At the time of writing (Oct 00) there is a proposal for a newsgroup specific to electric models. The current suggestion for a name is rec.models.rc.air.electric. Keep looking out for this new group.
Sailplane Modeler is expanding its coverage to include electric powered planes of all sorts. The new name will be Sailplane and Electric Modeler. The following information came from Wil Byers.
It will cover all aspects of electric including electric sailplanes. Additionally, we will retain our sailplane writers, but the magazine is definately growing in the direction of electrics. So, please spread the word.
