iSoar - Mac native analysis and planning software by [email protected]
iSoar is a Mac OS program, not an iOS (iPhone) mobile app yet unfortunately. There are other options for iOS such as SeeYou, etc for flight review (I believe).

ASG-29 vrs V3 ... observations from WGC Benalla pilots. by [email protected]
OK, this is a real shot in the dark. To the ASG-29-18 and JS1-18 Benalla pilots who had a chance to thermal and run with the S-H V3s, how do they compare? A tip of the hat to Greiner; most impressive a 10-12 year old design is still scoring well.
