OSP2 Can't Post

 
Andrej advised they can be pre-ordered and I understand there is at least one being tested in the UK.

It was mentioned that the glide has been enhanced implying that it might be a significantly different canopy.

Has anyone got one or flown one and can advise on its charachteristics?

Interested to hear info on this. I ordered an UL Vision 285 in early February, and am literally waiting on pins and needles.......

From what I have heard from a few folks, the Vision IS an OSP with better glide and sacrificing every-so-slightly on deep brake flight, but time will tell. I am curious as to how the OSP2 and Vision will differ

There is quite a bit of discussion and info on the Vision on this site.

From what I can make out it is a High Glide Canopy and has significantly different flight characteristics from the OSP. It is comparable to other High Glide canopies i.e. the Hayduke. The original OSP is perhaps more akin to the Outlaw. TomA has quite a bit of experience on Visions (and most other canopies) and has severally discussed them here.

Also there is now the VisonWS iteration.


I dont own either (yet) so I'm only repeating what I think has been stated in these forums.

well amigo I'm hoping to come for a baring load later this year - assuming I'm off supervised probation by then (which I should be)...... We'll have to catch up and you can jump my rig off something SD in your neck of the woods. Seeing that we have never actually jumped together........
