Not just a Jeep but a Rubicon :D!!   I remember when you were just a college student living off RC scraps.  Things have changed.......congrats on your new ride.  I will gladly accept any rides to the slope.  I had to give up the Subaru after the hail storm :( and now I drive a matchbox car

A couple days at Max Patch not too long ago...






Testing the air at Rarity Mountain...




Some of you may remember the big one from an entertaining, yet nearly disastrous aerotowing adventure. Finally in the air on the slope with 2lbs of weight in the nose. One 30 minute flight was enough.

Thanks to Tom In Tennessee for putting together the videos.

Found the video. Wasn't sure if I posted it already.

A day at Rarity Mountain in Jellico. Got to maiden my 20" Pixie built up as a sloper... then proceeded to smash it into the trees over and over. Good fun.

Agreed! It is a private hang gliding launch, but since it was too windy for that, we flew the RC slopers instead. We had a great afternoon and cast a whole new light on the site for the area hang gliders that were saying it was too windy to fly... they just didn't have the proper gliders for the conditions.  ;)

Some sloping in light winds at the Wright Memorial along the Outer Banks of North Carolina and a few tourist slides along the way...
