Pink Book Rule #62

Radio Controlled Glider Competition comprises a single event open to any single-staged model rocket, one portion of which is radio controlled during flight, and returns to the ground in stable, gliding flight supported by aerodynamic lifting surfaces which sustain it against gravity. The entry may separate into multiple pieces, only the gliding portion is scored.

The purpose of this competition is to repeatedly achieve specified flight times, and land as close as possible to a designated spot consistently over a series of three flights..[1]
