  2. I did that but just threaded my (wide) chest strap through it. Held solid and worked pretty well facing both backwards and forwards. I'd suggest rounding off all the corners though, those things are strong and sharp!!

  4. My HAWK isn't. My friend had an Expert made from the weird 'crinkly' stuff (although my older Expert wasn't). My HAWK is far far better in quality and feel, imo.
  5. I dunno...looks like he could use a bit more glide than his 120 Spectre gives!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GVQc12i2_X0#t=375
  6. And some of the OP... The range of the suit is mighty impressive to watch, especially at break-off. Steve's no ninja but this thing is rock solid on its back and a lot of fun to chase. As noted above, the attachment system looks messy on this particular suit and raises a few eyebrows during flight-line checks (UK) etc, so fair dues to Tony for coming up with a solution. I'll post some pics of the replacement as soon as it arrives. [inline 01.jpg] [inline 02.jpg] [inline 03.jpg] [inline 04.jpg]
  7. I reckon the undone chest straps was just about more airtime for the BG logo's on their jackets. Worked on me...second thing I noticed

  9. For future reference no hair dryer needed, just pop it apart. It's just the same as loc-line hose normally used supplying coolant to cutting heads etc. See here http://www.loc-line.com/ Plenty of opportunities to make your own mounts/lengths etc should you like to mess around with stuff like this. Awesome design :-P
  10. I can't answer your question, but saw this the other day and wondered the same thing: http://vitaminl.tv/video/2127
  11. This. To keep it believable and understandable for non jumpers. BASE rig out of a small chopper at 2k, rooftop landing, repack, apartment stuff, jump off balcony. Sketchy Andy landing in a rooftop pool at night http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=eNdStLwoak8#t=150
  12. How simple do you want it? Biggest 2-pointer sets a record. Biggest 3-pointer sets a record. Biggest 4-pointer sets a record etc. *imo.
  13. Would it though? What's realistically possible at anything over 100-way ~5points? If so that's just four possible sequential records. Probably less if 400 ever gets beaten.
  14. Holy cow, I veal sick after reading that
  15. Just read this on the gethypoxic FB page: current software version: HD3.03.03.00 Wi-Fi version: release date: 07/30/2013 Feature Enhancements: Enables compatibility with new GoPro App features Corrects HDMI TV preview from low res to high res Fixes forced exposure lock on 0.5 and 1 second time-lapse intervals Optimizes compatibility with select microSD cards by reducing data stream rate to 35Mb/sec while recording in 4K, 2.7K and Protune™ modes (HERO3: Black Edition only).
  16. I've never seen that order before. Do you know what the thinking is behind it?
  17. Depends really.... http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/sep/20/elliott-delaney-funeral-dress-promise
  18. Lots of Scots travel down to BK's to jump but I don't think there's any AFF courses planned just now. The http://www.theaffschool.com/ runs out of Peterlee with courses here and in Skydive Spain. Two of their AFF Instructors even live in Edinburgh.

  20. The following are LouDiamonds words from an old thread. I don't know how similar the wings and UPT puds are but it might be worth looking at. "Something you might want to look at, as I use the UPT freefly handle on one of my rigs, that I found works for me. The handle has a piece of plastic sewn between the cordura that acts as a stiffener which is tucked under the lip of the container and keeps the actual handle secure and in place for freeflying. For wingsuit jumps I don't tuck that stiffener under the container flap but leave it out. The handle still stays in place and the exposed plastic gives you additional positive tactile feedback with or without gloves on. I found that with the stiffener in place under the container the pull was not as smooth as I like. However, on regular skydives I tuck the plastic under the container flap as designed.."
  21. +1 why do some people expect others to do everything for them ? -1 it's a forum, where people go to ask questions and get help.
  22. My R-Bird/Emporer penguin suit ;) ...and get the base soles and the extended leg zip options, both are worth it IMO.
  23. I tried this method this past weekend and I like it. It raised a couple of eyebrows during flight line checks but at least that shows that my fellow jumpers aren't doing things on auto pilot. It also lets my pin flap sit a little cleaner over the top of the pin (Teardrop Superfly) which has to be a good thing. Converted. Thanks
  24. Ryoder would have a heart attack. Does that count? ;)
