I'm still doing Summo (or at least I will when I'm better) but I've got to say that video is really catchy and a very cool looking product.

Just take an old wingsuit with separate arm/leg wings, cut arm wings completely, and fly only with the leg wing. Either in normal tracking position, or with arm(s) stretched forward like a Superman (for BASE, temporarily stretching arms forward to set proper AoA and reduce the radius of the start arc would probably be necessary; not necessary in skydiving). You will leave any tracksuit/onesie/mutation/wingsuit in the dust.

Why no one else is doing this and why manufacturers are not making leg-wing-only half-wingsuits, is beyond me.

Great to hear! I started doing it in 2005 with Prodigy pants, then also with Phantom-1 and Vampire-2 cut in half (also like pants), and finally, with my V-4 with broken arm zippers, I simply cut the arm wings off and started flying like a Superman.

It just takes ridiculously long time for any innovation/fresh thought to finally catch with minds in wingsuit industry.

Perhaps, we'll see some ideas from here (actually conceived long time ago) in a few years?
