All that expense just for a canopy promo? Nice work if you can get it. Would love to see some HD footage from this trip.

It''ll end up to be a lot more than a canopy promo when all is said and done. The number of people that this canopy can be marketed to could be counted in double digits. I'm a very good flyer, IMO, and no where near rated for one of these. The Velocity 96 is beyond "Expert" rating. Ground speeds of 100mph under canopy are quite possible with that rig, it's that speed that allows the team to fly upside down. By comparison to these Formula One canopies, I fly a boat nearly double their size.

More on the project to come later, once we get other locations in the can. Grand Canyon was unique in that it offers negative space (hole in the ground) that allows for very unique camera angles and depth, not to mention the air was fat with the cold.
