Hi there my name is Grant MacDonald and I have decided to moderate this forum. First an Introduction:
I have been flying R/C since 98 and electric since last year.
I also fly full-scale gliders and powered with the Royal Canadian Air Cadet movement.

So in short I can answer most of the questions about the science of flight and batteries/motors you may have.

Now down to business to better serve you I have attached a poll which asks which type of gliding you do most: Slope, Thermal, Handlaunch, Electric, or Dynamic. What I am trying to do with this is see the knowledge base of this forum.
Lets see some action out there,
Grant

Cobble hill is on the south half of beautiful Vancouver Island. We're close to both Victoria and Duncan.
Cheers,
Grant

Is this an NDP poll?
