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.

Hi Brian - Yep. Nice clip filmed by Frank of The Netherlands. Good to see the clip again myself, thanks. Wondering how' Khaled is doing, hope he's fine. The good old days were fun and glad to see you stay in this dying forum. I also hope SK can get his feet back together. Cheers

Agree, LIG. Was thinking the same thing. Print a beautiful wing feather pattern and then slap that ugly Carbon advert thing on it! Best, Aero
