March 1969 American Aircraft ModelerTable of Contents
Some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
These pages were scanned from the March 1969 edition of American Aircraft Modeler. It is hard to imagine a time when we did not have all the ready-to-fly, high performance radio controlled helicopters like we have today. Teams of design engineers now create the 3D-out-of-the-box machines and sell them with a radio system installed for less than just the price of a 4-channel proportional R/C system of the 1960s/1970s. The ingenuity of the pioneers is apparent in these photos (click for larger versions).
This edition of Model World... on the International Scene reported on Germany's first R/C model helicopter contest.
