  1. A number of us who live in Colorado and have MHS as our home DZ made several comments during the trial that derogatory comments about Kim, people threatening fly by's, etc. on were not helping our case. This latest rant is about "bullies" threatening these sorts of things, false claims of it happening, etc. These sorts of comments are counter productive and feed right into her story. For those of us who live in Colorado, please refrain from these sorts of statements. First amendment aside, such comments do more harm than good. I don't know if it's still active but the "Citizens Against Citizens For Quiet Skies" facebook page is full of exactly what you're talking about and doesn't help the cause at all. Just a bunch of people talking trash and calling Kim a bitch/cunt/etc (at least when I left it couple years ago).
  2. Anyone know when this thing is actually coming out in the US? Hopefully in time for the holiday season?
  3. Does this mean the X1000 already has BOSS for 1080/720? And for all framerates?
  4. The IBA draw generator includes the 8 way pool
  5. Wow, more expensive than iFly...
  6. What's a split rig?
  7. Have you looked into one of the kids/family leagues? It's a good way to fly regularly for a decent rate.
  8. I couldn't agree more, thanks for saying this. That "Citizens Against Citizens for Quiet Skies" facebook page has done more damage to our cause than anything else with the derisive and sexist comments they allow on every posting and I would encourage people to unlike it and distance themselves from those opinions.
  9. I thought it was going to be that new video of the 300 jump velo guy
  10. First of all, don't fly with other beginners unless you guys are under the direct supervision/spotting from an experienced coach (most tunnels will require this anyway). Also have a plan and stick to it and try to do a minimum of improvisation. Even if you are playing follow the leader or something similar, have a rough idea of what you will be doing before entering the tunnel. The worst tunnel accidents I've seen are when multiple people are "messing around" without a plan and end up in each other's airspace at high speeds. If someone falls into your burble it's probably too late to do anything honestly but by taking proper precautions (e.g. not flying too high off the net) it shouldn't be a big deal and you will laugh about it. The reason the (now deleted) video ends in an injury is because they get way off level with each other which is a no-no. Also being able to fly extremely close to someone without falling into their burble (or hold your position while people are pushing/pulling on you) is a different skill that you will pick up as you gain experience.
  11. You guys both appear to be pretty inexperienced and somebody fucked up. Is it really necessary to air dirty laundry by calling your partner an idiot on a public forum? Also I agree with cocik that you guys were too high, you should be turning points close to the net so there's less height to fall on each other when somebody burbles
  12. I know at least a couple experienced jumpers who never got over this phase and always want about skydiving when we hang out around whuffos because they think it's impressive. It's obnoxious as fuck
  13. Not really, employers will still be free to drug test their employees if they want. There's no law saying you can't fire someone for pissing hot. Much like jobs that do alcohol tests despite it being perfect legal to drink.
