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.
This softbound, 5¼"x 7¾", 132 page
book is illustrated with photos, drawings, diagrams
and model plans. $12.95
