A revolution in radio control aircraft modelling is here. The traditional route to flying an R/C 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 book is a response to the changing market, it aims to provide all the information the budding R/C flyer cannot get from within the packaging of the model he has, or is about to, purchase: model types available; ARTF and RTF, moulded foam, moulded GRP and injection; electric, I.C. powered, gliders and 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; and aeromodelling abbreviations and terms.
It covers the latest and most exciting development in radio control model flying - off the shelf, out of the box and ready to fly! It provides all the essential information that the instructions in the box don't offer!
