Wing Rigger by Dan Marotta
Unsolicited kudos: Yesterday was not much of a flying day so my wife and I took a long walk around the airport at Moriarty. As we approached the hangars of Mark Mocho and Bob Carlton, we saw them fiddling with an Arcus and stopped in to chat and watch. They were doing final tasks on a jet...

Buying a glider, advice on type and prices by John[_37_]
Returned to gliding after many years and out of touch with types and prices. Have narrowed it down to one of these types but nothing set in concrete. ASW20, ASW27, ASW28, Discus, Discus 2 or Ventus. Was originally looking to buy a lower cost glider but with interest rates being so poor, I am...

Cobra trailer bumper by Wade G
Who knows if there is a rubber bumper stripping out there that will work on the Cobra trailer's top without being the expensive Cobra brand? I can't imagine it's only manufactured for Cobra.

Sisu 1a, s/n 101, N6390X by Paul Hanson
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the destruction of Sisu 1a, s/n 101, N6390X. We had a big storm blow through Avenal Ca and there was much damage. She was tied out (claw anchors, ratchet straps with screw shackles, wings on stands, tail elevated) but the ground liquefied and it was...

Boy Who Flew With Condors - Dick Johnson? Other Comments by ContestID67
I finally got around to watching this 1967 movie which I bought on eBay more than a month ago. It was surprisingly well done. Not that Walt ever put out a bad product, his production values were always top notch. However, when the popular media shows soaring, I often see realism and accuracy go...

Can't Download Flight Log From ClearNav Vario by Dan Marotta
I can navigate to the Tools/Downloads page and select the file. When pressing the bottom right button the display says "Downloading" and then "Error". I've reformatted my thumb drive and tried downloading the file that I downloaded from my previous flight but today's file won't download. BTW,...

No idea what one used to sell for, as i can't seem to find any for price comparison. $350 or tell me that i'm an...

Dittel KRT2 disfunction by okko kloosterman
Last week, after a few months of proper functioning, the new KRT2 radio I have installed this spring suddenly stopped transmitting. Pressing the PTT button makes it send a carrier wave, but without any modulation. The receiving section is OK, though. Anyone run into the same problem? Any hints...

Power Flarm Problems by Charlie Flagg
After addressing other issues with a new ship, I tackled the Power Flarm early this summer. I read the manual, talked to folks and generated a configuration file using the online flarm configuration tool on the flarm.com site. After some hesitance, the configuration loaded and the Power Flarm and...

Newish radio isn't loud enough by HGXC[_4_]
I just replaced an older Becker radio with a 4201. Everything is great except that the volume is noticeably lower and I can barely hear transmissions. I am using the same wiring as I was able to plug into the old harness fine.. I transmit loud enough its just receiving is low at max volume. Any...

Clip-on mic by Wade G
Has anyone come up with a clip-on mic for the radio in lieu of the boom? My DG-303 boom is a little too short, doesn't bend well, and never stays where I need it (um....that all sounds very Freudian...) I have pondered replacing the boom with a lapel type clip-on mic or even a 'through-the-throat"...

Short soaring documentary by Chris Snyder
Our flying club was fortunate to have a Media Studies student make a short documentary about soaring (she flew gliders as a youth). Work like this could help to share the sport with prospective pilots. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/_uXFl0gNNEs

Transcontinental by Auxvache
This is the sort of dumb aloud-wondering usually reserved for the soaring off-season, but... How many days or weeks do you think it would take to fly a sailplane across the continental U.S. or Canada? Really fly it--no trailering as has been necessary during the Smirnoff Derby and Return to...
