Slope Soaring / Re: BPLR Madslide

Hi Ralph,
Yes was really nice to catch up with old friends. Mass build would certainly be cool. Hopefully it’s not too challenging to cut some wings. Have always wanted one of these (Nostalgia 😊) and I like the color scheme. My vinyl cutter will be put to good use.

Looking forward to next month,

Regards
Conor.

Conor,
   what about this for a mass build? I was talking to Lazarus yesterday and he seems to be on the mend.

Good to see you at the weekend

I built one over 10 years ago. Nice flying model, but I binned it in a gale on Slieve Gullion, Northern Ireland. It was the guys I was flying with or the model, as it had got behind me and was coming forward at a fair lick, so full down elevator provided the solution!!

Slope Soaring / BPLR Madslide
« Last post by Scorpio on March 19, 2019, 23:34:45 PM »
Hi JP,
Attached are the pdf plans for the BPLR Madslide we were chatting about over the weekend. There are two versions, 2.3m and 1.5m.

Link to model and details here: http://www.jivaro-models.org/madslide/page_madslide.htm

It's an oldish design (late nineties/early noughties) but a classic. Google translate does a nice job for non-french speakers  :)

All the best,
Conor.

Thanks Bill, and we did!
But it was bloody cold! Not sure how the SFRC guys managed to stay that long at the slope flying! Alcohol, drug, craziness? We’ll never know! :)

Anyway, 15 pilots showed up, for what was a cold but gusty day!

Here are a couple of photos, more tomorrow!
