I got back late Monday from the LEG Slopefest in Kansas. What a great time. if you are a slope soaring enthusiast I’d get ready for the 2009 version (2008 will be the bi-annual Soar Utah event and Jack is running opposite it.)
We had great weather but a bit light on the wind. That was no big deal if you were prepared and brought several different types of RC planes to fly. RC slope soaring is kind o like fishing. You need the right equipment for the conditions and type of game you are going for. It gives us an excuse to have multiple planes so that we can fly in winds from 3mph all the way up to 70mph. No wind? Make your own with a prop!
