Discus 2b versus LS-6c by [email protected]
Which would you buy and why? Everyone probably knows the Discus 2b, but in case you're not familiar with the LS-6c, it has 15m and 17.5m tips, automatic control hookups (unlike the 6a and 6b), and a safety cockipit (unlike the 6a and 6b).

Hi Due to legislation change in Europe (mandatory 8.33 kHz spacing), I'm selling my Becker AR-4201. Fully functional. Serial No: 1067 Note: It's sold without the harness as it's still in my glider, mounted to the new radio. Pictures available he https://photos.app.goo.gl/9GVweZADDKd7GAW33

sunlight readable iphone by [email protected]
Does anyone have any data on whether the iPhone X OLED screen will be more sunlight readable than previous iPhones? The brightness spec looks the same (625cd/m2), but I see no data on the screen reflectance.

alternative to iGlide for iPhone (6 plus) by Bob Pasker
I have been using iGlide now for about 20 flights, and I really don't like it very much. It is riddled with bugs (which I have duly reported to Butterfly only to hear "yes, we're aware of that"), the user experience is terrible (and I speak as someone who has worked in user interaction and user...

Grob 109 by Brien
Thinking of buying a 109A need to know the good the bad and the ugly of it. Just what do I need to know about it, I have had people say stay away from it others say it is good if you know how to fly it ?

Modifying Std Libelle with Tost Lilliput Wheel by [email protected]
Has anyone done a 337 to modify a Std Libelle with the Tost 4" wheel? Looking tech data for a 337 or a precedent of someone that has already done this.. I know the Tost Wheel Selection Chart shows compatibility and Streifeneder is ok with the substitution but that's probably enough to satisfy the...

Polar diagrams and L/D by Jim[_33_]
I sure need help here. As far as I understand polar diagrams the airspeed axis is for indicated airspeed, not true airspeed. This certainly makes sense. BUT, I have also come to understand that an estimate of L/D for a given airspeed can be obtained by dividing a given airspeed on the polar...

500K Stickers by Brian Stevens
Have you ever pulled up behind a car at a stop light and seen one of those 13.1 or 26.2 sticker? Those arrogant runners... We can do better. I have been thinking about a new business opportunity, and think it would be neat to "advertise" our own accomplishments. Why not have 300K/500K/750K/1000K...

Alfonso and I-75 by [email protected]
I recall the days long past when Alfonso Jurado,E9, was flying in Cordele and had to make an off field landing close to the Cordele airport. If any of you know how the Cordele airport is situated you will know that interstate 75 runs to the east of the airport. After realizing that he could not...

LS-3 seatback wanted by Bill Palmer
I recently purchased an LS-3, without the adjustable seatback. Apparently the previous owner was "a big dude" so it was removed as he didn't need it. Then it was lost to time and space. I'm on the other end of the size spectrum and would prefer one vs. a big cushion. If anyone knows of an LS...

Fligth Time Calculator by [email protected]
Hi, every now and then, we all have this chore of updating the flight book and the pilot log book with these hard to calculate hours and minutes. So several years ago, I made a web page for that. But that was even cumbersome, so now I have made an Android app for it, minimizing the number of key...

PW-5 longitudinal pitch oscillation by [email protected]
Am considering buying a PW-5 as my first single-seater for a variety of reasons, but the one aspect I don't like is that in rough air the tail is easily pitched up in flight from unexpected gusts once I'm off tow. This one's been weighed & balanced recently and its CG is perfectly centered within...

Schweizer 1-34 trailer fittings by kirk.stant
Our club (SLSA) has a nice 1-34 that we want to encourage XC in; however our trailer (a basic Schweizer multi-glider open trailer) is missing the fittings needed to secure the glider to it - fuselage tiedowns, tail holders, etc. The rest of the trailer is in OK shape, so we want to make up new...

BRSS Boomerang Trophy Update by Piet Barber
The Blue Ridge Soaring Society's Boomerang trophy has moved. The Boomerang has been at Front Royal, VA for nearly two years, but was retrieved by Chris Zaboji (pronounced Zah-BOY-ee). Chris performed the cross-country glider flight of 144 statute miles in about 4 and a half hours over some pretty...

oudie/s80 question by Del Jensen
I just got these two instruments and have been bench testing at home. The baud rates are properly set, and the s80 gets gps from the oudie, but about every ten seconds the s80 drops the signal and flashes no data very briefly, then picks it back up. Very consistent timing. Is this normal? It is...

PW-5 Trailer Ideas? by Ed Anderson
I recently bought a nice PW-5 with original Sierra open trailer. Glider and trailer have been sheltered since new and are both in great shape. The glider is a joy to fly, but the trailer leaves a lot to be desired. I am interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with modifying the trailer...
