Model Aircraft

Very few hobbies that exist under the subject of modelling can be as satisfying as the building of radio control model aircraft. To be able to take full control of an aircraft which has the ability to perform exactly like the real aircraft, using your own radio control equipment. The first electronically guided model aircraft were at least a century ago in music hall theatres with hydrogen filled airships that would be flown around the audiences using a basic form of spark-emitted radio signal. Also during ww1 the first radio controlled target aircraft were used – although very unreliable and posed a greater danger to the operators than as targets for the guns.

In America great strides in production of practical remotely-piloted vehicles with Walt Good and his brothers series of model aircraft in the interwar period was achieved with positive control. Whilst in Europe the British came up with Queen Bee, a modified de Havilland Tiger Moth, however the radio system on these were still very basic and not reliable – if the aircraft survived target practice it would be necessary to land not an easy task. In ww2 the Germans developed rc flying bombs in the form of gliders packed with explosives, which would be controlled from the air by a pilot in a manned bomber.

However great advances have been made by military with rc plane surveillance aircraft. With the development of transistors, electronic chips, rechargeable batteries and miniature actuators and receivers made possible through research and development by the military. One of the military aims being increased miniaturization, rc plane modellers will continue to benefit from there extensive and expensive  development work.

So a great thank you to all those involved in making our rc plane models possible.
