Are you living under a rock? Almost all gliders have ailerons. Only the really slow ones and beginner ones dont. And if you are not a purest you can get mega high speed vertical launches.

Most of the gliders ive seen are aileron-ed. i reckon ailerons are great. Only time i dont reccomend are if the person is full newby and isnt learning at a club

The world's fastest (hobbyist) RC planes are gliders. Is 500mph boring?

The Phoenix demo did OK at the low quality setting, and was still choppy with the Helis.

Should I still look into getting it? I'm thinking a better graphics card and maybe 4GB of Ram...

I don't have a laptop. It's a Dell tower. I'm using the built-in card which isn't that great. I may even look into a faster dual core processor.

$200 is too much for RF, $120 is a stretch. I'm not financially inclined.

All you have to do is open the case, plug in the card, maybe install a driver and you are good to go.
