    Skydive Louisiana

    This is a great 182 dz. The instruction is top notch and a fun place to hang around. It is practically wide open landing areas so you don't have to worry about making it back on a long spot. Everyone is super friendly and will make you feel at home. I recommend it to everyone I know that is looking for a new small 182 DZ in the area.

    Wings brake stow

    pinch the riser together and it should create a small pocket...Also make sure not to stow the tuck tab of the toggle in the front until you stowed the excess in the back. (Once the tab is stowed in the front it makes it even tighter to stow the excess) hope it makes sense

    Dolphin D2 container

    Dolphin was made by alitico but I think they were bought out by another company recently. A d-2 is made for a 160 Reserve 170 Main. Ask him what size the harness is to see if it will fit you. Small Up to 5'4" 100 - 130 lbs. Medium 5'5" - 5'7" 140 - 160 lbs. Medium - Large 5'8" - 5'10" 170 - 180 lbs. Large 5'11" - 6'1" 190 - 210 lbs. X - Large 6'2" - 6'4" 220 - 240 lbs. XX - Large 6'6" 250 lbs Also check and see if it was been modified to be freefly friendly if you intend on going that route later in your jumping career.

    Stills set up with go pro

    maybe you get a mount similiar to this http://www.chutingstar.com/skydive/gopro-low-pro-mount Mount it towards the bottom lip of your helmet infront of your lens. Turn the gopro upside down. I did it on my optik helmet and it worked. I have a picture of it somewhere i think

    Pilot 168 ZPX in an I4 or I5?

    what size reserve do you want to get? You can fit a pilot 168 ZPX in a I4 since it packs about 1 size smaller and it will be just fine. Shouldn't give you trouble packing

    IT HAPPENED!

    Wednesday morning, July 25, at 8:12 Mountain time, Red Bull Stratos jumper Felix Baumgartner exited a stratospheric balloon from approximately 97,000 feet for a freefall of 3 minutes 55 seconds. He reached an unofficial speed of 536 mph before deploying his parachute at approximately 13,000 feet above sea level, 8,000 feet above the desert southwest of Roswell, New Mexico. USPA Director of Competition Jim Hayhurst and the National Aeronautic Association’s Brian Utley served as official observers. Pending analysis of GPS data, the Stratos team may potentially claim three new Fédération Aéronautique Internationale world records. Two are almost 50 years old, both held by Major Yevgeny N. Andreyev of the Soviet Union, who in 1962 jumped from a balloon gondola 83,529 feet above sea level, freefalling 80,380 feet before deploying his parachute. Baumgartner’s jump has potentially eclipsed both Andreyev’s records, as well as his own vertical speed record of 365 mph, which he achieved on the first Stratos jump in March. Unfortunately, the Stratos capsule sustained damage on landing, potentially delaying the third and final Stratos jump, planned for 120,000 feet to break Joe Kittinger’s historic mark of 102,800 feet, set in 1960. from USPA website

    canon t2i for stills?

    One of my buddies uses one and has no problems and it works great. I use the t3i and there is no real difference between them besides my screen rotates unlike the t2i.

    Wing Loading Saber 2 170

    200 jumps and 1.5 wl with 5 years in the sport? I jump a sabre 2 170 at 1.2 and love it. The flare is amazing compared to the few other canopies I have jumped

    Audible altimeter warnings count?

    What a valuable tool the tunnel is!

    It is a great tool, even though it's cheaper per minute than skydiving, it's just all upfront instead over a long time frame. I myself have 3 hours of tunnel time with a little over a 100 jumps and it has helped me tremedously. The tunnel is about a 3 hour flight from me. I always recommend people going to the tunnel if they can

    Another Mirage Upsizing Thread

    I believe the ZPX packs 1 size smaller so it should fit I have a g4 m4 and I asked if I could get a 190 Pilot zpx and they said it will fit. (Optimal for m4 is 170) (Optimal for m6 is 210) They did tell me a Sabre 2 190 would not fit in mine but it fit just fine. I believe (but correct me if I'm wrong) you could always get a 7 cell 220 since 7 cells have a smaller pack volume

    pilot 188 ZPX fit

    If the g3 is still the same size as a g4 it will fit. Here is the response from Mirage about this. Todd, Yes, a ZPX 188 would fit in an M4 :) Let me know if you have any further questions! Thanks and have a great day! On Feb 5, 2011, at 3:51 PM, Todd wrote: Jeannie, Would a pilot 188 with zpx fit in the m4? Since I know the zpx makes a smaller pack volume. Thanks, todd I even fit a sabre 2 190 in my M4 and it was a little tight to pack but it fit

    Matter are useless. Jumpsuit recommendations?

    what about tonysuits? I ordered mine and got it with rush delivery and it made it to me in 2 weeks. I have been extremely happy with mine and the customer service was great
