R/C Pilots Handbook
The R/C Pilot's Handbook is a comprehensive guide to flying radio control model airplanes covering basic to advanced flying techniques. Knowledge from over two dozen leading R/C pilots has been compiled in a unique volume that spans the diverse arenas of R/C Piloting. There is something here for pilots of every skill level. Beginners will learn how to choose a plane, take off, land, use the rudder, avoid stalling, and train themselves to instinctively make the proper control inputs. Intermediate fliers can sharpen their skills by learning how to slip an airplane or venture into twin-engine flying. For the advanced pilot, this book offers tips on scale flying, racing, aerobatics, and hot-dogging. A section is also devoted to special interests such as combat and fun-flying. Over 190 pages, fully illustrated with lots of photos and diagrams.
