Pick Your Power — Gas, Glow, or Electric

Pick Your Power — Gas, Glow, or Electric

There’s an old saying that suggests, “If in doubt, add power!” And we have to admit, there are some Model Airplane News editors who do believe there’s just no substitute for horsepower. But when it comes to selecting which kind of power system to use, many RC modelers can use a little help. Whether you like Gas engine, Glow engines, or Electric power systems, this article will help you decide which is best for your specific needs.
