Gents, Aaron Thomson here. I used to run Morgan Valley Soaring in Morgan UT.. After starting a career with Delta Air Lines and starting a family I have returned to soaring and recently purchased a Nimbus 2B. I've had my first successful flight but noticed something odd about the flaps and the...

trailer painting by mike davis
It is time to repaint my aluminum cobra trailer. I'm not planning to spray it myself but does anyone have any thoughts on using an auto body shop to do the work? Could I do some of the prep myself? Any idea about the cost? Thanks

Grob 109 by Brien
Thinking of buying a 109A need to know the good the bad and the ugly of it. Just what do I need to know about it, I have had people say stay away from it others say it is good if you know how to fly it ?

alternative to iGlide for iPhone (6 plus) by Bob Pasker
I have been using iGlide now for about 20 flights, and I really don't like it very much. It is riddled with bugs (which I have duly reported to Butterfly only to hear "yes, we're aware of that"), the user experience is terrible (and I speak as someone who has worked in user interaction and user...

Cobra Trailer Top Repair by [email protected]
This last June, on my way to Parowan, UT, the aluminum top on the trailer moved forward at the hinge. I found out it was a known problem and also was told there is a fix at Parowan. Dave Norwood has done several and was able to repair mine in several days. He did an excellent job and the stainless...

Discus 2b versus LS-6c by [email protected]
Which would you buy and why? Everyone probably knows the Discus 2b, but in case you're not familiar with the LS-6c, it has 15m and 17.5m tips, automatic control hookups (unlike the 6a and 6b), and a safety cockipit (unlike the 6a and 6b).

Modifying Std Libelle with Tost Lilliput Wheel by [email protected]
Has anyone done a 337 to modify a Std Libelle with the Tost 4" wheel? Looking tech data for a 337 or a precedent of someone that has already done this.. I know the Tost Wheel Selection Chart shows compatibility and Streifeneder is ok with the substitution but that's probably enough to satisfy the...

500K Stickers by Brian Stevens
Have you ever pulled up behind a car at a stop light and seen one of those 13.1 or 26.2 sticker? Those arrogant runners... We can do better. I have been thinking about a new business opportunity, and think it would be neat to "advertise" our own accomplishments. Why not have 300K/500K/750K/1000K...

Alfonso and I-75 by [email protected]
I recall the days long past when Alfonso Jurado,E9, was flying in Cordele and had to make an off field landing close to the Cordele airport. If any of you know how the Cordele airport is situated you will know that interstate 75 runs to the east of the airport. After realizing that he could not...

LS-3 seatback wanted by Bill Palmer
I recently purchased an LS-3, without the adjustable seatback. Apparently the previous owner was "a big dude" so it was removed as he didn't need it. Then it was lost to time and space. I'm on the other end of the size spectrum and would prefer one vs. a big cushion. If anyone knows of an LS...

PW-5 longitudinal pitch oscillation by [email protected]
Am considering buying a PW-5 as my first single-seater for a variety of reasons, but the one aspect I don't like is that in rough air the tail is easily pitched up in flight from unexpected gusts once I'm off tow. This one's been weighed & balanced recently and its CG is perfectly centered within...

Schweizer 1-34 trailer fittings by kirk.stant
Our club (SLSA) has a nice 1-34 that we want to encourage XC in; however our trailer (a basic Schweizer multi-glider open trailer) is missing the fittings needed to secure the glider to it - fuselage tiedowns, tail holders, etc. The rest of the trailer is in OK shape, so we want to make up new...
