Engine braking in Arcus M - can we have the system from the V3? by waremark
I find the automatic engine braking in my Arcus M disappointing. While my prop sometimes gets starts going down the on the first rotation after switch off, quite often it doesn't. If it misses twice, on the third time I try to use the manual prop brake, but that's difficult to do when flying (and...

Proper Way to Insert Multi-Probe by Dan Marotta
When I got my Stemme, I asked my instructor if there was a proper technique to insert the multi-probe in the nose.* He said to just push it in until I hear/feel a metallic click.* That's worked just fine for the past two years but I wonder if I should lubricate the thing, say with Vaseline or...

Minimum number of flights for winch sign off? by Waveguru
What would be the consensus for the minimum number of flights to get a ground launch sign off for an experienced glider pilot? How many cable breaks and at what altitude? Of course it would take more for some and less for others, but I would think at least 15 launches with 5 cable breaks at various...
