Descripción:

Paperback. 202 pages. If you have spent much time around model airplanes over the past twenty five years or so, you will probably already recognize the name Robert A. Benjamin. Bob published his first article in the old Model Builder magazine in 1983. Pick up any U. S. model magazine today and the chances are very good that Bob has written material for that title or that of the current magazines predecessor. He has published over thirty articles featuring original designs or gas-to-electric conversions of popular kits, and many more including product reviews, event reports and how-to info. Bob wrote and directed the video program All Because Of Model Airplanes that has been used for years as the signature presentation at the National Aeromodeling Museum in Muncie, Indiana, as well as the instructional series Getting Started In Electric Flight and several other specialized titles produced for the AMA. He is also the artist behind that long series of aircraft paintings that appeared on the covers of Model Builder and Model Aviation magazines during the 80s and 90s. In 1990 Bob began his career as a dedicated RC Scale competitor as one of a tiny handful of model builders who pioneered the use of electric power head-to-head with traditional engine powered models. Since then he has managed to become the first modeler ever to compete using electric power at the U. S. Scale Masters, at TOP GUN, and in 2002 as a member of Team USA at the World F4C (RC Scale) Championships in Toronto, Canada. There has never been an electric category at any of those events. In 2006 he was inducted into the Model Aviation Hall of Fame. It was not always like that. Bob Benjamins life with model airplanes goes back to the late 1940s. He has had his fair share of experience as the little boy hanging over the flying field fence and as the kid who scratched and saved for months to put a McCoy 35 on a Ringmaster. From classic stick-and-tissue rubber jobs to RC scale electric ducted fan jets, Bob has been there and done that. He knows what it feels like to fly a model by sheer force of will on a second-hand, third-rate radio and he knows what it feels like to have the very best RC systems in the world for the asking as a factory sponsored master modeler. The only thing Bob Benjamin never learned was how to give up. Hey Mister, Will It Fly is his personal story of how it all happened. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de ref. de la librería
