Is it possible to sort flights by glider model on the OLC? by Soartech
Seems like this would be great info to have when comparing your glider (and piloting) to others of the same kind. Is this possible? Do they let you? Or do you have to sort through every competitor in the world until you find ones with the glider type you want to examine?

Flightline 760 Radio by Tony[_5_]
Is anyone out there using these radios? Thanks to limited archive searchability all I was able to find was a post a while back from Tim Mara saying that he had sold about 50 of them. I'm curious what the real world power drain is on them from a 12V sealed lead acid battery. Spec is a bit high at...

Feeding Two Devices from PowerFLARM by [email protected]
Yeah, I know this has been discussed. I've researched it. But I can't find this specific question answered. I want to connect my PowerFLARM Portable to my LX FLARMView AND to my Kobo running TopHat. I don't think I need or can use a K6 Mux box: I'm not combining multiple inputs into a common...

When traveling with a motor glider out west ( USA), what do people do, when trying to get their O2 bottles refilled? I noticed in the notes on airport services available at smaller airport, that most have no O2 refilling services available. Carrying a full size tank in car to fill from is not an...
