Default RE: Remind me why do we fly glow planes, compare to electric planes,

I've found that bigger planes are better with gas/glow. Smaller planes are better with electric. I've got a couple of electrics but I'm not seriously into them. I've never had much luck with them to tell the truth. Batteries are very costly, then if you start going to the realm of brushless, the motors cost more and require expensive speed controls.

I wonder, why doesn't anybody run diesel anymore? It's powerful, clean, the fuel is relatively cheap. No special equipment required. In the six years I've been in this hobby, I haven't come across anybody running one.
