PowerFlarm, ADS-B, GPS again!!! (please don't flame me) by SoaringXCellence
I know PowerFlarm and ADS-B have been discussed all over the net, but I was thinking today about something that I haven't seen (or been able to find): We have a PowerFlarm with a (apparently) good GPS system installed, Altitude encoder, and NMEA data stream output. We have a bunch of ADS-B (out)...

15 Meter Nationals by [email protected]
Way to go Danial Sazhin with a first place for the Duckhawk on day seven at the 15 meter nationals, a win for a young upcoming sailplane pilot, a win for a US made sailplane and another win for Windward Performance. Support "made in the USA".. it doesn't have to come from Europe any more.

Cambridge file conversions for OLC (yet again) by Steve Leonard[_2_]
So, everything was working fine, and the last two flights have not been accepted. In looking at the file that I can download from OLC, it does NOT have the same name as the file I uploaded. Is OLC once again unhappy with Cambridge and kicking out converted Cambridge Model 10/20/25 files? Only...

FAI, soaring and Olympic Games by iPilot
It's been under discussion for several times, but I want to bring it up again. There have been several pro's and con's towards soaring in Olympics, but nobody argues that it'd rise the popularity of the sport. So it is important for soaring community. Therefore my question is following: Wich way...

Handling differences between the 15m vs 16.6 ASW-20CL? by Gary[_5_]
This past week I purchased an ASW-20CL. Wondered if anyone has any thoughts on the handling qualities of the 2 configurations. The 15m version is equiped with Nixon winglets. The previous owner never flew with the extended tips so could not offer opinion or advice. Thanks, Gary Adams
