304 versus Discus B by Del Jensen
Two gliders have caught my eye; 304 with minden trailer and Discus B with Komet. Both about the same hours, roughly same age, 30k vs. 36k. I'm getting back into soaring after a twenty year break. I've got about 120hrs, a fair number of those hours in a Glasflugel 401. I'm big, but dropping...

Do you crab or forward slip landing in x-winds and why? When I was taught how to fly an airplane the crab method was used when I transitioned to gliders my instructor emphasized forward slip over crab. Years later I have established my procedures, but I thought this might be a useful discussion...

LXNAV Nano4 - Quick Review by Paul Remde
Hi, I received the first batch of Nano4 units yesterday. They have all been sold, but more should arrive in a week or 2. I'm extremely impressed with the Nano4. It is easy-to-use and the display of airports and airspace and FLARM data only makes the screen clear and uncluttered. It is a very...

One Man Rigger for Standard Cirrus with Eberle Trailer? by [email protected]
Because of the way the trailer opens, you have to walk the wingtip out so low that a standard one-man rigger doesn't work. Does anyone know of a one-man rigger that'll work for a Standard Cirrus and Eberle trailer? Thanks in advance! Chuck

Reachable landing sites in iGlide by [email protected]

There was a group for Pegase owners which unfortunately I can no longer find. Does anyone have a link to a parts list and an email for Centrair? I have managed to lose the emails from them when I replaced the trim spring. :(
