SeeYou by Waveguru
As soon as my subscription runs out, the program starts acting up. This really ****es me off. I paid for the program and the fact that they sabotage it to get you to purchase the upgrade is very disappointing. If I don't want the "improvements", the program that I paid for should still work. In my...

Test results LiFePO4 glider batteries after 6 years by SF
I started using K2 LiFeP04 batteries in my glider in 2010. I have had excellent results with these batteries. The electronics, especially the radio, enjoy staying above 12V, and I've never run out of power inflight with them.. This winter after taking some of the instruments out to have them...

Centrair Pegase in the US by Hans Bodde
Hi, I've read a couple of scary messages about the Centrair Pegase having a max limit of 3000h because of a glitch in translations of manuals. Does this still hold true, and if yes... (here comes...) are these going to be just fine when they get back to an EASA certification? Kind...

iGlide by John Foster
I just recently downloaded the "lite" version to play around with, and so far it is OK. However, I'm curious if some of the features I would like in it are just things that are in the higher level version like the "advanced" or "pro" version. For instance, when I look at the flight log, it...

Emailing contest flight log to scorer by [email protected]
From the cockpit, I want to transfer my flight log to my phone and email it to the contest scorer. If your IGC approved logger is Bluetooth equipped and it is paired to your phone, is it just a simple matter of downloading log to phone and emailing the file?
