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.
The majority of beginner RC gliders are 2 or 3 channel, with control to either rudder and elevator or rudder, aileron and elevator. This latter setup is my preferred choice as it obviously makes the glider far more maneuverable with better flight characteristics.
The more advanced RC gliders and larger sailplanes can have more channels still, with additional controls for flaps or spoilers, air brakes and even tow line release hooks in the nose and retractable nose wheel.
