Best place to start pursue an interest in Aviation is to pick up a new hobby like Aeromodelling . So how should I start Aeromodelling ?

This question have been by asked all the Aeromodelers around the world when they began Aeromodelling. Learning Aeromodelling is not like learning to play with a flying toy but lot more than that. It is an art for which you need not possess from birth. All you need to be is passionate with Aeroplanes and determination to pilot a model airplane. There is wide variety of Aeromodels available in the market with varying complexities.

Flying models are usually what is meant by the term aeromodelling. Most flying model aircraft can be placed in one of three groups:

Free flight (F/F) model aircraft fly without any method of external control from the ground. This type of model pre-dates the efforts of the Wright Brothers and other pioneers.

Control line (C/L) model aircraft use cables (usually two) leading from the wing to the pilot. A variation of this system is the Round-the-pole flying (RTP) model.

Radio-controlled aircraft have a transmitter operated by the pilot on the ground, sending signals to a receiver in the craft. Some flying models resemble scaled down versions of piloted aircraft, while others are built with no intention of looking like piloted aircraft.
