Super light

There is a site on utube called,George's Super Light RC Planes,does any one know where there is more info on these planes and what they are using for control.
It looks like IR rudder and throttle,they have very good range for IR.
Thanks,
Robert.Australia.

they are indeed IR control, they have purpose built controllers with an array of IR LEDs around 20-30 usually, and the receivers are TINY and lightweight. he is likely flying that plane with a 10mah lipo cell and maybe even trimmed the cell around the seal.
