LxNav USB hub? by Jonathan St. Cloud
Just purchased the Wifi option for the LXNAV 9070. Currently I have a USB extension plugged into the only USB port on LX, then mounted on the panel fairing by my legs. This way I have access to the USB and all the data transfer without removing canopy to access port. My question is, can anyone...

Libelle by Ross[_3_]
So this is a bit of a strange story. Up for sale last week on Ebay was this old lady: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Standard-Libelle-Glasflugel-Glider-First-Registered-in-1976-/252990052032?hash=item3ae761d6c0:g:ztMAAOSwCkZZQCZX&vxp=mtr And less than a week later, without even changing pictures or...

TT21/TN72 power consumption by jfitch
For those of you contemplating this, I've made some rough power measurements. Sitting in my shop with a clear view towards the airport, the TT21 is reporting nearly constant interrogations, and drawing between 120 and 150 ma. The TN72 alone draws about 70 ma. When both are powered and broadcasting...

Becker AR 620x radio - seems a little quiet? by jfitch
I finally got my new radio wired, the audio seems a little quiet compared to the old Dittel 71. Same speaker, 4 ohm as spec'd. I remember the Dittel being pretty loud, kept the volume knob set to the lower half of rotation. The Becker even at 100% is far from earsplitting, and maybe not loud...

GlidePort.aero - how to send a link by [email protected]
I can't seem to send a usable link of one of my flight logs to a friend. The friend is not logged into Glideport. The link I copied from when I was looking at the track (and logged in) shows no tracks when the friend uses the link. A link to a search by pilot name, with my name, works when I log...

Dittel Speaker Box by AS
Would anyone have a single line diagram for a Dittel Speaker Box for two microphones? Mine is acting up and I found one additional cable soldered in - can't figure out what it is for and would like to find out what it connects to. Thanks, Uli 'AS'

Lark IS29-D2 owners and pilots? by Jan Zanutto
I bought a single seat Lark and am beginning to build some time in it. Just wondering if there are any other Lark guys out there. I made a page on facebook as well if anyone of you wants to connect there. I had some time in the 2 place years ago, seemed to be a good flyer for what it was. I...

Brazov IS29-D2 Lark parts needed. by [email protected]
I have a 1979 Brazov IS29-D2 Lark. The rubber donuts are starting to wear out and get brittle on the main gear shock absorber. Does anyone know where I could get replacements? Either used from another glider, or manufactured new by someone who can match the donuts to the original spec?

Any interference from the Genasun LFP solar charger controller? by jfitch
I've seen them mounted in various places, under the seat pan would be ideal but I'm a bit painted into a corner at this point and it would need to be mounted in the panel, fairly near the radio and the ISU for the Air Vario. They claim these are well shielded, but I've been misled before by...

Better self rigging system by Steve Cameron
I'm sure someone has come up with a much more user friendly system for self rigging vs. what I'm currently doing. My new to me DG400 is in an older Minden trailer, which is tucked inside a T-hangar behind a Cessna 182(high wing). To get the DG out I first have to pull the 182 out, than roll the...

Diana 3 seems to be a Czech glider by [email protected]
Looking at a picture of the new Diana 3 glider, the elliptical elevator rang a bell in my little brain. I had already seen it before, many years ago at the Aero show in Friedrichshafen. Going through old picture books I found the KKB-15 (Kusbach BartonĂ*k & Kotolánem) a Czech build glider. So I...

So I'm headed to Moariarty from TN with my 20 in tow in June. I have an older komet trailer, for which I had just gotten new tires, which I have yet to put on. I took the trailer to a shop locally to have the surge breaks adjusted, tires put on, and bearings repacked. After about an hour they...
