Now Available! The LEG EPP Building Clinic 4-Disc DVD Set
Posted by Greg Smith on Mar 22, 2007, 22:20
This 4-DVD set covers EVERYTHING about building a Leading Edge Gliders PSS slope plane. We take it from right out of the box through building, taping, covering, painting, weathering and even test fly it at the slope with plenty of great general rc slope soaring type info thrown in as well, so don't think this is just for PSS guys. While this video concentrates on the building of one of Jack's 60-inch PSS Warbirds, many of the tips and techniques are applicable to other EPP planes as well as model building in general. Archives

You may notice the slightly changed logo in the upper left hand corner. The addition of "archives" means that very soon this part of the site will no longer be updated and that the new version will be the place to go! There is a bunch of content to move, and there are probably links in articles that will lead back to this "archives" section, so it will stay for the foreseeable future. In addition Google ranks a lot of those pages very well and it would be a shame to throw away that work!

FYI the current version of has served well since about September 1st, 2002. 6 and 1/2 years is a commendable run in the web world! Previous versions of slopeflyer go back to 1998. Someday I may throw them back up just for posterity's sake.

New site progress
Posted by Greg Smith on Jan 31, 2009, 22:00
I've been getting some work done on the new version of this site what with the 7 to 15 degree temps all week! Well, it was 40 today but the wind was totally wrong. Oh, well, it can't last for ever. Anyway, while it is just a start, and I am still using a modified stock template for the look of the place, if you are the curious type, you can see the progress at: Webserver Move

It looks like the server move went pretty seamlessly. There may be a few files that are missing or referenced wrong but I had to make the move in preparation for the rolling out of the revamped version of this site. It may be a bit rocky for a bit but I think the added functionality of the new system will be a greater benefit than any glitches along the way. At any rate, I will leave all the old pages in place for the foreseeable future and hopefully you all will still find the information you need!

I'll post up again with the new site directory in a few days so, if you are the curious type, you can follow the pain from the beginning!

Formation DSing at Grants Pass

Mirko sent me this YouTube link to a great video of formation DSing at Grant's Pass. Reminds me of South Dakota formation sessions. Can't wait for spring!
