    Ultra Performance Canopies & AAD

    Once I go below my 75 I don't turn my cypres on. The 64 and 67 are way too close to activation parameters for my liking. Rollout for me is around 500-450 feet. Above where it would shut off. Peak speeds in excess of 96mph vertical. To me a speed cypres is stacking the odds in my favor, however in this real it's more likely to hurt than help (IMO) Ian

    VK slider

    I squeeze my rear risers together. That annoyance also went away when I switched to a RDS slider.

    Full RDS for terminal jumps

    i take it full terminal all the time. I do get the occasional rogue opening though - so be cautious. Ian

    Carving freestyle swoop pics

    Don't...seriously. Don't tattoo other skydivers on you. Never a good idea.

    skydiving helmets in movies

    I noticed the Gath's in Cloud Atlas too. Made me smile. I believe though that Gath was originally a surfing helmet. Ian

    Object Swooping...

    Yep no margin for error. Really good skills, riding a fine line.

    Stolen Gear in Monroe,GA

    You mean from a cutaway, or actually removed from the rig while on the ground? Post something in The Farm facebook page to get that group looking out for it. Ian

    Wing load and type of canopy for competition

    Whichever size and loading you can hit the gates most safely and consistently with. Ian

    "B" Canopy course?

    I know Flight-1 courses cover the requirements. Not sure on other peoples curriculum Blues Ian

    new distance rules

    I'd argue that we'd have gone significantly further (especially given the downwind) under the old rules. In order to provide an apples to apples comparison you'd need to include elevation, wind direction, and wind strength. Even then you wouldn't be factoring in the continued improvements of pilots (especially under new wings). Ian
  11. I was saddened to hear the news today. What a nice guy - I always really liked him. BSBD

    broken RDS

    ouch. no, never seen that. Mind if I ask who manufactured the rds?

    Are there plastic snaps on new Velocities?

    On the Competition Velocity, yes. I don't know if the regular ones now have them too
