    slope or thermal? I used to live near Torrey Pines Gliderport and flew RC at the north end of the slope. when the wind blew straight in at 20+ knots the lead sleds came out--what a rush!

    Here in Florida we fly mostly thermal. I met a guy at the flying field one day who was one of the best sailplane pilots in the country and he had the trophies to back it up. He was in an elite group of RC sailplane pilots that had kept a sailplane in the air for 8 hours without landing. He used a spot in Florida called Bel Aire Bluffs. The wind was blowing in and it was a bit chilly so he propped up a piece of plywood in front of him and launched the plane. An hour or so later the cops were called because the residents didn't like the look of the plywood and they made him take it down. About 1/2 way through the day he had to take a dump so he propped the plywood back up, did his business and took the plywood back down. The cops came back and he told them what he had to do and they left him alone after that. BTW, for folks that don't know, the slope sailplanes are the fastest RC planes there are and they don't even have a motor. My thermal planes have electric motors to get a few hundred feet up and then you shut the motor off and the prop folds. I have been so high up I have lost sight of the sailplane. You have to make the plane "dirty" by holding the elevator full up and the rudder full to one side. If you try to dive the plane to get it down you can get going so fast you can flap the wings right off of them. Experience is speaking here, lol.

    Another life long RC fan. Never tried slope soaring but thermals with sailplanes, I have. Mostly enjoy helicopters and airplanes as far as flying and am proficient with aerobatics, precision, pattern, 3D. There was a time I was really into car racing both off and on road (have not raced since the 90's). Another words if it is radio controlled, I like it! I am mostly into building scale trucks these days as I love to wrench on stuff, build models and airbrush and the scale trucks let me enjoy all three. Just finished up a "Post Apocalyptic" zombie escape vehicle. Jeep XJ Cherokee build. Fun project. Way too many of toys but the grandkids will have a blast one day playing with them all haha.

    I decided to write a novel. A murder mystery. I never tried this before and I learned a lot while having fun. I self published the book and it has five star reviews on Amazon. I don't need the money so I donate whatever Amazon sends me to my Kiwanis club for Children's charities in town. The title is "What You Wish For" Kindle downloads and paperback is available on Amazon. I wrote it for fun and it's very gratifying to have other people enjoy it.
