Magazines for sailplane jocks?

There seems to be several general R/C magazines available. The Jet jocks have a couple as well. Are there any magazines that are strictly for sailplane and hotliner pilots?

...I think youre there, actually. RCGroups is that hot setup. If you are willing to read back issues, the old "Sailplane Modeler" was great. It morphed into "Sailplane and Electric Modeler" then "Quiet Flier" or something...anyway, you can order back issues and the early content of Sailpane Modeler was amazing.

Radio Control Soaring Digest is where it's at. There is no comparison.

Thanks. Its a shame there are few written english magazines. I remember Sailplane and Electric Modeler when it was mostly about sailplanes. I'm new to Scale Sailplanes having bought an 3M ASW 28. I've been flying mostly hotliners and EDF stuff and I just love the way sailplanes look.

QFI (Quite Flight International) is also a good mag. It went electric, too, but if you can get old copies... they are excellent reading for RC sailplane pilots.

RC Soaring Digest is about the only real name in town now. The internet ruined just about all of the print periodicals.
