About this title

Comprehensive reference manual from the people behind Flying Models magazine.
Quote: "55 features cover the field, from the most elementary glider and its structural details, to the beginnings of radio control. As many subjects as possible have been covered and profusely illustrated. No one book can cover everything, but we do feel that most of the major trouble spots in each new builder's career are dealt with in detail."
