Hi I am fairly new to rc flying and fly a 2m electric RES glider at the moment plus I fly (badly) power models but I'm leaning towards gliders and particularly slope flying as i live on Dartmoor. To this end i have built a slope aileron trainer but I'm going to try a rudder elevator slope trainer first. I also have been given an old 140" I think f3 glider all of which I hope to get some slope experience this year. Then fingers crossed I can build a scale glider next winter that's why I'm here to get some advice and read some threads.

Hi Dave, may I give some advice on a suitable trainer model for the slope ? We found in the "old" days that it was better to go straight into an aileron trainer rather than rudder / elevator models. For instance the Chris Foss Middle Phase came in two versions and the aileron version was easy to fly and tough. Happy flying. Regards John.
