Lawrencetown Slope Soaring

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Last Modified Sept 3, 2008, new vids and pics.


Movies:

Slope soaring the Star Trek Starship Enterprise Glider:

This is my video of my homemade scratch-built model that I designed, but I am mystified as to how so many people on the web are mistaking it for the mattel powered model coming out in 2009. I haven't heard of any other R/C Enterprise gliders.

embedded enterprise video from youtube:

Unplanned and caught on camera! Note that it was hindered by the high start stretched tight in the right hand, and generally by wearing mittens. Porters Lake Fun Fly, 2003:
