Slope Soaring

by FliteTest | April 5, 2011 | (7 Ratings) Posted in Tips

Josh and Josh go to their happy spot on the soap slopes of California. In what might very well be the last Hobby King sponsored show, Josh Bixler demonstrates the basics of slope soaring. The plane of choice is the Kinetic 800. Josh Scott helps with a little sink-chonized gesturing explaining the different zones around a soaring slope. There's even a few safety tips thrown in, such as do not fall off cliffs, and caution, little planes fly fast. Just remember to bring your repair tape and some bandages.

A ripper of an ep! JS was hilarious! Great entertainment value and an excellent concise intro to slope soaring! Now, if only the Kinetic did come with the motor installed :O

How about a set of Flitetest plans or a kit, I hate the words "they no longer sell them" so primitive!
