Cambridge L-Nav problem -- runaway vario by jherzog
I have a nagging, recurring problem with my trusty L-Nav. Occasionally, when I power the unit on, the lift tone sounds constantly, and the vario display is pegged at maximum lift (10 kts). It's clear that the problem is with the L-Nav, and not the electric vario display, as the tone continues to...

Anybody have a suggestion for how to easily get at the valve stem on an ASK-21 main wheel without dropping the shroud? Would like to make checking the pressure part of our club's daily routine, but hard to enforce if we have to unscrew the main gear fairing every time. Thanks...

Wanted: Schroth 4 or 5 point safety harness, loop ends, new condition by [email protected]
Before I buy a Davis, I'm hoping to find a Schroth aircraft safety harness for a Ventus B in new or very good condition. Connect points are loop in. Probably a long shot... Not completely sure but I don't think I've flown with a Davis harness, I'm sure it will be fine, but probably prefer...

Has anybody had any experience with rail shipping a glider in trailer? I'm looking at pre-owned gliders and after flying out to inspect the glider and purchasing, having to fly back to the west coast, load up the pickup and drive to New York sure would take the joy out of a glider purchase. I'm...

How does one obtain the best glider trailer tire performance and safety? by son_of_flubber
With a gross trailer weight of 1500 lbs., 13" rims, legal highway speeds, routine inspection for damage, moderate ambient temperature, proper inflation and the careful avoidance of potholes and curbs, I'd expect that a new tire with a service rating a notch higher than the expected usage would be...

Do trailers with coil springs and shock absorbers sway at higher speeds? by son_of_flubber
My Avionic trailer has leaf springs and no shocks and the rhythmic ass end sway that develops at higher speeds encourages me to keep the top speed at 60-65 mph. That speed is just fine with me except when interstate traffic if flying by at 80 mph. In that case I feel that I'm something of a...
