    Who was the first

    Who is the one you know of? When did they get their D? USPA will have the information you're looking for. Have you sent them a query?

    Buying my first helmet. Any tips?

    Grab a Benny from Chutingstar. They're a great helmet @full price. I've had one for years (old liner style), & have never regretted it. I would argue that it offers significantly more protection than that Bonehead you're also considering.

    tandemskydive after ear-operation

    Hi, Your English is perfectly understandable. I wasn't able to follow that link. Sounds like you had a Myringotomy. It's unclear from what you've written. You speak of pressure changes, but then mention earplugs. Earplugs help w/loud noises, not pressure changes. If you're sensitive to the slight pressure changes of a pressurized aircraft. Free fall pressure changes will surely cause you loads of pain. If your Ears can't equalize pressure fast enough. You'll rupture the Eardrum. Intense pain, vertigo, & nausea will be the results... Sorry, but you should definitely talk to your Doctor before jumping. Best of Luck.

    Audibles/Altimeters

    The Optima2 is more accurate, much more adjustable, & has canopy alarms. You'd be giving up a lot of functionality for a data logger you don't really need. Just my $0.02

    GoPro shuts off on jumprun

    FWIW. I asked GoPro about repair costs when they start acting up. In not so many words. They said it's a throw away. They won't even try to repair them.
  11. Thank You for posting this. I've been waiting to hear more specs on this camera. Edit to add: http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666484161#overview
