Flight following for sailplane XC flights? by Paul Villinski
Does anyone ever request flight following during long cross-country flights, in order to have ATC provide separation and keep an eye out? Or is this a ridiculous idea, especially given that you'd have to keep listening all afternoon? Would controllers provide radar service, or just have a good...

Schweizer SGS 2-33 Fatal Accidents? by [email protected]

Anyone done this? I copied 4 files from lxnav website to the SD card in my oudie. Then watched uros' video but the button for s7 isn't on my oudie. Do I need to connect the s7 for this to appear or have I done something wrong?

Dr Jack forecast high too low by [email protected]

Can ADS-B provide position information for Search and Rescue? by Paul Villinski
Wondering if ADS-B equipped aircraft have any advantage should they need search and rescue, given that they broadcast their ID and coordinates. Is positional information logged by the ground stations, and retained for any period of time, or is it "real-time" only? If retained, it seems that ADS-B...

Oudie starved for power by Matt Herron Jr.
Help! I run my Oudie from my V7 so that it gets all the flarm data from my Flarm Core. Unfortunately it tends to run out of battery power towards the end of the flight, even though the V7 is supplying juice. I measure the current draw of the Oudie in this setup and it came in around 160ma. I...

S-turns on final by Jonathan St. Cloud
Came across a blast from the past on youtube. There was a video of teaching s-turns for glide path control. Looked to be from the 40's. Not sure why they would teach this when a slip would be safer and more effective.
