    Tom Currier Is there a standard radio channel for x country flying? I've been using the local airport channels as I get close to an airport but wondering if there's a general aviation channel that I should be using to announce my position and path. No transponder here and a weak, Icom A6 radio so I can't expect to transmit very far.

    Nothing wrong with being uncomfortable with ridge rotors henry. Any ridge soaring hang glider pilots learn very quickly about the severity of ridge rotors. Even up and over landing backside can be a rocky scarry ride. You are a smart flyer henry and ...

    White Eagle, we were flying over the park around 11am. Patchy snow remaining and dark gravel ground exposed made small thermals everywhere. Plus some rotors from the ridges made me uncomfortable to fly low or near ridges.

    WE, When you say your output is to low to run the gloves, I am not sure what that means? If you can read your voltage that will tell you what is happening. Should be ABOUT 12.2 volts just sitting there no engine running. Above that for charging and ...

    Flying in ther winter can be warm and comfy. Everyone has their own ideas about this. I have tried to simply bundle up and use those heated pads. This helps but does not cut it for a professional trike operation in the winter. I need to ...

    I use the ThermaCell heated electric shoe insoles. They are rechargeable and have a remote that you can turn them on low, high or off, I just clip the remote to my jacket. They work well, about $130-140.00 at Gander Mountain. You can also trim them ...
