Cambridge 302 problem: "Could not get FAT.(A)" while trying to download flight logs by Jason Armistead
Hi Our 302 unit with V2.50 firmware in it will not transfer Flight Logs after bombing out mid-way on a previous transfer. I am using a Windows 2000 PC with Utility V2.55, which has previously downloaded logs without any trouble. Now, when I click on the button to start the transfer, it does not

"Soaring" magazine on CD-ROM like EAA by Burt Compton
Dick Johnson told me of this: Can you imagine all of the 'Soaring" magazines from 1934 to present on a searchable CD-ROM? Could this be a profitable project for SSA? Anyone have experience in this and know the costs and potential profit? EAA did it - the following is from their web...

STS radio battery - USA by Ray Lovinggood
Where can I buy, in America, a replacement battery for an 'STS' brand hand-held radio? I think 'Batteries Plus' can get one for about $70. I've e-mailed 'Tropic Aero', asking if they have the batteries. I think I bought my last couple from them several years ago, but I don't know if they still...

SSA.org director announcement by Vaughn
I don't know anything about the new guy, but I would rather have a non-flying professional CEO that knows what needs to be done (and does it) than have some hotshot, contest-flying, badge-covered, amateur administrator screw up what little is left of our organization. Intrepid flyer or not, I wish...

GROB 102 by Vorsanger1
Looking for brake pads for the G-102 Does anyone out there know where one can find them? The US distributor says they are no longer available. Are they available somewhere in Europe, Germany perhaps ? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks Charles

Battery life...how to test? by Jim Kelly
I guess a 12v automotive light bulb would be a readily available load? Perhaps one of the electronic wizards here could suggest an appropriate wattage for a meaningful, safe, fast test? Also, is it valid to do a 'fast' test when a glider load is hopefully closer to 10 to 20 hrs? Can we presume...

Airfoil comparisons...? by Robert Ehrlich

Silver Badge Fun (?) - real challenges? by Nyal Williams
Location, location, location! A well-known US pilot had the gold altitude and distance certified when he had a total of 19hrs gliding time and had not yet done the 5-hr flight. He is a person for whom I have enormous respect, a natural, but he still had to have the location at that stage of the...

Super Cub towplane performance by Marc Arsenault
Well, we finally discovered that the propeller was totally worn out. We took the prop to our local Sensenich dealer-repairshop. The very helpful people of BL Aviation took no more than 15 minutes on the prop stand to measure out the defective "windmill". Actually, the measurement were quite...
