Hi,

I learned a little bit about RC hell flying long time ago and would like to try RC glider flying in Hong Kong. I have always been fascinated by the graceful shape and flight of gilders. And I like building planes using balsa wood. In fact, I have built a few 2M wood glider kits such as Gentle Lady even though I didn't fly with them yet. One day I am going to fly them in Hong Kong!

A friend of mine who lives in USA is coming to Hong Kong for visit next week. He is also a sailplane flyer in the States and he said he will bring me a wood kit which he didn't have time to build. It is a large glider with 11 foot wing span. I like building gliders but don't know if it is possible to fly such a big one in Hong Kong.

Any comment??

Thank you.

Thank you. Then I shall ask my friend to bring it over for me!!

Is it possible to fly it at Fei Ngo Shan or Clear Water Bay?

BTW, how can I join the HKRCSS?

Thanks.

Just for my curiosity, what is the biggest sailplane you can possibly fly practically in Hong Kong?

Thanks.

The biggest RC plane you can fly in HK is measured in weight.
According to my memory, it's 7 kg.
