Newbie question by Bill Gribble
Completely daft newbie question that I'm hoping will have a simple answer. Mention is frequently made of the term L/D, which I know is an abbreviation of Lift / Drag. For example, the L/D cited in an advert for a Ka6 recently was "L/d 33" If L/D is the Lift/Drag ratio, why are the figures...

There was a story in S&G some years ago about a ASW 20 sucessfully landed without damage by use of flap changes; the pilot had read the manual. Following the fatal crash of a Cessna 150/150 hp two plane, due to a burned throughj elevator cable, two of us tow pilots experimented with pitch trim on...

Winch Way Is Up !! by Craig Freeman
It's intriguing how much attention any post about winch launching seems to generate here on RAS. I must admit I, like most here in the USA, cried "foul" or was it"fool" any time one would suggest that winching could be a viable alternative to the much perferred aero tow. Shame on me. Perhaps it's...

Cleaning a 3-way TE probe by Jack Glendening
I have a vertical-stabilizer mounted TE probe of the type that has 3 ports: ram, static, and venturi. I have been having problems with my varios and LNAV and had previously checked out the plumbing but had only looked at the "outside" end of the TE probe itself, which I remove after each flight. ...

News Flash: You don't need elevator control ! by nowhere
Yes, according to Peter Garrison's "Aftermath" column in the November issue of "Flying" you don't need to connect your elevator control! I quote: "the NTSB report does not comment on the fact that a disconnected elevator does not make an ASW-20, or for that matter any other airplane, unflyable. The...

Canopy repairs by Jay Todd
OK - I've done the Google search on this subject, printed out all the suggestions, purchased the Acrifix and even have a beat up old canopy to practice on before I work on the real thing. My question is - which Dremel tool is best to use for shaping the cracked area. Most of the cutters look like...
