|Walter Jaburek of Vienna Austria
has scanned the complete Understanding Thermal Soaring Sailplanesseries
written by Martin Simons and created a single PDF which includesall of
the articles. This series of articles appeared in RCSDstarting
in January 1990 and ending in the November 1991 issue. Thereare direct
references to F3J, which had just been made an officialevent, but the
topics covered are easily related to all forms of RCsoaring. Topics
include the sailpane polar, weight and ballast,turning, drag, scale
effects, performance calculation, moment arms andtail volumes, and
horizontal stabilizer considerations, along withnumerous others. Well
