Newest Sailplane in the world on display at the 2016 SSA convention by SF
The statement that the Ventus 3 would be at the Greenville convention is completely my responsibility. At the time I made it I thought that it was true. As soon as I was made aware that it was not true, I pointed RAS readers to a list of what was actually going to be at the show, on Facebook. ...

2016 SSA convention, So how did we do? by Tom (2N0)
Excellent job! Exhibit hall: 1. Lots of space and a great lay out for the gliders. 2. The RVs were not out of place (and they had some great deals) 3. The exhibitors were spread out enough that you had to go to visit them all to see who was there. 4. I think the exhibit hall would have been worth...

Dry vs. wet sanding by [email protected]
Is there any reason that PPG concept can't be sanded dry? I need to knock down some bad orange peel (because I'm still learning how to paint). I was thinking about using some 500 to knock down most of the orange peel, and then move to finer grits (wet) take out the sanding scratches before...

Minden hanger for rent by xcnick
It is a square hanger so an assembled 15 meter wing will fit corner to corner. Hate to see it go to a power plane which can fit a T hanger.
