Has anyone else noticed how many Discus 2 and Ventus 2 gliders have been coming up for sale lately on W&W? Is this because of folks moving up to the new V3, or is there some other reason?

GPS Flight Recorder Calibration Time by Paul Remde
Hi Soaring Pilots, Calibration Time! The IGC requires that GPS flight recorders be calibrated every 5 years. Now is a good time to send yours in for calibration. Discounts are offered for calibrating multiple GPS flight recorders at the same time. I turn-around most units in 24 hours.
