Hi Lyle - Favourite sloper? Wow there's a question. I have a couple of EPP wings, one which will fly in light to moderate strength winds and the other which was designed as a EPP60 racer called a Balistik, and man it lives up to its name and is probably the fastest model I possess. I have a X Models Whisper 2m which I love flying in lighter winds, and a Valenta L-213 A 2.77m which is amazing. It needs a bit of wind so I won't fly it unless there is 20 mph forecast and it absolutely rocks in 40-50 mph.

Another vote for EPP wings! 40-50 mph winds!! Can you even stand up with that kind of velocity? I should think one could fly an outhouse at those wind speeds! Lol!
