The majority of these are Free Flight and not Radio controlled,and a few are Ucontrol, but it's still a nice video

My son Alex (30yo) and I (58yo) are both qualified full size pilots who love flying rc models, mainly foamies on 2.4. I Love this video but it makes me maudlin. Where did all that enthusiasm and sense of adventure go? Alex tries to pass it on by teaching people to glide, which he loves. I did my bit by flying him in a Piper Tomahawk when he was three years old which sowed the seed which grew. But as he says "Your privileged, dad- to have seen men get to; land on, and get back safe from the moon. Thats not happened in my lifetime". Hmm...But lets think positive and try to infect people with a new interest. Horizon Hobby are doing great things to bring youngsters into model flying and look at Alex's efforts with Glide Britain and as Chief Flying Instructor at Rattlesden Gliding Club (search google, youtube and facebook). Spread the word as I am trying to do now and have fun with aviation

Great video, notice the large crowds watching these guy's fly, model airplanes were as high tech as cell phones are to us today, my first model airplane I ever saw was a man test gliding a free flight plane at the school a block from my house, I was probably 5 or 6 years old, after watching him for about 5 minutes before he left, that was it, I was gonna fly model airplanes. I flew control line Cox and Wen Mac models starting when I was about 9 years old in 1963, I built my first free flight model when I was 11. I joined the USAF in 1972, still flying control line .35 and .40 size models, started flying R/C with a falcon 56 in 1973 using a Heathkit radio that I built myself(what a job, linear output servo's), well, I flew R/C until 2005, my job got too busy to go fly. About a month ago, I dragged all my old control line models out of the attic and started rebuilding them, I have so far made about 10 flights, I only planted one Twister so far. I have no problem flying R/C, did some of the 3-D flying, inverted is no problem, coming or going, but grab onto your roots of model airplanes, man, I picked up those control lines and it was like an old friend on the other end of those 60 Ft. lines. I thought it would be easy to fly control line again, 60 miles per hour doesn't sound fast but it's like trying to fly R/C the first time with no one to help, the plane is way ahead of you plus you're sometimes 4 ft. off the ground, you think you're good at R/C, come out and fly Control line, then you will see just how good you are. I have absolute respect for all versions of this hobby, what ever version you do, have fun doing it.

Can someone tell me when the first RC airplanes were used for comsumer/commercial purposes - was it 1930? Also, can someone date the various clips within this video?
Robert Salser (1 год назад)
Max, there are a lot of web sites on the history of model aviation, the first R/C plane was in 1939 called the Guff flown by Walt and Bill Good. I actually collect these old engines, I have one from the 20's, but these were all free flight models before the radio came along, and even the engines were the same for years, they had little speed control.

that looks like real fun.... today so much electric...
Robert Salser (1 год назад)
A lot of communities are building too close to model airplane fields and are complaining about the noise, electric is here to stay, I am back to flying control line, electric is even taking hold of control line models, they are great, you turn it on, walk to the handle, and a few seconds later the motor starts and off you go, you can set the time of flight, you can set the motor to pick up rpm in a climb and slow back down in level flight, and there is no clean up when you're done. Myself, I like to smell the fuel while I'm flying, I like the noise, I like the whole experience, just have fun with it, don't be too serious, you're gonna loose one every now and then.

the 30's share a lot with model flyers of 2016. Catches my eye too that the gas engines are so small.
Barbara DuBeck (2 года назад)
I remember my oldest brother, now 68, used to make and fly the gas powered free flight planes. He used to tell my father that one day there would be "Electric motor model planes" and my father would laugh and it's impossible cause of weight.

Why dislike history doccuments ??? Simply ignorance, they aren't familiar with theorigins of that hobby, only viewing r/c RTF models or electronic aided drones, that´s sure !
RC Hobbyist Extreme (2 года назад)
This video captures the spirit of what it took back then to fly. There was no open box,chatge battery,fly plane back then. You actually had to BUILD the plane,those remotes didnt come cheap eather I remember the constant problems with interference too. Any one too close with a radio turned to the right frequency could mess you up. A police radio, an airplane ,anything could cause issues really. My brother spent his entire winter building his planes,only to watch them crack up sometime during the season. Back then,you learned the hard way unless you were a member of a flying club. we lived by the high school and my dad woulnt take us to an AMA field. I flew the cheap cox planes,as did most of us. I traded something for mine,an old bike or something. I got my first balsa from an old guy down the road. I had fun with that too. I had built several balsa with tissue covered planes. you had to coat them with airplane dope to stretch the tissue,it hardened like a shell,then you could paint them. they were rubber band powered but fun too!
Alan Turton (2 года назад)
Just a small point, but the doping process was to shrink the tissue - not cause it to stretch. Scott is right about the cost. My first Orbit proportional cost over $500 - and that was through 'Exportations'- Cliff Rausin- in the USA and hand delivered to Australia by a friend!

I had the chance to sit down and talk with a few of the old guys that are still making these "free flight" models. So interesting and so cool to see how far me have come.
Steve Stults (2 года назад)
I didn't fly, but used to go watch back in the day. I remember guys in the mid 1960s who could put their aircraft into a spin almost into the ground and pull out with those primitive sets. And they were expensive. . .much more than today for systems that would do much less.
Robert Salser (1 год назад)
I know your post is a year old, but when I started flying R/C in 1973, a Kraft proportional radio cost 6 or 7 hundred dollars. I bought an Orbit 6 ch. single stick radio because it was only $450.00. For years they were really expensive, then came Japanese radio's called Futaba, you could buy one for a hundred bucks and it was reliable, that was when R/C really took off.
Chris c (2 года назад)
thanks for the video, i enjoyed we have come a long way. it must of been hard on the emotions with the first planes knowing you are gonna crash every time you fly.. but then if you did not know of any other way i guess it would not matter. part of the fun is building after all.. rock on from AZ>

Jan Christian Frodahl (2 года назад)
Many are RC pilots but not modellers, and many of those pilots, not all, just don`t appreciate the history or the efforts you had to put in to get airborne back in the day. I`ve talked to people about RC and have had them all like: "oh you BUILT that thing? Why don`t you just get an RTF, much easier.." Then I have to tell them all about the joy of building and how much more satisfying it is to see something you built entirely on your own take flight, fly well, and land well. Then crash it, fix it, and fly it again! :D

Olav Bergman (3 года назад)
Nice footage, but...uh..history?...tel me...how did they do rc, back then? When did it start.. I'd call this video 'old videos of model airplanes'
Bill Fife (2 года назад)
+grahvis I still have a kit for an escapement for rudder. Was told the single-channel receiver I was going to use wouldn't work because of cb radio interference.
grahvis (3 года назад)
+Olav Bergman In the 60s I flew single channel planes, instead of a servo there was a rubber powered actuator. One press for right and two quick ones for left, though I used to trim for a gentle left turn and control just with right. Or it might have been the other way round.
Appollo (3 года назад)
Wow, if they could only see what we have today like they would proply say it's impossible . I could only dream of what tomorrow will bring.
Alan Turton (2 года назад)
Further to the above, I recall a Melbourne Newspaper phoning me to do a story on 'this marvellous' model. Having been notified because I had just been 'licensed' to operate a radio transmitter to control a model. That's right, we needed a licence to operate a transmitter. PS I have written this without having been able to download the video because of an 'error'. Sorry if I have covered material in the video.
Alan Turton (2 года назад)
hi Appollo. As an 85yr old, I reckon I can offer some of those words. Mainly, they would be about how the challenge had changed. It is no longer an achievement to have a 'working' radio, or a properly controlled model. But it is now possible to cover a much wider field of model types,build them cheaply and fly them. Also the 'wonder' has gone. How many 'old timers' can remember that first successful model, and the wonder of remotely causing a change of flight path? I am just happy to have been down that track, and treasure both the old and new aspects, and still build and fly.

Very cool to see early footage like this. Its amazing to see the old models and to think of the effort they had to put into building in those days. Today we are lucky, with RTF and ARF planes you can unbox and assemble them and be flying within a couple hours or less!

I'd say the real breakthrough was when radio control equipment began to be based on integrated circuits, i.e. mid-1970s. Before that it was expensive, complicated and unreliable.
