Russian wingsuit landing project?

From the you-heard-it-here-first department comes this strange little blurb:

Russian engineers are working on an individual flying vehicle, which users will need no parachute.
New flying vehicle looks like a Batman suit. Its main idea is a wingsuit, widely used in sky-diving, which is a jumpsuit with textile webs between extremities. Ordinary wingsuit doesn’t provide landing, because it cannot be used insdead of a parachute.
New development of Russian engineers boasts larger webs for improved stability and safe landing. Landing will be based upon “cushion” effect, common for landings with parachutes of “wing” type. 
Engineers are currently calculating optimum parameters for the suit and will soon start testing a full-scale model of the suit in a wind channel.
This is an English language summary I found on the Russian Infocentre website. The original Science News article is in Russian; I let Google translate give it a shot, and it's surprisingly readable:

Volo - update

And some more progress on the wingsuit game Volo.

Check it out!

Playing with canopies

Niklas Daniel just uploaded a nice video with more canopy vs wingsuit flights

Barry Holubeck and I just completed a two day training camp, experimenting with new approach methods, flight modes and formations. During our camp we made some great discoveries, such as: a new exit strategy that does not affect jump run (pilot does not have to do any special patterns) and we also cut our set up time down from 60 seconds to less than 30! (that is from exit to first contact)


Movie site 'Ain't it cool' reviews early footage of Transfomers - DARK OF THE MOON

Ain't It Cool News has a lengthy article on the new Transformers movie, set to be next summer's blockbuster.

The movie is going to be 3D (what else do you expect these days:), and the footage from the perspective of a solider wearing a wingsuit flying through downtown Chicago is apparently pretty spectacular.

Some selective quotes from the article:

there's a vertiginous aerial dive shot from the perspective of a soldier in a wingsuit (Bay had these guys zipping around a skyscraper-lined two-mile stretch of downtown Chicago for three weeks)

I had the same guys that did AVATAR and have a lot of experience with that system, but they'd never done what we've done. We put it through a rigorous test. We strapped a camera on a skydiver, you know that doesn't really happen much. We put it on systems that it's never been on before.

I'm still of the opinion that a great Michael Bay action film doesn't need 3D to blow me away, but it really does look like he's done something remarkable with that wingsuit sequence. I can only imagine how it'll play on an IMAX screen. I'm going to have a light lunch that day.


Unfortunately no footage to show you here...lets hope a potential next trailer involves some sneak peeks at the wingsuit stuff, seeing as its highlighted as the spectacular action piece of the movie in a lot of articles.

Check out the article here.

New edition of snowboard game SSX to feature wingsuit base?

Lots of game sites have been reporting on rumors that the next installment of SSX will have a wingsuit flying element in it.

On Gamespot.
On Atomicgamer.
On Gamerant.

And lots more reporting the same thing. Would be interesting to see what they'll make of it.

I'm still waiting for our our friend Martijn Zandvliet to complete his game Volo that we've posted many previews of! Hey Martijn, are you listening?!? More importantly, are you working on getting the game done so we can all have a go and not just watch you having fun in the demo videos you keep posting? :-)

Wings

Raymond of Underground Planet posted a video he shot together with Douglas Spotted Eagle:

A few months back I was asked by Douglas Spotted Eagle (aka Spot) and VASST to co-present in one of their training videos that was going to be about shooting with DSLR’s. I had personally purchased more than a handful of their training DVD’s in the past on various subjects and jumped at the chance. Spot is someone that I got to know through several video related forums early on and has been both a mentor and a friend ever since and it was an honor, if not a little surreal to be doing this with him so many years later.

Needless to say I had a great time up in Utah hanging out with him and Mannie Frances, his partner, while working on this and am thrilled to say that it’s finally out and available! The clip is actually on a bonus section of the DVD. You can check it out here

Intl Artistic Wingsuit Competition 2011



We have finalized the place and date for the 2011 international edition of the Artistic Wingsuit Competition.

The competition will be at beautiful Gap, France, the epicenter of French wingsuiting, home dropzone of S-Fly manufacturer Fly Your Body and home dropzone of the French wingsuiting team Soul Flyers. We're really ramping it up this year by getting the professional people from the Fly Your Body team involved with the organization of the event.

The date is 1st to 7th of August. A few days before to get some last-minute practice in, and then the official competition starts on the 4th. We expect to be able to finish the competition in 2 or 3 days, and there will be load organizing and flocking afterwards with large groups and small groups doing bigways, 3D formations, sequentials, and other types of wingsuit jumps.

We have revamped the website design and are in the process of filling it with content.

Info for the 2011 competition can be found here. As the event date nears, we'll be adding more details on prizes, accomodation, getting there, etc.

We also have a Facebook page this year where we'll post updates and you can RSVP to the event (if you have a Facebook account).

If you'd like to attend this years event, let us know by sending an email to info@wingsuitcompetition.com!

Camera lost during wingsuit BASEjump.

My wife lost her Sony CX6 when the fixing bolt failed during deployment and the camera fell 600 feet or so into dense forest. (it was during a BASE jump)

This was 5 months ago. A couple of weeks back a friend of mine from Rome called me - a long story short - he has a sponsor and jumps with a logo'd wingsuit. The sponsor received a phone call from a guy called Aldo who was out picking mushrooms and found a video camera.

Aldo found the camera, dried it out and took out the memory card. He didn't manage to watch the videos but found some photos showing the sponsors logo and after a few phone calls he managed to track us down.

We met up with him to express our thanks at his efforts but having already written off the camera, 4+ months outdoors... at least we'd have the memory card back.

We charged the camera up out of curiosity and turned it on - it made some very strange noises and then started to work normally :)

Remembering Steve Harrington

Jeff Donohue posted this to dropzone.com today:

A year ago tomorrow, our brother bird Steve Harrington had a tragic accident following the last jump of the 68 way in Elsinore.
Many of you jumped with Steve and knew the measure of the man - a quiet, unassuming guy who wanted nothing more (and nothing less) than to fly his wingsuit. He wasn't showy. He didn't care if there were cameras running or whether the jump was a "boring" small flock or a record. He just loved to fly.

On November 21, 2009, just a few of Steve's many friends got together to fly a missing man formation in his memory. The video from that day is here and a memorial page about Steve can be found here

I, for one, miss him. We will not see his like again.

Blue skies, Steve.

Additionally, you must now notify Manifest and the pilot that you are wingsuiting.
Flock is building fast here, warm weather expected for much of the winter. C'mon down and get some airtime!

Wingsuit inspired car?


Edmunds Inside Line posted an article about this Honda concept car.

Honda Air concept for the L.A. show Design Challenge is a "coastal cruiser for the aggressive lifestyle" with compressed air/pneumatic drive with the bonus of turbo vacuums. Inspiration was the skydiving wing suit and the modern rollercoaster, says Honda.


I guess we'll hear more about it when the LA Auto show kicks off. We'll keep you posted on details of what is wingsuit inspired.

Check out the article here.
