A revolution in radio control aircraft modelling is here. The traditional route to flying a radio-controlled model was to purchase materials (or a kit of parts) and build one’s own model. This approach is rapidly disappearing as well-designed and affordable ‘Almost Ready To Fly’ models dominate the market. This is the latest and most exciting development in radio control model flying – off the shelf, out of the box and ready to fly!
This book is a response to the changing market. It aims to provide all the information the budding radio control flyer cannot get from within the packaging of the model he has, or is about to, purchase:
Contents: Model Types Available; ARTF & RTF; Moulded Foam; Moulded GRP & Injection; Electric; I.C. Powered; Gliders; Helicopters; Getting started; Trainers; Which Ones to Buy and Why; Joining a club – or going it alone; Radio Equipment; Electric Power; Learning to Fly; Preventative maintenance and repairs; More advanced ARTF models; Aeromodelling abbreviations and terms.
