Radio-controlled model aircraft offer hobbyists many challenges and demand a number of unique skills, notably the ability to remotely control them in three dimensions. These powered models may use tiny internal combustion engines or electric motors, though some rare models use jet propulsion.
While aerobatic models perform complex manoeuvres, slower types help beginners learn the ropes. Moreover, ready-to-fly models require minimal assembly, while kits require building from scratch. Radio-controlled model aircraft open the skies to anyone who wants to fly.
