ADSB visibility with non certified GPS by [email protected]
The following quote comes from the Trig web page for their TN72 GPS. "Wherever ADS-B technology is used it is worth highlighting that most ADS-B In traffic receivers will only display aircraft traffic that generate a non-zero quality indicator, (also referred to as SIL 1). In contrast a zero...

Polar diagrams and L/D by Jim[_33_]
I sure need help here. As far as I understand polar diagrams the airspeed axis is for indicated airspeed, not true airspeed. This certainly makes sense. BUT, I have also come to understand that an estimate of L/D for a given airspeed can be obtained by dividing a given airspeed on the polar...

sunlight readable iphone by [email protected]
Does anyone have any data on whether the iPhone X OLED screen will be more sunlight readable than previous iPhones? The brightness spec looks the same (625cd/m2), but I see no data on the screen reflectance.

Fligth Time Calculator by [email protected]
Hi, every now and then, we all have this chore of updating the flight book and the pilot log book with these hard to calculate hours and minutes. So several years ago, I made a web page for that. But that was even cumbersome, so now I have made an Android app for it, minimizing the number of key...

trailer painting by mike davis
It is time to repaint my aluminum cobra trailer. I'm not planning to spray it myself but does anyone have any thoughts on using an auto body shop to do the work? Could I do some of the prep myself? Any idea about the cost? Thanks

alternative to iGlide for iPhone (6 plus) by Bob Pasker
I have been using iGlide now for about 20 flights, and I really don't like it very much. It is riddled with bugs (which I have duly reported to Butterfly only to hear "yes, we're aware of that"), the user experience is terrible (and I speak as someone who has worked in user interaction and user...

Discus 2b versus LS-6c by [email protected]
Which would you buy and why? Everyone probably knows the Discus 2b, but in case you're not familiar with the LS-6c, it has 15m and 17.5m tips, automatic control hookups (unlike the 6a and 6b), and a safety cockipit (unlike the 6a and 6b).
