Here is some onboard footage of slope soaring, formation slope soaring, and dynamic soaring from FlyCamOne2.

This was an experiment if we could slope on 30ft rock side of dam and DS on 50' backside. It worked but a bit tight for laps and not much room for error! Oct 2008.

Glider is 1.5m (60") "sixty" or "epsilon 1.5". Approx 23oz RTF. Mine was Not a DS version but mixed carbon fiber fuselage. Awesome all-around thermal, slope, DS glider!

JR9303 2.4ghz and Spektrum 6200 receiver. You will see the whiskers in the video.

Just learning to go fast in East TN. Not the best location for DS, but it worked. This plane, known affectionately as "Red Tips", crashed on slope in KY, May 2009. RIP.
