Which Transponder? by Ian Forbes
Hi All I am contemplating getting a transponder for our LS3a. It seems the choice is between either a 175W or 250W Becker "ATC 4401" unit or the Microair "T2000". Has anybody had first hand experience with any of the above? What were your experiences, which unit would you recommend?

In general, how different are the fittings in a Cobra trailer for different makes and models of gliders, 15M and Standard class? For example, what changes would be required to put an ASW20 into an ASW28, or Discus, or Ventus rigged Cobra trailer? Thanks for any advice, John

Tost internal Winch by HL Falbaum
Who out there uses the Tost winch for rewinding the rope into the tow plane? What procedure do you use? Do you stop at the end of the rope, then start up again when ready to launch, or do you have a slow 'rolling' start. Do you have problems with 'jerking' the glider and overrunning the rope? We...

Motorgliders (long) by M B
http://webpages.charter.net/engreenwell/ASA/DG400%20accident%20(Se im).htm seems to outline some of the advantages and disadvantages of a motorglider. I must say, however, that motorgliders seem to be a great idea to me mostly for self-launch/self-retrieve. In air restarts seem pretty sketchy,...

Motorgliders and gliders in US... by M B
Boy, if I were competing, I would look hard at buying a motorglider and then learn how to remove and install the engine correctly. It sure sounds like a win-win to me. Two gliders for the price of one? Hmmm...I guess I'd also want one with ballast so I could have that option with the motor...
