Special Order


A guide to the aerodynamic principles of flying model planes

Model flying is a skillful and diverse hobby and a recognized international sport. The broad principles of flight as applied in full-size aviation are equally important to flying models, but are not always recognized or understood by aeromodelers. This book explains the aerodynamic principles of the "aerofoil" and the way that wings produce lift, which is essential to establishing flight. It includes 48 sheets of aerofoils, drawn for the direct use of aeromodelers, and a detailed method of plotting these on a home computer is given, using Excel or a similar platform. Written by a distinguished aerospace engineer with a passion for modeling, this comprehensive volume is perfect for enthusiastic aeromodelers looking to hone their craft.
