How come everyone is hitting GR's of between 10 and 12 to 1 at around the 10s mark? Is there something dodgy going on with the software or those windy/thermal conditions are off the hook?
ETA: Just had another look through the list and there's something very dodgy with it... I know Espen is one of the best pilots in the business, but getting a climb of 25m 7 seconds after exit in a Scorpion? And an exit profile of 75/156 at 8, and 100/270 at 10s? No fricking way.
Is there any way to see the flysight files in that page?

Files available to download to their owners only. However I've took a look on Espen's file and found that when he starts climb gps satellite fix reduced from 6 satellites to 4 and came back to 7 after 3 seconds. Anyway climbing from 100 km/h vertical speed in big wingsuit is not a problem.
Anyway climbing from 100 km/h vertical speed in big wingsuit is not a problem.
Is not the vertical speed, but the total airspeed that is important. He "starts pulling up" when he's doing 98km/h. That's near stall speed for most wingsuits, and even more for a Scorpion. There's no way in hell you can turn an airspeed of under 100km/h into a flare with which you climb up 25m. And a Scorpion is definitely not a big wingsuit.
Then apparently while flaring out, he's still accelerating horizontaly. In one second his vertical speed went down from to 62kmh to 17kmh, while his horizontal went up from from 87kmh to 137kmh. Then he's doing 184kmh when his vertical speed is a cool -16kmh. (There's a 'minus' symbol in front of that).
He went from 87kmh to 184kmh horizontal in 2 seconds while at the same time flaring and going up...
That breaks so many laws of physics that if it's real you should send the file to NASA so that they can rewrite the whole theory of the universe
Same thing with Aleksei's tracks. While he's apparently flaring his horizontal speed is still accelerating, and he reached his top horizontal speed not just through the flare, but in the whole jump, at the apex of the 'flare' which makes no sense at all.
Do you get the same graphs if you run the files through flysight viewer or paralog?
P.s. Not saying he didn't do what he did, just that for that graph to make sense he must have got 30 to 40 kmh updrafts, which is pretty insane, though in fairness it sounds like he's russian, so probably thought it felt just a little bit breezy
