Allstar SZD-54 Perkoz Info? US Dealer? by [email protected]
Hello, trying to get some information together on this glider for club purchase consideration, but I cannot find a US dealer for it. Am I just missing an obvious one? Does anyone have any first-hand experience with this glider--observations on how suitable it would be to replace a club Grob 103?...

OLC scoring errors by Tim Taylor
I don't usually look closely at the OLC scores for flights but on a recent flight I was given a very short triangle that didn't make sense. When looking closely, I noticed that some legs were scored shorter than they should have been by several km. The triangle was scored at about 15 km rather...

LX9000 File system corruption by 2G
Today I turned on my LX9070 and got a message that the file system was corrupted and the unit would enter the Safe Mode with very limited navigational functions included no flight logging. Indeed, it was so limited that it was basically useless. I flew with a paper map instead. After flying I...

Safelog by jp
I've been using Safelog, by Dauntless, for several years and I like it a lot. It requires a subscription and has both web-based and local computer components - both can be used. It is customizable easily and has what seem to me to be good search functions. I use it to keep track of my currency...

Hawk Wind by [email protected]
Has anyone any experience yet with the new Lxnav Hawk Wind program? Sounds superficially to me like it might be an alternative to the Butterfly wind solution which is no longer readily available. And this program seems to avoid some of the Butterfly installation challenges?

Too much air in the gas tank?? by kinsell
https://www.avweb.com/aviation-news/zeroavia-hydrogen-test-bed-crashes-after-off-airport-landing/?MailingID=604 If this was a "safe, off-airport landing", I'd sure hate to see a dangerous off-airport crash. Anytime you rip a wing off, I think that crosses the line between the two.

help with an ILEC SB-9 by [email protected]
I bought a glider which had been in storage for some time. It has an ILEC SB-9 vario which does not appear to be functioning. When I power on the vario, the needle climbs to the one knot up position and stays there continually while beeping. It does this regardless of which position the mode...

padding in Cobra trailer by BobWa43
The carpet in my Cobra trailer is shedding badly. I would like to replace or cover it. Open to any ideas on how to remove the old carpet or can you just put some new material on top of the old? What material would be best? Soft felt, hard felt, carpet?

new SSA web site by Moshe Braner
The "new web site" is live, and it is very slow to load, and I can't find anything... Where did the state records go? And when I tried to login it made me spend much time training Google's AI via a "Captcha" - I hate those things with a white-hot passion! And then it rejected my password. (I...

Libelle Camelbak stowage by Martin Gregorie
A long while back somebody (Ian Molesworth?) mentioned "lashing a Camelbak under the beam supporting the stick" in a Standard Libelle. With the season visible on the horizon I'm wondering how he did that. There's obviously sufficient space available under the beam and little chance of fouling...

Comfortable Pilots Fly More by [email protected]
A perennial discussion, cockpit size and vs. pilot size. I stumbled onto this academic paper on pilot comfort that may or may not have been posted here in the past but I think what is most important is the conclusion that comfortable pilots fly more hours. When we are trying to encourage our club...

Weglide.org by pavel skrabal
Looks like new interesting project for storing IGC flights. I think prehistoric OLC needs some fresh blood competition. WiFi download of flights straight from LX computers again this summer?
