There was a time when people were against putting an electric starter in an automobile. Starters were thought to be the cause of fires and were for "lazy" people who did not want to hand crank their cars. (I can see the TV ads now, "The new Lexus, easier to crank than every other car in its class". DUH

What I find most interesting, is the full scale sailplane guys don't seem to have an issue with "self launched" gliders. They are more sought after and more valuable.

Hobby shops can't keep Radians in stock
Every time I want to order a folding prop, its on backorder
Every time I want to order an outrunner motor, its on backorder
The electric glider and ALES forums have much more traffic than Thermal

The handwriting is on the wall folks.
