Spot or InReach ?? by Jonathan St. Cloud
My Spot renewal has come up, but not charged. Called Spot tried to get some info on their new device. Couldn't even find out if one would need a different data plan to access the two-way features. Tried a google search for information on the next gen two-way spot but could not find...

Pilot report from Hahnweide Mid-air by Justin Craig[_3_]
I agree. Excellent report, however he is not retiring from competition flying, quite the opposite. He still intends to fly competitions, but will be selective about which ones. At 05:54 14 May 2018, krasw wrote: Excellent report worth reading everyone. This pilot now obviously knows the risks...

Gas Strut for early (1997) Anschau Komet trailer by Bill[_21_]
I'm looking for a resource for a replacement gas strut used to open the trailer top for a early 1997ish Komet Anschau glider trailer. This trailer has the external hinge. I'm hoping to find a suitable replacement from a US supplier. Thanks for your help. Bill

Recommendations for cataract surgery lenses for flying by teck48[_2_]
I'm due for cataract surgery. Any good or bad experiences with lens implants for flying? Eye doc is recommending multi focus lenses (as opposed to mono focus). And a slightly different lens in each eye. Both multifocal, but dominant eye implant optimized for distance. Anyone have any experience?...

Roof Rack for bikes on a cobra clamshell top? by Matt Herron Jr.
I have searched discussions on bike racks and trailers. I tend not to like the trailer hitch extension solution as stability is compromised, as well as access to the car or trailer hatches. Has anyone installed a traditional roof rack on top of a fiberglass Cobra trailer? Looking to support one...

Iran and GPS etc by Jim White[_3_]
I watch with despair as Trump tears up the Iran Nuclear Agreement. However I wonder whether this is the same as trying to hold back technology in gliding competition: no flight computer, no GPS, no moving map, no Flarm display, no online weather, no nuclear bombs? It is probably inevitable...

Flat external FLARM antenna? by Matt Herron Jr.
Flarm antennas are a real pain for ships with carbon hulls. Coverage is always poor, especially below. Is there a way to make a perfectly flat and thin antenna that could be taped to the outside of the hull and fed through a small (1/8"?) hole? I am thinking 2 thin wire strands, or foil strips,...

Why no "situational awareness" (collision avoidance) apps for cell phones? by WB
Smart phones can talk to each other (through the cell system, duh) and they have substantial computing power. They have GPS so they know where they are, how high they are, and how fast they are going. We know they can output and receive that data in flight because we use them to track our gliders...

Notable Power Flarm saves - Is it 'worth it'? by son_of_flubber
When I installed Power Flarm (PF) in 2013, I had no idea whether it would ever 'save my butt'. Not many people have it in my area. Last October I was flying by myself on a weekday in the Sugarbush Wave, at 8000 climbing, and squawking 1202 (on a TT21 that came with the glider). I gave Burlington...

Free Ventus wing tie downs by Matt Herron Jr.
