Danny I'll be around there on days when I have off from work. Maybe I'll brush the dust off of my wingsuit for a few flocks
  2. I jumped a Quasar once while my rig was up for a repack. After that one jump, I figured it would be more worth my time to go home and watch TV....But hey, look on the bright side, at least your not jumping a Racer
  3. If you freeze the video at about the 29 second mark, you will notice that this is a downwind swoop based off of the flags. Anything will go "fast" and "far" on a downwind swoop without much effort. Edit to add: But I'm sure you already knew that, Sangi
  4. When I got this in the mail, I called up the USPA and asked them if there was an opt out option for this kind of mail. The guy I talked to said no, but they were asked the same question by many other members and are looking into the possibility of creating an opt out list. I personally hate getting this type of mail and can't stand the fact that organizations that I send my money to send my this type of crap in the mail. I have plenty of insurance and don't need any more.
  5. Nope, I like to consider every "Fun Jump" an Unpaid Work Jump.
  6. Come on Stoney, we all know that the picture of the supposed record has to be kept a secret for as long as possible, as per the precedent set last year. It will not be released until an absolute shit storm about it's validity has been played up as much as possible by the organizers. I do think I saw the pic with the grid posted on facebook though, and it looked pretty sweet.
  7. Heres a little more info on it: http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=3725683;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread I also have a lot of friends there, and would greatly appreciate it if someone could shoot me a PM with his name.
  8. Damn, that is pretty scary. Goes to show that the myth of AAD's not being useful in wingsuits is just that... a myth. Glad that the jumper is OK for the most part.
  9. Yeah, it was spot on until a camera man deployed in front of the front line at our break off altitude. I barely missed him by 5 feet to his left, on level with his body..... kinda scary. And part of the reason why I am not very interested in doing anymore bigways.
  10. I haven't heard anything about this, but after last year and some of the shenanigans that went on during break off, I wouldn't doubt that an accident could have occurred. I hope everyone is OK.
  11. I think no one wants to drive you because they don't want to be considered an enabler in your quest to hurt yourself. Sorry dude, truth hurts. PS: I have a Neos 99 that I am trying to sell if your interested
  12. Gary and James, I sent you both a PM about this guy.
  13. I have about 200 jumps on a neos 99 loaded at about 2.0. The openings are nice and soft and on heading. Once I got an RDS for it, the openings were still soft but a little squirley. The performance is great. It dives pretty hard and has a decently long recovery arc. The rears have a lot of power compared to a katana or crossfire. I would say that it is in the same class as a katana as far as being a canopy to transfer you to a crossbrace. I personally believe that it is a much better swooping canopy than a katana because it has more performance and flies closer to a real crossbrace than a katana.
