Anyone get hassled for exceeding max car and trailer length? by Gordon Boettger
Looking at getting an RV (25' length). Combine that with a doubleseater glider trailer and I'm at 60'. I'm in NV, so I'm good, but going into OR I would be 10" over the legal limit. Anyone out there run into any issues with the "fuzz" for exceeding combined vehicle and trailer length? Thanks

CAI Model 20 to OLC? by Steve Leonard[_2_]
Yeah, I know I should "buy a new logger". But, I fly old sailplanes. :-) Anyone had success uploading a file from a Model 20 and getting a valid score? I am 0 for 3. The first two, I wrote off to too few satellites a couple of times during the flight. Didn't have that issue today, but still a...

PowerFlarm “Own Transponder Detection" Rate by John Carlyle
I’ve been trying to get the rate of "own transponder detection" by my PowerFlarm Core as low as possible. Nothing I’ve done has improved it beyond roughly every 10 minutes, on average. Sometimes it’s much worse, showing up almost constantly. Turning off PCAS isn’t really an option for me,...

Sinus Verses Sundancer by Steve
What are the pros and cons of the Sinus compared to the Sundancer/Lambada? I'm more interested in the soaring side of things and like something light on the controls. Also what are the advantages of the newer model of Sundancer compared to the older Lambada and is it worth the extra $ ?
