    Flysight as audible

    The audio alarms do work. But for many reasons do no not use it as audible backup. - Loss of gps signal due to body position etc. - You have to acquire signal at the start of the day. - You have or adjust the altitude by hand, when switching from dz. - Headphones could disconnect. - Unless you gonna use the Flysight a lot for other purposes; it's too expensive as a back-up. Just buy a Solo II "The 'perfect' parachute jump was thought to be one where the opening shock and touchdown were simultaneous" -Lyle Cameron, ~1965 --- Falling-With-Style.com

    Grids, newer grids, and newest grids

    I know you where not a fan. But I thought that the grid was a nice idea: Everyone flying in their slot. But I was wrong to assume that was the case. I missed the discussion about the aspect that people are allowed to cross the line. so I thought I mention it.

    Grids, newer grids, and newest grids

    Grids... well, I just read the weird FAI rule that states: Up to 25% of the people not flying in their slot. Thats so ridiculous... I thought that not crossing that virtual line was the challenge, and part of the skill and fun. :-/ "The 'perfect' parachute jump was thought to be one where the opening shock and touchdown were simultaneous" -Lyle Cameron, ~1965 --- Falling-With-Style.com

    Flysight Field Selectable Config Files

    But if i'm correct, the new firmware doesn't have the flyblind mode. Which would be nice. "The 'perfect' parachute jump was thought to be one where the opening shock and touchdown were simultaneous" -Lyle Cameron, ~1965 --- Falling-With-Style.com

    Cloud Rules

    Eeehhh ... No. You do not *have* to jump. It's perfectly fine to go around and be dropped trough a hole OR get out below the clouds OR ride the plane down.

    Helmet, goggles, gps, pc, canopy

    Hi, Helmet - You're not gonna ski right? So I would look for a skydive helmet. The advantage is that those have pockets for audibles. Goggles - I'm personally not a huge fan of sky goggles. They take away a fair amount of your peripheral vision. Which I've seen lead to dangerous situations. Use skydive goggles. Personally I think these http://sunshine-factory.com/store/product.php?productid=31 ones are the best, although not as sexy. GPS - The Flysight is very nice if you make only solo's. If you have others to jump with, you can learn a lot because of the visual feedback. I cut down the cheapest headphones I could find and put one of the speakers in my audible pocket. PC - You can opt for a longer bridle and larger PC, but if you are a beginner, in a small suit, standard equipment should suffice. Canopy - I jump the Storm. Just use a docile canopy that, when in a twist, just keep flying. So 7-cells are nice.

    Flysight beta update for voice glide ratio

    Could you PM me too? (why is it secret?) Is this what you are looking for? http://flysight.ca/wiki/index.php?title=Firmware_upgrade It has talking firmware you can download. I believe those are still the old beta's at the moment. Could someone PM me too? In the latest beta I've seen, there are 'audible alarms', which you can set manually. ***note: the alarms are 'Above Sea Level', not necessarily 'Above Ground Level'.*** "The 'perfect' parachute jump was thought to be one where the opening shock and touchdown were simultaneous" -Lyle Cameron, ~1965 --- Falling-With-Style.com
