Diana-2 - master-piece or flop? by BlueCumulus[_2_]
I have read very good critics about Diana-2 but as well very bad news about it. The good news are from the people who seem to have flown the first two Prototypes. The bad rumors I heard about number-3 of Diana-2. Obviously the main difference is, that the wing position was shifted some centimeters...

TE probe up or down? by kirk.stant
It's raining at the field today so here is a serious soaring question to ponder: Should the end of the TE probe on the fin point up or down? Informal surveys at recent contests seem to show a slight preference for up (not counting those "swingers" that go both ways). I've heard all sorts of...

I flew the Sports Class Nats with Powerflarm Brick (v 3.0), Butterfly 57mm display (v 3.1). My experience last season was that flarm was a bit of a nuisance: in large gaggles the darned thing made more noise than my audio vario. As well, I found the "radar" tracking feature a useless...
