    Good for begging models

    Great book for beginer. Nothing is being written for a young person interested in building flying models these days. No book of this type can ever be "to old". Starting with the basics is always best. Unfortunately the hobby, in the United States, has been replaced by " ready to fly" which only serves the toy manufactures and retailers. Kids don't learn much of anything useful from from flying these models unless they aspire to become drone pilotes in the army.
    The only shortcoming of the older books is that some products have been replaceed or are hard to find and modern magazines don't inform the youth about these changes.
    If you are intersted at all, read this littlt book.
