There really aren't any harsh words there. It's not a beginner technique and the video makes it all look quick and easy. The reality is that in any decent wind, things can and will often go wrong. Packing up is the least of the issues.
No in deed, packing is the base of everything.
To be a bit more detailed this time:
"Warning: everything what you see and read from this account may guide you into danger and or death, especially if you are pretty stupid!"
If I would just take my information from youtube and I would see for example russians parachuting themself out of an airplane with some unknown cyrillics writen in the subtext ... and I would just try to do the same on the base of the video without trying to understand subtext or to find further information... than I realy would be happy for all mankind if the fate takes me out of the game, preventing my style and DNA will find its way into next generation. As I am a big fan of the darwin awards.
My work brought me to differn't countries also those with american way of safety instructions you have to listen for a whole day waisting with warnings like:
- don't pet the poisonous snakes...
- don't leak on the electric power station ...
On the end of these days you fill a fake test to show you have understood, whose only purpose is to take the directors out of reponsibility ... but people will go on dieing every month due to stupid accidents and no warning sign will help.
The only way to solve this is to not just take your information form youtube or other fakes, but to seriously teach people to behave self reflecting, which is the way we do where I come from and which in fact makes very few people have to die due to stupid accidents.
In short and our case this means read the information in the sub text, where you see in our example:
"Siehe Bericht in der Videobeschreibung" which means:
"READ THE FUCKING MANUAL"
And I don't feel responsible when a newbe thinks it is cool to just take part of two year old information/video and just spam video links opening new topics without any comments. Here are the old comments and manuals missing:

But yes, I know just looking videos and spaming comments below is so much easier than reading and reflecting first or even creating something yourself.
Sorry being emotional about that, but I am as big part responsible for safety issues, but having stupid people dieing is not part of my responsability, good luck.
