Before flying an RC plane, it is wise to practice on an remote control flight simulator. There are many versions present on the market and, much like other products, some of them are better than the others. Read on to understand the things you should consider before buying.
Motors can be fun, but it can be thrilling to soar without one. Soaring becomes a “game,” testing your skill in a constantly changing aerial environment. This experience is quite different from using gas or battery power.
Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here). Later, he experimented by flying a model with multiple adjustable surfaces, allowing him to understand how every change affected the model’s flight. This model is a ½ scale replica of his original 1804 model. Cayley used the data from these experiments to publish his On Aerial Navigation in 1809.
