FSG71M question by AS
Does someone know how to change the memory battery of a FSG71M radio? There seems to be an upper and lower cover on it, each held on by four (4) screws. Is the battery hiding under one of those? Also, what battery type is it? Is it a type that is freely available or is it a super-special...

Updating to Flarm 6.42 seems to fail? by jfitch
I tried updating my PowerFlarm to 6.42, expires in 11/19. It has 6.40 now, expires 2/19. It persistently does not update. The log file says it found the firmware file, confirmed its applicability, copies it to memory. But subsequently it comes up reporting 6.40, expiring 2/19. It also reports this...

Hero emulation by son_of_flubber
I stumbled across a young 150 hour glider pilot online, who had recently seen a low pass on a Grand Prix video. He thought 'that was neat', and so he decided to 'try that at home' on his own. He landed cleanly on his first attempt.

On the subject of low altitude training: Dennis Gallotti wrote an excellent letter to Soaring, IIRC sometime 1984-1986, about visual effects that cause problems with low-altitude turns. I've misplaced it, and a couple folks have asked me about it... Anybody know where to find this? Thanks! Best...

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...

RAS SPAM - What can be done? by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
We are seeing an increased amount of SPAM on RAS (rec.aviation.soaring). I have seen this before on other rec.xxx.xxx network news groups and the group becomes basically 100% SPAM. A great shame. We need to fight to keep RAS a good place for discussions. Many groups have simply exited network...
