Default FREE Monthly glider event in San Diego

The San Diego Electroglide has been going on for several years, and it still amazes me how few people know about it. The numbers are slowly rising, as the 'entry costs' are pretty darn low (a cheap foamy glider is all you need, but you can bring anything for open class)

If you are in the so-Cal area, check it out, come on down, and glide FOR FREE. There is no cost to participate, and its a super fun time with low stress competition.

Click the link for more info, and come on down and fly!

Default 30 point landing !

Check out my 6:40 minute, perfect 30 point landing~!

20 seconds of motor run time at launch, and no thermals to be found.

Check out June's action!

Thats me in the last frames during the end credits, my foamy EZGlider was down only 3 seconds before that exotic carbon ship came in. You can be competitive with a $80 foamy!

Ahh..... if you live in San Diego, and have a glider, you need to come play our game!

So wonderful yesterday, we all were getting crazy thermals and diving like a predator at 9 minutes to beat the 10 minute horn!

Yes we have 3 classes launching at the same time:
Factory Radian
Factory Easy Star
Open


Anything not in the two factory classes fits in open.

We are starting 2013 off with the San Diego Electroglide!

This saturday, the first one of the year. As always (at least for the last 14 years) the Electroglide is the 3rd Saturday of the month, first toss 09:30.


Digital starting, improved scoring, and the new "Lucky Dog" rule! Lots of fun for everyone and as usual, its FREE!
