Anything, really... they're hard to crash once you get used to launching. Just keep them away from trees and land softly

But yeah you'd want a cheaper one as your first DLG...

The slope that I fly at found here:

Episode 36: Gorgeous, NEW Flying Spot, FPV Friendly! + Lots of PopWing Fun with Dad (7 min 40 sec)


...is 100' wide by 300' long (about)... I think it'll work for slope soaring with the right wind conditions!

It's probably about 40-60 feet high too...

I'm so unsure what to do.... I may just order up a 74" Edge, grab a PL8, and some 6S lipos now...
