There are so many great facets to RC Soaring. Thermal Duration, slope and DLG have always been a big part of my flying life, but over the past several years, more and more, scale soaring it taking over. Such great fun -- and something that includes the best of many elements of RC flying.
The rumor mill says aerotowing is both difficult and expensive. Neither is true. Many guys start with an electric tow plane from an inexpensive ARF and a foamie glider like the EzGlider or something similar in the 2 meter range. Sure, many of us get the bug and start spending thousands and investing hundreds of hours in builds. Just as many are thoroughly happy to just keep it simple and have lots of fun! This hobby can be what you want it to be.
If I can help anyone visiting here on my blog simply try or get into scale soaring (aerotow or slope), please do not hesitate to reach out to me. There is no question too basic, no concern we can't work through. Let's talk. Post here or send me a PM.
