I'm hanging out waiting for this movie, amazing footage!

In the meantime I bought this one, it's fantastic and only cost a few bucks to support the film maker who did it out of his own pocket for the good of the sport.

I encourage everybody to get a copy at https://freeflyers.pivotshare.com

Well... there is a clear advantage the bags have on us. Don't think I could launch a hangie there.

I'm in the area on business through the weekend and would enjoy hanging out with other pilots. Where might people be flying this weekend?

Well, I was wrong about a couple of my comments. First, Bob was not a co-designer, but only a sales rep for the device. Second, it operates using a CO2 cartridge - something I'm not interested in messing with. I might try to come up with a better/simpler version of the device in the coming months.

Are they the ones with a bunch of holes in them and screw together around the control bar? I found a pair of wheels in the LZ very recently.

How about some ideas from you guys?

Great Video clip, I liked the music.

This Video reminds me of trips that I took to Big Sur, I remember flying there. I remember spots like Wild Cattle launch. I remember we all landed on Harry's Hill. I rememember Being up on a launch that John Heieny named the "s*** House Launch"

Good times, I want to return.

A year ago DxD gave away a 1080p version with 14 minutes of some of the best aerial HG footage ever recorded anywhere. It's still available for free download: https://vimeo.com/63291937

Obviously a completed film with a storyline would be really nice but the existing footage is really nice and better than most external footage you'll eve see.

Oh! In that case maybe I need to get you some !! LOL!
If I need any, gpwrinkled can get them in Phoenix, AZ and bring them next time he comes out to Crestline. I can order direct from the US distributor but there is a huge add-on charge for shipping that raises the cost per unit. I'd hate to think what that add-on would be coming from the UK. And please don't get caught with any in your carry-on items.
