Getting Started R/C Planes
This volume on R/C aero modeling will ensure your success when you start out in one of the most fascinating and exciting hobbies of our time. Gerry Yarrish—an editor of Model Airplane News magazine who has a lifetime of experience in the hobby—writes specifically for the novice who wants to learn to build and fly model airplanes quickly and successfully.
You'll learn about the advantages of joining a modeling club, the types of model "trainer aircraft" from which you may choose, and how you can best meet the variety of challenges faced by all new modelers.

Once you've mastered your first R/C trainer, you'll be prepared to take on that next challenge, whether it is in scale competition, aerobatic flying or giant-scale aircraft or involves any of the many other special-interest areas in R/C aero modeling.
Gerry concludes with a description of the many avenues you can follow to get the most out of this exciting hobby and sport, but be warned: it's addictive! Your life is about to change forever!
