Default RE: Micro sloping

Or You canfind a line of trees.
At the RC club we have a line of trees just around 80 feet from the runway, (just over the tailplane of the Fox on the picture.)
When the wind is North or S and around 10 to 18knots thentreeline DS is possible here.
We tow or bungee the glider to heigh.

It takes a real good glider (and pilot) to do it , but its real cool.
