For a couple years here in America, a handful of aerobatic glider builder/flyers have tossed around the idea of performing VTPR style aerobatics over the plain. VTPR in itself on the slope can be very dangerous to the model, but is accentuated even more over land in still air. There has been some resistance from modelers regarding safety and whether a slope glider should even fly in the park. There has also been much appreciation and positive excitement over the style. One platform is on RCG at this link.
A BIG thanks goes to a fantastic designer/pilot by the name of Remi Le Besque in France, we can now see the style come to life. And by this video just released today, we can see the flying style is totally viable possibly attracting new enthusiasts and glider designs we at VTPR Aerobatics fully support.
The MadExa 2.0 glider is derived from an Excalibur 2.5m with "mad controls" and equipped with a Turnegy SK3, 3451-1000kv motor and 13 x 6.5 prop.1800 to 2400mah 3S batteries, 70A controller supply the electrons.
Enjoy the flight as we see this style of glider aerobatics become another option and growth channel in the sport.
