    Føniks

    Its a small skydiving club, non-commercial, driven by people who is jumping there. That the reason for very cheap prices. They charge only to make club go around and not to earn money. The club-house is right next to Molde Airport, which they use for jumping. On weekends there only 2-4 planes a day, that use it, so they have whole airport for them self. HUGE landing area (about 1.5 km long and 500m wide), impossible to miss. People are super friendly and nice, trying to do their utmost best to make you feel welcome and home from the minuet you get there. Most of them jump RW (FS), but you can find someone to join you for FF, wing-suit or tracking jump. You find people of all level of experience, so there will be always someone to join you. As well, if you pay a bit extra, they can fly you and drop off close to The TrollWall. SuperB experience! Just a must to try! After jumping, there is a good chance to take a beer or two, join people for diner and a night out at Molde to make your experience complete! As well, there is tons of places to BASE jump and many experienced people, who will help you. If you are somewhere close and want to have amazing jump, that the right place!

    Billvon Canopy checklist?

    I agree with last post. Start with less then 90*. And start higher. Start even at 300feet, then at 200, 150, 100, 75, and after couple jumps you doing it at 50feet. Just take it easy and slow., Most important that you feel you self safty enought to do it Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Springo 140

    I have only few jumps on springo. As I remember, i had yo flare realy quick. But find some videos in internet of landings with springo, or even better take a canopy curse, cause you should be able to find out this kind of stuff on your own, otherwise this canopy may be too danger for you, IMO. Pilot, sabre2, safire2 is awesome canopys btw! Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Swooping with Crossfire

    Learn to use harnes. As lond as you use harnes correctly, you dont need to pull brakes or anything else. I jumped some om them with 1.2 in wongload, and in swoops realy well! As lond as you use harnes:) Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Landing with double fronts

    I dont see anything wrong with doing double front on that point. Just remember to let them go before you get to te ground. Take a realy good time, and learn how canopy recover in different speed and wind cond. Use 50-100 jumps for it, before you start on 45*. When you learn 45* realy well, go for 90* and so on. But take your time to learn before starting on turns/longer turns. Blue skys and soft landings to all!
  8. Well, for sure new more modern gear is a lot safyer, more comfy and much better. What you will go for, a bmw from 1980 or brand new bmw? Is exatly the same in skydiving... Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Is Psycho Pack the way to go???

    I had a Safire2, and psycho packed it. Worked realy greate. But its a recomendet packing method by Icarus. Also tryid psychopack triathlon and Sabre 1, work realy greate. When I pshychopacked Spectre, owner said its streamd too long time. Also tryid psychopack on crossfire2 99, and i didnt work realy well... got 1 twist, but I dont wanna try it more:) Blue skys and soft landings to all!
  10. First of all, katana@1.4 is maybe to low wingload. By changing a canopy to Springo or something in that class, you can get much more out of it. For the second, try Crossfire2. Sorry for litle offpost:) Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Wing Load too high?

    !.3 with 200 jumps is fine wingload. But you should look back on you last 100 jumps, and ask you self how well it worked out. If you had any kind of problem landing Safire2, you should maybe thing of upsize. Or just to get you self together, and start acting like it your first ride on that canopy. But for thats questions you have instructors, ask them. They see how you fly and land. Course can also help you. Blue skys and soft landings to all!
  12. I will recomend you to test a Safire2. I was very sure to go for a Sabre2, before I got one ride on Safire2. But anyway. I dont think you need less wingload then 1.-1,1, but you have consider how high your dropzone is, wind conditions, how careful you are on turns, espesialy low turns (I never turn lower then 200 foot, unless I practise flatturns) how good you on flare. How can you land in downwind, crosswind, tyrbulens, and stuff like that. Ask you instructor, people who see how you fly. They can tell you much better what you need. Ask you self how careful and good you are with canopy. And be very very hard on you self with ansver! From 1 till 10. If you get 9 or 10, you can load 1.2 with no problem. if you get 7-8, go for 1.1, 5-6 under 1. If you get 1-2-3 you should considering to giveup skydiving:) Also, if you can feel differents (opening, flying, glide ratio, respons on toggles, flare) on chutes after jump 1-2 times with it, from another simular one, you are good. If not, dont wingload it more then 1.1 But speak with your instructors, and get a ride on Safire2. Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Bottom End of Swoop

    I have tryid different Crossfire, wingloaded from 1.3 till 1.6, and I think its perform much better on higher windload. It was no problem to fly it on 1.3, but it respons better (not only quicker, but better), I find it easyer to flare perfect on straight forward fly (with no front risers). So imho, its for a reason why Icarus recommend to load it at 1.4-2.1. And since you brought ferrari in hear. Take a testarosa, and drive in small roads with lot of turns, in around 150km/h. I promise you, you will love it! And now go to nearest small town, with small roads as well, and drive there, try to "side park" between 2 cars, turn around maybe... You know what you find out? Its a lot better with a ford focus for that! Velo dont made to be loaded at 1.3, it will fly, but a sabre loaded at 1.3 will do it lot better. Don you agree? Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    ground lanuching a Reserve??

    Be sure you know ur chute really well, and its no crosswind. I tryid ground lanuching last winter with Safire2 169. On first attempt I didnt managed to get my canopy up till allmost i was down, and ended with skiing with my chute upon me:) On second I had amazing fly, most fun I ever had under the canopy. On the last attempt I got some nasty crosswind, my chute got to the side, twisted couple times and started dragging me to the side. I waited till I allmost got to the trees and cutaway. So I didnt hurt me at all, and my chute was totally find. But it was on the snow... I hope it can help you in someway. Just be careful man! Blue skys and soft landings to all!

    Altitrack

    Really great thing! Yes, it maybe a bit more expansive then other altimeters, but you get lot more then you pay for. For the first its very great accuracy, since its digital. But since it have a analog display, so it very easy to read. It have a clear and great display. Also I like very nice background light. Very great for night jumping! Also its have a logbook with lot of data. Exit alti, deploy alti, max/min/avg speed, ff time and much more! Only thing I dont like is that I have to buy very expensive software to get my logs over to PC. Otherwise Im super happy with it and highly recomend it for everyone! Cannot enter negative DZ offset
