Enjoy the great outdoors

What better way to spend the afternoon,
soaring your r/c glider effortlessly

R/C Slope Soaring

Slope soaring with an rc glider can be one of the most relaxing and straightforward ways of enjoying radio control flight.

It's simple stuff really - moving air (i.e. wind) generally follows the lie of the land. So when a wind is blowing towards the bottom of a slope, the flow of air will naturally be forced upwards to follow the rising ground.

Where the slope levels out at the top, the airflow will continue upwards to a higher level than the hilltop. It's this upwards flow of air that we use when slope soaring, to keep our gliders aloft.

Situated nearest to the village of Sabden, overlooking the Ribble Valley and the nearby town of Clitheroe.
