No-wind Sunday..."always bring a hand-launch glider to a slope event..."
quite a variety
of RC planes

So, out came electrics and floaters. Shown here (clockwise from upper left) is a Riva Models Just, a home-built floater, a Surprise 10, a "gas"-powered Stryker, and the Winchdoc teaching his son Slope'n 501 with a racey-looking sloper.

Electric-powered gliders are a poor substitute for pure slope gliders, but what can you do..? Photos are of a SBXC converted to electric and a Stratos and Stork electric.

Despite the lack of lift, 36 registered pilots brought great planes, attitudes, and enjoyment.
