Tost Lilliput brake question by Hartley Falbaum[_2_]
I am trying to improve the brakes on a Libelle 201B. I replaced the shoes and de-glazed the drum recently but not much help. I trued the drum on a mandrel in a 10" Clausing lathe. I mounted the backing plate and shoes on another mandrel, intending to true the shoes, but got readings that told me...

S80 vario decoupling by [email protected]
Is there any way to "decouple" the S80? That is, get it to display one MacCready setting for speed to fly while showing another (higher) MacCready setting for required altitude to destination? I don't see a way to do it but hopefully I'm missing something. I like the vario so much my willingness...

Escaping glider on the ground with stuck canopy? by Steve Koerner
I'm hypothesising about a certain risk scenario that could happen: landing somewhere or crashing somewhere and canopy won't open. If it's hot especially, one might not last long enough for help to arrive if summoned by phone or radio. My question is how to get through a canopy that's stuck or has...

Cobra Trailer Brakes by [email protected]
Having just installed new brake drums, bearings, backing plates, and brakes on my 2011 year Cobra (New because I burnt up the original ones on the way to Perry, a long post on that later) I am quite sensitive to how hot the brakes should get in normal operation. I am sure that all the new items...
