Both glow and electric are great. Glow is great for the power to weight ratio. Electric is great because you can be flying in minutes instead of having all that setup time.

I flew glow for several years. Just got into electrics and have not taken out a glow model in weeks. I have a Kaos almost finished so I bet I will fly that a lot but if you have several packs per e-plane you can fly all day long...

Massive quantities of slime where having their effect.
But then I flew it....
I love electric BUT the ability to press a button and in 10 seconds be ready to fly again, no batt pak swaps, no charging. Just a fuel jug and a BIG rag.
No fussing with eCalc, no experimentation
just hit the throttle and go vertical, right out of sight.
Arggg, my will is fading....
