Help Casio E100 by Bob
I have a Casio E100 (Wife's old PDA) running CE 2.11. It has 16 meg of memory. I would like to use it to (at least) download the flight files from an LX5000. I would love to use this as a cockpit management system. Any ideas. Bob

Borgelt B40 question by tuno
The B40 that came with my glider has this curious fault: after experiencing an updraft of 10 knots or greater, the rapid, high-pitched (i.e. "saturated") audio tone gets "stuck" and continues indicating 10+ knots until the B40 registers a negative value (sink). Has anyone else encountered this...

L-Nav & Model 20, What's It Worth? by Brian Iten
On the used market front, what is a good price to pay for a used L-Nav and Model 20 logger? I think the L-Nav has the latest program installed. The GPS/Nav display is not included in the sale and I am not sure if a vario is part of the deal either. Thanks in advance, Brian

Glider vs. Power Pattern Bank Angle? by Jim Vincent
In power, they're taught to fly patterns with very little bank angle, whereas in gliders we're taught to bank at about 45 degrees or so. I well understand the rationale for banking steeply in gliders, but why are power pilots taught to do shallow turns? TIA for the explanation. Jim...
