      Centre of gravity

      Centre of gravity - this is achieved by balancing the forces on the aircraft and the alignment of those forces.  So the shape is balanced and the weight needs to be balanced too. Think of a see-saw

      Lift thrust drag weight

      Lift thrust drag weight - 4 main forces in balance

      Flaps

      Flaps are on the edge closer to the aircraft. They work together on take off and landing. They usually contain fuel tanks in full size aircraft but not models. 

      Fuselage

      Fuselage - for the body of the aeroplane. Wings, tail, engine and undercarriage attached. Cockpit, controls, instruments and cabin form part of it. 

      Ailerons

      Ailerons are the outer edge of the wings. they move in opposite directions to allow the pilot to roll the aircraft

      The Model Aviation Family

      Models cover every flying discipline that you see in full size aircraft. These icons are mark the types of aircraft flow at different clubs and by pilots.  

      Turbine

      Turbine aircraft are the fastest of all models. They derive their power from a model turbine motor, normally operating Jet A1/Kerosene as a fuel.

      Helicopter

      A model that derives it's lift from a main rotor and it may or may not have a trail rotor for control. Main rotor and it may or may not have a trail rotor for contro.

      Scale

      Scale aircraft are miniature versions of a full sized aircraft. They can be models of any tyoe of aircraft that have flown from the earliest days ...

      Gliders

      Gliders derive their lift from their air around them. They characteristically have high aspect ratio wings (long and thin) and are streamlined in appearance.

      Multirotor

      These models have multiple motors, normally 4 but some up to 8 and they have sophisticated software and GDP equipment for control.

      Seaplanes

      Like the full size these are aircraft that take off and land on water. They can have floats or a fuselage similar to a boat hull.

      FPV

      First-person view (FPV) or remote-person view (RPV) is simply video piloting. Through a radio-controlled aircraft you get a pilot's view ...

      Old Timer

      Old time free flight models, circa 1935 to 1956, converted to radio control and flown competitively in mulitple classes ...
