slope gliding in phoenix 3.0

Haven't upgraded to 4.0 yet.

I learned to fly on slope gliders in socal and when I got phoenix the first thing I tried was slope gliding at monte farno. Did everything I could but never got it to work.

Today I decided to try again, but for some reason I grabbed a different flying location. Using the default weather and the aerobatic slope glider at the Country Side Hill scenery actually seems to work for me. Have not been able to get any other sites working.

seems to work ok in the 3D landscapes in 4, but I only messed with it for a bit.

The 2 reasons I got Phoenix instead of RF was because everyone said helis are better and the "demo" showed slope gliding. When I couldn't get it to work (even by creating what should have been ideal weather conditions) I posted a howto question here and another site and was told over and over it just doesn't work. Not sure why it suddenly decided to work for me, but I'm sure enjoying it.

I think it always worked, I dunno about v3 but in v4 it feels close as far as thermals go... still not right, but I haven't used a sim that was 100% yet. I don't know what slope is supposed to feel like...
