Northeast Sailplane Products Shark Slope Glider ARF. 60" wingspan. AUW 710g.



The ARF Kit was purchased at the Baylands barbecue, raffle , fly-in, and swap meet organized by Ray M.

Sean dared me to purchase this kit , and I did it (while he was not looking) .

Maiden flight at Coyote Hills.

Flying with Chad, who gave a few pointers on trimming and CG location.

Notice the scary launch, his launches were much better after trimming ! Many Thanks Chad .

This is my first real slope racer plane and I am very happy with it !
