Hello All, I have been unable to load my LX7000 pro IGC which came in my new glider. I have a serial cable and a Windows Vista computer and have been able to establish contact between the two, but I have not been able to upload airspace or turnpoint files to the computer. I have sent the...

Schleicher cockpit by [email protected]
It's snowing and for entertainment sake I thought I'd throw this question out there. One of the selling points of the -24 and later Schleicher gliders is the "crashworthiness" of the fuselage. Waibel won the Ostiv, we've all seen pictures of the test rig dropping a fuselage after a simulated...

Hello, Does anyone have experience running XC Soar or Tophat Soaring on the newer Samsung Devices? The note 10 and S10 are reported to have brightness levels over 1000 nits. I’m guessing the previous 8 and 9 generations may also be pretty close for a lot less$ Cannot find much information out...

Trying to reach Glider Pilot April Johnson in Alabama by Paul Remde
Hi, A customer named April Johnson from Warrior, Alabama has ordered a few items from me recently, but the phone number she provided doesn't work and she hasn't replied to any emails. The orders seem legitimate. They are for soaring specific items - such as an ILEC SN10 USB Adapter. I'm...

Looking for someone to refinish your glider? by [email protected]
Amateur refinisher looking to take on some work for pay. 15 meter fuselage and stabilizer would be good, or I could do a set of wings. Could possibly do an entire glider, but might not be able to guarantee that completed by summer so it might be best to start with a partial project. Price would...

Interesting news, the entire Australian team has been penalised for unsporting behaviour on the last day.. A protest is currently being heard. The bun fight at the Keepit corral.

Glider repair health issues? by [email protected]
I have worked with fiberglass grinding dust and harsh chemicals like acrylic Urethane, lacquer thinner, etc. for the past 44 years, so I faked a chronic cough in order to get a CT scan. Just met with a Pulmonologist and got a clean bill of health! Heart, lungs, kidney and liver all look pretty...

WWGC USTeam by [email protected]
In addition to the hugely well deserved congratulations to Sarah, I also think it worth mentioning that nobody does this on their own. Sarah and her team mates would be the first to agree. Kudos to John Good for accomplishing a dream of being the team captain to a World Champion. His dedication to...

6'7" and looking for a glider by Rob[_10_]
I've been reading tall pilot threads here from a few years back, and I wanted to start a new thread. I'm 6'7" 230 lbs with a bit of a taller torso and I'm on the lookout for a glider. I've noticed that legroom isn't usually an issue, but with many gliders, closing the canopy is a problem. I've...
