Assistance with Dittel FSG40 by [email protected]
Hi all, I need assistance with an old Dittel radio for a club glider. The manual suggests that it's possible to make it compatible with an amplifier type mic instead of a 200ohm dynamic mic. It apparently involves adding two resistors to the amplifier circuit, does anyone have the details for...

Rear view camera for tow plane? by Waveguru
We have a mirror on each side of the fuselage in our PA-25, just in front of the cockpit, and they are both convex, but if the glider is off to the side very much at all, you loose sight of it. Has anyone installed a rear view camera with a screen in the cockpit like a lot of newer cars now...

ASW 27 wing tip wheels by [email protected]
Does anyone have experience with wing tip wheels on an ASW 27 ? I am thinking about installing wing tip wheels on my ASW 27 (actually about 6-9 inches inboard of the wing tip). I was wondering if anyone has done this and how did it work for them. Did it change the handling characteristics? I am...

DG-200 Water Valve by S. Murry
One off the dump valves on my DG-200 is not completely closing. It seems that the spring mechanism that pushes down on the plug to seal it when you close the dump valve doesn't have enough "oomph" to completely close the valve. I suspect that a good cleaning might be all that is required, but if...

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)

Advice re. Nimbus 3 OR 4Dt? by John McLaughlin
I'm just coming back into gliding after a long time grounded and I'm looking to buy a glider over the winter. A two seater seems a nice idea and the Nimbus seems to be a lot of glider for the money. Are they in any way difficult or unpleasant to fly? I know there have been structural failures...

Silent Skies by [email protected]
I live in Great Meadows, NJ, about 4 miles northwest of Hackettstown Airport. This is a nice clear Saturday morning, and usually I would hear the occasional airplane engine as some SEL passes nearby, even once in a while the distinctive sound of a radial. But not today. And why? Because...

World-Wide Soaring Turnpoint Exchange by John Leibacher
Unfortunately, there are some issues with the primary site (soaringweb.org, and the mirror sites soaring.geichhorn.com, soaring.guenther-eichhorn.com, and soaring.gahsys.com), so their content may not be up-to-date, with a restoration of service probably not before the end of August ;-( However,...
