Fantastic Video of RC Paragliding

If this video of RC paragliding doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will. It showcases an Opale Split 1.6 paraglider up in the Sareis mountains of Liechtenstein. It's a beautiful location and the conditions look pretty strong, but that doesn't stop the pilot from having a great time. The flying puts on a show with great precision control, ridge soaring and advanced aerobatics. The Split 1.6 handles it all like a champ. I really wish I had a site like that near me, it's just breathtaking and I'm sure it's even more so in person.

What's your favorite place to fly your RC paraglider?

Sorry, but Sareis is NOT in Switzerland, it's in Liechtenstein, a different country, bordering to Switzerland. The video even says so.

Beautiful. I think you can see about 70% of the country in that video!

I'm a big fan of soaring RC paragliders. For years I motored around but the past couple I've been focused on soaring.

I'm very familiar with a couple coastal spots in San Diego, California. Now I routinely monitor winds and weather and like soaring along the coast when the winds are right.

I motor around when the winds are light. Once the winds pick up I want to soar!
