RC airplane books: Design

RC airplane books are widely available, but books about design are sometimes hard to find. Here is a collection, from Amazon, that will save you search time!

My favorite RC airplane book 

Radio Control Scale Aircraft book

The book you see here is very old (My copy was published in 1980). I use this book every time I start a design process.

It is sometimes available as a used book and I strongly advise you to obtain a copy, as long as it is not too expensive!

It is a bit dated now, but a lot of the info will always be current and all the aspects of scale model design are covered, from choosing the subject, through the drafting process ( CAD is not even mentioned!), construction, covering and finishing and right through to the first flight.

All in all, it is a great book that you will be constantly referring to.
