Rudder system failure by Nick Kennedy
After the Arcus rudder failure in Nephi this summer, and the Early JS1 rudder failure in Moriarty, both resulting in bailouts; I've been wondering..... In a 15 meter ship like a ASW 20 or LS3a or ASW27, does a hard over rudder failure mean its bailout time, or is it possible to "catch" the ensuing...

Pegase cruise speeds by Mark Williams
I have a share in a Peg 90. I feel that over 65/70kt the LD really drops off, though, I don't have evidence for this and hope it's higher :) What do others think? Mark

PowerFlarm range tool by [email protected]
Hello everyone. I just upgraded my PowerFlarm firmware from 6.42 to version 6.60 this past weekend. After flying I uploaded my .igc file to the PowerFlarm Range Tool to see if anything had changed for the better or worse. Interestingly, the 6.60 generated log file shows zero FLARM data points of...

Assistance with Dittel FSG40 by [email protected]
Hi all, I need assistance with an old Dittel radio for a club glider. The manual suggests that it's possible to make it compatible with an amplifier type mic instead of a 200ohm dynamic mic. It apparently involves adding two resistors to the amplifier circuit, does anyone have the details for...

Rear view camera for tow plane? by Waveguru
We have a mirror on each side of the fuselage in our PA-25, just in front of the cockpit, and they are both convex, but if the glider is off to the side very much at all, you loose sight of it. Has anyone installed a rear view camera with a screen in the cockpit like a lot of newer cars now...

Does anyone have experience with wing tip wheels on an ASW 27 ? I am thinking about installing wing tip wheels on my ASW 27 (actually about 6-9 inches inboard of the wing tip). I was wondering if anyone has done this and how did it work for them. Did it change the handling characteristics? I am...

DG-200 Water Valve by S. Murry
One off the dump valves on my DG-200 is not completely closing. It seems that the spring mechanism that pushes down on the plug to seal it when you close the dump valve doesn't have enough "oomph" to completely close the valve. I suspect that a good cleaning might be all that is required, but if...

What magic do the JS3 and Ventus 3 have that the ASG-29 Does not? by Bojack J4
After the definitive spanking these two new models gave to the previously dominant ASG-29, there has to be a superiority. So, what is it? (And yes, the pilot matters...but look at the results in 18m Worlds competition)
