Glider insurance through AOPA... (USA) by [email protected]
All; I received a quote 20% less than what I had been paying through the SSA insurance program - Any other private owners have this happen, and did you switch? I have no problems with my current insurance, and Starr Aviation, the underwriter for the AOPA, is new to me. Still 20% is hard to pass...

The ridge was working! by JS
Daniel Sazhin declared and flew 1000k O/R today. Others had fun too. Very nice. Nobody there had trackers linked to glideport.aero, so it's an evening surprise. Jim

S-H Ventus light-bar flap position indicator by [email protected]
Some Venti (not all) featured an 8 position LED light-bar centered on the instrument panel hood which would identify flap position. What "electronics" are used under the seat pan on the flap handle mechanism to "switch" the LEDs? Are there 8 individual reflective sensors reading the flap positions?

Power Flarm Display by K m
Readers, Was wondering what pilots are doing for Flarm displays. Ive used an LXNav Flarm View for years but with the upgrades to SYM it seems a dedicated screen is redundant. I am in the process of off season maintenance and will probably ditch the Flarm View display unless I can figure out what it...

Fuselage lift by Jonathan St. Cloud
Wondering how much if any lift in gliders is generated from the fuselage in flight. There is a famous photo of a F-15 that landed with one wing gone due to collision. This of course was possible due to the lift generated by the F-15 fuselage. The Schleicher family of gliders had two new...

LX Adapter Cable by Dan Marotta
My new (to me) Stemme has an LS7007 Pro IGC installed but no data bases loaded. I see a 5-pin DIN connector on the panel near the control head but no cable came with the aircraft. Does anyone out there have a spare that they would like to sell or donate to the cause? -- Dan, 5J
