What better way to spend the afternoon,

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.
