Occasionally h&f andPosted: Thu Feb 22, 2024 12:21 UTC (GMT 0)Topic Replies: 6 I'm not sure if the Skydrop by skybean.eu was mentioned. It is an option with excellent price / performance ratio. They have a display that's excellently readable in sunlight, it's all open source with active developer community and over the years they managed to push the hardware to the maximum with many features that I never[…]

The result was the longest flight of the day in Bassano and more than positive feedback. He said the Verve is fun, has excellent performance and gives a great sense of safety, Mac Para has made an excellent product. https://www.xcontest.org/italia/voli/dettaglio:luigigrandi/21.02.2024/10:30[/img] My personal[…]

Maybe the workaround (gap or loophole) for certification would be, to attach collapse-lines to already used canopy-connections. If a B-2-liner is possible, is it neccessary? Disadvantage of all multi-layer-liners: trimming is neccessary at[…]

    Author: TompeekLocation: NetherlandsSubject: Re: Convert turbulence into heightPosted: Thu Feb 22, 2024 7:59 UTC (GMT 0)Topic Replies: 6 I am not sure about the fundamental physics behind it, but to me it feels like this: most often with turbulence or small bubbles of lift, the wing pitches forward, effectively gaining airspeed. In response, pilots would use brakes/b-handles to stop the surge. This is effectively converting speed to height, resulting in lift. The efficiency of this is dictated by the leading[…]
