Slopng in Westover

What planes have you tried that "works" there, and in what wind condition?

Today 20km/h NNW, wind is gusty and blow right into the slope. My BAT flew okay but not fast. No fun.

Then I tried my DLG, that was fun floating on the gusty lift band for 26 minutes.


p.s. I am not a SOGGI memeber but I think they may allow a COGG member to fly as guest Thanks SOGGI.

I have had some success with a 2m Gentle Laddie type glider. I tried my Ninja there is crazy winds and straight into hill with marginal success. I find the trees are quite large now and disrupt a lot of the possible good air.

Do you know of other sloping sights?
