amusing in so many ways..:-) by tango4
'I'll be using no engine, just perfect aerodynamics and my skills' With a glide ratio of 1:3.8 his definition of 'perfect aerodynamics' leaves something to be desired I think. Ian "Mark Stevens" wrote in message...

amusing in so many ways..:-) - The plonker has landed ! by tango4
When is a wing not a wing? I've just watched Felix Baumgartner land live on television. He has a 1.5 m span 'wing' contraption strapped to his back. In effect we have a bloke who has succesfully talked a drinks company out of a chunk of money to fly a very low performance glider across the...

David Grah The flight had been arranged for Wednesday out of my home airport at Bishop, California, but the weather didn't look good enough that day for the flight I hoped for. The weather forecast looked better on Thursday, 10 July 2003, so, the flight would be that day. The main impact of the...

Harder to stall in a steep turn? by Jim
In his book Gliding, p100, Derek Piggott writes: "In most modern gliders, the elevator power is not adequate to pull the wing beyond the stalling angle in a steep bank and it is only just possible to reach the pre-stall buffet with the stick right back. This is very different from straight flight...

235 Maule for towing by Jim Harper
Hi. For reasons unrelated to soaring, I am in the market for a Maule, M(x)-235 (where x= 4,5,6,or 7). I am fairly active in my local club and we occasionally find ourselves short a tow plane. There is an STC'd tow hook for the thing, so I wanna know: Anyone ever tow with or behind a Maule 235? I...

Triple TE probes, failures by cernauta
I have seen many (including mine!) Total Energy probes fail: hairpin cracks in the carbonfibre tube, in the area that fits most deeply into the plug (in the fin of the glider). The terminal pin, made of aluminum and glued to the inside of the tube, then is not retained correctly... and it may stay...

On Scott Richmond's third flight in his newly purchased ASW-24E, at about 500ft, the motor stalled. He had already turned 90 degrees to the right, he turned another 90 towards the airport, did several PIOs, maybe pulling on the manual starter cable, then stalled and spun into an orchard 600 yards...

Volkslogger - Shut off the memory warning buzzer? by BJen
I fly with the sample rate on my VL set to give me about 9+ hours of data recording. That's sufficient for two normal flights, and I usually dump it after every flight. However, the thing begins complaining about low memory when it has 8 hours left, and it keeps complaining every few minutes. ...

Higher Reynold's number generally means higher efficiency. Therefore, there may be some small...
