Cobra Trailer Jam-nuts (loose) by [email protected]
Don't know why, but the last 3 Cobra trailers I have seen all had very loose wing spar jam nuts. When a wing is rolled in, it's spar passes under a horizontal cross bar and when the tip is lowered into the floor saddle, the spar rises slightly to firmly come to rest under the horizontal cross...

Becker AR4201 friction between frequency adjustment knobs by [email protected]
I have such a radio, and when you turn one of those concentric knobs, the other one turns too, unless you hold it firmly. Thus it takes two hands to turn only one knob. How can I adjust it work as intended?

WTB DG-101 trailer nosecone by [email protected]
I'm adapting a trailer to my DG-101 and would like to buy a molded nosecose to act as a forward stop in the trailer. The existing nosecone was fitted to a Jantar Standard 2 and has quite a different shape. Thought I'd check here in the remote chance that someone might have one. Matt

Flying with Parachutes by John Huthmaker
I'm just starting out with soaring. Simple question for you guys. How many of you fly with an emergency parachute? It looks like they cost around $2000 online. Pretty steep price; although the cost is insignificant if it saves your life. Is this something I should be looking to purchase?
