Written with both the beginner and experienced modeller in mind, this book is a complete and comprehensive guide to radio controlled model aircrafts. Every aspect is covered, from how to choose the right model, engine and R/C, and how to build a basic trainer model with useful information on materials and construction. A significant part of the book deals with learning to fly, and covers essential, advanced and aerobatic maneuvers. Separate chapters examine specialist areas such as electric flight, gliders, autogyros, hellicopters, pylon racing, ducted fans and turbojets. This lavishly illustrated book examines every aspect of radio control modelling.
