Blanik L-13 Weight and Balance by Markus Graeber
We need to get a weight and balance done for our Blanik L-13. The manuals are not really helpful referring to percentage of MAC (mean aerodynamic chord) for the CG range without saying how much MAC is nor where the reference plane/datum is (probably the wing root rib). I dug up the FAA type...

LX 7000 pro.igc by David Reilly
My LS 8 came with one of these. Since I've got some questions the manual does not seem to address...was wondering if someone who knows this unit might get back to me. In addition to some setup issues, it does not want to play nice with my OUDIE. I'm considering replacing it. But it does seem very...

I just purchased a glider housed in a 2002 Cobra trailer.

According to the owner this...

We have a plan to be racing PW-5s in Littlefield Texas on 18 to 22 August 2016. Littlefield is one of the few places in the world to combine high desert, big air, soaring with very landable terrain. If the weather is on, 6 to 12 knot thermals to 9 to 15 thousand feet are common. The land around...

LX-Nav S80 settings by Mark628CA
I just installed an LX-Nav S80 and remote stick controller, and while I am mostly impressed with the hardware, the operating manual is sorely lacking in many areas. When trying to enter the value for ballast weight, you have a choice between overload, weight, lb/sqft and kg/m2. Absolutely no...

Frigatebird soars for weeks without landing by son_of_flubber
The orginal paper published 74 1 JULY 2016 • VOL 353 ISSUE 6294 sciencemag.org SCIENCE has a lot more information. For example, their observed L/D was 23.6-19.1 between 500-700 m, but 14.3-11.7 at higher altitudes. I'm still trying to figure out how they stay aloft at night. A Tasty...

Our club Grob 103 Twin III canopy lock/unlock mechanism (front seat) failed on the ground when someone tried to open it.

Frigatebird soars for weeks without landing by Bret Hess
I also heard this on the news and was floored. Two months in the air. Ocean birds that can't rest on the water...so no landouts.

I have always used Simtec's 4981 white patching paste to repair small dings and minor cosmetic divots. However I use such small amounts over long periods of time, nearly the entire quart eventually turns to rubber and has to be trashed. I am looking for a lower quantity solution to avoid wasting...
