  1. ...and what exactly are you looking for someone to say????? You do realize that UPT is involved, right? You do relaaize if there was a major flaw in the equipment that needed to be addressed so urgently as to prevent another accident like this from happening you would have heard about it by now? PLease....what answers are you looking for and what do you want to hear from the FAA and the USPA??? It seems like you are demanding answers without posing an actual question.....You are also doing this on DZ.com....Maybe try calling your regional representative and UPT and see what they have to say about but complaining about it on dropzone.com isn't really going to get you the answers you are seemingly so desperate for. I'm sorry
  2. To me that's "Skydive 101". I was taught to always turn your rig towards the inside of the plane. ITs part of protecting your pins/gear.
  3. what exactly are you trying to do?
  4. .........yeah dude.....totally works....... just curious, what kinds of trouble do you think it could cause?
  5. cool cool.. Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware there was an older generation of them. Either way, I replaced them with PD reserve S-links.
  6. thanks....I guess I should have included a picture to start with.... no markings or anything to identify.... Found a picture of them here: http://sky-shop.eu/icarus-slink-reserve what do you all think?
  7. Hi, Packing up a Nano reserve and it has soft links on it that I can only presume are Icarus soft links as there are no markings. Does anyone have any expereience with these? Are they legal to use on the reserve? Is there any way identify if they are in fact icarus removable soft links? thanks
  8. ....I think it's funny when a DZ increases jump ticket prices for a boogie and then says they will credit your account for any unused tickets but only at the regular jump ticket rate........and yes there was a boogie registration fee. I lost a lot of faith in humanity on that one
  9. I'm up at skydive new England in Lebanon Maine. It's about 1.5 hrs from boston though.
  10. I believe the way PD sets up their dealerships doesn't leave a whole lot of room for discounts. ...but I could be wrong
  11. You would think, but I see fewer and fewer 'professionals' these days.
  12. It is far easier to manage vertical separation than horizontal separation. People under parachute have a duty to pay attention to where everyone is in the sky with them. It is also their responsibility to create their own vertical separation in order to land safely. When groups are at the mercy of FF drift it is not as simple to say, "just leave more time." This has been debated since Freeflying was invented. It has been widely accepted that it is generaly/more often/best practice/to put flat flyers out first followed by freefly. Some places do it differently, yes, but I have yet to hear a decent enough argument to stray from the 'norm' Yeah dude, there are some exceptions but I am speaking generally. and I'm also not talking about moving groups and wingsuits.
  13. ....and what make it not the best system? What system would you say is the best??
  14. sometimes the camera guys want to see themselves. We used to do it for fun a while ago. You can splice the vids together for a different perspective of the skydive. looks like a2g vid set-up.
  15. I'm not sure you can blame the premature deployment on your d-bag. Might want to look into your BOC/bridle protection/closing loop area first.
