Developments in re-chargeable batteries and electronic systems have revolutionised electric powered radio control aircraft flying in recent years, particularly the lightweight end of the spectrum. Indoor flying with ultra-slow flying models of very light weight and now outdoor flight in restricted places is there to be enjoyed by all radio control modellers.
Since the advent of practical electric powered models, German enthusiasts have been in the forefront of their development and Hinrik Schulte has developed a high level of expertise in the design, building and flying of super-lightweights. In Parkflyer, he has laid out the pointers to success in an easy-to-read form for all modellers who wish to join the movement. The book offers information on building, flying and choosing suitable sites for lightweight outdoor flying models and is packed with hints and tips on the gear and the models of which the author has practical experience.
