Camouflaged/Hidden Field Obstructions by Bob Whelan[_3_]
In the spirit of the season - northern hemisphere winter, I mean, of course! - another RAS thread raised the question of how Joe Glider Pilot might go about assessing how much more field will be necessary if his chosen field has an obstruction along/near its downwind border. (They all do, of...

Future of 15m by John Foster
With the rise in popularity of 18m soaring, what do you guys think will be the future of 15m? Are there enough advantages of 15m over 18m for it to continue to have a strong place in competition? It seems most manufacturers are now making 18m sailplanes, that can be converted to 15m, but they...

iPhone X and iGlide - the verdict is in. by waremark
As owner of an Oudie IGC (also Samsung S8, Kobo Glo HD, and LX 9000) I think brightness has ceased to be a major issue. I have never encountered any conditions in which the Oudie (pointed at me) is difficult to read. What is the relevance of looking at the instrument at an angle?

DG 100 canopy? by Pete[_9_]
Hi all, I'm looking for a DG 100 canopy used or new in the USA. I thought I would try here as this Group also helped me find the glider that needs the canopy. It's old, scratched, and poorly installed. There's a lot of excess "goop" around the frame. Seems like new one would be best. I know it may...

motorglider engine test by [email protected]
I need to do a short test run on my ventus 2cxm engine. The fuselage is on its cobra dolley in my garage, and I can wheel it into my driveway and tie the tail to a post. I'm nervous about this, in case there is some pitfall I haven't considered. Has anyone done an engine test run like this?
