Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? This is the latest edition - fully revised and updated - of the standard textbook on aerodynamic theory, as applied to model flight. Everything is explained in a concise and practical form for those enthusiasts who appreciate that a better understanding of model behaviour is the sure path to greater success and enjoyment, whether just for fun or in competition.

The revisions for this new edition reflect the significant developments in model aircraft during the last few years, and include brand new data: - The chapter on aerofoils has been rewritten to take account of the vast amount of testing carried out recently in the USA by the University of Illinois.

About the Author Martin Simons MA, MEd, BSc, now retired from his university teaching post has been flying models of all kinds, and full-scale sailplanes, for more than fifty years.

His more advanced book Model Aircraft Aerodynamics is the standard work on its subject in the English language. Model Flight is a much simplified introduction to the same complex field.

But even with that I'd still give this book five stars, considering what's out there. Buy it! This is a fantastic volume of design theory, for model airplanes. It is a compilation of theory from about 1 9 7 0 to the present.

It is very organized, explanatory, and analytic. I learned something new on almost every page. The greater value to me was that this author does not just preserve opinions, but analyzes design choices. The result is that he shows that much lore about building model airplanes is theoretically wrong.

I have read this volume about 5 times over already. It is the best reference book on design theory that I have encountered. Covers fundamentals of model aircraft design and engineering in a way that ferrets out the subtle and significant considerations for building a small scale aircraft. Martin Simons long experience with small scale aircraft shows the value and limits of advanced math applied to aircraft. Yet, the book use of math is practical and does not require advanced math.

This book is one of the most useful relevant books I have read in this area. It is a how-to cookbook to improve most aspects of model aircraft construction and can be used for ARF almost ready to Fly kit planes and really tweak them for high performance flying.

You will not regret getting this book! Someone liked my copy so much I had to re-order, the newer version is definitely an improvement. This book will teach you everything you need to know to get started designing model aircraft from an aerodynamic perspective. A working knowledge of math is required, and to get the most out of the contents you will need to have a good understanding of airplanes and hopefully some design ideas in mind. Coupling this book with some of the computer based tools available many of them free will put you well on your way to model aircraft design.

Am attempting an rc conversion of a Guillows spitfire kit. I purchased this book to determine if I should change scale dimensions of elevator, rudder and angle of attack. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
