I am a big guy and on a limited budget, the Jantar 2b is an option, big cockpit good performance etc ,I have flown a standard Jantar when I was doing a lot of hours in an ASW19 and found it different but good glider.

Anyone flown a SHK-1? by [email protected]

OUDIE 1 OR OUDIE 2? by James Hamilton[_2_]
I have a Naviter Oudie that came with a used glider I bought 2 years ago. I've had nothing but trouble with the unit even though I keep the firmware (software?) updated with the Oudie Updater (now version 9.02.001). Recently it occurred to me that the unit I have may not be an Oudie 2. I...

Solid Red LED after Flarm update to 6.80 by [email protected]
I just updated my PowerFlarm to v6.80 and after the update I'm now getting a solid "red" LED rather than the usual "Green". PowerFlarm feeds Butterfly display and LXNav S80/Oudie 2. All show reception of GPS signal from Flarm and Flarm targets are displayed on all. I've looked at the .TXT file...

Ventus rigging advice, please? by John McLaughlin
I've recently started flying a Ventus2. I can't rig the thing without a lot of struggle. The trouble is, there's a cover above the spars and you can't see anything once the first wing is in. I struggle to get the second wing to fit, never knowing whether it's a bit too high or a bit too low....

Tragedy at Uvalde by Waveguru
This is copied from the SSA web site: As with all race days, the pilots gather in the tiedown area to describe the highs and lows of the task and enjoy a cold beverage with friends and the end of Day 3 began that same way. By 7 pm everyone was back except Steven Coggins flying JS-1 “DT”. With...

Garmin Aera 660 vs ifly 720 by [email protected]
So my Garmin 196 gave up the ghost and is not updatable anyway. So Im looking to replace it with one of the two above. One big question is (and I searched both manuals before asking this) do either of them give the current required glide ratio to a point? My 196 did and I had it on my custom field....

Colibri II *.hdr file software by M S
Apparently there is a difference between setting a task and making a declaration in a Colibri II. I can import a task easily enough from a *.cup file, and modify it on the logger. It leads me around the task as it should, bleeps at the turnpoints, and directs me to the next one. If however, I...

Colibri data recorder date error by [email protected]
I tried to post a recent flight to the OLC only to have it rejected due an improper date being associated with the flight. It showed as 1999 as the year and from what I have read and been told this has something to do with the Colibri GPS engine not being able to register the date from the GPS...

Strojnik motorglider by Wallace Berry
Hi, A friend who has had a few glider flights asked me about the Strojnik S-2a motorglider. Apparently, he has seen one for sale somewhere. I suspect this will not be a suitable ship for him. However, his questions made me realize that I have no real information about the ship, just some vague...

Pilatus B4? by Terry Pitts
I have periodically seen Pilatus B4s for sale. Mostly in the mid-teen price range. There was one in Germany a couple years ago for $5,500 w/o a trailer - THAT wasn't going to work! I have come to enjoy glider aerobatics. I live in Augusta, GA. If someone were to have a Pilatus they wanted to sell,...
