De-humidifier by Joe Lacour
It has been raining so much that I am getting a bit of mold on my LS-4A. What are some comments about using a de-humidifier inside the Komet trailer? How big of one to get? Put it on a timer? Fire safety? Joe Louisiana

Soaring on Mars by puffnfresh
Given the lesser density of air on Mars what would be the glide ratio of a PW-5 starting at an altitude of say 5000 feet? (lesser gravity, too) Is it worth book a trip in next few years?
