High Vis Markings by Casey[_2_]
With all the posts regarding collision avoidance electronics, I was wondering about high vis markings. Seems like many of us put thousands of dollars into electronics and nothing into high vis markings. Kinda hard to believe the infinite wisdom master has not mandated it, and especially since a...

Help Needed: LXNAV S80 and Remote Stick grip by ZP
I have an S80 and just installed the remote stick. Everything is working fine except the sc glide/climb momentary switch. Pressing it cycles through the menus as if it is wired together with the 'enter' button. It doesn't change between climb and cruise modes as expected. I have auto-switching...

Reducing PPG Concept Urethane by [email protected]
I shot my first batch of PPG concept today, and it shot slower (and had more orange peel) than I expected. When I was shooting the primer, I accidentally over reduced it - and discovered that it sprayed much better. Smoother finish and faster spray. I mixed the PPG per the instructions: 4...

Case Study Near Mid Air Glider and C421 - Benefits of PowerFlarm and Transponders by WaltWX[_2_]
With all the discussion about FLARM, ADS-B and the Pros/Cons, I thought the time is right to bring some facts into the discussion. Last September I had a near mid air with a C421.
