I have a Ventus and it has a remote fill extension for the oxygen tank. It requires an adapter to allow a male CGA -540 to fill the tank. Does anyone know what that adapter is and where to buy one? Dennis DC

My Nano suddenly started acting up. The computer won't recognize it and keeps giving a mass storage device malfunction message. We've tried different cables and computers with the same results. You can take the chip out and download the flights fine, the computer just won't recognize the Nano. ...

Not so much as a scratch (R4S at New Castle) by Tango Eight
I think we may have set a regional contest record for non-completions at R4S at New Castle this year. Every day shut off like a switch, not always in a predictable way or at a predictable time. Happily, conservatism ruled the day. The vast majority of the incomplete tasks resulted in landings...

Glider Handling Question by Roy B.
In this month's Gliding International article on the Ventus 3, Aldo Cernezzi writes, "According to Berd Weber, I flew with a relatively forward CoG, which may have an impact on roll speed". This got me to thinking of my own anecdotal experiences with very forward CGs having a negative impact on...
