Polar diagrams and L/D by Jim[_33_]

Discus b versus Discus CS by [email protected]
I've read that the Discus b and Discus CS are "identical" except that the CS is manufactured under license in Czech Republic. Both are, of course, available in the used-glider-market. Are there any differences in reliability, manufacturing qualty, etc that would favor one over the other? Tom

Looking for Sign Warning of Tow Rope Hazard by George Haeh
After some hunters blundered onto our field because a hunting app misled them into believing it was public land, we have decided to post signage. I once saw a sign showing a car getting dinged by a tow rope link. Does anyone know where I can find a digital copy?

Balleka videos have been deleted from YouTube by [email protected]
I was sad to notice this morning that all of Balleka's videos have been deleted from YouTube. I owe my interest in the sport to those videos. Though I'm sure the family has their reasons for wanting them gone, it feels like part of Matt's legacy has been destroyed.
