Glider cockpit size by [email protected]
Even for smaller pilots, current cockpits are usually too snug. I'm normal build and 5'10" so I have no trouble fitting in my Ventus 2cM, and its comfortable, but I can't move much and little stowage space. I always have more 'stuff' than places to stow it where I can reach it. There is space...

CG Trimming after Tail Boom Repair by [email protected]
A new weight and balance, after a tail boom repair, shows that several tens of pounds of trim weight needs to be added to a forward location in order to move the CG back into acceptable range. This fixes CG issue, but are there other concerns with doing this? Would be interested in experience of...

Next glider, ownership costs question? by flgliderpilot[_2_]
Low time pilot, 60hrs, have done some solo cross country flying but not a lot. Sold my 1-26E a few years ago (not by choice, business debt at the time). My first thought is to jump into another 1-26 or 1-34 for a number of reasons (safety and availability). I could land my 1-26 just about...

How effective are dehumidifiers in unsealed trailers? by Mark W
My syndicate are pondering an electrical hookup and dehumidifier for our trailer that's kept over winter at a site that's humid and cold (it's probably in cloud for 50% of the winter). The trailer is an older metal trailer with unsealed doors and a rotating air vent. I'm wondering how effective a...

iPhone X and iGlide - the verdict is in. by Andy Blackburn[_3_]
Thanks for this. OLED ought to be better in high brightness environments so it's reassuring that it is. It looked to me like Apple didn't set the max brightness on the iPhone X as high as I would have liked, but I could only experience it in the store. Seems like one reflection problem is off the...

ASH 25M Polar by [email protected]
Hi Nik, the difference in glide performance between the winglet configurations is not that large. But the 26m-winglets increase aileron effectiveness and significantly improve handling in thermals. Climb performance is also said to improve. Best, Christoph

Repainting Wingtip by JB Gunner
The wingtip skid on my glider had become worn down and I didn't catch in time. I landed on a concrete runway. The under surface of the wingtip scrapped on the runway wearing off the paint. There seems to be no damage to the fiberglass just scratched gelcoat. The scrape is about two inches wide...
