CLUB TOOLS

DEDICATED FLYING GROUPS



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 its 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 control.


Scale

Scale aircraft are miniature versions of full sized aircraft. They can be models of any type of aircraft that have flown from the earliest days to the most futuristic being created today.


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. Some have the ability to launch themselves with retractable motors just like the full size. Others need to be towed or winched aloft.


Multirotor

A rapidly growing area, these models has multiple motors, normally 4 but some up to 8 and they have sophisticated software and GPS equipment for control. This is the most common platform used for first person view (FPV) and for aerial photography.


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. They can have floats or a fuselage similar to a boat hull. 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 (think unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)). Via an onboard camera, video is fed wirelessly through FPV goggles so you can act like a bird.


Old Timer

Old time free flight models, circa 1935 to 1956, converted to radio control and flown competitively in multiple classes of climb and glide events.
