Transponders and FLARM by JS
Dan's post unfortunately didn't start a new thread as intended. Since we intentionally fly close to them, most alerts are from other gliders. I find audible alerts of mode C or S equipped gliders sharing a thermal to be "noise". For me, an audible alert marks the only time to look at the traffic...

I'm gearing up to make a couple sets of water ballast release valves for HP-24 kits, and I'm curious if there might be any interest in them as retrofits for other gliders.
