Slope Racing...

Postby Roger » Thu May 13, 2010 8:30 am

I've got an old dunga of an F3b glider that still seems to fly remarkably well given the state of its wings and the ye olde futaba servos in it. When I finally decide to replace it, what should I look for in a racing slope glider? I've been flying slope for 11 years, and haven't been interested in racing up until now. I've just aquired a Zipper 60" flying wing and finished building it, and i've also got a Reaper 60" up and running finally too (Set up similar to a Raven 2 piece wing). Both are fast, but I still think that a conventional 3m F3B type glider should be faster. PS our best slope racing site is Raglan, do a youtube search and you will find quite a few of our videos posted up there now.

So what did you get, Roger? I have a 2.8 meter Aeromod Alliaj (French) that I like a lot. Unfortunately, no one in our club is interested in racing anything other than a JW, so it's only for slope soaring.
