    Altimeter Options for Wingsuiting?

    just try and find yourself an N3a. set it to countdown. you'll get audible alerts every 1000 feet. it actually talks to you. ten thousand feet, nine thousand feet, etc you can even record your own .wav sounds for it to play if you want. there is no better option.

    Cookie G4

    Not that I disagree, but you can remedy most of these yourself. 1-would be nice, but adds bulk and you gotta have someone certify it ($$$) to "prove" its "protection." 2-drill holes in the visor. 3-mine broke so I bought metal fastex clips online for like $10. 4-the foam on mine is wallered out already I could fit a deck of cards in it. If the opening is too small (which it is pretty tight) just hot knife it. 5-I don't think plastic is going anywhere, too durable, cheap, and easy to work with. whike i understand your point. i will add 1. im not talking dot or snell. just better than what we have. my ex dropped her g3 and the jaw broke, they replaced it. but thats comical for protection. 2. they redesigned the g2 because of poor ventilation. im taking about behind your head, getting air to flow across the front through the back. my eyes are very wind sensative. no holes in my visor thank you. 3.great idea! ill do that as well. 4.i use an n3a, its too long for the pocket with the headphone plugged in. 5. i want the same plastic that they are using for the fuel. a few years ago i was speaking to a cookie rep at the invasion and they were talking about a different plastic composition that was stiffer, Polyether Imide or something like that i believe.

    Scala rider Packtalk?

    i stay on the forums about the scala/ sena. i personally use a sena 20s. its great if there are 3 or less people in a group. if you try adding more people than that you start getting strange sounds like popcorn etc that makes communication pretty tough. its decent for wingsuiting while wearing a g3, i dont know how effective it would be for regular freefall.

    Cookie G4

    i would like to see real impact protection. better ventilation better chin securing mechanism (not plastic) larger audible pockets. and a different material used Flock University FWC / ZFlock B.A.S.E. 1580 Aussie BASE 121

    St Patty’s Fitzgerald wingsuit peeps

    There will be a whole lotta wingsuiters there. no flock n dock anymore. the Georgia guys are supposed to have some demo Squirrel suits you probably wont fit in ;) I know a guy that might have something thatll fit you. also no need for wingsuiters to put on small suits, we can probably track with you in your suit. you should up your suit game and come join us for the new state record were planning on setting on Saturday!

    Crossfire2 speeding up the opening

    ive been jumping my crossfire2 119 for a while now, and it snivels for a long time. im looking to speed up the openings, any suggestions? currently pro pack, split the nose, keep the center cell exposed, and dont push anything in. ive tried leaving the entire nose exposed, but on heading openings suffered. im jumping it with a wingsuit, so heading is a big deal to me with this small of a canopy Flock University FWC / ZFlock B.A.S.E. 1580 Aussie BASE 121

    R Bird Pro 2 vs. Freak 2

    the ribs on the strix are made of "Skytex hard 38 gram zero porosity material with crossports" I owned an Rbird2, still own an X1, and have jumped a friends Freak a bunch of times. my Strix just arrived today. ill post back after i get it aired out. i am not sponsored by anyone and will provide an unbiased opinion once i get it in the air. ok i received my Strix, i absolutely love this suit! hands down the best suit ive ever flown. i exited on my back the very first jump. had zero problems with stability and pitch. it felt very natural to fly. transitions are a breeze, losing zero altitude. i was flying with a freak2 and out floating it with zero effort. i put it head down and it was perfectly smooth, no bobbling around. i cannot believe the power this suit has, honestly its really wild. i can flare on my back and gain so much altitude its unreal. i laid the suit on top of my Aura and could not believe how big it was. the aura has longer grippers, maybe 1/2" more tail and a little less arm sweep. when flying it there is no comparison, the aura has very high arm fatigue after floating it for a couple min, i didnt notice any arm pressure at all in the strix. there is absolutely zero comparison to the Rbird2, they are completely 2 different classes of suits, the rbird2 is much smaller. as far as the freak2 comparison, the freak seems to have more arm sweep and does not float as well, forward speeds are basically identical. with the strix i can fly the whole range of speed on its back with out my pitch being affected. i could not do that in the freak2. i can hit the brakes on my back and keep it level no problem. i struggled in the freak2 unless it was close to max or somewhat headlow. im still getting used to a few things on the strix because i didnt fly PF suits much. 1 flat grippers, strange feel but work good in the air, 2 zipper system. im used to the full body length zippers of Tony/Squirrel so gearing up is still feeling weird to me, 3 bootie snaps instead of magnets (i will swap the snaps to magnets) 4 the short leg zipper pulls. im not sponsored by anyone and paid full price for my suit. this is an honest review. *when i orderd the suit i requested thicker 420 denier fabric instead of their normal parapack, i prefer longevity over light weight Flock University FWC / ZFlock B.A.S.E. 1580 Aussie BASE 121

    Wings reserve flap problem.

    i had 2 out from a wings, the reserve flap was always coming untucked. the rig was sized for me. you know how i fixed it? i got a vector. ive never been a fan of that short tiny tuck tab covering my pin. now my pin is covered by a flap that closes in the opposite direction and actually gives protection. good luck. it wasnt worth it for me. piece of mind goes a long way in this sport Flock University FWC / ZFlock B.A.S.E. 1580 Aussie BASE 121

    Backflying with no backfly inlets

    I guess that's all a matter of opinion Keith, just got power back from hurricane irma. Pops had a heart attack during the storm, spent 12 days in icu. Hoping to pick him up today. But I've gotten into ppg flying and absolutely love it. Haven't sky jumped much this year. Got a new strix on the way, should be here end of the month. We need to catch up. Hope you're doing good!

    Backflying with no backfly inlets

    i put a backfly vent on my xbird and it flies great now on its back. just make a cardboard 3d template. cut out the fabric, sew it up, and attach. then hotknife the wingsuit fabric inside of the vent. i used some plastic as a stiffener to keep the vent open Flock University FWC / ZFlock B.A.S.E. 1580 Aussie BASE 121
