Wingsuit stability problems

From New Zealand comes this video showing a wingsuitflyer caught in a bad spin after exit.



FlyLikeBrick.com has a series of (free) video tutorials, one of which deals with instability and recovery techniques. Check it out....(seriously!)

  1. I'm confused, I see a reserve PC come out at 1:17. Did his camera fall off due to opening shock or line snag?

  2. It looks like his camera/helmet fell off. It also looks like he managed to open even without a linetwist :)

  3. Nasty... yea so looks like a clean deployment after which he loses his helmet. Wonder how he got into a front loop 'spiral' from which he couldn't get out...
