|R/C Soaring: Keeping a model airplane aloft with no engine or visible support other than the pilot's checkbook.|
|Seriously, R/C Soaring is one of the most inexpensive forms of R/C flying, and has many advantages over powered flight. First, its easier to learn. Since beginner sailplanes are slow and docile, you can learn to solo in only a few sessions. Second, it is less expensive. You can start flying for less than $200 with your own plane and radio. Third, you can fly almost anywhere from your local playground to small hills. Finally, R/C soaring is to flying what sailing is to boats. Its a challenge between you and the elements, not just a matter of who has the bigger engine.|
