Hard Deck by Jim White[_3_]
Time to change the subject line? I have been thinking about the hard deck idea. Possibly fine in flat land soaring but I am not sure it adds much when ridge flying. I perceive another problem: Turbos are even more dangerous near the ground than pure gliders. I may be happy in my 27 at 500ft but...

Proper Way to Insert Multi-Probe by Dan Marotta
When I got my Stemme, I asked my instructor if there was a proper technique to insert the multi-probe in the nose.* He said to just push it in until I hear/feel a metallic click.* That's worked just fine for the past two years but I wonder if I should lubricate the thing, say with Vaseline or...
