I was looking at a Plan for a 66in WS, 1/8 Scale, D.H. 88 Comet, that was called out as a "Powered" Outdoor Glider in a "PSS" Class. I am confused as this aircraft has no kind of Power at all. Not Rubber, Glow, Gas, Electric nothing? What does this mean? Your response will be appreciated.

Thank you.

I believe these are r/c gliders, meant for slope soaring, that are based on designs of real aircraft that were not sailplanes, but powered a/c.  The models do not have engines or motors - they are gliders.

Thank you that would explain the picture of a bunch of different aircraft laying on the ground that also had no wheels and were Jets, WWII, Korean Era, etc. That DH 88  Comet was done at exact Scale of 1/8. I was thinking of making it RC Powered by addition of Elec 400's. The Aircraft is very light made of limited balsa and foam.

Thank you again.
