My name is Stéphane Combet, I live in Toulouse, France, and I am found of RC (Remote Controlled) glider aerobatics.
During 2016-2017 I used this website for a few kit business but I stopped this.
Check out some of my videos above, and visit the websites below!
RC glider aerobatics, what's that?
I consider RC gliding as an art, combining technology, knowledge of the natural environment, and choreography.
The RC glider is an outdoor activity, in which a glider is operated by means of a remote control. The pilot can steer right, left, up, down, etc. but without an engine, it must use find lift (ascending currents) to keep altitude and speed. Otherwise it goes down little by little.
Aerobatics involves performing geometric figures by the trajectory and position of the glider.
Depending on the complexity sought, it can be accessible to all remote-controlled gliders, or require specific aerodynamics and systems.
My thanks go to François Cahour, with whom we regularly exchange to design, build, pilot, in this activity that we consider artistic without forgetting that it is a game!
Many thanks also toSteve Lange, a great slopeaerobatic enthusiast, who gathers information and shares it generously on the web, on his website slopeaerobatics.com and the Facebook group VTPR and Slope Aerobatics.
Huge thanks to Franck Aguerre for the PredimRC tool that I use to size and adjust my models. Franck did a amazing job of reflection and compilation, which he puts at the service of the model aircraft community on this website: rcaerolab.
Enjoy slope aerobatics!
