ASW 19 Seat back by [email protected]
Looking for an ASW-19 Seat back. A friend of mine purchased a ASW-19 but the previous owner lost or could not find the seat back. Anyone have sources for used glider parts US/Europe? I have asked Williams to look into getting one from the factory but will be pricey! Thanks in advance, Colin...

Why no "situational awareness" (collision avoidance) apps for cell phones? by WB
Smart phones can talk to each other (through the cell system, duh) and they have substantial computing power. They have GPS so they know where they are, how high they are, and how fast they are going. We know they can output and receive that data in flight because we use them to track our gliders...

Ilec SB-8 manual by ASM
Does anyone of you have an Ilec SB-8 manual and could email me a link? One of my gliders has SB-8 however, there is a second vario with 3 knobs and it seems that the SB-8 main unit is somehow connected to the “second” unit. It looks like the second unit is responding to any air movement around...

Notable Power Flarm saves - Is it 'worth it'? by son_of_flubber
When I installed Power Flarm (PF) in 2013, I had no idea whether it would ever 'save my butt'. Not many people have it in my area. Last October I was flying by myself on a weekday in the Sugarbush Wave, at 8000 climbing, and squawking 1202 (on a TT21 that came with the glider). I gave Burlington...

One or both of these beautiful wing tie downs free to a good home (see image here). https://farm1.staticflickr.com/954/41049064624_60348e0cd6_z.jpg You pay shipping. I made these for my Ventus C (which I no longer have) because I wanted a fast, simple and secure way to tie the ship down. Simply...

ADS-B-in dual-band receiver that integrates with an Oudie? by son_of_flubber
Is anyone interested in a Skunk Works ADS-B-in dual-band receiver that integrates with a moving map program running on an Oudie? I guess it would integrate with a moving map program like SeeYouMobile or XCSoar. The project might just be a matter of integrating one of the proven ADS-B-in receivers...

FS: Gap Tape by Thomas Johnson[_3_]
Gap Tape 40 rolls for $40. Not as good as the more expensive gap tape. Cheap alternative if you tape up and un-tape each day. (one day use tape) The $40 includes shipping by USPS (USA only).

I would like to know how (and when) FLARM got approved for operation in the USA (FCC? different frequency?). The manual still says; "Operation of FLARM is forbidden in the USA or Canada or in aircraft registered in the USA or Canada." Thanks, Kolie Lombard

Color Platforms for Top Hat/XCSoar by [email protected]
What color devices are pilots using for Top Hat/XCSoar? I'm running Top Hat on a Kobo Glo (large eink gray scale--great readability) and a Dell Streak 5 (smaller screen, color, acceptable readability). If the Dell were a little brighter and larger, it would be perfect. Options seem to range from...
