  1. 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

  9. I hadn't thought of that! But definitely could have been the case (I didn't get out of those)
  10. No, standard infinity without any wingsuit options on it
  11. I don't have a fly site :( but was jumping a small acro suit. From our video it looks like maybe the bag got stuck in one corner coming out then got twisted around, I was stable/symmetrical during pull time.
  12. See attached - my pilot7 (loaded a little over 1:1.2) flew straight the whole time I was working on these (over a minute -- I pulled high).
  13. http://www.performancedesigns.com/video-horizon/ Has anyone demoed one of these? What do you think compared to the Pilot7?
  14. Looks like pricing and all that is out: https://www.sunpath.com/order/aurora.php

  16. I reached out to Sunpath with some questions about this container. One of them being that when i'm not doing working (belly) jumps that I like to wingsuit-and what their thoughts were about me using this for both. Their response was "This container is designed specifically for Wing Suit applications and we would not advise that the container be used for any other discipline"
