Newer Tost hydraulic brake issue by [email protected]
The Tost hydraulic brake cylinder mounted to my stick failed on my last flight. I've emailed Tost, but so far no response, which certainly might be virus related and therefore understandable. The brake worked fine before takeoff but before landing there was zero resistance when squeezing the...

OLC League schedule by [email protected]
Received an email from Reiner Rose, saying the OLC League, scheduled to start April 18-19, has been postponed until May 30-31 worldwide. I assume this means only 13 weekends for scoring instead of 19 as in past years.

Condor is exasperating by jp
My difficulties with Condor may well be due to my using bootcamp into Windows 10 on my Mac. However, I have copied a new landscape directory into the c:/Condor2/Landscapes directory and it is not presented for selection on the Tasks screen. I also just purchased an additional glider (ASK-21) and...
