04' Cobra metal top leaks by [email protected]
How does the water sealing system on a Cobra normally work? On the inside lower edge of each side there is a small trough. (A great place to store the TE probe, etc.) If I look closely, there are small high water marks in there. Also drain holes at the front and rear ends. (One of which was...

Are air filters necessary on Pitot, static or TE lines? by Pete[_9_]
Hey all, I have noticed some gliders have what look like small fuel filters spliced into the tubing prior to avionics. I imagine this is a safeguard to dust, etc entering the avionics. Seems to make sense eventually what's outside is going to get inside.... However, is this necessary? I see a lot...
