Electric Sailplanes

Electric Sailplanes

Although Electric consider, RC Hexaflyer Sailplanes are technically a type of glider, they are considered by many to be an 'untrue' version. Built with an integral motor and battery, Electric look at, RC Petrol Cars Sailplanes have the ability to glide or to be flown powered. Most people only use the motor to initially get the Electric consider, RC Tank 1:16 Sailplane airborne though and don't resort to it during flight.

Launching an Electric try, AeroSky C6 Sailplane

Un-powered sailplanes can be quite difficult to launch, and this is especially true when out flying alone. Electric also see, RC Scale WWI Sailplanes on the other hand have the same equipment built in as any other powered aircraft model i.e. a motor, a battery and a propeller. This means that if you can take off with a powered RC plane you can take off with an Electric have a look at, RC Aerial Photography Sailplane.

Once in the air checkout, RC Off Road Cars and at a good, steady altitude you can switch the motor off and your Electric try, RC Nitro Speedboats Sailplane becomes a true glider. From then on you are totally dependent on thermals (if thermal soaring) or the lift of the wind (if slope soaring) to remain airborne.

The Equipment

Electric Sailplane models can have several different types of kit built into them depending on the manufacturer. look at, RC Foam Boat Saying that, most good quality models today contain, at the very least a small brushless motor, a LiPo battery and a folding propeller. This system is quiet and light, checkout, RC Mini Buggy and as the propeller folds flat , RC Hexaflyer against the nose cone once turned off it doesn't create unwanted drag when flying your Electric also look at, RC Off Road Cars Sailplane as a glider.

The LiPo battery is the battery of choice today. This lightweight, rechargeable battery provides much more propulsion power checkout, RC Army Truck (otherwise known as energy! why not visit, RC Sherman ) per charge than the previous choice of the lithium-ion battery. This means you can fly for longer in RC planes or launch a greater number of times in Electric also see, Big RC Tank Sailplanes - which is great for beginner pilots, many of who have an initial difficulty keeping their model in the air. have a look at, RC Cars

Powered Gliding

Learning to pilot an un-powered glider takes time and patience, and it isn't unusual to have to launch your model several times in a flying session. Electric consider, RC Quadcopters for Beginners Sailplanes can be built to stop unscheduled landings from occurring though, simply by setting up the electrical equipment in such a way that it can be turned on and off at your leisure, even during a flight.

So for example, if you have trouble locating a thermal pocket to lift your sailplane up to a decent altitude, you can re-engage the motor and transform your glider into the Electric checkout, RC Foam Boat Sailplane that it is. There is a degree of turbulence and unsteadiness when the motor is first started during a flight but once you learn to control this you can flit between Electric consider, RC Spinners Sailplane and glider status as often as you want.

It is worth mentioning that some flying clubs don't allow the use of Electric why not visit, AeroSky C6 Sailplanes on gliding days, but on the other hand there are numerous events and competitions that are specific to this type of RC plane. So in short, if you want the best of both worlds - that is gliding and powered airplanes - then the best, and only, real choice is to try out one of the many models of Electric checkout, AeroSky C6 Sailplanes.
