iPhone X and iGlide - the verdict is in. by waremark
As owner of an Oudie IGC (also Samsung S8, Kobo Glo HD, and LX 9000) I think brightness has ceased to be a major issue. I have never encountered any conditions in which the Oudie (pointed at me) is difficult to read. What is the relevance of looking at the instrument at an angle?

Glider Insurance by LAX

DG 100 canopy? by Pete[_9_]
Hi all, I'm looking for a DG 100 canopy used or new in the USA. I thought I would try here as this Group also helped me find the glider that needs the canopy. It's old, scratched, and poorly installed. There's a lot of excess "goop" around the frame. Seems like new one would be best. I know it may...

motorglider engine test by [email protected]
I need to do a short test run on my ventus 2cxm engine. The fuselage is on its cobra dolley in my garage, and I can wheel it into my driveway and tie the tail to a post. I'm nervous about this, in case there is some pitfall I haven't considered. Has anyone done an engine test run like this?

Gosh, the FAA gave me the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award recently for my 50 years of safe flying since my first solo in 1967 and for my contributions to aviation training and safety. I sure appreciate that recognition but . . . no, wait . . . I'm still just the kid on the gliderport! ...
