A wooden control stick grip by Tom BravoMike
The grip in my 1984 Ventus is worn out and a bit sticky. I have always thought it would be nice to have a wooden one, e.g.: https://www.cps-parts.com/catalog/elpages/taeakwoodgripstandard.php Anyone has tried something like that? Are they much bigger/thicker than the factory ones? BTW, which...

I noticed for the first time when flying at speeds above 200 km/h, my wingtips start to bend down a bit, has anyone ever noticed this? Glider is a DG-100.

Act now before your wings are defaced by [email protected]
Sorry, eh? I am sorry to interrupt your normally highly productive use of the internet. But your glider is at risk. It is only time separating you from the obvious damage coming to your aircraft soon. When I bought my first glass ship, the competition letters had been applied with EXTENSIVE use of...

Skysight by Dan Marotta
Looking at today's forecast for Moriarty, NM, USA for 1300 local time brings up a question.* I've always considered the thermal height, cloud base, etc., to be MSL altitudes.* Indeed, looking directly at Moriarty shows 11,500' which is reasonable given the time and date. Moving a bit west,...

Anybody know what happened to these HP-14s? by Steve Leonard[_2_]
So, there was this auction of "seized property" about three years ago. I was thinking about going, but talked myself out of it, as I figured I would end up with 4 HP-14 projects to bring home (Sorry, I was not going to bid on the last one. Even I have limits!). Anybody know where they went? 4...

2 Attachment(s) LAK17A Canopy Support Tube by Jimmyz
I was inspecting/adjusting my canopy this week and discovered that the canopy support tube (main shaft that connects canopy to fuselage in the nose) has a severe crack at the base. I was wondering if anyone is aware of another LAK17A (salvaged) that I might be able to find a replacement tube. I've...

I just noticed by Dan Marotta
On Skysight, when you hover your cursor over any location, a readout of the selected data is displayed. Is this a new development or was I just late in noticing?* BTW, I like it! -- Dan, 5J

Kawa rough landing? by Jonathan St. Cloud
Not sure how accurate FB translate is, but it appear as if Mr. Kawa had some sort of incident with an electric motor not working and a rough uphill landing. Gas, electric or jet be careful guys!

Sailplane repair recommendations by [email protected]
Hi - A friend of mine had his quite-sweet LS4 damaged in a tornado last September in Minnesota (no mud slides or earthquakes for us, no sireee). He is looking for a quality repair. The damage is non-structural. Anyone have a strong recommendation? He has seen the ads in the back of soaring but...

L-23 Loose Horizontal Stabilizer by Chris Snyder
We just noticed some play on our club L-23. It was detected in the stick while on tow with a forward CG. Does anyone have experience with a horizontal stab being loose on an L-23? The elevator auto-hookups have large pins, but it seems like there's no way to really tighten...

I disconnected the cables at the rudder horn, and it's clear the problem is in the rudder not elsewhere in the control circuit. Removed mylar seals without effect.

Landing with broken rudder cable by [email protected]
Long time ago I landed glider with broken rudder. Rudder cable broke during stopping spin rotation in aerobatic flight on 3000 feet, decided not to bail out to see if flying and landing is possible and to save the glider. Flying with "hardover rudder" (full deflection) was interesting experience....
