I like those Multirotors... maybe I will try my hands on those in the future.
For my wooden-glider-project I just picked up a Graupner Mx-12-Radio from ebay for 130 Euros. And as my knowledge of RC-Equipment is still from the 80ies, where I steered my Tamiya-Buggies around, I am completetly blown away by what you can do with this things. Crazy Menus, Expo, Mixing... 3 differnt Flight-Phases... and the best thing by far is Telemetry with voice output... INSANE!

And it looks nice, which is a bonus:




Meanwhile I am still tinkering with the glider... its coming together slowly, but nicely.



Another RC-glider-pilot pointed out, that I should put some airbrakes on it. Well... I dont know anything about those. So just by looking at other gliders I can get an idea... But there must be a way to calculatet the size or position of airbrakes? I dont want to just slap them on and see.
