2011 Frankfort Slope Update

2011 Frankfort Slope Update

Hi Guys,

First thing I want to mention is that the club had a slope work day a couple weeks back.  Ed, Jack, Tony and myself cleared about 100″ of slope access, its the widest and clearest its ever been!  All of the big trees are gone from either side and even some of the ones that were down a bit in front are gone. It was blowing over 25mph mostly South but it turned at the end of our work day so we got to do some flying too.  Jon from Scale Reproductions joined us, putting up over an hour flight with a ParkZone T-28 electric foam park flyer…motor off for the most part.  It was his first time on a slope and after that he’s clearly hooked!

Since then he’s  tried another smaller ParkZone Military plane and kept it up for over 2 hours! We are all watching the wind these days, remember SouthWest is perfect, South-Southwest works.   As always, don’t throw your plane off if the birds are flapping their wings!
Pretty sure Ed got some photos, I’ll add them later.
