A Talking Airspeed Indicator by Soartech
Last year I was looking for such a device to allow me to montitor my speed more easily on approach so I didn't have to glance at the panel during this critical stage of flight. I found this affordable, small box that plumbs into your pitot line and runs on 12V. It is made in England. I only turn it...

DG 400 and density altitude by gotovkotzepkoi
I am interested in how a DG 400 self launches at higher density altitude. For instance, an airport at 5000 ft on a warm day. Can anyone share their experiences on this?

Tow Plane Upsets...... by Walt Connelly
I have been towing for about two and a half years and have logged over 6,500 tows. Having recently experienced a couple of rather violent glider kiting incidents, one at about 300 feet AGL I decided to investigate the experiences of other tow pilots in these circumstances. I have spent several...

O2 and by quietpilot
Bouncing off a comment from another thread. a number of we "not in our 40s anymore" pilots are setting the O2 to kick in at 5000 msl. O2 is cheap. Clarity of mind at altitude - priceless! Being in the middle of my 40s myself. I recall spending time periodically in various smoke...

LX Zeus and PowerFlarm -- Communication Problem by C-FFKQ (42)
Hopefully someone has been through this exercise (successfully). I just received my PowerFlarm today and I'm installing it into the panel (that's no problem). The plan is to use the Zeus for the target display. There's a "Flarm" port on the back of the Zeus, but it's not RJ-45, like the port on...

LS4 aileron gap seal and mylar seal width by Eric Foertsch
A couple questions. I had ailerons removed for refinishing and now looking at maintenance manual to see what is needed for the gap seal.
