I think that's only painted to look like correx.

Great workmanship!

Maitlands is Back!

Inbetween showers and on the tail-end of a gale-force wind my son and I had an awesome hour at Maitlands yesterday evening! We flew mainly the Pilatus PC7 Mk2's after I removed the prop and wheels of the powered model, to facilitate a bit of dogfighting... At the end I also tried my Red Eagle glider and it performed very well as a sloper.
Hope you enjoy the videos - and hopefully the PE slope rebels are inspired to get back on the slopes soon!

Maitlands - Freedom

Agree with Daves' comments- and videos and music really convey that wonderful feeling of freedom you get when you slope soar.

thnks for posting
