  1. Overkill is underrated I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense. -David Thorne
  2. In my experience most GPSs fail to lock signal in aircraft (unless you just happen to sit next to the pilot on each jump, sticking your GPS far under windscreen) and only acquire it when you open your canopy (clear view of sky + almost no speed). SOmetimes you even have to wait until you land to get a signal. If this 30$ GPS works for that will be great, but IMHO you will have spent 30$ for no effect, so spending 250$ on flysight and knowing it will work is much cheaper. But then again, do you really need a GPS on your jumps? I understand the need for conformity.

  3. So, he sent you a link to the page you needed. I'm confused about why you're unhappy. You must have problems with reading comprehension or something... Or maybe you just need to try harder. Please read my post again, this time a bit slower. If you still don't get it (might be my fault, english is not my first language), let me know and I'll try to explain it to you, so you won't be confused anymore. I'm sure he has. I'm also sure he read the thread and saw that the problem has been solved, therefore no action from his side is necessary. It just sucks I had to find solution on forums, instead of getting support for paid product. I understand the need for conformity.

  4. Yes, problem was solved, thanks to a friendly posted on this forum. I also wrote that Klaus did his very best in supporting his SW until now. His latest replies (or lack of them) were unprofessional. I also think that your judgement of character is... well... shitty. I remember you being all excited and pleased with how karnage krew guy handheld his business, defending him every chance you got, when people were complaining on this forum about not getting their gear, etc. It turned out he was just a drunk gambler scamming skydivers out of money, so perhaps you're not the greatest reference when it comes to judging characters. I know Klaus is good guy because he has helped me in the past with Paralog problems. His track record however is not an excuse to not even send email with archive link while having time to write me a nice email with links to his FAQ and upgrade pages.

  5. I probably should have searched more to find that link to archive. I also understand he has other things to do apart from supporting his software, but his emails stopped at the exact moment when I asked for installer for older version. Before that he would answer in less than an hour with links to his FAQ and whatnot. I then asked for older version and have not received email since. That was almost one week ago. Which is {gasp} a bit more than one day. In email correspondence I way more polite, because I expected to get support as a paying customer. Only after almost a week of no response from him I decided to post here, because none of my friends had installer (and I did not search his entire website for that link to archive). His support so far has been excellent, but in this case he just bailed out and would not do anything unless I gave him more money (for something I already paid for). This attitude towards paying customers is not cool. I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense. -David Thorne
  6. Thank you!!! I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense. -David Thorne
  7. I recently bought a new computer and wanted to reinstall paralog, but could not register it due to licence limitations. I contacted Klaus about the issues but he only suggested me paying him more money and register version 7.x. When I asked him for installer for version 5.x his support and email stopped completely. Does anyone have a copy of 5.x installer stored somewhere? If so, I'd really appreciate if I can get a copy, because I'd prefer software without stupid FB and twitter bloat in it, and I also have no intention of uploading my jump data into clouds.

  8. What I like about this setup is that you can still lift visor few inches so that if it does fog you can still see where you're going under canopy. I don't like fixed visor fullfaces for this reason. Jarno, do you know if Hayden had a plan how to deal with snagged lines or something similar? Was it all plastic screws or his setup that snag-proof? I understand the need for conformity.

  9. I found this picture of what looks like a cookie G2/G3 with homemade flattop with DSLR and CX style camera mounted. Does anyone know if this thing has some sort of cutaway installed? I really like the idea of having fullface (no frozen face during winter) with video gear, but this one does not look safe. (wingsuit doesn't add to safety either) I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense. -David Thorne
  10. I use glide ratio beeps... It's kinda annoying that GPSs can only track ground speed and not airspeed (having "real" glide ration would be the awsomest thing evar!!), but you can at least get inter-day feedback if you keep the direction of flight constant and wind speed does not change much during the day. Plus I get kinda excited when I make my flysight go silent during WS flight I understand the need for conformity.

  12. Just make sure you don't start reading any of those threads where people debate closing rubber bands size, configuration, line dumps and all sorts of weird events contributed to having bends wrapped once instead of twice. Because you see, here are only 2 bands. Line dump happens on just about every jump, and the sequence of bands letting go of your lines is nonexistent (except for 2 closing bands). So according to rubber band hoaxers this design is the closest thing to having a death wish, yet people (me included) report more consistent, more on-heading openings without slammers (even with my girly pull with wingsuit in full flight). The bset thing about this bag is better openings. Easier packing is just a bonus really I understand the need for conformity.

  13. I just saw that x-shut makes top-mount adapter with screw integrated into the cross. I sent chutingstar an email, I hope they've done it already and will help me with instructions.

  14. Top mount. I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow we would probably all have to resort to common sense. -David Thorne
  15. I used both. First I got me a Wintec because Flysight did not exist yet. The thing was very very bad at acquiring signal inside the plane, that I did not get many useful tracks. Keeping it turned on for the plane ride did not help, turning it on few minutes before exit neither. This was in Turbo Let-410 and Pilatus PC-6. BTW, if anyone wants to buy wintec, contact me When Flysight appeared I got one. This thing will find signal anywhere, anytime. Hot start is usually only few seconds, sometimes it needs up to 20s if the unit is far from windows (inside a metal plane). I _always_ had signal before exit with Flysight. Audio feedback in air is also pretty cool and I think it has helped me with my performance. I use earphones at the moment but will install low profile speakers inside of my helmet just to eliminate fiddling with the wires. Plus if you don't have anyone to jump with then the audio feedback is about the only objective info about your performance that you have at your disposal. Flysight wins even without audio feedback (with feedback it has no competition). I understand the need for conformity.
