  15. Hi, better start by saying I'm a complete 'puter retard' trying to download new beta update for flysight voice glide ratio. Have managed download zip file & flip 3.4.7 but keep getting error 43 ? I cycle the on off switch 3 times but cannot seem to update drivers to recognise flysight in usb. Windows 8 & moron operating, any ideas
  16. I have jumped with a guy who can regularly get 3.45 from normal altitude in what I think is possibly R bird.
  17. I am no expert, but wingsuits with side inflation in the waist area like Rbirds, Vampires etc are difficult to learn to back fly in. Can fly my shadow stable and fully open, but my V4 attempts are l
  18. The Hawk looks interesting alternative to Havok.

    Your poison

    Ketel One Dutch vodka or Grey Goose & tonic.
  20. Pud, but don't really like it with winter gloves on. VERY secure, I don't tuck tab into pocket as can almost swing container about by pud if tab in its pocket.
  21. Worth watching just to see Paxman squirm when he reminds him his distant Granmother was a brass. (Slang for cheap whore)
