FLARM A minimum spacing to ADS-B Antenna? 1 foot !?!? by OHM Ω
Maybe this has been covered in RAS but I couldn't find it. I looked through two documents about the spacing of FLARM antennas, specifically the FLARM A and ADS-B antennas. Obviously, the thing to avoid is the transmitting of FLARM data (A antenna) interfering with ADS-B (or GPS) reception. The...

Blow holes vs turbulaator tape. by Jonathan St. Cloud
Just curious if there is research that compares blow holes versus tabulator tape as to effectiveness and drag? i.e., are the bow holes worth the maintenance or is tape effectively just as good? Does the new Ventus have tape or blow holes?

MAT's are dangerous by [email protected]
Let's go back in time to August 4th 2010. The sport of soaring lost a well respected man named Chris O'Callaghan. It was the 4th fatal sailplane accident in 4 weeks. This was a wake up call to many pilots operating without Flarm or Parachutes. Chris was flying on the return leg of a task when...

I was just looking at the entry list for Benalla and did not see Dick Butler's name as entered for the Open Class. Bill Gawthrop's name is listed for the Open Class, but Dick's is not. Does anyone know if that was just an oversight, or did Dick withdraw, or is he just entering late? I do hope he...

K21 trim tightening? by [email protected]
The trim in our club's K21 is no longer effective and I suspect it is probably a simple matter to tighten up a nut somewhere below the front seat so there is more friction on the trim lever. If anyone had a moment to confirm my suspicion and had any pointers, that would be appreciated. Mark
