Consistent sneaky off-heading openings
Binary93 posted a question in Questions and AnswersI'm having trouble with pretty consistent off-heading openings. I personally think it's a packing problem rather than the body position but who knows. Do you have any idea why this is happening? Is there a trick in the packing that will prevent this? I'm sharing a video with several such openings, 3 hop-n-pops and 3 in terminal velocity. During the snivel everything looks normal but then when the inflation starts one side seems to inflate much faster than the other one causing it to turn. I pack pretty "standard" I guess, push the material outwards between AB, BC and CD lines, pull the slider a bit towards myself (to the front of the canopy) before the wrap, leave the front cells openings as they are (I hold them between the legs from the beginning of the packing until the wrap), turn it on the ground, fold it in thirds, turn it back, make the s-fold and place it in the d-bag. I also tie the risers together before packing to keep them symmetric. The canopy is Paraavis Ultimate 170ft with about 1.3WL. The video: Thanks, Damjan
Parachutes Australia Airforce reserve TSO or not
Youradhere posted a topic in Gear and RiggingHi, I have gotten mixed answers to this question so I wanted to ask here. Hopefully someone who owns one of these can chime in or a rigger who has experience with them I was told that the TSO may be written in a way that some riggers will pack it and others will not. Another source told me it has a TSO and there is no problem. The one I'm looking at was manufactured on 1999 if that makes a difference Anybody have any experience with this?
