About A470 Soaring

This is the blog for a few guys who spend their time flying radio controlled gliders, or slope soarer's, from the many and varied slopes around SE Wales.

This usually begins at the northern end of Cardiff, driving north up the A470 up to the Heads of the Valley's and the southern fringe of the Brecon Beacons. But the A470 road continues its windy way all the way to N Wales.

There are many slopes available for most wind directions, the most famous being the area between Nant-y-Moel and Treorchi known as The Bwlch, which has some of the best slopes and flying in Europe with many F3F competitions being held there each year and visited by many fliers from Europe and around the world. At 1500 feet (450m) above sea level, there is usually more wind than not, and certainly more than at sea level.

If you require any further information, are new to slope soaring or are visiting the area, please contact Steve at steve.houghton59@gmail.com . I look forward to hearing from you.

A470 Soaring Merchandise

I've just had a car sticker made to help promote this blog, and I have to say it looks quite good.

It appears there has been a little interest in these and they are available in the following sizes and colours.

500mm x 225m - £6.00 (This is what I have on the above picture)
750mm x 338mm - £8.00
1000mm x 550mm - £10.00

Apple Green, Arctic Blue, Black, Cherry Red, Pink, Purple & White
Available for internal or external fitting
All prices include delivery to my address. I can forward them on to a UK mainland address for £2.00 or just wait until I see you for a personal delivery.
Payment to my PayPal account please - doobiedoobiedoo3@yahoo.co.uk

Also available are caps like the one below at £12.00 each

And just to let you know that I am not making any money on these, I just want to promote the A470 Soaring blog.

So if you are interested in placing an order, please email me at steve.houghton59@gmail.com or send me a Facebook PM if you are linked to the Slope Soaring in Wales Group, stipulating what you require.

I am not a business so I will probably only place orders with my supplier once I have a few items to order.
