    time to ditch the GoPro ......now what?

    I am tired of corrupt files and camera turing off when filming tandems.....GOPRO........... Plan is to move to a more professional setup. I edit with Final Cut Pro and need to know from all the folks with the expertise on what is the best option. I hear a lot about Sony......also plan to put together a Cookie with cutaway system....... Any help would be great. Ryan Ryan 242196

  6. i took it out of the rig last night and left it on on the counter over night. still on this morning......... thanks 'parachutist', i will see what they say this week when i talk with them. Ryan 242196
  7. I have a question. I just bought a used Tandem rig and it came with a Vigil (S/N 9089). My wife and I both fly Vigils in our sport rigs too. The strangest thing happened today. I switched on the AAD prior to the 1st jump and Tandem was displayed on on the screen following a normal start up. While doing a gear check prior to the next jump, about 45 minutes after the last jump the screen was blank. Pushed the button and the green LED flashed and the LCD displayed 'Hello', then went blank again. If i pushed the button again it started the shutdown sequence. If i shutdown the unit and started it back up again all was good for the next jump........ Is there something wrong with my AAD? Ryan 242196

    Skydive Spaceland Dallas

    Skydive Dallas is a class DZ! I was welcomed as sky-family and felt at home right away. Lots of indoor room to pack, socialize, debrief, and prep for the next jump. 2 mock ups and easy to manifest. Will go back for sure!.

    Wasted Talent Skydiving

    This DZ is just getting going and has some limited hours right now, but they are worth the wait! Every time I go out there the place gets better. The local jumpers are great and the DZO is very knowledgeable and make sure we are all safe and have a good time. For a truly good time, come on out!

    Skydive Utah

    This was my second DZ I ever visited and I have to tell you what a wake up call! I did not know that it could be this good. I was still pre 'A' license and the amount of help and coaching was AMAZING. I never had that much help at my home DZ by Vegas! I will be going back this year. Good times and fast ride to alt, 13,500 in 7 minutes! WORTH THE TRIP!

    Skydive Mesquite

    Fun Jumper friendly and close to Vegas. The Caravan is there for about 6 months out of the year and you always get good alt to dance with the sky! Good vibe and the DZO still love the sport!
