Moisture in Winter Vario by Wayne Paul
I have a HP-14 which is kept assembled and tied down on the ramp. This has never been problem until this Spring. (There has been far more rain then normal this year.) When flying last Friday I noticed water droplets on the inside of the Winter mechanical vario lens and the instrument was...

WX and flying report: Upcoming Region 10 by Bob D
Thinking that maybe a few of you aren't sure about the soaring quality for the Region 10 contest in August... This weekend conditions were such that according to the OLC-U.S. page, Saturday's third ranking scored flight (and longest distance in the U.S.) came from Greater Houston Soaring Assoc....

Extension cord gauge question by Tuno
Yes, I know I'm a little OT here, but I am packing for Parowan :) I recall someone once telling me that extension cords larger than 14 gauge (maybe he said 16) are a waste of money because the plugs at each end are not rated for anything higher than what a 16 gauge wire can provide. Is this true...

WTB: Cobra Trailer Ramp Jack - US by Gary Emerson
If, by chance, you've upgraded to the hydraulic jack and have a decent condition dual scissor jack assembly that you'd be willing to part with, please let me know. US preferred for shipping costs. Thanks

OLC rules? by GARY BOGGS
I looked through the rules and I can't see a limit to the number of flights a pilot can submit for one day. Is it true that more than one flight can be posted for a single day? Gary Boggs www.nwskysports.com

TE Compensation Question by Hellman
I've been flying gliders for years, but the following question only occurred to me recently: In mechanically compensated varios, the TE pressure is supposed to be as much below static as pitot is above that. That makes sense since "ram air pressure" increases as v^2, as does the kinetic energy of...

Help - Do I fly Reno, or Elmira w/DJ? by noel.wade
OK All, I've been asking this question of some local pilots, and I haven't heard an argument that's convinced me one way or another yet... So I'm opening this question up for (hopefully) broader input. Your help is much appreciated! I'm a relative newcomer to the competition scene. I finished...

Loud noise upon braking by Itsaplane[_2_]
Making a relatively low-energy landing in my DG-300 (s/n 3E1) on Sunday, I modestly applied the brakes and instantly heard a loud buzzing (?) noise. I released the brakes, the noise stopped, and I reapplied the brakes and heard no noise with normal braking power. This is a TOST drum brake. A...

I would like to gauge the desirability of ordering a single or double axles on an ASK 21 Cobra trailer with the likelihood that cars smaller than SUV's would be towing.

It's been a LOUSY U.S. soaring contest season! by John Bojack[_2_]
Can we all do a group hug, or something? Perry was mediocre. 15m Nats got rained out. Bermudah high had one good day, but did get a contest in with some rather weak weather. And finally, Caesar Creek had their typical rain-out to keep things going. What have we done to deserve this?

Relief Tube Housing - Unsafe by Tim Taylor
I pulled the seat pan in my Ventus 2 for the first time to find the relief tube housing to be a 10 inch long sharp ended aluminum tube epoxied to the bottom of the fuselage. Needless to say if you have one of these in your glider I encourage you to get rid of it ASAP. I would hate to see what...

UK Air Accidents by Graham Drinkell
Recent Air Accidents/Incidents appear to have been very poorly reported by the press. Especially when light aircraft are involved. They are extremely unknowledgable, wether a paraglider (or other a/c) / RAF training a/c is involved?
