  1. Why don't we see crossbracing used on paragliders, speed wings, etc...?
  2. It flares great, with speed, you're just not swooping it Jump more, Bitch less.
  3. It had been modified just for those practice jumps. Jerry Baumchen you seem pretty intent on bragging about knowing something we dont know Jerry. Jump more, Bitch less.
  4. hopefully one of you can help me out with this. I'm looking at the GrellFab mounts for my G3 but from what little i've seen of them leads me to questioning their construction quality. the one i briefly saw looked like it was made from a shotty 3D print job. is this actually the case or do they have some durability to them? Thx j Jump more, Bitch less.
  5. awesome thanks guys. i'll take a look at some moto pants. yeah, shorts are shorts, i get that people like the custom thing but i think paying 400+ and having to deal with getting measured and the wait time is a little over the top if you ask me. Jump more, Bitch less.
  6. hey guys, anyone know any manufactures that keep stock swoop shorts? try as i might i still have a hard time spending all the time and effort of sizing my self and waiting 10+ weeks for a pair of 32" waist swoop shorts. Jump more, Bitch less.
  7. This is just one of those late night thoughts I'm sure we've all had at one point so I'll post it and hope we can have an interesting and some what civilized discussion about it. So here's the scenario: You're flying commercial you have your rig as a carry on, the AC you're on has a catastrophic failure, ie much more than just an engine out. Would you make an attempt to get out? Jump more, Bitch less.
  8. jeez, you used to need a few thousand jumps on here to be an ass hole, now you dont even need a hundred Jump more, Bitch less.
  9. Ok, so let me preface this with saying, i've never done a tandem from a helicopter, nor have i done a tandem hop'n'pop, not have i taken a former president of the United States on a tandem. But having said that let me throw my two cents in from behind my desk. damn dude, i've seen people hot on the drogue but his feet werent even off the strut when he pitched that thing! any who... feel free to chime in. watch: http://youtu.be/9Q11eGrcqxI?t=2m Jump more, Bitch less.
  10. hey guys, so i know this isnt the "speedwing forum" so try to bare with me but, could someone offer up a general explanation of how speedwing sizing works and what their *roughly* equivalent sizes and flight characteristics would be for a skydiving canopy? for pure example, take the Ozone fazer II, its a leading edge elliptical wing, would that have similar flight characteristics to a high performance fully elliptical non X braced canopy? maybe similar to a katana or Xfire2? the most common sizes i've seen are 10, 12, and 14m, is that roughly translatable to 99, 119, and 135sqft? thanks guys, just starting to dabble in the market for one of these guys and trying to set my bearings Jump more, Bitch less.
  11. skydivers in college are pretty hard to come by, im a senior at UC Davis right now and ive never met another skydiver the whole time i've been here Jump more, Bitch less.
  12. this is actually a terrible example of how to handle your shit, he actually spent so much time and go so focused on the chest strap that he lost complete altitude awareness and had an AAD fire. Jump more, Bitch less.
  13. so i've finally been initiated into the hardware-in-my-leg club and i figure theres no one else better to ask for advice about it than you guys so for all you experienced hardware toting veterans, have you ever had an issue with security anywhere? is it just a quick wave with the little wand after you set the main metal detector off and you cruise on through or have any of you ever had any serious issues getting though? Jump more, Bitch less.
  14. THIS THREAD IS AWESOME!!!!!!! keep it going! Jump more, Bitch less.
  15. are there any companies that just sell stock size camera jackets or are they all custom done? Jump more, Bitch less.
