The Flying Machine Kit demonstrates the basic aerodynamic principles and helps to understand the forces that affect flight. It contains two paper planes, a rubber-band-powered single-prop plane, a super speedy twin-prop plane and a vertical take-off helicopter. There are graphic explanations of how key flight forces – gravity, drag, thrust and lift – work. The book also explains how different flying surfaces such as wings, aero foils, ailerons, elevators and rudders can be adjusted to control and direct flight. Flying hints and tips suggest how to manipulate your machines’ speed, distance and flight direction. Illustrated timelines give a context of key aviation inventions. This is the perfect starter kit for all aviation fans.
