Slope Rebels was set up by a select group of members who are passionate about radio control soaring. Sloping makes up the largest part of our flying, along with flat field and electric flight and we are based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. All the places we fly are public, and we have no field to rent and therefore there is no fee for joining the Slope Rebels. Membership is based on mutual respect and a shared passion for flying.
We encourage fliers with similar views to share their experiences and love of anything that flies.

Red Bull Jart: Slipper West Face, 80km/h wind

In our rush to complete all our planes for the Hermanus slope event in November, we were desperate to complete the Jart trials.
Sean did extremely well to control the unweighted Jart with an all up weight of 1200g in the given conditions.
This post has previously been added to the SA Jart Blog, but as this will always remain in my memory, I thought it justifies being posted!
Well done Sean!

High wind conditions of 80km/h

Typical Jart jet like profile

Some describe the Jart as a lethal weapon.... It just depends in who's hands it is!
