More trailer tire/wheel issues by [email protected]
I pulled my Cobra up the Sierras to Sparks, Nv and then blew the right tire (6” of tread separated and took the fender off too). Tire and wheel were Not even warm. Put on the spare and drove the final 20 miles. Next morning I jacked up one wheel and took 2 tires and rims in and got 6 ply trailer...

Antennae by John McCullagh[_2_]
I have a new glider on order and naturally I want to build-in all the things it will need over the next ten years at least, rather than adding things later piecemeal. In the non-carbon part of the fin I plan to have a radio aerial, a transponder aerial and a Flarm aerial. However it seems that...

No LXNav TrafficView Manual??? by John DeRosa OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
The new LXNav TrafficView has been available for a while now. But where the heck is the manual? I know, I know, it is similar enough to the older FlarmView so we can "just figure things out". But a new expensive product and no manual available at startup? Really? One thing we have all...

what is that noise? by gregv
Hello, I fly a 1979 Nimbus 2 carbon, and since a few years I hear a cracking noise behind me. That noise occurs more often after a few hours of flight, maybe related to temperature change with altitude. You can hear the cracking noise in this...

Glidersource ads- No response? by [email protected]

Kudos.. to the R11 organizers, CDs and pilots for pulling of a difficult contest. Poor weather resulted in 4 days of contest flying including one California Grand Prix task. The last day was the only real racing day, won by John Cochrane "BB" in his ASH-31mi. It shows a classic Minden/Truckee...

Ventus rigging advice, please? by John McLaughlin
I've recently started flying a Ventus2. I can't rig the thing without a lot of struggle. The trouble is, there's a cover above the spars and you can't see anything once the first wing is in. I struggle to get the second wing to fit, never knowing whether it's a bit too high or a bit too low....

Supplemental oxygen by 2G
The other day a couple of pilots were treating 123.3 as their private chat line which I was forced to listen to so I could hear my friend's hourly position reports. One of the things one kept (repeatedly) talking about was having to descend to 12,500 to "reset" the 30 minute clock. This is entirely...

Flarmview versus Flarmview 57 by [email protected]
I'm interested in purchasing a Flarmcore soon and I'm curious which of the displays would work best. I have a spare 57mm hole in the panel now, so the Flarmview 57 seems to be the simplest installation. I'm curious if having the extra buttons on the original Flarmview make this device easier to...

Wanted urgently: A DAR-T that is prepared to help by Ross[_3_]
I have purchased a sailplane in the US and am struggling with German authorities to get it certified due to their requirements. The aircraft in question hasn't flown for 8 years and is not airworthy and I require a statement from a DAR-T saying just that. Is there anyone that can help me on this?

Fanny packs for baleout by [email protected]
I've started carrying my Inreach in a fanny pack. They are cheap, and if rotated so the pack lies between parachute straps, offer a comfortable way to keep safety equipment attached in the event of a baleout.

Apollo and our own. by Karl Striedieck[_2_]
There must be a good number of our crowd out there that contributed their talents to getting us to the moon via the Apollo program. One is Roy Cundiff (formerly “R1” Ventus) who was an engineer on those mighty first stage F1 engines that put out 7.5 million pounds of thrust, consuming 318,000...

Becker AR4201 transmit volume low by John Foster
I just installed a Becker AR4201 that I picked up used from the UK (frequency spacing change from 25 to 8.33). I have it paired with a Peiker TM 170 I got from W&W based on their compatibility statements on the website. It will transmit voice, but it is extremely soft/quite and the receiver needs...

Cambridge CPT 505 Variometer by John Foster
I'm in the process of building a new instrument panel in my glider and am at the point of hooking it all back up. When I have the power cable plugged in to the back of the CAI CPT 505 and turn the power on, the needle deflects to -10kt, and if I switch it to 2x, then the needle deflects to -5kt. ...
