Temporarily operating a German registered glider in the US by [email protected]
Dear US-gliding community, it seems likely that I am going to spend about 2 year in the US (NJ area) starting next spring and I would like to bring my German registered glider along. Given it is for 2 years only, I would like to keep the ship under its German flag and keep any changes to glider...

Cobra hydraulic bottle jacks - where to buy? by [email protected]
I am looking for a source for a replacement bottle jack for a cobra trailer ramp (yes, I know I should switch to the mechanical jack and all problems will go away, but I don't want to go down that route yet). The Torin 2-ton jack that Walmart and Autozone sell is extremely poorly built, in addition...

The Cobra "Ramp Grind" - a fix by bumper[_4_]
New "bumper" product announcement: The ramp sliders on my 2002 Cobra trailer were metal on metal, bolt threads gouged the extruded aluminum floor rails and there was metal on metal wear.. Some later trailers have plastic washers, but those don't last or work well either. I made plastic sliders for...

With all the new (and some of the older - SN10 for example) vario-computers having accelerometers and settings for ballast and polars, would it be possible to compute and display the optimum thermalling speed adjusted for wingloading and bank angle (as a function of instantaneous G-loading)?

Safe distance between PowerFLARM and Mode-C antenna by Marton K.Sz.
Hi Soaring, Our club glider (a Grob G-102) is about to get a new PowerFLARM portable unit, which we're planning to install on the top of the instrument panel because of the good visibility of the display.
