    RC gliders (aka sailplanes) Relaxing or exhilarating - your choice! RC gliders, also known as sailplanes, can offer the beginner a very gentle introduction to the radio control flying hobby, but can also offer the experienced rc pilot some truly exhilarating aerobatic and racing opportunities - such is the diversity of radio control gliding. - Explore xlberzerkviking's board "Planes n Gliders", followed by people on Pinterest.

Follow the development of designs. A glider is a fixed-wing aircraft that is supported in flight by the dynamic reaction of the air against its lifting surfaces, and whose free flight does not depend on an engine.

Most gliders do not have an engine, although motor-gliders have small engines for extending their flight when necessary by sustaining the altitude (normally a sailplane is on a continuously descending slope) with some.

The glider is slipping or skidding through the air when it is not pointing directly in the direction it is flying, relative to the air mass around it.

A string on the windshield indicates to a glider pilot whether or not the glider is flying straight (the string is straight) or if it is yawing (the string is to the right or left).

A modern sailplane is an amazing machine, capable of flying over 45 feet forward for every foot it descends. Newer gliders are made of fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar, while older models can be made of aluminum or even wood and fabric. Some gliders have flaps, which can both decrease the landing speed, and increase performance at high speeds.

Unlike many early flying machines, Clement Ader's Éole did not attempt to fly by flapping its wings, but was to rely on the lift generated by its wings (mechanical copies of bat wings). Its steam engine was an unusually light weight design and drove a propeller at the front of the aircraft.
