Model Planes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Model Planes free pdf Model flying is a challenging and exciting hobby as well as a recognized international sport. The broad principles of flight as applied in full-size aviation are just as important to flying models, but these principles are not always recognized or understood fully by aeromodellers. Written specifically with aeromodellers in mind, Model Planes: Aerofoils and Wings is a practical guide to the aerodynamic principles of the 'aerofoil' and the way that wings produce lift, which is vital to establishing flight. Included are over forty ready-to-use aerofoil sections in a range of typical sizes, together with a detailed method of plotting these sections on a home computer, using Excel or a similar software. A comprehensive glossary provides clear explanations of the modelling terminology used, and diagrams illustrate key principles and themes. Written by a distinguished aerospace engineer with a passion for modelling, this comprehensive volume is perfect for the enthusiastic aeromodeller, whether starting out or looking to hone their craft.
