  1. Thank you guys for your knowledge. That helps me to make a decision. I just want to do the right thing.
  2. Hello, A friend of mine wants to buy my S Fly Verso, he is currently jumping with 500 jumps- he has done 4 successful wingsuit jumps with Phantom Edge. Any opinions on if my Verso would be good for him? I fly a large wingsuit, so this small wingsuit is very easy for me, so not sure for beginners. Thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309

  4. MXV is not going to work, it's too flat and the camera screw is going to touch the helmet. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  5. Over a month ago, I posted in this forum about damage to my container. I took the container to the Javelin manufacturer and they found what the problem was immediately. It was a misplaced emergency handle that came loose somehow and damaged the strap. I'd like to thank everyone from Javelin who helped me with very fast and excellent service. And special thanks to Ben! David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  6. A friend of mine is moving to the USA and has enough experience to become a Tandem Pilot, but he has an old skydiving injury where he broke his femur and he has 3 long rods in his leg. This is fine in his country but will this a problem in the US? David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  7. Thanks. Yes, the yellow thread inside is broken. What do you suggest? David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  8. Thanks for your help! I live very close to the Javelin manufacture so I might go there and see what they can do. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  9. Recently I found one corner on the reserve handle pocket with damage (see photo). I currently fly a wingsuit but I don't think this is the cause because the wingsuit doesn't hit that spot and the damage is inside the pocket. My rigger can't figure out what caused the damage. The strange thing is, it's just the reserve but not the cutaway. Any clues? Thanks so much!! David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  10. I totally agree, you're right. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  11. Is it common for the pilot of a Cessna Caravan to increase speed to lift the tail before the wingsuiter exits? David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  12. I got my Vampire 5 on Wednesday. It fits perfect. I'm very impressed with it. It's way better that what I expected. The new features, the fabrication and the attention to details is incredible! It's very easy to reach my pilot parachute. If the weather is good this weekend, I will fly it. Thanks again! David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  13. Good news! Robert emailed me and the suit is ready and they will ship out on Monday! Just in time for Christmas.
  14. I wired the payment on August 27th and placed the order on May 2. I'll send him an email, thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  15. Has anyone else ordered their wingsuit from Phoenix-Fly back in May and haven't gotten their suit yet? I emailed them a month ago and they told me it was being cut but nothing since. Thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  16. It's both, upside down and the text is backwards. Tomorrow I'll try another computer to see how it looks and try the setting and take another video to see. Thanks very much for your help Trunk. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  17. Has anyone had any problems with image coming out reversed like you are looking in a mirror? I have the GoPro 3 black. I thought I set it for 1080-60 but I'm not sure if I made a mistake, but when I downloaded the video everything was reversed. Thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  18. I used my new GoPro Hero 3 this weekend and took a video of my wingsuit jump. It was about 4 minutes long. The file is HUGE and took a long time to transfer to my computer. I don't want these videos to fill up the computer. Is there a setting that can make the files smaller but still have decent quality? Thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  19. I got a new gopro in the mail today and on the lens there was a tiny spot of moisture or dirt. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you think it is condensation? Thanks. David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  20. I was wondering if someone has used the new Replay camera with other lenses like wide angle or fish eye. Thanks David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  21. Can someone explain to me what are the pros and cons for teflon wire and the new ones with zippers. I know the new wingsuit with zippers are faster to put on and I heard about some damages to the harness with the zippers. Thanks! David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  22. Do the new wingsuits with the zippers damage the container? How to prevent that? David Di Filippo 828-768-5309
  23. I'm a wingsuit pilot beginner and I need a canopy. I saw a good deal on a Monarch canopy. From what I know it's pretty much like a Sabre 1. To make sure, I'd like to hear from someone with more experience and knowledge and let me know if I can use this canopy for wingsuit fly. Thanks!! David
  24. Does anyone have one made in Japan?
  25. It's pretty fast for both. You just loosen the slider and pull the back of the condom up and forward and that way you can open the screen.
