Admit your lie, tommy by Lennie the Lurker
No facts, just an ego. Dig in google, the final straw of the down and drowning. Just admit it, tommy boy, you shot off your overstuffed ego and oversized mouth, and my foot is in it. I even made sure that you were insinuating what I thought you were, and you swallowed the hook, line and sinker. ...

PDA mounts by Mhudson126
As the proud new owner of a PDA (oh yeah and a Discus to go with it), I'm looking for suggestions on how to mount it in the glider. Where is the best place to find a mount for it, and how are you running the wires? With all this "glass" in the cockpit, it's getting harder and harder to remember...

antenna installation in a glider? by ken ward
If you had to (re)install an antenna in a glider, how would you do it? What material would you use, what length would it be, how would you terminate the aft end, how do you get the aft end all the way back there and secured, etc? Thanks, Ken

West Coast Jack PW-9 aerobatic glider by Charles Yeates
Today, a report from Poland said, “There is no progress on the PW-9 project due to lack of funds. I don’t see that it will happen soon. I think that the university project team has switched to working on an ultra light project.” Regards,

Rico Vario free to good home by Jim Phoenix
I bought a wrecked 1-26 a while back and it came with a Rico vario (serial number VAS2095) that appears to work just fine with power applied. There is no wiring harness, otherwise it's OK. If someone has a use for it, I'll mail it to you for the cost of postage... or trade for low-time Nimbus 4M...

Cambridge Aero Explorer Fix by Guy Byars
The Cambridge Aero Explorer is not ready to be taken out and shot just yet. While it might not be as refined as SeeYou or Strepla, it is *free* and it does provide the tightest and most complete integration with the Cambridge Recorder Boxes. I have fixed the 2004/1994 date rollover problem and...
