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.

Carbon ZAlly

This is what has been keeping us "busy"
Carbon ZAlly is the product of "Thepasty"'s design and is a flying wing utilising a PW1211 profile section designed by Peter Wicks
We have created a mould for the fuz, and are experimenting with bagged wing lay-ups
Here is a video on Vimeo
