I have slope soared a couple of times with the Radian Pro and it is a lot of fun. I tried again yesterday but there was barely a breeze and no lift to speak of. It would have been more fun with the Radian. I want to try it with the Radian for sure. The landings up on the mountain are not foam-friendly, and I did some damage to the RP on a sharp rock. Gotta keep practicing those hand-catches.
The scenario I was describing earlier occurred on flat ground, and although it might have looked to the other people that it was just hanging by itself, I was actually very busy operating the elevator stick to make it happen.
