Similar to the GTi, this suit is easy to fly and makes a great first suit.
Great intro suit, although difficult to attach to a container. The birdman design requires rethreading the cutaway handles each time it is attached to a rig.
Great performance range and semi-rigid Mylar ribs to increase performance.
For intermediate pilots, the blade has a good performance range, is a good size for flocking and can be used for some acrobatics.
For experienced pilots, arm and leg wings are longer. Flatter wing to reduce drag and extremely low temporary vertical speeds can be reached (sub-20mph).
In 2010 birdman ceased to manufacture, but many of their suits are still sold on the 2nd hand equipment market.
