What Is a Scale Model Aircraft Anyway?
A scale model aircraft is a reduced scale replica of a real flying machine – a plane, glider, helicopter, etc. Model aircraft is a broader term, referring to any small-size unmanned aircraft. Basically, there are two major aircraft model groups: flying and non-flying.
Flying model aircraft range from toy gliders built of foam polystyrene or cardstock to powered RC planes usually made of bamboo, balsa wood, plastic carbon, fiber fiberglass or styrofoam. They are skinned with mylar covering or tissue paper, and some of them can be extremely large mainly when used to study and research the flying properties of full-scale aircraft designs.
