Cheap micro slope soar gliders
When the weather is nice its good to fly outdoors
Simon and I found these super cheap little foam "toy" gliders.
They cost about Ł3 ($5) and are ideal for conversion to R/C
Simon did this and wrote an article about his.
It uses cheap park fly servos and has detachable wings. Simon carries his about in a keyboard box on the back of his bike.
I think you would need some smooth air to slope soar, so houses and similar are out.
See our park flier web page for more details
Also, we thought the Flying Styro scale foam kits could be flown as slope soarers too, I have seen a few Corsairs in magzines but never the jets.....
