5.0 étoiles sur 5THE R/C book to read!6 juillet 2000
Par Coyote - Publié sur Amazon.com
Excellent material. I was into R/C several years ago and was looking for a refresher. This book has it all from basic flying skills (takeoffs and landings) to intermediate skills (dreaded cross winds takeoffs and landings). It also mentions the differences in flying trike gear or tail gear and how to do both effectively and prevent crashes. Multi engines, pylon racing, acrobatics, scale, engine performance are all covered. Gliders and Ducted fan are also covered. Most complete book R/C book I have come accross. Highly recommended for those thinking about R/C, new R/C pilots and those requiring a refresher.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Not bad, but not 5 stars either13 février 2003
Par Heath Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I don't usually write reviews, but I'm gonna have to go against the crowd on this one. I bought this book based on the 5 star reviews and was a little disappointed. Its not a bad book, but most of it is a collection of articles about different types of flying, like combat, sail planes, scales, etc. There's a little info on basic flying and some very limited info on some basic aerobatics, and that's it. If you're getting started in R/C and looking for some good basic flight instruction, plus some other useful tips, I MUCH preferred "Getting Started in Radio Control Airplanes" by Yarrish. It has as much flight instruction as this one, plus some useful info on model building, covering, etc.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Just Fair--and there's a much better book24 octobre 2005
Par William Corsair - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a series of articles from Model Airplane News and, as such, is somewhat disjointed at best. I agree with the previous reviewer that "Getting Started with Radio Control Airplanes" is a better book for the novice. However, I've recently discovered another (and much newer) book that's even better. It's called "Mastering Radio Controlled Flight" by Scott Stoops.
Stoops is a full-scale commercial pilot, a sport/stunt pilot, and a radio control pilot. His explanations are clear, in just the right sequence, and well illustrated throughout. There's a lot of "how to" for the basic, intermediate, and advanced radio control pilot. He even goes into some of the newer developments in electric-powered flight, much of which has changed radically in just the past 18 months with the introduction of lithium-polymer batteries.
I'm at the advanced trainer stage, just getting comfortable with aerobatics, and found this book invaluable.
I'm not sure why Amazon doesn't carry it. It's available through the publisher (Kiona Publishing).

5.0 étoiles sur 5First Book23 juin 2000

Well this is the first book that I have accually read on R/C. Most all of the information that I have been getting has been off the internet. I think this book is great it covers everything alot better than the info on the internet. It's great for newbies like me, I have learned so much and I have only read the book once! I'm planning on reading it again soon, I never even knew that U could make your R/C planes into bombers "the idea never crossed my mind" but you can and it's not that hard. It is very detailed and also has pictures which makes everything alot easyier and more understandable. I think that if you are just getting into R/C that this is the book for you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Scott Stoops' Book is Much Better18 novembre 2005
Par Caleb Hummell - Publié sur Amazon.com
The web address for the superb book, "The Pilot's Guide to Mastering Radio Controlled Flight" is at [...]. The more I re-read it, the better I like it. Scott Stoops does a fabulous job of educating the r/c pilot about how to fly WELL, not just OKAY.
