Issues with Dell Streak by Wade G
Since I have been unable to get access to the XCSoar forum thus far, I thought I'd go ahead and post my questions here. I just got a used Dell Streak 5 that was previously an AT&T one. It appears it is Android 1.6 and seems to be functioning fine. I attempted to install XCSoar using wifi. I first...

What are the Pros and Cons of using the "ForeFlight Mobile EFB" appin Sailplanes as opposed to, say, "iGlide" or "navITer" ? by jstodaro
Hello everyone, Are there are any sailplane pilots out there who currently use/or have used the "ForeFlight Mobile EFB" app (on their iPhone/Android) for cross country/soaring ? I can't imagine there would be, but, I have to ask, as my 30-day-free-trial will expire on April 10th, 2017. Anyway,...

Soaring the Andes by Maurits Hebels
Hi everyone, Next January (or the one after that) I would love to spend a few weeks gliding in Chile. I tried contacting Vitacura near Santiago, but they are not responding. Are there people here who have experience flying in that area? Thanks

We need an ASW-19 rebirth for $25,000 by [email protected]
What we need in soaring is a new glider built for a reasonable price. $150,000 for a new glider is just not even a consideration for most people. Let's face it, you can get a low mileage Ferrari for half that price! The PW-5 was a terrible failure. The engineers made the wingspan too short,...

Colditz Glider on NOVA PBS - USA by Charlie M. (UH & 002 owner/pilot)
I just saw another version, also on NOVA. It was done in 2011 and they actually built the glider and launched it off the roof as originally planned. They flew it via radio control, made it out of the prison and could have done a landing but were getting close to houses. Looked like they had people...
