Anyone get hassled for exceeding max car and trailer length? by Gordon Boettger
Looking at getting an RV (25' length). Combine that with a doubleseater glider trailer and I'm at 60'. I'm in NV, so I'm good, but going into OR I would be 10" over the legal limit. Anyone out there run into any issues with the "fuzz" for exceeding combined vehicle and trailer length? Thanks

Color Platforms for Top Hat/XCSoar by [email protected]
What color devices are pilots using for Top Hat/XCSoar? I'm running Top Hat on a Kobo Glo (large eink gray scale--great readability) and a Dell Streak 5 (smaller screen, color, acceptable readability). If the Dell were a little brighter and larger, it would be perfect. Options seem to range from...

Installed my transponder this off season, passed the transponder check to make it legal. First flight with it yesterday. Called the local controlling agency to check it out. They had nothing on me, but they did once I cycled the transponder off and back on. I then realized that where the "ALT"...

My Oudie IGC will too often break the squelch with a hideous noise on both my panel radio (an old Dittel) and also most any handheld that comes within about 12" of the Oudie. Anyone else seeing this issue? Thanks, Evan 6E

CAI 302 startup noises? by Echo
After powering up today, I noticed something from the 302's speaker that seems new. Could have been there all along and I'm just noticing, but seems odd to me. After the wind up and wind down audio vario sound, maybe 3-5 seconds later, there's a single LOUD tone lasting about one second. The heck...

Has anyone figured this out? I want to be able to have cannulas for all my clients for flying near Aspen, but $8 a pop for someone who may only use it once is pricy. I noticed medical cannulas are only about $2-3. Has anyone figured an way to adapt them to an EDS? Thanks!
