    What plane is this? IDENTIFY PLEASE!

    I was given this amazing 4 channel glider. It resembles the style of an E-flite Ascent, but it is smaller. I am hoping that one of you are able to tell me what type of plane it is. Let me know. Also if any of you have a manual or anything that would be great.

    Hey everyone, I have been wondering about this for a few days now: What do planes use their rudder for when they have ailerons? I understand that 3D planes need rudder for their awesome crazyness, but what do 'normal' planes use it for? A plane can turn using it's ailerons right? Or can only...
