Cool
Slopie noises

We here in NZ had a great session playing/ learning DSing and I thought, lets start a thread of loudest slopie.

So here goes with no.1, the swift composite at the end of the clip.
DS at the windfarm.mpg (9 min 12 sec)

A Superblade or Vento in the roll. Like a Picolo-Pete.

Aw, c'mon mate. I have a slow broadband, it'll take me ages to load 9 minutes of video so as to only watch something at the end of the clip. Any chance of an edit ?

Try dopping the quality down to 240p, that might help.

Nice vid pope!

You don't need to load the whole video. Just click the slider bar to move it to the right, toward the end of the clip. It will only load the video from that point forward.

I make airplane noises while working in the shop. Does that count?

Soooo...
What exactly creates that desirable sound?

I know, some say it's an inefficient airflow over the control surfaces....
Yet some wings with wipers do and others don't!
Is it the tempered skins on a hollow moulded wing?
I would happily sacrifice some speed to achieve the sound!
My recently completed hollow wing is strangely mute except for the rapid roll squeal.

Just wondering....

Expose your aileron pushrods to the airflow some call it a great sound but most call it drag, damn addictive though

Exposed pushrods whistle but some moldies with covered pushrods, and wipers really sing,
like my old Fazer F3J.
Sounds of Fazer F3J glider DSing at Jones Pass (2 min 28 sec)

All wing surfaces are bottom hinged, top drive with the linkage mostly internal to the wing with
small covers over the horns. All surfaces have wipers.

Haha Steve, that sounds just like my Glass one!
My 60" Zipper makes a pretty sweet noise. Foam cores, ply/glass skins, internal pushrods on this one. Get yours from www.offtheedge.com.au
