See Ian Pullar's web site Ian Pullar from Melbourne has built a web site to explain the intricacies of radio controlled flight. It is packed with useful information. He has included articles and pictures on 'Introduction to Electrics', 'Seven Cell Gliders', 'Park Fliers & Indoor', '400 Electric Flying' and 'Large Electric Scale & Aerobatic'.

'Electric Flight UK' now has closed down - sorry to see it go, but electric flying is still popular in England.

'Quiet & Electric Flight International' Also has ceased production, but you might be able to borrow back copies from friends - I wrote a monthly column in this magazine for over 10 years!

The AEFA E-magazine, "Electric & Gliding Flight Australia" started up at the beginning of 2016 to fill the gap left by the closing down of other electric flight publications - join the AEFA to obtainn this free publication which is sent to you by e-mail.

Electric gliders are very popular
