Walter Jaburek of Vienna Austria has scanned the complete Understanding Thermal Soaring Sailplanes series written by Martin Simons and created a single PDF which includes all of the articles. This series of articles appeared in RCSD starting in January 1990 and ending in the November 1991 issue. There are direct references to F3J, which had just been made an official event but the topics covered are easily related to all forms of RC soaring. Topics include the sailplane polar, weight and ballast, turning,drag, scale effects, performance calculation, moment arms and tail volumes, and horizontal stabilizer considerations, along with numerous others. Well worth the 5.6MB download.

Very sad day - I have just downloaded the "LAST" edition of Soaring Digest. :cry: :cry: :cry:
I have been reading this e-mag for longer than I'd care to admit. It will be missed.
Thanks to the Kuhlmans' for keeping it going this long, its a credit to you.

I hope someone thinks really hard and decides to pick up the reigns to keep RCSD going. . . :?:

Good Luckand Thanks Bunny and Bill,

An honour indeed to have my old 2-32 on the front cover... RCSD will be sorely missed, it was always a heck of a read :cry:
