This a video that was put together by a 16year old sloper recruit at our last slope fest.
out of all the videos posted I think he captured the feel of the event from a teenagers perspective that shows that age is meaningless in RC flying.

If you have a free week in September come on down under for a visit.

Nice! That sure is a sweet looking bird. Lovely flight!

Oh! I DO have ya beat in size. 109" L X 118" S but mine has not been sloped.....yet! Does that have a slope or scale airfoil? Mine is scale, highly undercambered. Flight will be interesting.

And yes, I'd love to come down there some day!

Maidened the Raider yesterday morning. Need to play with CG a bit, plus set a bit more "up reflex" (both flights I had the elevons almost buried up) - but she flew. Would have played longer, but the rain put a stop to my fun
