Radio-Controlled Model Aircraft by David Boddington

The building and flying of radio-controlled aircraft is one of the most enjoyable, involving and fun hobbies in the world of models. This new book by guru David Boddington looks at different types of radio-controlled aircraft, including traditional fixed wing machines powered by internal combustion engines, electric-powered planes, helicopters, indoor ultralights, jets and gliders. It explains how to build an aircraft, from a kit or from scratch, and looks at engine details and radio-control systems. Truly complete, this is the perfect book for anyone who has ever thought at trying their hand at this rewarding pastime.

Every weekend thousands of people across the world drive to open areas fly their radio-controlled aircraft. This book is designed to give the complete low-down on the hobby to enlighten those who haven’t yet taken the plunge, and to further the knowledge of flyers who want to improve, and fly more complicated and exciting airplanes. David Boddington has been flying and writing about radio-controlled aircraft for decades, and he passes on a great deal of accumulated experience in this highly illustrated book. Describing all the major types of aircraft and flying—from indoor electric-powered kites to quarter-full-size multi-engine turbojets—this book is the perfect introduction to this enjoyable hobby.
