E-flite Night Radian RC Glider Night Flight


This my first official night flight caught on camera with my E-flite Night Radian RC Glider.

It has Flite Test stickers on it and is a FT 2M Powered Sailplane.

magnificent extravaganza!
but, isnt it a contradiction? a plane intended for thermaling, flown at night? how many chances to catch a thermal at night? anyway, thank you for showing.

Thanks and you're right. I guess that's why it has power. It still glides great at night and even better on a nice warm day

no thermals at night


to confirm that there are no thermals at night, i found this:
" Since thermals depend on solar heating, thermal
soaring is restricted virtually to daylight hours with
considerable sunshine "

(page 173)
still, the idea seems fun. perhaps using these lights on other planes (powered) can even be used to perform aerobatics...
