About this title

Quote from preface: - "Originally published in America by FLYING MODELS this valuable collection of data sheets for aeromodellers provides almost a lifetime's collection of information on all aspects of model flying. Where necessary, facts have been amended to meet the requirements of British enthusiasts but many typical American expressions have been retained where international usage has accepted them."

The Aeromodeller Pocket Data Book was my bible growing up. My father bought it for me when I started designing my own control line models. Unfortunately, when I moved out and my parents moved, I guess it was thrown out with a whole bunch of other superfluous materials. Thanks for bringing this back into my memory again - many fond memories of my father and I joining the Heswall Model Aircraft Club and flying (or rather trying to fly) small controlliners at the Gayton Playing fields. Ah - happy days.
