Power Flarm Display by K m
Readers, Was wondering what pilots are doing for Flarm displays. Ive used an LXNav Flarm View for years but with the upgrades to SYM it seems a dedicated screen is redundant. I am in the process of off season maintenance and will probably ditch the Flarm View display unless I can figure out what it...

Fuselage lift by Jonathan St. Cloud
Wondering how much if any lift in gliders is generated from the fuselage in flight. There is a famous photo of a F-15 that landed with one wing gone due to collision. This of course was possible due to the lift generated by the F-15 fuselage. The Schleicher family of gliders had two new...

303 Display by Linwood Stevenson
The 303 display controller on my 302/303 combination has died. Does anyone have a serviceable 303 they could part with? Price? Or maybe I may be forced to upgrade to one on the newer fancy varios. Thanks! Linwood 7B

LX Adapter Cable by Dan Marotta
My new (to me) Stemme has an LS7007 Pro IGC installed but no data bases loaded. I see a 5-pin DIN connector on the panel near the control head but no cable came with the aircraft. Does anyone out there have a spare that they would like to sell or donate to the cause? -- Dan, 5J

(US) Spring Airport and Airspace Data Update by 2KA
Hello All, It is Spring again, and if you haven't done so in awhile it would be a great time to update the airspace and airport databases in your glide computer, PNA, handheld GPS, or desktop planning software in preparation for the upcoming US season. The FAA data for the charting cycle...

Scanning vrs electronics by Waveguru
I do not have any anti collision devices in my sailplanes so I scan and scan and scan. Our airspace is complicated, so I do intend to get at least a transponder. In all my scanning, I almost never see a target in the 4 o-clock, or even 3 0-clock position as hard as I try. I don't see them until...

Questions on rules that changed this year (2016) in US Soaring by SoaringXCellence
All, I've been reviewing the rule changes and have a couple questions: It looks like the Club class is now restricted to 15M ships (with a handicap between .089 and 1.020) The handicap list on the SSA site currently shows a number of ships with greater than 15M spans. So can we fly in Club...

Slips in turns and landing with winglets by [email protected]
I know this is a silly question, but I was reading an article by Dick Johnson that talked about holding a slight slip while thermally. This article was written before winglets and I was wondering if the same idea applied to gliders with winglets. Also, as for slipping to lose altitude for landing...
