North Wales Slopers

Couple of us going up today. Tank tracks slope on the Orme. SW right into slope:)

 

Edit: turned out nice after a grey start. Good crowd with some nice models flown and a bit of combat action of course:)

Nothing more satisfying than watching someone walk back up with model in hand after a good hit:)

I presume you mean two models "accidently" hit each other when you were doing close formation flying  ;-)

Another great day on the Orme,  warms my cockles to see so many flying, topped off with a local school teacher bringing his pupils up flying.

Also maidened my Sigma II with the help of Geoff (skyline) an absolute gent who gave me a launch and sound advice that helped me leave with everything in one piece :)

 

My Sigma and Wild thing, second pic one of the pupils flying a zagi with the Carneddau in the background, gorse ablaze.

Four of us flying the Orme yesterday. Wind was split off the point, so lift not great.

Look out if you're flying the Orme, litter Nazi's are hiding in cars dishing out fines to smokers flicking ash. So if you smoke you'll have to go back to your car and use the ashtray. Pathetic I know, but I've seen them hand out a fine for chucking a chip to a seagull and even a dropped ice cream.

Great day for sloping and a good turnout. Also witnessed a miracle. Big scale ship was belting around and it looked like it went into a high speed stall, went down like it had been shot. Screamed down below the cliff out of sight and I thought he'd be lucky to find a part bigger than a 50p. 15 minutes later the rescuer came up with the plane in one piece and a grin wider than the wingspan. It was found beyond the road over the wall amongst the rocks and yet all it suffered was a dislocated wing tip. Never seen anything like it. Even foam combat wings come back from there in a bag.

I hope the pilot buys a lottery ticket on his way home.

Middle pic you can just make him out coming back over the wall...

Couple of us flying tomorrow, starting out from tank tracks, probably moving up to the bowl if it's too southerly.
