The Royal Australian Slopetrash

This thread has been created to cater for the need of the discerning rebel aero modeler who believes that:

Due to popular demand this thread has been renamed the Royal Australian Slope Trash - now RAST to better accommodate the rest of our mates, and to confuse the codgers. So remember gents, it's all fun and games and:

a) fast is good,
b) low is best,
c) fun is foremost.

So for a means of communicating upcoming days where the Victorian Slopetrash is let loose this little place on RCG should do nicely.

Attached is a veeedeeeoooo of what we all like to do.

RC Soaring - Victorian Slopetrash (5 min 5 sec)


Update in 2012 - made the title a little moar concise.

Sam,
slopetrash.

Concur, the Aussie RVST is wholeheartedly affiliated with the Canadian RVST.

We just need Andy to give us the Royal Blessing, which I am anticipating.

Hey Sam, I want to come down under in 2009 for a slope safari.

I am hoping for two to three weeks there will allow the wife and I to split the time equally between vacation site seeing and flying.

Gentle ladies are always welcome. You should know that Marty - just need to give her a good name: Taken already are:

- Britney (Micks JDub)
- Ling Ling (My busted arse Skua)
- Paris (Your JDub)
- Lindsay (as in Lohan... my Swift)

However there is a long list of celebrity tartlets out there...

In case anyone is wondering, pre-requiste for entry to the RVST is a model named after a dirty mole celebrity...

Sam.

You call this mob Royal . I can personally vouch for a few of them & what it takes to get them to a slope . Their RCG names have been changed to protect the guilty .

Sam, He`ll go, but only if it`s 40 knotts with rain squalls
Bruce He`ll go , but only if someone else builds his planes
Anton He`ll go , but only if it`s at Cairns bay
Shane & his Kurrambura mates , they`ll go , but only if it`s less than a 5 k drive
Roger He`ll go , but only if there`s ds involved
Jason & the Island boys , they`ll go , so long as the slope is within an 8 k radios of home .
Mick , He`ll go , but he usually wanders of from the main slope to try & ds behind a 3 foot high tree .
Marty , He`ll go , but only if he gets to crash one of his planes .
