    Point Break

    Meh... I found the BASE/skydivingscens the least impressive. What was it 3 minutes of video to fly through the crack?

    Safety in the Sky: A Skydiver’s Defense

    "An AAD is a small, technically advanced device used to automatically open a skydiver’s reserve parachute." The AAD does not open the reserve, it may open the reserve container. There is no guarantee that it will open the container that's why I say "it may open".
  3. The canopy turns quicker than your body. You can do that on most canopies, I have managed to do it with a 230. One thing you can do to prevent it is to pull down the slider and open up your cheststrap. That makes your risers spread out from your shoulders instead of going straight up from your shoulders. When the risers are spread out it is much harder to get in to linetwists the way you did. Read up on what loosening the cheststrap and pulling down the slider does and how it effects you and your canopydrills when canopy is open. And what it does to your EP. Then talk to a instructor on your DZ.

    Looking for video of bad student exits/pulls

    Just remember to have correct lenght velcro. When we had SL we had one that was a little bit shorter. As long as we had the spring PCs it was never a problem. But on the first jump with throw away and that little shorter velcro the student got freefall

    NEW GPS Tracker

    Looks nice but to many cons Needs a subscription Uses their server (if they go out of buissiness, it's worth nothing) Cost is quite high for what it is (a GPS tracker), but it is very customized though. The GPSes I use to build the same costs about $40 and no subscription or server. But I'm still having smal issues that needs to be fixed

    Snagless GoPro helmet

    Looks nice. But I'm not sure I would buy one as you limit yourself to one camera. Now that GoPro just released a new and smaler cam, this helmet is already 'old'. But if the top part would be sold seperatly it can be interesting. Angles are also impossible (I guess) to set.
  7. One that is from this year http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4697392#4697392

    cheap new gopro

    You can't take out the battery on that model? What are you going to do when it freezes up?
  9. Make one yourself, and you can have whatever colour you want and how long you want/need it to be. I made one of type 8 as the sliderstowing part and type 4 around the reserve closing flap, and a tiny bit of type 17 as the "flap" to grab the sliderstow. (Not that it's needed but all stows have one)

    Anybody Own This?

    Googling on the owners name as the seller says shows this: https://www.google.se/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=thomas%20huf It might be as he says. But I'm not sure about zero jumps on the Cypres

    Flight Data Tracking App

    The GPS in a phone is generally rubbish. Some time ago someone posted a GPS track from his phone and it looked awful, and the "landing" was ~100 ft in the air. My advice is to get a device built for tracking skydivers. Or a external GPS device for your phone, not sure it will work as good as FlySight but it will be better than built in GPS.

    skyhook incorrectly assembled ?

    I think your friend needs to read the manual. It will most likely answer his and your question. However, no the main and freebag will not always be connected. If the reserve PC is stronger than the mains drag then the skyhook will unhook itself.

    PD Storm

    Why do you want a higher speed when you are unzippin, stowing slider, adjusting cheststrap etc.? Learn to make harness turns instead while the brakes are set.
  15. Canopies respond different when brakes are set. You should practice using risers when brakes are set. I usually just make a harness turn, but then again my canopy rarely opens off heading, Did you perhaps by mistake free one of the brakes?
