  • Picking The Right Skydiving Helmet Bag

    With most skydiving helmets over $200, and the most common near $400 or more, it's a smart investment to protect your helmet when you're not using it.

    Most skydiving helmet bags also have additional pockets to carry your smaller skydiving gear and helmet accessories together so you're able to keep everything in one place whether you're at the drop zone, the wind tunnel or traveling around the world.

    Henry Kochen of the ChutingStar Crew took some time to show off a few of our most popular helmet bags this week to show you which helmets fit and the features of each.

    Check out this video and then see the links below for additional info and ordering information.

  • Customizing Your Cookie Fuel Camera Helmet

    Cookie's Fuel is the easiest "plug and play" option for a skydiving camera helmet available today.

    The majority of the available options can easily be installed through the modular mounting system on the top and sides. Additional options for larger camera mounts are available that require drilling into the helmet or attachment via VHB tape.

    Check out our video below that outlines many of the options for the Cookie Fuel, and then click through the links below to order the helmet and/or the additional options.

  • Keeping Your Head: Safe Cookie G3 GoPro Mounts

    Skydivers LOVE their Cookie G3 helmets as well as their GoPro cameras...but combining those two together has been a bit of a gamble in the past as the full-face helmet didn't have any type of cutaway system. And a cutaway system is important at 2,000 feet when that pilot chute just got snagged on your camera mount at the end of a crazy, funneled skydive with a "save yourself" deployment.

    Cookie hasn't yet developed a cutaway system for the helmet, so skydivers have resolved to either take the risk, make their own cutaway system, make a mount that is less likely to get snagged or find a mount that cuts away the camera.

    The first cutaway system for mounting a GoPro camera came out of Sweden by skydiver Daniel Fagrell. Daniel developed and produced the GrellFAB mount.GrellFAB G3 GoPro Cutaway Mount

  • Turned On GoPro Unit Does All That & More

    I have owned the Hypoxic Turned On status indicator for about 3 weeks and I have used it on nearly every skydive I have made since then, and I must say, the device does exactly what it is supposed to do, and it does it extremely well.

    Installation:

    Installation of the device was fairly straight-forward. Your camera must be upgraded to the most recent GoPro firmware at this link. Once your camera has the latest official firmware, you go to the Turned On website at this link and download a small patch file for the GoPro (currently, the Hero 3, 3+ and 4 are supported). You then copy that file to your SD card, stick the SD card back in the camera and turn the power on. The GoPro applies the patch and just like that, you're ready to install the Turned On hardware.

  • Turned On Meets, Exceeds GoPro Indicator Need

    Hypoxic sees a need and meets it...actually exceeds it. I would pay the $100 just to be able to stop asking people "am I on?"

    For anyone doing more than the casual weekend jumps, status indicators for cameras are priceless. The cost of missing an event you are paid to record is higher than the cost of the jump. When Trunk first introduced the Hypeye, immediately one was on each camera on my head. Yes, two cameras. In R&D I am not taking any chances of missing a shot. Knowing for certain cameras were rolling, it became possible to play with different shots from the same helmet. With the overwhelming use of GoPros, the security of knowing the camera was rolling has been sorely missed, until now.

  • X-Shut Flush Installation Guide

    The X-Shut camera mount can be installed on a flat or curved surface with a flush mount by using the Integration Kit. The video demonstrates how the installation is completed.

    Start by marking the center of where the mount will be installed. Use a 45mm hole saw to drill the hole for the X-Shut Integration Kit. Insert the outside piece of the integration kit along with the X-Shut base from the outside and mate with the bottom piece of the integration kit from the inside of the helmet. Screw together with the appropriate length of screw (provided with mount).
