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...

Great Basin Soaring by Jim[_18_]

NEW - Falbaum "Pseudo-Stud" Glider Trailer Wheel Tool by bumper[_4_]
As with others, such as Udo Rumpf (remember Udo?*) and Hartley, I've invented a few things for gliders. If it's soaring related, you know going in it's the very definition of narrow market segment. If your invention is wildly successful, return will still be more allowance than income. For this...

FES climb rate at 15kW power? by Richard DalCanto
I was looking at the FES manual, and I was curious what climb rates (in ft/min) people are getting in 18M gliders at the recommend sustained climbing power of 15-18kW? Are you getting over 3,500ft of total climbing? I have a JS3 on order with FES sustainer option (because I don't plan on...

Grob SB's by Alan Garside
Anyone paid for access to the Grob web site for SB information. In December they introduced the charge but now have had to make it free as they are required to make the information available to A/C owners. But guess what, they don't want to refund those who have paid as it gives access to...

Anyone test fly both the JS3 and the Ventus 3? by Richard DalCanto
I have a deposit on both with FES system. The JS3 would arrive in 2020. The Ventus maybe 2021. Reading the POH, the Ventus may have gentler stall characteristics (according to the manual with forward CG it won't drop a wing on stall either level or in a 45 degree bank). The JS3 manual makes it...
