Tow hitch on Mercedes ML 350 Bluetech by [email protected]
I was quoted $3,500 to $4,000 by the Mercedes Benz dealer to install a factory tow hitch on to a ML 350 Bluetech 2011! I was wondering if anyone else had this happen and if so, where did you go to have the work done and were you happy with it? I live in Southern Cal.

Roach Dry Lake Ground Launch Weekend by Dan Marotta
Checking to see if it's a go. Last I heard the usual place on the lake bed is reserved for April 17-19 but the Pawnee was out for recovering. Will the Pawnee be back in service by the appointed time? Will you trailer the gliders from Jean to the lake? We are planning our trip now... -- Dan...

Jump starting solo motor glider with automobile 12 volt starter by [email protected]
Could I use a car 12 volt jump cable starter, the kind that is a heavy duty rechargable battery used to start dead car batteries, to start my Ventus 2CXM if the battery runs down? Could I damage the electrics of the glider if I did so? Thanks, John Iacobucci

iPhone 6 Plus and iGlide by jfitch
Since the board seems kind of dead today (everyone getting their gliders ready for the season?) I will weigh in with a brief review of this combo. I like iGlide, which seems quite modern compared to the other commercial offerings and it pairs well with the Butterfly/Air variometer. Last year I was...

Soaring in China by Michael Ash
I'm going to China for a few weeks in October and I thought it would be nice to get in a little flying while I'm there. Unfortunately information on the subject seems hard to find. I've found a couple of posts in this group which didn't get much in the way of replies, and I found one article...

Encrypted Flarmnet files and 3rd party software by jfitch
I think this merits its own thread. Due to legal concerns, Flarmnet has encrypted their files, and as I understand it most displays including the Butterfly will no longer show pilot or glider information. This is separate from the opt in/out of tracking as I understand it. I liked the ability to...
