A Different Battery Question by Dan Marotta
I've been using a 20 AH LiFePO4 battery as a backup in the Stemme. It's portable and secured behind the passenger seat.* I charge it outside of the aircraft.* When used, it is connected through an DPST switch (only one half used) and switches the tail battery out of the system as it's...

History Question About U.S. Tasking by [email protected]
Does anyone recall when U.S. contests (especially nationals) evolved from "announce the task at the morning pilots' meeting and fly it no matter what" to the more enlightened "Task A and B (and C and D...) and pick one--or define another--on the grid or even in the air"? I can't recall whether this...

Flight manual format by JS[_5_]
Just noticed that European flight manuals share the same format. No, they aren't called a POH. For example, DG1000S, Duo Discus and ASH26E manuals all have airspeed indicator markings in section 2.3. Handy. Jim

RIP John Shelton, Pez D Spencer by [email protected]
I just learned John passed away on Sept 8th. He had been fighting brain cancer for several years. He was a good friend during my soaring days and we had a million laughs together. I will write more later as I know who most of the people he wrote about in Pez. He was one of a kind. Tom Hubbard VN

I am looking to update my ELT and PLB. I have a fixed ELT on my glider, it's an early 2000's era, and I also have a similar era PLB that is supposed to strap to a parachute, but frankly it is somewhat bulky. What are the current generation PLB / ELT for gliding? I'd like to get a single compact...

LX Era 80 vs S80/S100 by Senna Van den Bosch
I'm thinking of upgrading my SDI C4 e-vario this winter in my DG-100. With limited space, I would be going for an 80mm one. I've seen some different options, like the LX S80/S100 and Era 80, but fail to see many differences. For what I do know from the cumulus-soaring.com comparison page is that...
