No one is forgetting the swooping accident. The thing is that was not an error *in the system*... It operated within it's parameters, period. It is not the fault of the CYPRES unit that the operational parameters were met AFTER the parachute was opened.
The Vigil did the same thing (fired when parameters were met). You may not LIKE the parameters, but that is different than a malfunction of this type.
So you could lump the Vigil and the CYPRES into the "I don't like the parameters that it works" And that would be fine.
But the Argus is creating a situation where it does not work properly. Worse, in some rigs it locks the reserve closed.
I didn't buy a Vigil based on the door issues. I didn't buy an Argus based on the groundings in Europe. I don't fly a 69sqft canopy anymore so I could easily live within the parameters of the CYPRES... so I bought a CYPRES.
Well, you cannot compare this who things.. why? Cause one is caused by the user, and other can be caused by someone else.
Yes they both fired when parameters were met but you really can't compare them and dump it in the same basket.
If I buy A car, and MF says if you drive it more then 200mph your brakes will fail, and later added 250mph version, I'd be ok with that.
But if I buy B car, and MF says if you drive it and a kid in the back opens window your steering wheel will brake, and on top of that says they are aware but ok with that... well I really can't be ok with that.
