The HobbyKing™ Ridge Ryder Slope Wing was designed as a compact, simple, stable, and purpose built wing specifically for the dynamic world of slope soaring. The all molded EPO foam airframe is rugged and light weight, while a single piece carbon spar keeps the model very stiff and crisp in response.
One of the biggest battles over the ages has been adding additional ballast to your slope wing; most designs having little to no consideration for it. You are then left with the task of taping on weight, or using clay to add the extra weight needed. We’ve eliminated that need on the Ridge Ryder by pre-installing twin ballast tubes into the model. Included in the box are steel ballast, and foam spacers. This allows you to run some, or all weight, then the foam spacers take up the extra room allowing you to also fine-tune your center of gravity. Molded hand grips make launching easier. Speaking of easy, access your receiver of ballast through the magnetically secured hatch.
The HobbyKing™ Ridge Ryder is the perfect addition to your hangar. Its small size is perfect to pack with you on a hike or keep in the car. It handles light lift as well as heavier conditions while being stable and nimble at the same time!
