Schweizer 2-32 Sailplane W&B by Hilton
Hi, My first post to r.a.s. so go easy. :) I've been looking through the Manual (about 15 pages) and cannot find anything on the moment arms of the seats to use to determine the W&B. The Manual has an envelope diagram, but how do I do the calculations without the arms? Thanks,

Where are the CFIG's? by Michael
The advertisement for CFIG's recently posted, and the discussion it spawned, made me realize something. I have yet to see a soaring club that had enough CFIG's. I'm sure they're out there, but I bet they're not the norm. Some have waiting lists to join if you lack a glider rating. Some have...

Oskar Vierling BSW-Variometer power connections by Mark James Boyd
I just got one of these antique varios from New Zealand, no less! Don't worry, I got an excellent price ;) It looks like there are only four connections to hook up. "A" is probably ram air. "S" is probably static. Then there are two power wires, unmarked (uh oh). The tape on the wires says...

Drag of LS3 compared LS3a. by Peter Warburton
Dick Johnson found that the LS3a he tested, had a higher sink rate over the whole polar, relative to the LS3. He found the 'a' version to have a 6mm thicker airfoil. Was this just a specific aircraft difference, or are all LS3a's systematically inferior to the LS3's?
