Skysight integration in XCSoar by Bogdan Manoiu

SN10 Question by JulietUniform
After performing a leak check on my TE system, my SN10 now sounds a continuous tone after power up. (On the ground, haven’t tried in the air) It is not in speed to fly mode but is in vario mode. Prior to this it was always “silent” after start up. Have I possibly damaged an internal sensor...

Ventus C being parted-out by [email protected]
My Ventus C didn't survive the last landing, the insurance company totaled it and I have the remains. I may have been the only bidder as I was able to acquire it as a salvage sale for a ridiculously low price. So, if anyone wants to offer a reasonable for the entire plane, let me know - I'll be...
