Elegant Elegant
By Allan Wright
The Elegant 700 is very high quality and well-built glider kit that continues to impress me each time I fly it. It makes a good plane for those considering taking the next step up in performance from 2-meter class of sailplanes.

Candy HLG Candy HLG
By Rob Schaffer
Overall, the Candy hand-launch glider combines concise, clear instructions with great quality construction, providing the sport flyer with a very fun and competitive aircraft. The low total weight, wide wing cord, Selig airfoil, and V-tail control make this plane a very nice floater for a wide range of conditions.

The Southeast Electric Flight Festival (SEFF) had its inaugural fly-in earlier this year just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Despite a day or so of less than perfect weather, the fly-in went very well, and there was a very good turnout of modelers, sponsors, and spectators.

A Tale of two racecourses: Chester and York Electric Fly-ins - Summer 2002 A Tale of two racecourses: Chester and York Electric Fly-ins - Summer 2002
By leccyflyer
The Chester All Electric Fly-in usually takes place at the end of June or beginning of July at the picturesque Roodee racecourse, right in the centre of this historic town, located in a bend in the River Dee. The theme of the day is low-key fun flying, though a number of competitions are run, including scale, sports-aerobatic, vintage, and the All-Up-Last-Down event.
