US Nationals Nephi Sunday 6/26/2016 11:17 am by Tom Kelley #711
Pilots meeting went along really good. F8, Bill, gave a good tall on strong lift and strong sink. To sum it up its big sky and one needs to be alert. Its a Assigned task heading over to Mt. Pleasent then down to Panglich and somewhere else or 2. My task sheets in my glider, I am not their. Nephi...

Second HP-24 first flight by Bob Kuykendall
For those who have been following the HP-24 kit sailplane project, on Saturday 25 June we did the first flight of Doug Gray's w/n 24-03. The flight itself was unremarkable; the controls were effective and well harmonized and glider showed good stability throughout the tested regimes. The test...

3rd day US Nationals Nephi by Tom Kelley #711
Folks, it's late(10:30 pm) and we have been challenged. Heat. Yep heat as in hot and when it's hot at 5,000 msl, the density altitude is somewhere around Mars and the tow planes work hard to get us up. Our day starts around 8 am at the airport. Prepping, watering and then the pilots meeting at 10...

Question from the back of the room. I recently watched ,"Sunship Game" and I was wondering whatever happened to George Moffett's Nimbus,"XX" Pretty advanced for its time. Although adverse yaw must have been awful. Thanks.

Nationals – who cares? by Chris
Many of us do. But we are our worst enemies when it comes to promoting our sport. 3 classes are competing at the highest level contest in the USA and there is not a single report on the SSA website. The worldwide audience is at a loss when it comes to understanding what is going on at this airfield...

want to buy Zaon MRX by [email protected]

FLARM/Flarmnet question by Hartley Falbaum[_2_]
I just had chance to use my new Flarmview at the Region V So contest. Spotted gliders OK. I had installed the proper flarmnet database, converted via the fln2flx utility. All I saw was the radio ID of gliders-never the Comp ID. Is there a way to confirm that the flarmnet database installed? Thanks...

Problems with PowerFLARM 6.06.8249 firmware by kirk.stant
Ever since loading up the new PF software back in April, the two PF users in my club have been seeing greatly reduced performance (detection range dropped from 5- 8 miles down to about 1 mile) and the flarmnet ID feature no longer works (now we both get something like "94C" for the other glider ID...
