Slope Soaring in Ireland
Slope soaring offers flying experiences not found in other types of RC model flying. You can lazily fly along the hill with a ‘floater’, or make high speed runs, slope race with others, perform aerobatics or fly combat. There is something for every skill level of pilot. Besides being a lot of fun, how many other model pilots do you know who really look forward to having the wind blow?

Micro Aerobatic glider to bring and fly everywhere!
Sometimes, you just design a glider, more for the laugh than anything else, and then forget about it... This is the case for the Micro Quark presented here. I designed it at the same time as the Quark 2M, just because.. Well, why not! :) I gave a few kits to friends if they wanted to play with it, and I have to say, I did not thought much about it, and concentrated my attention to the Quark 2M and its success that followed.
Looking for somewhere to fly?
