    Anyone tried the Om7?

    Anyone tried the new Icarus wingsuit canopy? I'm curious what you thought of it compared to the Pilot7, Horizon, or Epicene. http://www.icaruscanopies.aero/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=146&Itemid=676 "The ōm-7’s multi stage controlled deployment sequences will allow you to fly your wingsuit and experience worry-free, soft, on-heading openings. Peace of mind to conclude your wingsuit flight. Namaste" The ICARUS WORLD ōm-7 is a 7-cell, semi elliptical tapered canopy specially designed and engineered for wingsuit pilot, but it's also suitable for all skydivers looking for the reliable performance of a contemporary 7-cell canopy. His hybrid* construction (ZP, F-111), 2+3+2 nose configuration (external inlets partially closed, central inlet fully open) and parabolic low distortion reinforcement tapes allows the ōm-7 to deliver all you would ever wish for from a top-notch wingsuit canopy: Soft, on heading openings Low pack volume Great flight performances Powerful flare The RESULT is a "fun-to-fly", enjoyable, practical, easy to pack, outstanding 7-cell wingsuit canopy as well a parachute with enlightened performance for all other facets of modern skydiving. * Optionally available in full ZP
