Again! by [email protected]

What magic do the JS3 and Ventus 3 have that the ASG-29 Does not? by Bojack J4
After the definitive spanking these two new models gave to the previously dominant ASG-29, there has to be a superiority. So, what is it? (And yes, the pilot matters...but look at the results in 18m Worlds competition)

What has become of Gliding International? by 2G
I subscribed to the digital edition at the first of the year. I received access to one issue. Then the next issue came out and I couldn't access it.

I am in the middle of converting my Cobra trailer tongue from the round tube (broken) to the newer square tube type and find I am missing a part. There is a rubber/plastic plug that goes in the rear end of the square tube to keep debris and small critters from getting inside the trailer box. W&W...

Discus 2 Winglets by Ross[_3_]
I am on the hunt for a set of winglets that look like this: http://www.rcawsey.co.uk/n114tw.jpg I know Heinz made them, and I know there aren’t many about so if anyone would part with them I would be really happy I would also consider paying to have them scanned to make a mold Cheers

Flying with Parachutes by John Huthmaker
I'm just starting out with soaring. Simple question for you guys. How many of you fly with an emergency parachute? It looks like they cost around $2000 online. Pretty steep price; although the cost is insignificant if it saves your life. Is this something I should be looking to purchase?

Looking for a Schweizer ballast box by [email protected]
Our club bought a 1-26 and it came without the ballast arrangement for lightweight pilots. So we are looking for such, at least the box that holds the ballast (we have the "brick" itself available in our 2-33, presumably the same). Anybody got that part sitting around from a wrecked 1-26 or 2-33?

Just recently bought a Pawnee in Mt. Sterling , Illinois. Plan on possibly taking it apart to ship to Florida.
