Why are so many Stemme S10-VT motorgliders for sale? by VARR
There appear to be a number of Stemme S10-VT motorgliders for sale. Take the wings and wheels motorglider listings. Usually I might see 1 for sale, today there are at least 4. http://wingsandwheels.com/want-ads10.htm Are these people already upgrading to the Antares? ;-) I'm not trolling, but...

Overspeed Recovery question by [email protected]
If you inadvertently fly into the yellow range and kiss the red range, and you get into the high speed vibration, what is the best way to slow before the wings depart the glider. My sense is to reach for the spoilers and slowly extend to slow. Any opinions on that matter?

Hi All - Below is the draft I sent to Spindelberger; nothing happened since; need to chase it... Problem is two-fold: - jack the top back to square - keep it there I received instructions starting "remove the top from the trailer"... Right.

Region 2 Photo Album by Paul Naton by Craig Funston
Paul posted some excellent pictures of the R2 contest on his flicker site. He's primarily an RC glider photographer, but he occasionally includes full size birds. Always nice when he does. https://www.flickr.com/photos/pnaton/ Craig

XC Skies by JS
For years I've used XC Skies GFS as my standard reference. Ar the moment, it seems to have turned to rubbish. The New South Wales maps have a lot of square or rectangular areas in which the model changes drastically. Knowing it can't be real, I've switched to the local RASP models (which are...

Pawnee with Tost internal tow rope system by kirk.stant
Our club (in the US) is looking at a Pawnee that has the Tost cable retractor winch system and we are curious about it's operation. For example, it appears that the rope requires a Tost weak link assembly at the glider end, but none at the towplane end. How are US operators setting it up? Tost...

Crossfeed in LS8 wing tanks? by [email protected]
I have an LS8sT (from DG) which is exhibiting the same problem, leaking from the outer tank to the inner tank - its a later one (post Sn 8500), and my manual says to fill the outer tanks first. Does anyone have any experience with these?

XCSoar no data No Connection Note 4, C302, K6BT by [email protected]
I'm not able to get data into XCSoar with my intended setup, nor with other phones I have tried. I bought a Samsung Note 4 because it has a large bright screen, I have heard others have had good luck with Note 2 and 3 and I assumed this would be even better. Are other getting a Note 4 to...

K2 vs. StarkPower LiFePo4 batteries by Fox Two[_2_]
Are there significant differences between these batteries? Why is there a 50% difference in their cost? I've noticed that some brands have more restrictive low temperature limits - not good for those cold wave flights! Chris
