Vans RV-G glider by Mark James Boyd
Hmmm.... I was wondering if metal gliders have an L/D disadvantage due to the metal, or because of the lousy rivets and poor wing airfoil and draggy struts (of the SGS gliders, for example). Is it possible to make a retract gear metal glider with flush rivets and a carry-through spar which would...

Newbie question by Bill Gribble
Completely daft newbie question that I'm hoping will have a simple answer. Mention is frequently made of the term L/D, which I know is an abbreviation of Lift / Drag. For example, the L/D cited in an advert for a Ka6 recently was "L/d 33" If L/D is the Lift/Drag ratio, why are the figures...

elevator /pitch control by John Firth
There was a story in S&G some years ago about a ASW 20 sucessfully landed without damage by use of flap changes; the pilot had read the manual. Following the fatal crash of a Cessna 150/150 hp two plane, due to a burned throughj elevator cable, two of us tow pilots experimented with pitch trim on...

Winch Way Is Up !! by Craig Freeman
It's intriguing how much attention any post about winch launching seems to generate here on RAS. I must admit I, like most here in the USA, cried "foul" or was it"fool" any time one would suggest that winching could be a viable alternative to the much perferred aero tow. Shame on me. Perhaps it's...

Cutting plasma rope by Robert Makin

New EU Subsidy rules good for Gliding? by Stephen Haley

First Post: Hello! by Tobeon
Just a first post to say Hello! I just found this whole news group thing and was very happy to find a soaring newsgroup (though I haven't been gliding for several months due to school and huge lack of funds! No!) which is very bad as I just went solo and then couldn't go. I must save up some...

Cleaning a 3-way TE probe by Jack Glendening
I have a vertical-stabilizer mounted TE probe of the type that has 3 ports: ram, static, and venturi. I have been having problems with my varios and LNAV and had previously checked out the plumbing but had only looked at the "outside" end of the TE probe itself, which I remove after each flight. ...

News Flash: You don't need elevator control ! by nowhere
Yes, according to Peter Garrison's "Aftermath" column in the November issue of "Flying" you don't need to connect your elevator control! I quote: "the NTSB report does not comment on the fact that a disconnected elevator does not make an ASW-20, or for that matter any other airplane, unflyable. The...

Canopy repairs by Jay Todd
OK - I've done the Google search on this subject, printed out all the suggestions, purchased the Acrifix and even have a beat up old canopy to practice on before I work on the real thing.
