The flight slope , also called Soaring , or surf tunes , is a technique gliding without towing or winching or engine. When a valley breeze encounters a relief, it rises generating a dynamic updraft , which accumulates most of the time in the mountains with thermal updrafts . By staying in this very holding region, the gliding, a RC glider , glider , glider or gliding may remain in the air all the time will this dynamic. Continue Reading “Flight of slope”
The dynamic soaring (or Dynamic soaring) is a flight technique used to make the energy passing through repeatedly the boundary between two air masses having different speeds. Such areas of significant wind speed gradient are either near the ground or in an area protected by an obstacle such as at the back of a hill. Therefore this technique is used mainly by birds or radio-controlled gliders. However, glider pilots like Ingo Renner have been able to use it. The maximum speed reported by radio-controlled glider pilots is 500 miles per hour or about 800 km / h . Continue Reading “Gradient flight”

A radio-controlled glider is a scale model of glider , remote controlled from the ground.
A glider is an aerodyne devoid of engine . Glider practice is gliding . It is an aircraft equipped with lift planes with significant elongation conferring a very low glide angle. It is controlled by mastering the three axes of roll , pitch and yaw . Gliders can be put in the air in four different ways. The most common is towing by an aircraft called tug, throwing it by hand (for hand-launched gliders)), the third less common is the winch and finally more rarely, by its own means thanks to a motor is fixed or (most often) retractable. These are motorgliders . An action on the remote control makes it possible to turn off the engine once at altitude, or even to restart it. Continue Reading “Radio controlled glider”

The descent is the upward movement of an object. This term is used in meteorology to refer to the move to a higher altitude of a parcel of air either thermodynamically or mechanically. The formation of clouds occurs by the rise of the air. Gliders and birds use this effect to stay in flight. The ancestry of the air will be constant if the air is stable but will accelerate if the air is unstable. His reverse is subsidence . Continue Reading “Ancestry (meteorology)”
