Aeromodelling involves the design, construction, and flying of model aircraft. The models can range in size from small handheld models to large, radio-controlled planes. Aeromodelling requires a deep understanding of aerodynamics, engineering, and electronics. It involves designing the model, selecting the materials, building it, and finally, testing it in flight.
Aeromodelling can be divided into different categories, including free flight, control line, and radio control. Free flight models are powered by rubber bands or small engines and are designed to fly autonomously, with no control from the operator. Control line models are flown by the operator, who controls the model using a handle connected to wires. Radio control models are operated using a remote control and can be flown with great precision and control.
