E-flite because a pure sailplane goes along well with the quiet flying experiece, and the only power onboard is electric. Hangar 9 is about power system choice including both electric and IC. Since this has no motor it doesn't really fit with Hangar 9. Contrary to the way some think, we want to get away from thinking that E-flite = small and Hangar 9 = big. EFL has always been "Advancing Electric Flight" in every aspect of advancement.
Makes sense to me.

I always give management a little bit of the credit because you were smart enough to let the talent do something cool...
