Although radio control equipment for model aircraft is readily available, some items can be cheaper to make yourself.
Beginning with an overview of the tools required and the construction techniques necessary to build the projects, this book goes on to give information on how to make a number of projects which include a mains battery charger, a field nicad battery charger, a flight switch and a flasher unit. The projects are all neatly constructed on printed circuit boards with full construction and testing details.
This book will not only save you money, it will also introduce you to another absorbing and stimulating aspect of the hobby.
