You'll find all kinds of planes enjoying the awesome lift Mission Peak slope has to offer. You'll find floaters, Thermal Duration, scale and even F3B ships making fast passes across the slope face. For beginners, there is no better way to learn the basics of RC soaring than at a slope site with long duration flights.

No matter what kind of flying you enjoy, or experience level, your really missing out on some exciting soaring if you don't give the Mission site a try.
