ASW15 vs ASW19 by Senna Van den Bosch
Hey everyone I would like to have some opinions on buying a first glider between these two. There are a couple of both for sale that I've seen and my budget would be 10-20k euros. Would you say the performance difference justifies the price difference? How would they compare at higher speeds and...

Trig TT21 Transponder ... reports? by Grider Pirate
There was quite a thread storm 11 months ago here about the TT21 transponder. I assume some of the 'early adopters' here purchased and installed one. Any complaints??

I've been looking at a few gliders and read a lot of reviews but still would like some more...

Diana 3 by Pete[_9_]
Sweet! However, it doesn't even look like a Diana; they should have retired the name it and started anew. The fuse looks a Discus or something. Pretty bland in that regard. Function over form I know, but the original Diana cockpit seemed like something out of the future...

Chute Repacking Service by Matt Herron Jr.
For anyone looking for a place to have your chute repacked, may I reccomend Clay Bonavito ( ) from Bay Area skydiving. Based out of Byron Airport in CA, he was able to turn mine around in 2-3 days for about $88. I have used him several times now with excellent results. ...

It is Spring again, and if you haven't done so in awhile it would be a great time to update the airspace and airport databases in your glide computer, PNA, handheld GPS, or desktop planning software in preparation for the upcoming US season. The FAA data for the charting cycle effective March 1,...

Now that our club tow plane has installed ADS-B out, I’m getting a constant collision alert on my S80, Flarm butterfly and Qudie while on tow. Is there any way to silence the collision alarm while on tow without turning off ADS-B targets on Flarm all together. I like seeing ADS-B targets while...

Mechanical vario stuck on 5 kts up by Movses Babayan
Mech vario (PZL, I believe) got stuck on 5kts up. When lift exceeds that (e.g. on tow), needle moves up and then back down to 5. Never goes below 5. Electric vario that is, to my best knowledge, connected to the same TE source behaves normally. Questions: - Can something like this be caused by...

Wanted: Mechanical Vario by Phil Chidekel
Hey all, I’m looking to buy a mechanical vario—does anyone have a used instrument that could live in an ASW 15? 57mm is prefferred, but not required. The winter vario in the cockpit suffered a catastrophic crunch while I was getting out of the glider yesterday. Spring is here!
