The Basics This is the start of a new series which has the sole purpose of attracting people to the hobby and sport of model aviation. Notice that I wrote “hobby” and “sport”; the hobby aspect involves building and assembling model aircraft, and the sport part involves the flying. As you will quickly learn, you don’t have to be a builder to be a flier! But as time goes along, I hope you will want to learn to do both. Throughout this series it is our intention to explain all facets of model aviation. Monthly articles geared toward the beginner and the intermediate will become a regular from now on. Sometimes a single subject will be presented, and at other times you may see several subjects in a single month. Magazine issues tend to get lost or misplaced. Unless you faithfully make your own scrapbook of information, data retrieval becomes a problem. The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) has every intention of making this series available on CD-ROM and on a dedicated Web site. In both cases, the idea is to make all the information accessible and easy to locate for as long as you need it. In addition to monthly articles, it is also hoped to publish key questions readers ask. These FAQs (Frequently-Asked Questions) will be cataloged by subject matter and placed on CD-ROM and in Web-site format for the aid of the beginners. Where to Start? You might be out driving on a summer day and pass by a model-aircraft flying field. You see a model in the sky maneuvering much like a full-scale airplane. At first you might think it is a full-scale airplane. You stop and watch, then think “I’d like to try that.” But how do you take that first step?
