  1. My 100% subjective take... Interesting exercise. I've done a fair amount of freeflying in the past so I found that my brain sort of instinctively processed the original from a headdown perspective. But you're right, if you're not used to that sort of orientation, the original may look a little odd. I think you have the right idea in taking everything up to the exit rightside up, then flipping the headdown footage. That way the video is 100% sky->up, ground->down oriented.
  2. That looks very yummy.

    Made my first Wing Suit jump!

    Others can give the specific "whys"... but there's a reason that wingsuiters tend to upsize.... rather than downsize... their canopies. I currently fly a Pilot 150 that has been very good to me on openings. Don't think you'd want to upsize that 230 though. You probably just had a wonky body position at pull time. It's common on early flights.

    Wing span

    Assuming this isn't photoshopped (which I'm guessing it is), my brain is having all kinds of trouble processing something related to parachutes in any sort of NPS posting... well, one that doen't mention massive fines and jailtime anyway. So based on this poster, if you didn't wear a parachute, and landed your wingsuit in a Nation Park... and didn't die... the NPS would be perfectly OK with this. Someone get Jeb on the phone stat!

    Phoenix-Fly Coach - Examinors & Training

    So I take it the idea is to try to make instruction more focused by breaking the coaching program into sub-specializations?
