Optional homemade legbag for the SupAir Acro3 harness.
The story behind:
Most of the time I fly acrobatics. But sometimes I also go for some cross country flights. On this XC flights I always used my main harness, the Sol Slider Acro, and now the Supair Acro 3.
So if you fly in Spring time at an altitude of 3000m and more with an acro harness, you have to wear the same clothes like you wear when you are skiing in winter. And even with this outfit you will freeze your feet off. On the starting place, while you are waiting for the right thermals for your XC flight, you will swet a lot.
So what can you do against this? Right, get yourself an XC harnes with legbag!
One of the reasons why I don't like to buy one of these harness is, that when i go flying I take nearly every part of my paragliding equipment with me, because you may need it?! With tandem pg + harness, XC wing, acro wing, speedglider, girlfriends pg, sometimes Phil's wing, ... it's a lot of stuff to carry around, even in a VW T5 Bus. I don't want to drive around another equipment.
So I thougt it should be possible to design an optional legbag for my Acroharness.
... and this is what I did :D
This project is not easygoing. I am no professional sewer or similar. I know a little bit how to handle the sewing machine. So if you want to try yourself out in making this legbag, you hav to see this "how to" just to give you some hints and not as a step by step guideline from zero to working legbag. I tried to make photos from every step I was doing, but sometimes I didn't think to make photos. so there is not every single detail, but a detailed overview of the whole project. If you ask for patterns, I have to disapoint you, because it was all made by adjusting and sewing.

Last week we went again to china for the 2nd Beijing International Aviation Sports Invitational and tried to defend our first place from last year.
This year we did all runs from the helicopter and not from the mountain.
In the first run we flew on the first place with nearly 10 points in front of the 2nd placed team. But in the second run we made a few mistakes and didn't really recognize that the winddrift was that strong, so we had to stop our display and go for position again. Because of that we lost a lot of points in this run and landet on the 3rd place.
Because of the smog in the next days, it was not possible to make the 3rd and 4th run.
1. Sebastian Kahn - Simon Winkler
2. Lino Oehl - Tim Alongi
3. Thomas Laireiter - Philipp Reisinger
All in all we had a lot of fun in Beijing. We want to thank Markus and Fabrice for the good organisation and hope to see you guys all again next year ;)

The Competition Season for this year is over now.
First Worldcup stop of this year was the Acromax competition in San Simione (IT). We competed in Synchro and Thomas also did the Solo Worldcup. It was really nice at this flying site and a really relaxing comp with no stress ;)
We did our best but because of a little misunderstanding of the new rules, we just made it to the 10th place after two runs and so we did not qualify for the final. In Solo Thomas did his best, but couldn't reach the top 15 to be in the final run. So he finnished 16th overall in San Simione.
The second and last Worldcup Stop was the Acrojam in Obertraun. Thomas competed in category solo. The skill level was really high but he did three really smooth runs with always nice groundspiral to raft landing and finished on the 10th place.
So the overall Worldcup result for him this year is the 11th place! :D
A few days after, we drove to Villneuve for the Sonchaux Acro Show. We have been invited to compete there in the first time Synchron Aerobatic Battle. The System was really nice and fun. In each run we got two cumpolsory maneuvers and the rest of the run was freestyle. There was no coefficient like in the APWC System, so we could perform really nice freestyle runs. After the first run, the teams had to fly against each other and the winner of the battle is in the next run. In the semi final run we lost against the SOL Acroteam just about 0,8 points and so we had no chance for the 1st or 2nd place and had to battle against the Swiss CAT Team for the 3rd and the 4th place. We won and so we secured our place on the podium and finished 3rd overall! :D
