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.

Behind the scenes

The Jart story is not over yet!

Until we have mastered the art off bagging the wings and completing the" glass ship"process, we would not have for filled the goal!

The Mylars have been sprayed and cut

The glass cloth layers cut and ready for wetting out.

The Wetting out of the glass cloth. We ran into some problems as the epoxy was flashing off due to the high temperature!

In the vacuum bag and weighted down......
Time will tell if this was only another experiment!!
