DescriptionIntroducing Radio Control Model Aircraft
A straightforward introduction to all aspects of radio controlled model aircraft, this book contains essential information on building, finishing, radio control equipment installation and model engines plus oslid guidelines on the operations of the model and its accessories. It includes advice on building models, equipment installation, varieties of engine and operational techniques.
A radio-controlled (model) aircraft (often called RC aircraft or RC plane) is a small flying machine that is controlled remotely by an operator on the ground using a hand-held radio transmitter. The transmitter communicates with a receiver within the craft that sends signals to servomechanisms (servos) which move the control surfaces based on the position of joysticks on the transmitter. The control surfaces, in turn, affect the orientation of the plane.
