Structural Dimensioning

Structural Dimensioning
of Radioguided Aeromodels

by Dr. Ing. Ferdinando Galè

Anyone building RC aircraft needs to read this book! Beginning with a description of balsa's characteristics, Dr. Ing. Galè describes the materials and methods of building model aircraft structures which will withstand the stress of intense flight. Such structures need not be heavy or difficult to build. From sticks to sheets to foam and fiberglass, Dr. Ing. Galè explains it all. Some simple math skills are required, but numerous examples assist with understanding.
