Digital altimeters by [email protected]
Tried of the 57mm Winter altimeter being too inaccurate even after being re-calibrated. Being EXPERIMENTAL, going to look into digital. Going to look at MGL Vega ASV-1 first as it displays altitude and airspeed. http://www.mglavionics.com/html/vega_color_singles.html Anyone had experience with...

126 Championships by [email protected]
Hey Guys, We had just concluded a fantastic 1-26 Championship in Caesar Creek, with five days of super flying, with challenging tasking that was rewarding for beginners and advanced pilots. Chuck Lohre did a fantastic job of contest reporting and the social events were great. The 1-26 is truly a...

Glider Related Presentations Available by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
Over the years I have put together some glider related presentations and information that you might find useful. They have variously been presented at SSA conventions, ChicagoLand Glider Council meetings, regional contests and created just for fun, dang it. Think of them as my brain dumps to...

1202 Transponder Squawk Code - In a Tow Plane? by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
Just wondering about something. Those of us with transponders in our gliders squawk 1202. Hurrah for our unique code. As I understand it other VFR aircraft with transponders typically squawk 1200. I would assume that at many gliderports few of the gliders have a transponder due to the cost...

Trailer license problem by PapaTango of Indiana
I purchased a glider. FAA registration was done with the FAA bill of sale, had no problem. The trailer and the glider are in Pennsylvania, have no license plate and have only a 10 years old registration from Florida. It never accrued to me that my Indiana state license office will not accept the...

Pawnee by Charles Longley
I am not sure who is the SGC ship captain on the Pawnee. I flew it the other day to help out Duane. Is that a FLARM on top of the instrument panel? If so how does it work? Scott was asking me about a good source for Pawnee parts. My first choice is Univair then Johnston Aircraft in California.

Grob G103 canopy transparencies made in the USA by Bob Kuykendall
I'm considering tooling up to make replacement canopy transparencies for existing sailplanes, or at least to have them made for me. I've seen a few requests for G103 canopies, so I thought I'd start there. What I am thinking of is precision stretch-formed transparencies made over internal mandrels...

TT21/TN72 power consumption by jfitch
For those of you contemplating this, I've made some rough power measurements. Sitting in my shop with a clear view towards the airport, the TT21 is reporting nearly constant interrogations, and drawing between 120 and 150 ma. The TN72 alone draws about 70 ma. When both are powered and broadcasting...

Pee receptacle by Poppy Puppy
Some years ago a friend had a pee receptacle that, when stored, looked like a 35mm film container (remember those?), but contained a bladder that held about a litre of fluid. Does anyone know of the product its name, and who stocks them?

Aileron "tuning" or "trimming" by [email protected]
Hi all, I have a PW-5 that requires side pressure on the stick at all times to correct a tendency to bank to the right. More pronounced at higher speeds, of course. Wing tape helps a little but doesn't eliminate it. But there is a visible tiny difference in aileron position from one side to the...

Radios for free! by Terry Slater
I have 1 Filser ATR500 panel mount and 1 ICOM A22E handheld free to a good home, preferably for a youth gliding group. You pay the shipping from the UK. Both units are serviceable, removed from use as we now have 8.33 KHz channel spacing in Europe. Terry Slater

GPS vs Gliding Computer by Mike Reid
Right after I win the lottery, I'm going to buy a Stemme. I've never flown a glider with either a GPS unit or a gliding computer, and I see that the Stemme comes with both. What do you get with one that you don't get with the other, and vice versa? Any information would be appreciated. Mike

A couple of years ago I purchased a brand new MicroAir 760 tranceiver. I kept it in the box, planning on exchanging it, as my trusty old Dittel FSG60m was starting to make funny noises and not quite act right...When the Dittel finally gave up the ghost one day, I set to installing the MicroAir. My...
