Trailer TETRIS by JS
Has anyone had success with loading two 15m (Cobra or similar) trailers into one shipping container? Better yet, have the two trailers come out nicely at the other end? Seems to me that one needs to go above the other in a high-cube: Tail first up top and roll the other underneath... Or both the...

Glide Navigator 2 technical question (V2 and V3) by Scott Alexander[_2_]
I'm going through the setup on glider navigator 2 on my IPAQ 2215. When I select the polar data it does not ask for the speed at V2 and V3. It does ask me for max l/d info and V1 speed. Anyone know how I can enter the V2 and V3 speed? Thanks in advance!! SA

We had the pleasure to take the Arcus on its maiden voyage in the US this last weekend in Immokalee, FL. We made 6 flight for about 6 hours. What a dream ship. You would swear it was a singleplace 15m or 18m. Aileron control and roll rate were great. Even though this ship just flat out goes I...

Nice Newspaper Article by Vsoars
I'm glad the article was well received and thanks for the kind words. The point of getting media coverage is to promote our sport. It's easier than you think. It took me 10 minutes to use the "Record" template from the new, revised Soaring Publicity Handbook. I emailed it to the city desk...

DG-300 Water Ballast Bags by noel.wade
So I would like to start flying my DG-300 with water; but the previous owner tells me that the bags weren't used for about the last 10 years. Rather than take a chance on them, I'd like to replace them. My local DG dealer (whom I do appreciate) is saying its about $1000USD per bag from the...

Soaring apps for iPhone by kirk.stant
Just got one of these Apple gizmos and I'm curious what apps other glider guiders are using. So far I've found some nice non-aviation weather and mapping apps, so now I'm looking for a good NOTAM and aviation wx brief app. How about SPOT, XCskies, DrJack? Kirk 66

Standard Class / National Distance to Goal Record by ryanglover1969[_2_]
http://ssa.org/members/badgesandrecords/RecordTable.asp 448.24mi Fritz Seger 8/29/1987 Not to diminish Fritz Seger's fantastic flight but, I would have thought this record would have been surpassed on some of the ridges in the east by now. Is going for this record unappealing to a lot of pilots?
