Glider idea.

#1
Hi guys,

A suggestion from someone who is new to aero RC: have you done a review on any DLG gliders? I don't know anything about them other than they are to be thrown like a discus.

I don't know what are the best conditions in which to fly them, or where would be best.

Nor do I know the difference between slope soaring and thermal gliders. Where do I find slopes? Where do I find thermals?

Cheers!

Slopes are places like hillsides or cliffs where the wind flows upwards, creating lift for the airplane. They are caused by wind across a slope.

Thermals are columns where hot air rises upwards creating lift. They are caused by differences in temperature.
