Question on E-Wings vs Slope

Hi Everone,

Can I remove a engine on a E-Wing and use it as a slope wing? Im new to the sport and deciding what I should get.

One more thing. Has anyone heard of John from Swift Wings before. Is he a good builder to buy from?

Thanks

Kevin

Sure you can.
Practically anything will fly on the slopes, if there is enough wind.
One thing will fly better than another of course.
You can also fly electric, and let the wind assist you.

Haven't heard of John, sorry.

Dirk.

Leave the motor on
If it's a weight thing your worried about, don't, if the winds good. i've got a couple of coro sloper wings that weigh 800 grams and the weight is no problem on good days. The weight actually helps penetrate into the wind and keeps the speed up
If the winds are a bit lame you've got the motor to keep going!
Get ready for flights that go as long as you can handle! HOURS!
Cheers
Paul
