Nimbus 2b, looking for a set of covers by Aaron Thomson
Just thought I would ask if anyone has a full set of Nimbus 2 covers they would be willing to sell or if no longer needed. I'm just exhausting the option of purchasing used covers before I fully commit to buying a new set of covers. Thanks, Aaron Thomson N71TT Nimbus 2B S/N 136

How to teach XC with lead/follow technique? by [email protected]
We are trying to help teach XC to our fellow club members. I've heard of the Lead/Follow technique with an experienced pilot showing a student how to get around a course. Before we try it, are there any suggestions on how to best do it? I've heard that if the leader is higher up or in a higher...

UA 246 by mic pilot
I posted this in another thread, but think this needs some new air. It seems like this incident took place near teddy intersection at approx. 7000 msl? That’s just a really bad place to fly if you’re not talking to ATC, with or without a transponder. Teddy is major point on the JVL8 arrival...

Clearnav 2 and/or Cambridge 302 for sale by [email protected]
If anyone is interested let me know. The Clearnav II is presently mounted on a RAM mount. I either want to sell them as a package or the Clearnav II with wood stick grip by itself. If I can't sell them as a package i'll keep the 302 for now. Both came with a glider I recently purchased.

Solenoid valve by [email protected]
My Pegasus tail ballast bag sprung a leak last year. In the process of replacing it, I decided to also change the 12v electric solenoid valve as it was pretty corroded after years of use. The old valve had a 5/16 (.3125") orifice which drained the one gallon bag reasonably quickly. Unfortunately,...
