Hi Folks, Looking for some crowd wisdom (or individual wisdom) on the subject of putting seals on a previously unsealed glider. I have an SZD-45 Ogar motorglider, which is a lot of fun to fly except for a couple of things. The main one is that the stick control forces get really high as the...

I noticed the Ventus 3 took 3 of the top 5 in the 18 meter class. Looks like to me they have come up with a very fine ship. I haven't seen one in person yet, look forward to that day.

Flarm with External display by [email protected]
I have a portable FLARM that I may need to install in a loaner glider. Installation will be awkward but could be much better if I use an external display that I have surplus from my brick installs. Has any one done this and can you advise how it worked out? Thanks UH

Thermalling Primary Gliders by [email protected]
I'm interested to know if primary gliders were capable of soaring flights or if they only flew short hops. The SG 38, for example, has a sink rate of 1.3 m/s so in theory it's possible. I'd be very interested to hear of any stories about soaring one of these gliders.
