  1. I think more than a few of "us" wonder what it is like to fly a wing suit. I know I do. http://www.hanggliding.org/viewtopic.php?t=21814
  2. Cool , I want to check this out. Lodi is only about 2 hours for me. Is there going to be a party after ??
  3. Descent . ? I never could figure out the English language .
  4. I'm not sure that the wing loading is all that important . Matching the decent and the forward speed is the key . I'm thinking a glider like a T2C and a pilot using a draggy harness could do the trick.
  5. Wills wing makes a 135 with max hook in of 200 lbs that works out to 1.93 lbs per sq foot including the weight of the glider.
  6. Matching the speeds should be doable. Matching the trajectory will be the trick. Ryan Voight hit 118 mph in a dive , that is the fastest speed I know of. I would say 85 or 90 is a more practical number. Drogue chutes are common but they are attached to the harness not the glider. A better solution would be to just use a more or less draggier harness in order to match the trajectory of the wing suit .
  7. That was just unreal ! I had to add that to my favorites list .
  8. WOW ! Great video's . i was completely surprised that a pilot with a chute deployed could keep up with a wing suit . simply amazing.
  9. How slow can a wing suit pilot fall ? At 2;40 in this video the pilot says as slow as 30 mph . Is that accurate ? I have been wondering if it is possible to fly in formation with a wing suit pilot with my hang glider. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThXwCXV_olM
  10. I think that HGpilot guy is an idiot.
  11. We could use some help with new hang glider designs. Anybody got any ideas that could help us out please post them here. http://ozreport.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=2
  12. Ya'll certainly are an entertaining group of pilots. Wait a minute, are wing suit jumpers "pilots" ??
  13. Thank you Trae , your post gives me some insight. I am happy that you found your calling. Flying a wing suit must be amazing. I am envious .
  14. Thanks Martini. Lets give it a try, ya,ll will enjoy this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyOpkGkJR-0
