Glider Batteries and Chargers by Grider Pirate
VSLA? A123? Cycling chargers?? I think this subject should have it's own thread. Unlike transponders, we almost all need them.

Pegasus or ....? by Mike125
I'm looking to move up a level from my ASW 15. Ideally, I'd like an LS 4 but they are few and far between. A couple of Pegasuses (Pegasi?) are listed on W&W and seem to be reasonably priced for what you get. I am in the US and am aware of the 3000 hr issue but don't fly enough for that to be a...

Drop a day option for US regionals by [email protected]
Pilots all: The US rules have for several years had the option of "drop your worst day" scoring. So far noone has used it, but I for one would like to give it a try. Most of all, I think pilots will like it a lot. Yes, in the end somebody has to win, but that horrible feeling of now Im screwed...
