This book is designed to take the new modeler through a series of practical, nontechnical steps from a simple first model to a contest or sport level airplane capable of stable, sustained flight. It contains techniques, hints and plans drawn from 40 years of building and designing. For the parent intending to help the young builder, emphasis is on the “How to” not the “Where From” with a program of kits, tools and methods illustrated in clear stages that lead to good flights from the first model. 81 pages.
