Gary Itner by Dan Marotta

ADS-B or just Mode S for class E airspace? by [email protected]
Hi all, Sorry to start yet another ADS-B discussion, but I'm wondering about the value of it to a glider that doesn't fly in airspace that requires it. I have a Mode S transponder, so I believe I will continue to be 'visible' to both ATC and TCAS systems. (I am flying through some areas that are...

Trailer Covers-will that eliminate condensation inside ? by [email protected]
I saw a Trailer cover offered. Seems to cover quite nicely a standard Cobra trailer. Color is white. I wonder if this a solution to reduce or eliminate formation of condensation inside the trailer walls, especially metal ones. I would assume that since the top and side walls are somewhat insulated...

LS 8A Aileron Removal by svelusive
According to the LS 8 Manual to remove the ailerons you loosen the 10mm nut on the fixed bearing #3. I can't see any way to get a wrench, socket into the nut. Is there a special tool required?

Computer set-up for Condor 2 by John Foster
Any recommendations for where to get/what computer to get that would run Condor 2 well. Also thinking of trying Oculus Rift with it at some point. Don't want to spend a whole lot of money on this though. Thanks.

Tow Immunity Syndrome by Bob Youngblood
Our tow pilot seems to be suffering from a new disease that we have diagnosed as TOW IMMUNITY SYNDROME. I guess this happens when you get a bit older and don't see things as you once did. Let me describe the symptoms and please let me know of a remedy. First, he has lost a bit of spunk, shows up...

Want to go fly but "on call" by [email protected]
Want to go fly, but on call, any solutions? Cell phone is obviously out, don't want to talk on the out while flying and they don't work much above pattern altitude anyway. Willing to land in order to call back, just need a notification. Old fashioned pager? Any other means? Thanks 😁

lightweight Libelle 201b by bertvaneyken
For the e-libelle modification it has to be as light as possible. I've reviewed 7 w&b bulletins so far and evaluated their damage history. If one throws out those lead batteries we'll get to 206kg but not below 200kg... The average is about 215kg, no real correlation with repairs. Anyone...
