Esc with hard brake and glide controller is a package, both are working together to help with successful glide. When you only have esc with brake you need to know when to throttle down to glide and when the wing flapping fast, its not easy to determine when to throttle down.
The glide controller will keep flapping the wing until it reach glide position, this gliding sequence will start when you throttle down, so you can easily glide almost anytime you want.
