Diving Line Twists on Reserve Canopies
DonnellyB posted a topic in Gear and RiggingI've been searching hard for an answer to this question and I'm just not able to find it. It seems to me based on all the various cutaway videos I've watched (very scientific, I know) that diving line twists almost never happen on reserve canopies. Can anyone give me the technical explanation for why this is the case? Is it something to do with the aspect ratio or trim of reserve canopies? Should this knowledge inform anything about I fly reserve canopies (ex. if trim is different)? Thanks in advance!
Reserve Parachute Deployment - Line Twist
Gavrilo Andrić posted a topic in Safety and TrainingHi people, During this weekend I had a quite aggressive line twist, at least from my point of view ATM. This is X-fire 124ft (loaded around 1.57) made by Icarus World. I'm not 100% sure what went wrong and what caused this situation, so please shoot your opinions and advises :) Thanks!
