I do a bit of slope soaring and having a lot of fun with my first motor glider! It's nice to be able to hunt out thermals away from the slope with no fear.
It says your from San Diego ; so
where did Ya do your slope flying ? I made my living from selling Hang glider
rides over that nude-beach at Torry ; for about a decade.
That job did essentially , Squat, for my work ethic !! -------------------------

Bille that sounds like a job I would like!
Beats mending tellys for a living.

Had a 51 min thermal flight today with the p2k with the heavy 4 cell lifepo4 pack, so 2200mah lipo is obviously no problem for this bird.

Oh and I broke the hour barrier for dlg with a 63 min flight.
Summers on its way!

Flew Torrey a few times before they temporarily banned RC (I think it was after a mid-air with a parasailer). Had to get AMA card, pay to fly there and do all that. I prefer to fly at Lake Hodges, a few spots in Del Mar and off my back yard slope. And Daves Beach every blue moon.
