"I would like to reply to your comments on aerofoil sections for 3D models. The aim of these models is to fly relatively slowly so that transition in to hovering manouvers can be achieved low to the ground from any attitude. The symmetrical section obviously caters for the varied upright/inverted entry attitudes. The large radius leading edge and thick section (up around 15% or more) cater for the slower speeds and higher angles of attack as well as a profile drag component. This all has to do with what is occuring at the stagnation point (where the airflow has to decide to go either under or over the wing). The location of the thickest point from the leading edge also affects transition from laminar flow to turbulent flow and also the point when separation of the airflow would occur. This is dependant on the angle of attack but also the airspeed at that angle. Due to the low Reynolds numbers involved (our relatively small models) the transition points from laminar to turbulent flow MAY often be far further back than on a full size airofoil. Separation bubbles with reattachment may result and these bubbles may move around the surface of the wing in varying attitudes. This may explain why some of the more critical model wings become erratic on one day and not on another. I got a bit carried away with the techy stuff, but I hope it means something."

"Hi, I ran across your site while browsing for some items. I agreed with your profile of a modeler wholeheartedly. I worry we may be a dying breed. Keep the faith is all we can do. Your site will, no doubt, contribute to the continuation of our marvelous and fantastic hobby or if you prefer artform. Sincerely, Harold Yates in Pensacola Fla"

"Marvelous site, thank you for constructing it. Two weeks ago I thought about trying aircraft modelling as a hobby, and upon finding your site knew that with your help I could accomplish whatever I wanted to do. About 10 days ago ran down to the hobby shop and purchased a 48\" wing span Tiger Moth kit (on sale) and a Guillows J-3 rubber powered free flight kit to practise on. Well,my wife is asleep and I just had to tell somebody....\"THE CUB FLIES\"! 30\' straight and true, almost hit the fence, glad I only wound it 25 times. One retorical question- with looking after such a comprehensive web site, how do you ever find time to build anything? Thanks for the help."

"Absolutely the best R/C model site I have visited. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. You un-selfishly share what obviously took years to learn, not trying to imply you are old :-). Again....THANK YOU !!!"

"I would like to thank you for the great tips on this site, when I was younger I just to build hand craved model boats but now that I am older I have turned to RC airplanes, and this is just the site I need to help me build my next project a Ct 114 tutor. Thanks for the great tips and keep them coming. Thanks Again"
