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.

We're all Back!!!

Some of us never left!.... and had some wonderful flying. According to Daron, he needed a break as it was blowing everyday!
For myself it is great to be back!
Yesterday, as I watched the wind spike and climb to 40knots SW, I kept repeating to myself, YOU JUST GOTTA LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!
But there is a sting to the tail......
The Maitlands vacuum bubble!
And yesterday was no exception. The wind strength was only 16km/h and dropping! Can you *%$#& believe it!!!!






Alain casting his technical eye over the Toko






Tony battled a bit in the light wind with his Little Devil

The Toko is moving fast up the favoured plane list!





Mark with his Correx MiG that he specially built for Hermanus




Sean just can't seem to fly anything the right way round!





And that's is why I love this so......
On top of a mountain with the wind in your face and a graceful sailplane in your hand. All at one with the elements!
