OLC FAI triangle geometry different than FAI by [email protected]

Still too many alerts and warnings by John Mittell
I have unchecked all but the critical warning. Does the vertical range limit the number of warnings by displaying only those threats within the bounds of vertical range. If so, what is a safe number, 500 feet?

LXNAV S80 Pilot Reports? by [email protected]
Would anyone care to comment on their experience with the LXNAV S80 vario? Pro's, con's, likes, dislikes, does it perform per manual specs, etc? On paper it looks like a very nice instrument. Thanks for any feedback. -Mark

OLC Grand Prix Standard Class at Wasserkuppe by [email protected]
http://gliderrace.onlinecontest.org/glider-race-wertung/2-wertungstag-sonntag-02-08-2015/ Good report on the OLC news-page. There is so little news on Standard Class, it is refreshing to see that flap-less gliders can still be flown at very good speeds. LS8 or Discus 2 does not seem to be matter...

Accounts of Parachuting Experiences by [email protected]
Michael: What sort of landings do the modern ram-air canopies give if the jumper does nothing to flare or otherwise control the touchdown? I was under the impression that a round chute can't give you the control and nice touchdown that a ram-air can but that it will deliver you reasonably safely...

Reminder to SPOT and InReach Sat tracker users... by Sean Fidler
All, This is probably rudimentary but today I have noticed several pilots today with Sat Trackers but no tracking during their flights. Remember that if you are flying in some "big" soaring location (or even your local club) with a SAT tracker that is NOT automatically "tracking" (pinging...

Airspeed indicator ? by [email protected]
My airspeed indicator seems to have devolved a leak and pitot pressure is causing readings on the old uncompensated winter vario. When I blow on the pitot tube and disconnect the static line of the airspeed indictor you can hear air moving through the static line from the airspeed indicator. Has...

Buoyancy/Shear Ratio by Soartech
What do you think about the BLIPMAP Buoyancy/Shear Ratio parameter? Is it accurate that less than 7 makes the day difficult to work? I have found lately that this seems to be true but my sample size is small. I am in the northeast US. Location is probably a factor.
