RC Balsa Kits

Has Building become a Lost Art? No not Really!

RC Balsa kits for radio control airplane flying are not plentiful as they were in years past.

One reason might be, because many experienced and beginner pilots are preferring ARF (Almost-Ready-to-Fly) model airplanes. Many rc pilots do not have time to build balsa wood airplane kits.

In the early 1980's building rc models, was very popular with veteran pilots.Even beginners did not mine learning to build an radio control airplane before learning to fly.

But their are people building aircraft today. You can TOO!
