Metric Instruments by Roy Bourgeois
This may be a silly question - but are all metric altimeters configured with 'Zero at 6 O'clock' as I saw in France? I did not have trouble converting to meters/kilometers but I did have trouble quickly reading the altimeter with the zero at the bottom of the instrument face (especially on the...

Why the cool kids do it.... by Paul Villinski
Paragliding is the only soaring sport that's actually growing, and this pretty much explains it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjxkXNC31Z4 Or, any other vid by Jean-Baptiste Chandelier.

300lb (130kg) pilot by [email protected]
Hello everybody, I'm a instrument rated private pilot with 120 hours TT, all single engine piston A/C. I've been meaning to get a glider rating for a long time, mainly because I want to learn soaring and possibly do some light aerobatics on the cheap. However I've been steered away several times...

Tow hitch on Mercedes ML 350 Bluetech by [email protected]
I was quoted $3,500 to $4,000 by the Mercedes Benz dealer to install a factory tow hitch on to a ML 350 Bluetech 2011! I was wondering if anyone else had this happen and if so, where did you go to have the work done and were you happy with it? I live in Southern Cal.

Playing around with the pitch phugoid by [email protected]
You've blundered into the white room. You have primitive gyro guidance in the form of a turn rate indicator and so you are keeping the wings level, sort of. You are trimmed for 55 and the airspeed has just risen (alarmingly rapidly) to 85 and then temporaily plateaued there, staying constant for...

PowerFLARM choking on too many targets? by Matt Herron Jr.
Today I flew the first day of the Truckee FAI contest. We had about 14 planes in the launch area at once. All pilots had Flarm (and transponders) which was great. My setup is a PowerFlarm Brick (V6.02) with a FlarmVIew display (latest firmware, and powered by the brick). V7 and Oudie are also...

MATs by MNLou
Sean Fidler's contest tasking statistics were an eye opener for me. I did 2 contests last year and in both, only TATs were called. I didn't realize how common MATs were. I cannot find any information on the strategy to use to fly them competitively nor can I find anything that gives one an...

Just wondering what the timing of the next version of iGlide which will hopefully take advantage of the new iPhone 6 form factor. I have been using iGlide more and more and really enjoy flying with it. Its UI is BY FAR the easiest. Thanks in advance. Sean 7T

Cobra Trailer Spare Tire mount failure by Barny
Just a warning to check your trailer spare before a trip and along the way at gas stops. My 1998 trailer spare tire mount broke on a highway trip. The wheel is mounted on the frame that holds the glider nose in place. Two 8mm bolts welded to the nose cone frame hold the wheel to the frame. One...

Werker SLA batteries? (... better than PowerSonic?) by 2NO
I'm growing weary of my PowerSonic (PoS) batteries crapping out a few minutes after their 1 year warranty expries. Are Werker batteries any better? ... or are they essentially the same? The salesman at Batteries Plus said they pretty much stopped selling PS because they were having quality...

Compare MRX with PF Portable by Andy[_1_]
Now that my PowerFlarm PCAS performs as well or better than my Zaon (thanks to the latest firmware and the shorter antenna) Just last weekend I flew another side by side comparison between the ZAON MRX and my Power FLARM portable. For about half of the flight the Power FLARM indicated a...
