Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

New_PD_canopy__on_Vimeo

A local DeLand jumper shot this video shown below and shared with us, thinking he saw something fresh and new.

After an in-depth analysis, we know it is Albert Berchtold from PD flying – but what is he flying?  We asked a couple of the PD test jumpers hanging out at Skydive DeLand, but all we got was “it’s a parachute”.  Helpful.
We saw no logos, no labels and obviously got the “no comment”.   Intel anyone?

  1. Yep a copy of leia. PD never has anything original these days. I wonder who put that video out, lol, pd were not stupid because only you leak your r and d

  2. Pffffffffffff random photographer, PD too scared to post their own footage had to lie about that as well. Market leaders? lol

  3. C’Mon PD …at least let Jyro decide if he is willing to jump on the TESLA bandwagon and give up his patents before trying to copy his R&D….That’s just Cheap!!! it’s one thing if you’re a little guy trying to catch up, but when you are the so called biggest company in skydiving…you’d think you could afford to do your own R&D??? That is a Leia…just like the Peregrine was a rip off of Petra…and the Velo was a rip off of the FX….We KNOW that New Zealand is Cool as Shit, and that we have the most original ideas etc out there and that Imitiation is the most sincere form of flattery but seriously!! :-)

What do you think?
