Tailwind Gliders New Tips Page

I added a page to my website called "Soaring and Building Tips".

These are some of my favorite videos, forum postings and general information from the folks who make and are continuing to make my soaring hobby great!

Thanks

Mr DLGjunkyard, My link takes me to the same place as yours except yours only shows the single post and mine takes me to the entire thread, but they both start at the same post.

What are you seeing that I'm not? I'm using Firefox as my browser? Hmm.

Thanks
Curtis

The post I linked to is page 25 I believe.

Just trying to help ,please dont take any offence, Perhaps its my browser setting but I also use firefox

Nice.

I just found this link today on RCG for what I thought was lost. Old NSP articles.

Enjoy,

Jared

I found a long lost tutorial that was written by Jim D. Burch an FAA designated sailplane examiner.

I added it to the the Tips page and it's called: Performance Airspeeds for the Soaring Challenged

This is a fabulous article that will give the reader more insight as to why it's best to fly at a faster or slower speed when thermal searching.

Enjoy
Curtis
