Building & Flying: Model Aircraft by Robert Schleicher, James R. Barr


Building & Flying: Model Aircraft

In this illustrated manual, two leading experts introduce beginners to basic aerodynamic principles. And the building techniques of master modelers. Various chapters describe true-to-life scale models; lighter-than-air paints and “skins”; proper fuel and mufflers; engines and propellers; electric power plants; control lines; simple stunts; radio installation; advanced flying techniques; thermal soaring; outdoor free flight; radio-control helicopters; tools and glues; decal markings; repair tips; and more.

Richly illustrated manual introduces beginners to basic aerodynamic principles and all aspects of model-building — from paint and tissue covering to the secrets of selecting the best engine, fuel, and radio-control rig for each plane.
