Model Aeroplanes and Their Motors

 

George A. Cavanagh - 1916

Extremely Rare Title Compressed Air and Steam Powered Model Aeroplanes!


 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint
 

Originally published in 1916 this book has some of the most interesting ideas for motors for model aeroplanes I have ever seen.  Included are: compressed-air motors; gas motors and steam power along with the more typical power plants of early model aviation..

A history of model aviation with world record models and a dictionary of aeronautical terms.  Building the consituent parts of the model including a rubber band winder are also covered.

Some of the most interesting models are the flying boats which are covered in detail with diagrams of their construction.
