Scott, you have not posted any videos lately despite accomplishing amazing feats. Your Youtube audience is very disappointed! Sad

I was trying to find the launch on google earth so I could calculate the glide to the bailout & the main LZ, but I was unable to locate it. I have only flown there once, but from what I recall it ...

I did repack it myself this year.
Was the bungie that released still inside the harness?
How are the bungies secured inside the inner grommet?
Did you re-use the bungies, or put new ones in?
Was ...

I remember that! I still don't condone it. I really don't think that it was the pins, but rather a disruption in the velcro seal. That makes the most sense as to why the whole thing fell out. Even ...

Right. I cannot explain why one pin was out when I landed. All I know is I checked it on my preflight & before I launched & it was secure. My harness sits high enough above the bar that the ...

Thats a possibility, but both loops were through the bottom grommets when I landed, if it were only through one of them then I would have lost one of the loops. On launch when I checked the pins were ...

Both pins were secure on launch. Im thinking the velcro must have come undone on the one side where the pin was pulled out. It is a very small strip of velcro, only about 1cm wide. I think the brid ...
