  1. Try performance designs. They sell small quanities by the yards. They also do scrap bags where you get 6 yards of fabric in a bag, but no choice of colours.
  2. Since we're on that subject. I'm not a fan of taping up pc handles, especially in base. It defeats one of the big advantages of the handle in my opinion; being able to grip it with the edges. I'm much more a fan of stuffing the handle with pipe insulation and holding in place with double sided tape. If you fall through cloud and the taped up handle gets wet...
  3. We could eat as much chilli as we liked, that's for sure
  4. We don't really have many high exits in this country
  5. Finally, a manufacturer who allows the insertion of a tracker. What an excellent idea. Shame it's twice the price it should be.
  6. Day 1 in the sport and you're already beating yourself up eh?
  7. Ok because you really should get your April fools jokes in before 1200 local, otherwise you are the fool
  8. Booo! Boooo! No airmanship for skydivers! No peripheral knowledge that might help them out! Essentials only because their brains are so small and overworked as it is! Boooo! To be serious for a second though, I would absolutely love this SIM rewrite as an opportunity to encourage newer skydivers to learn more than just the essentials and become much more well-rounded jumpers.
  9. My friend wanted to jump the container with Aya in. I thought it wouldn't be fair if he got hurt so I just sent it myself. Not a bad beginner's object too. First base jump, home made rig. Anybody else done this? I didn't make the soft links or pc however.
  10. Something here that no one seems to be mentioning so I will. On the floor, the jumper will rotate upwards pulled by the risers with their feet as a fulcrum and their entire weight resisting the rotation. In freefall, the risers will rotate the jumper around their centre of mass with very little resistance, increasing the bend in the risers and increasing the peeling force on the riser covers. Also, so what if you land with closed riser covers?
  11. I've read that website so many times, and what he's trying to say makes literally no sense to me. All I've taken away is 'route the bridle up when going handheld, and open the pin flap on subterminal jumps' Unrelated, but I took my rig to the Expo last weekend and UPT Kenneth was there. What did he say about it? Exactly what everyone here has been saying.
  12. My containers are done. They are a bit tight because the harness shrunk more than I expected.
  13. Thanks for the posts everyone. As I said, I do read them and I don't just ignore them. But often I have to read through several times to understand. In fact I'm reading through the thread right now and things are making more sense. Thanks
