Sailplanes, Gliders and Slope Soarers

While many RC modellers start out in the sport with a simple glider, learning to fly a glider or sailplane well, is a challenge no less demanding than any other class of RC model. Even the most hardened nitro modeller generally has a glider or two in the hanger and they make regular appearances at flying fields when the conditions are right for sustained flight. Whether searching for altitude in thermals or slope soaring, everybody seems to enjoy it.
