It's got a radio in it so that makes it radio controlled. DLG refers to the method for launching, not the presence or not of radio control.

There are folks building and flying a new breed of free flight glider that uses the side arm or discus launch style that ARE proper free flight designs thanks to the lack of radio in the model.
