Canterbury Sailplanes has been making radio controlled models since 1991. Our models are made from EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) which is a very resilient material, perfect for building model aeroplanes. The normal bumps and thumps the model gets while you learn to fly won't damage it.
Most of Canterbury Sailplanes gliders are designed for flying off a slope, which is an ideal way for beginners to get started in this fantastic sport. Slope soaring provides the best value for money of any form of radio controlled model aircraft flying today. All you need is your model and radio gear and a suitable slope to fly off! No winches, no extra batteries and chargers, no messy fuel, engines or expensive starter gear. When the wind hits the slope it's pushed upwards, that rising air provides lift for gliders to soar on for as long as your batteries can last (hours!). Slope soaring is clean, it's free and it's heaps of fun!!!
Canterbury Sailplanes also offers radio gear, lessons and free advice.
