Flarm Antenna Extension by MNLou
I'm in a situation where I need to elevate my Flarm antenna above the glare shield to avoid interference directly ahead of the glider(LAK17AT) due to the carbon nose cone. I'm getting a pretty nasty blind spot there. I've seen installations where the Flarm antenna was elevated using a "paint stir...

Fly Deliberately. Fly Tasks - Proving Grounds by Patrick (LS6-b EH)
Over the past few years at my gliding club (Cu Nim, Calgary Alberta), we’ve developed an XC development framework that in 2019 spread across Canada. Now we’re looking to share its success to clubs around the world (French and English speaking at this point). The problem is the same for many of...

Wing root bearings hard to align/rotate to correct position. by [email protected]
The wing root bearings on my Ventus are difficult to align and require force to rotate to the right position of parallel to the face of the spar. Tried greasing, but suspect it needs a clean up first. What would you use to clean and free them ? Dan

Selling the 1999 Schroth 4 point harness that came with my Discus- 2b. Apparently an AD came out restricting this model from being used on aerobatic certified aircraft. Hooker Harness re-webbed it for me last November for use on Experimental certified aircraft. The new tags don't have TSO...

How reliably do CG hooks disconnect when the angle of the ropeexceeds the autorelease angle by Kenz Dale
I understand that CG hooks are designed to autorelease when the angle of pull passes a certain critical angle. Is this a very reliable disconnect, or is more of an "Eh, it's nice to have but I've seen it fail too many times to trust it"?

Wing tip wheels, one or several? by [email protected]
Our self-launch glider has downturned wing tips. From the factory, there was nothing more than a skid to make contact with the ground. Over time, people seem to have settled on putting a roller-blade wheel there, presumably because it dramatically improves ground handling. However, the wheel isn't...
