  2. Very interesting thanks Bill. I was looking at electric vehicles a few months ago as my car is an Aussie performance vehicle and not great to drive in traffic. In the end I decided to go the opposite extreme since I am mostly working from home. I got an e-scooter which is great for little runs up to the shops and anywhere within 5 or 6 miles. Our public transport is pretty good and so I can use it to get to the train for trips to the city. It paid itself off in fuel savings in 4 months. The only downside is our government is very strict and e-scooters are speed limited to 15 miles an hour and you’re supposed to wear a helmet. Would be nice to be able to keep up with bicycles on the cycle tracks.

    Arrow Dynamics Hawkeye helmet, older design, but fully functional. (the paint is chipping at a few places but there are no structural problems). The lining is in very good shape. It has a near-new cutaway installed. There is a Schumacher Quick Shoe on the top and an improvised GoPro mount in the front, assembled by the previous owner (the GoPro mount comes with the screws and a plastic pin mount that I have taken off since I use Sony, not GoPro). The aluminium plate on the side that I used for a Sony action cam can be taken off easily (held by plastic screws and small holes). The cutaway is worth $ 30. A new Schumacher Quick Shoe is worth $ 90+. The sale price is USD 75, plus shipping (or EUR equivalent).

  8. Hai! On my helmet parasport z1, the fastex broke, or rather, the part of the helmet itself broke on which the fastex rests. Can you tell me how to fix this and is it possible? I'll leave a photo here. Thank you
  9. @the.Legend I have being using ActiveLook glasses as an altimeter for almost one year. I have a Viso II in my wrist and two audible altimeters in my helmet, so do not fear for my life in this experimental process. There is a way to create a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) with the software available on the market. What do you need? - Patience. I will not work perfectly first time - Full face helmet. This glasses are not airtight - Active look glasses. I use Cosmo Vision (discontinued) because they were cheap. But Engo should work. - An Android phone with barometer. I use an old Samsung S8, which has a refresh rate of 10hz (10 times per second) in the barometer. Pixel 6 and newer may work better, as they had a higger refresh date and accuracy in the barometer. If I am not wrong 25hz. Not tested yet I would avoid Iphones and Garmin as their barometer refresh date is of only 1Hz (¡¡1 TIME PER SECOND!! Too many things happen in 1 second in freefall) - XCTrack app. This is a paragliding app, but it have integrated barometer capabilities and ActiveLook - Subscription to XCtrack PRO (around 1€/$ per month). Being subscribed allows you to edit the active look layout. How I make it work? 1- In the XCTrack app, create a layout were ONLY barometric altitude is shown. There are more options as Glide Ratio, distance to a waypoint, etc, but I have not tested them (I am not wingsuiter) 2- Connect to the glasses through bluethooth, etc 3- Prior to the take-off, make the barometric altitude show 0. How? a- In the sensor calibration of the app, check the barometric pressure. b- Adjust the QNH to the current pressure, so the app thinks you are at sea level. Altitude =0 Jump into the plane, and see your glasses make some magic and the diference with your well paid altimeter. Things to consider. - Update rate of the activelook glasses is 1 per second. Do not expect more than that. - Adjustment of the layout and glasses will take some jumps. If you have a head mounted camera, helmet may rotate slighly backwards, move the glasses up and move the numbers up. Maybe you have to put the numbers down in the layout. - During the takeoff you will see strange things with the altitude shown. You have just find that your altimeters does not tell you all the truth in order not to fear you. Read about dinamic and static pressure, speed, and how pitot tube works and you will understand everything. - Do not expect Minority Report result, or fighter HUD. You will not see the altitude all the time. You have to focus your view slightly up and left to see the screen. This is easier and quicker than looking at your cheststrap (moving the head) or your wristband (moving the head and the arm) If you are intererested in making the same experiment than me, I can record the screen of the configuration steps, or even share a configuration file of the app. Make me know. This is quite experimental, use additional altitude awareness devices (akka official altimeters) as primary source for altitude awareness Blue and digital skies

  11. Hi, I received my Pactalk Slim from Cardo in the last week and I jump with a KISS helmet (Newer Model). I am not sure where to place the speakers as both sides for the ears are slots for audibles when peeling off the cloth. Does anyone have an idea on how to go about this?
  12. Hi everyone ! Last season I bought a Tonfly ICE helmet and absolutely love it. BUT, I need a flysight for wingsuiting and stuff and I can't find a dedicated sticky mount for this particular helmet. I got my eyes on the adrenaline workshop mount which would fit at the rear of a TFX but id prefer to be sure about the mount fitting on the ICE. Thanks a lot.
  13. True or False? I've heard a couple of times from experienced skydivers the stereotype that people with Kiss helmets are known to be inexperienced haha. First I thought it was just a joke, but having thought about it I don't know any experienced skydivers who wear Kiss helmets lol. Obviously a helmet does not determine how someone flies but I just wondered if that cliché is true among skydivers in general. Cheers, Marc:) (Yes, I have a Kiss helmet haha)
  14. Hello everybody, I've been using a communication system in wingsuiting with my friends for several years now (Sena 10Rs in my case). It really transformed training for us. We instantly doubled or even tripled the moves we did per jump. It is quite sufficient for low speed flights, XRW and similar stuff. However, the moment the airspeed (and therefore noise) goes up, the usability drops signifcantly. If we go to have fun - which is usually quite fast and steep - it is hard to understand anything. I did some sewing to place the speakers perfectly on top of my ear. There is no thick padding on top, just a very thin layer of fabric. We also simplyfied the communication itself: Preferred single words, repeated three times. Microphones are properly placed. At high speeds this is still not good enough. Friends of mine tested on of the latest Cardo systems. But it does not seem like a significant impovement. From the latest Senas I have also not heard about any improvement significant enough. The goal: Significant improvements on the microphone or speaker quality. Improved range would be nice as well. Ideas considered: Active Noise Cancelling Speakers: To my understanding, the technology requires a sealed environment (sealed speaker cups, or sealed in-ear headphones). - A seald earcup like any of the ANC headphones out there will not fit into a helmet. - Sealed in ear headphones do not equalize the airpressure Bone conduction speakers: - Cannot be integrated in the helmet, since the mount would need to press them against the head. - Would require the use of earplugs to work in a lound environment Throat Microphone: - Cannot be integrated in the helmet - Would require additional cables to the helmet - Was tested by a friend (in the vertical tunnel) without success. (Vertical tunnel may be a more challanging environment, but the goal is to have something that works at high speeds) Chinese communication systems: The range of Sena/Cardo systems seems quite limited. I would consider it "good enough" to train acro in a two way. But could be improved. I assume that some of the chinese units just do not care about western regulations and just dump much more energy into the radio unit to send a stronger signal. However, when it comes to noise reduction I'd assume that the quality of these units will not keep up with Sena/Cardo. Stuff Pilots use: The headphones used by pilots work with great insulation supported by great ANC (for modern ones). I had some old ones on my head once (pre-ANC). Just the insulation does most of the trick. There is a (still quite bulky) in-ear system from Bose. However, the issues described in the ANC chapter still apply. The noise reduction of the microphone is actually done by the plane's hardware, not by the headphones themselves. I discussed this topic with quite a lot of people in the wingsuit community. I am a little stuck and just out of ideas. Any solution should not come with cable chaos that has to be controlled every time we put on the helmet. I need something user friendly enough, so my friends actually use it :-) Any ideas, also weird stuff, are much appreciated. Just throw it in here, maybe we can figure something out.
  15. Hi, would like to buy your Cookie G3 helmet if you're still selling, but having trouble getting ahold of you. Please check your inbox.

      Hey sorry, I already sold it. Not sure how to take the listing down.

  16. https://jediairwear.co.uk/2022/02/g35-cookie-helmet/ I came upon this while wandering gear sites, looks like some interesting features that might be good for photographers and tunnel flyers. It certainly looks like a new design in many ways such as the front chin vent, but can't find info on the cookie website or elsewhere. I don't remember this being introduced, wondering if it had a very short life on the market or what?
  17. I have a large skull and I love Bonehead helmets. They have different shell sizes, and you can further adjust the fit by adding/removing shims in the helmet liner. I've owned several other brands, and after buying this Bonehead, I'll never buy anything else.
  18. The old Parasport Z1 full face helmet fit my large head easily, it is too big for even the biggest Cookie G3. I can wear a size L G4 or G35, but the G3 is no good. So many people sell barely used helmets because what they thought would fit based on how another model feels...never count on that, except as a reminder there are a lot of barely used helmets for sale.
  19. Need advice: which full face helmet has a visor extending lower (toward chin) so it allows eyeballs to look down as much as possible. I’m currentyly using Cookie G3 and when looking down I see helmet’s chin mold, i.e. my vision in that direction is somewhat blocked. To make sense of what problem I’m trying to resolve, see the picture below. The display is mounted in the position as low as possible for Cookie. If I will try to mount it lower than that, part of it would not be in the field of view, obscured by helmet’s black plastic. So I’m looking for helmet with visor extending down, which will allow to mount display in lower position. Looking at different helmets I got impression that Bonhead Aero has better vertical field of view. Does somebody has experience with Bonhead or with other helmets and can advise on that matter ?
  20. Hi everyone! I got task to give a presentation at our Safety Day in March following a conversation I had last year with someone that just bought a full face helmet and the steps they would need to do when it comes to start jumping with one. So I came here to see if I can get a few more ideas to give a more complete presentation. So what piece gear would you think require some "warning" or tip & tricks when first jumping with them? Here's my ideas at of now but please add details/items if you have ideas: - Full face helmet - When to close/open it, practice the opening sequence - Shaded visor (bleh) - Digital Alti - When to turn it on/off, what to know about them, pro/con compare to analogue, battery change if require - Audible Alti - When to turn it on/off, not a replacement for visual alti, battery change if require - New lines - What to know about lines, hop n pop or full altitude on first jump, when to change them - New canopy - How to downsize/change type, when are you ready to change, hop n pop or full altitude of first jump - Camera - When you can have one, what to look for, different mount, cut away system - Jump suits - Material and discipline - Skydiving gloves - When to wear them and what they should be - EP handles, D-ring or Soft ? So does anything comes up beside that? Also, what would you like to be present during a presentation on these items that I might forget? Appreciate the help!
  21. is there any minimum jump number for using full face helmet and digital altimeter ?
  22. You didn't articulate what advice you give concerning full face helmets, but one thing you might want to have in that briefing is to open the visor if a water landing appears eminent. Jumpers - one that I can confirm - have drown after landing in water with the visor closed when the helmet rapidly filled with water. Some may advise to remove the helmet before landing, but submerged items like logs, rocks, and debris can still be an issue.
  23. There's no such perfect spot. It's always a balance between snag hazard and the picture Full body view could be achieved by having camera far from the body i.e. selfie stick, but this is dangerous on many levels. I could give a full lecture about why this is a bad idea, but key points: * If you loose it, it might fail on someone's head or property * At terminal velocity it catches air like crazy and affects your flying a lot * Snag hazard * In case of accident/malfunction when you need both hands, what you gonna do with the camera? Just don't do that. Next on the list - helmet camera extensions - they've got their name "deathsticks" for a reason. Avoid that as well. Wrist mounts are widely used by tandem pilots, but those jumps are of completely different nature, shoot specific angles and thus wrist mounts work well only in that environment. Also those mounts have cutaway mechanism. I've seen some people with 360 camera chin mounts, which is comparably safe, but again, no full body view. You know, actually, there's one perfect spot that lets you see your whole body - when it's mounted on the helmet of your coach.

    G3 Helmet

    Welcome to the G3 helmet, Cookies latest release full-face helmet and a result of significant refinement of our previous full-face helmets. The G3 features the original VMech Visor Locking System that works unlike any other in the industry. The system makes for easy opening and positive locking of the helmet visor. The visor is 2mm polycarbonate and features a complex curved design for extra strength, unsurpassed field of view and an anti-fog and anti-scratch coating.The helmets cinching system is simple and secure, adjustment can be made to customize the helmet fit and once locked down just throw the helmet on and jump. The G3 helmet features a unique choice of replaceable Mouth Pieces depending on your needs. The Slim Mouth Piece is used for jumpers who require or prefer the mouth to be visible in freefall. This option is ideal for instructors or tunnel use. The second is a Contoured Mouth Piece used to direct your breath through the front vent of the helmet. This option is ideal for jumpers in humid or fogging conditions. Note that the helmet ships with both Mouth Pieces as standard.
  25. Has anyone ordered a “custom” TFX helmet by doing their own measurements? If so, how did it come out? Good fit? With my location getting a fitting from a rep is not an option. thanks
