Quiet and Electric Flight International (Q&EFI)

As the only English-language magazine covering model gliding and electric flight, Q&EFI enjoys unchallenged access to a specialised niche within the R/C modelling world.

Internationally Known Columnists

Radio control gliding is a long-established R/C discipline with a loyal and devoted following, while electric flight is a relative newcomer that has enjoyed explosive growth over the last two decades. 

On The Gliding Side

Each month, Q&EFI features a ‘Scale Gliding’ column written by Chris Williams, one of the UK’s leading designer and builder of scale sailplanes. (Traplet Publications Ltd offers a wide range of Chris’s glider plans, many with wood packs for fast construction). The magazine also covers major flat field and slope soaring meets and competitions. 

On the Electric Side

Q&EFI’s monthly contributors cover all aspects of indoor and outdoor electric flying, and also write ‘how to’ articles and reviews of the latest in R/C radios. Through its ‘Marketplace’ pages, Q&EFI reviews the latest electric and glider models to hit the market, ranging from high performance composite machines to the increasing number of inexpensive RTF (Ready to Fly) electric planes and gliders. 

With articles spanning the simple to the technical, Q&EFI engages readers at all levels, from beginners to advanced modellers. 

A Worldwide Presence

Q&EFI is distributed across the UK through newsstands, hobby shops, and direct subscription (including a digital version). Supported by Traplet offices in the USA, Australia and South Africa, the magazine also enjoys a loyal international following of readers and subscribers in the United States, Canada, Australia and South Africa, as wells as Europe and South America.
