18m polar curve by Alan Irving
Can anyone supply a polar curve for a current 18m sailplane? Ideally the Ventus 2cxT, although Schempp-Hirth polars seem to be unobtainable. I already have the Dick Johnson review of the ASH-26E, so will use the polar from that if all else fails. That said, if anyone has a curve for a...

Radio advice - newbie by Roger Worden
I'm a student pilot, and it's about time for me to get a radio. For general soaring purposes, what's a decent handheld? I really know nothing about them. Is the Sporty's SP-200 a good choice? Thanks in advance.

Thermal Maximizer by Ted Hauser
What experience has anyone had with thermal maximizers such a Winpilot Pro, SN10, or Thermi? Are they helpful in locating the core? The question regards locating the center not locating the thermal. There has already been a thread started about thermal locators.

The "Complex" TAS calculation by Arnold Pieper
Although TAS is not as useful for glider pilots, as IAS and GS, some recent posts seem to sugget that TAS is not a clear concept for many pilots. Some people even consider it a "Sophisticated calculation", which is really astonishing. The advent of GPSs with the easy read out of Ground Speed has...

SN 10 Display problem by Steve B
The display on the SN10 has horizontal lines across the bottom 20% of the screen. I think it is probably the contacts between the display and the unit. I was curious if it is possible to get access to the contacts for the display to clean them? Thanks

FS: Blanik L-13 Wings and tail feahers by Burt Compton
"Rocketman" Bill has a set of wings south of Miami near Homestead, FL. Call his cellphone at 305-753-6058. Yep, this is the guy that worked on the jet launched L-13 that never flew, as the thrust was not as advertised.
