Rc Thermal Gliders
RC thermal gliders are a special form of radio controlled planes that ride on hot air currents. These RC thermal gliders are simple in design, built for beginners as well as enthusiasts and ideal for people of all ages. Spending some quality time outdoors, in the company of family or friends, with RC thermal gliders, is probably one of the best ways to get through the day!
RC thermal gliders are designed to fly without power. Their main emphasis has always been on harnessing the power of rising hot air, and gliding on them till air permits. The science behind RC thermal gliders, and their flight capabilities are quite simple - fly into rising air currents, grab those currents, rise with them, and fly off!
All you need to get into the RC thermal gliders' hobby is, first and foremost, an RC thermal glider! Then you need a nice slope with some soft, preferably grassy, surroundings so as to ease the landing pressure on your RC model.
All you need to do is stand on the slope, facing the wind, and launch your plane (by hand) into the wind. Your RC thermal glider will automatically start gliding away on the wind currents that are pushing it up. That's when you start levelling it out and flying it parallel to the cliff-face.
RC thermal gliders are un-powered, meaning they are ideal for learning the basics of flying RC planes. However, there isn't much that needs to be done in terms of flying the plane. The plane stays up due to air and all you need to do is move it around till the air currents let it down gently.
RC thermal gliders are not just for beginners, a lot of experienced flyers love the skill required to run these fantastic airplanes. There are many enthusiasts who dedicate their lives to RC thermal gliders, gladly helping others along the way.
If you are looking for RC thermal gliders, try the local hobby store or the Internet. The Internet gives you all the options you might want in the world of RC thermal gliders but when buying a model, it is best to do it in a store. This will help you get a first-hand idea of how these RC thermal gliders look and feel.
Once you have your RC thermal glider, all you need to do is find someone who can help you learn the ropes, head out to the nearest hill and give this wonderful hobby a go. You might see the reason why people get hooked on to the world or RC thermal gliders.
