    Patrick, I can only agree about the damp air here after the cold but dry air near Carcassonne!

    But it's supposed to be dry tomorrow for a change and I might even get to chucking my model gliders off a nearby hill for an hour or so???

    They are well over 7 years old and not yet obsolete, bent a bit but still flying! Some folks have asked me why I never actually learned to fly full size? My reason has always been that they haven't seen just how I land?

    Hey John....

    Landing is easy. Just turn off the engine and let gravity take over!

    That's basically what a successful airplane landing is all about — just keep it controlled as you get it to stop flying.

    My radio controlled GLIDERS are always radio and sometimes controlled

    Engines!! They are noisy smelly things! Almost all of mine, including the Fougar Magister in my avitar, are gliders. uch better for my Sunday morning head!

    My son's used long cords and a huge length of surgical rubber elastic tubing that sure launched their remote gliders to a decent altitude. Definitely no gas engines required.

    But now, several years later, there are lots of quiet electric battery powered motors that some use for launching.

    This is one of the better shots of me flying a mate's model

    Not that I'm frightened of heights you understand?

    It may well be a good idea to start a new thread if we wish to carry on with this theme?? I could talk model flying for ages, like 3 or 4 seconds!!
