Letter to the FAA by Walt Connelly
Before I send my letter to the FAA I'd like to ask if anyone has ever attempted to get them to see the light and end the use of Schweizer hooks on tow planes here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is a well known fact and clearly stated in the SSA/SSF and FAA circulars and...

Color Platforms for Top Hat/XCSoar by [email protected]
What color devices are pilots using for Top Hat/XCSoar? I'm running Top Hat on a Kobo Glo (large eink gray scale--great readability) and a Dell Streak 5 (smaller screen, color, acceptable readability). If the Dell were a little brighter and larger, it would be perfect. Options seem to range from...

Adapting medical cannulas to work with an EDS? by Bill G
Has anyone figured this out? I want to be able to have cannulas for all my clients for flying near Aspen, but $8 a pop for someone who may only use it once is pricy. I noticed medical cannulas are only about $2-3. Has anyone figured an way to adapt them to an EDS? Thanks!

A Tale of Two Takeoffs by [email protected]
I have a secret. Well, like secrets in a Congressional Intelligence subcommittee, this one is probably known by several hundred people. But I haven’t written about it. Until now. But first, the lead in. A few days ago on the last day at the Cordele nationals, I dropped a wing on takeoff. The...

Splittng a GPS antenna to multiple devices by JS
Didn't want to further derail the thread about Trig TN72. This thread has been up before? It is possible and functional to use one GPS antenna for multiple GPS receivers. If you use GPS antennas that will only accept power of 3V you must put DC blockers on all but one receiver. The one receiver...

Installed my transponder this off season, passed the transponder check to make it legal. First flight with it yesterday. Called the local controlling agency to check it out. They had nothing on me, but they did once I cycled the transponder off and back on. I then realized that where the "ALT"...

Gap seals effectiveness study? by Bret Hess
Hi, we see lots of mylar gap seals and read lots of discussion of them. Does anyone know of an engineering study that quantifies their effect on sailplane wings or other wings? Nothing pops up quickly in Google. I'm wondering how much science there is to this practice. I'm hoping for more than...
