Reviews - What do our customers think?
For the Inquisitive R/C Enthusiast: Start Here!  Apr 29, 2008
Don't judge this book by it's lightweight looking cover like I once did. This book is a CLASSIC filled with 100's of pages of important information for understanding aerodynamics in general and improving your model aircraft. Simons has a gift for conveying all of this knowledge without resorting to mind-numbing mathematics, instead relying on vector graphics and charts so that all can follow along. I am now reading the book for a second time highlighting important bits as I go! It's a great value for anyone wanting to design or just learn more about their R/C hobby. There are even chapters on the dynamics of propellers and helicopters. Appendix 1 contains all the salient calculations necessary to design a plane from scratch. Appendix 2 has some experimental data on airfoils. Appendix 3 has hundreds of airfoils and laminar bodies from many different sources. Publishers: please add more polar data to appendix 2 and replace that cheesy cover with something more appropriate in the next edition.
Good explanation of aerodynamic basics  Nov 5, 2006
This books gives a good qualitative explanation of the aerodynamic basics. Calculations are left in the appendix, so the mathophobics will not be intimidated. It debunks myths such as the "dive test". The only bad thing about this book is a few typos on graphs that can be rather confusing.
The best ever  Mar 26, 2006
For aeromodelers or for guys who want to learn about low reynolds behavior, this is the Bible.
Great for understanding planes of all sizes  Aug 7, 2004
Even though its focus is models, this book is a great inexpensive companion to the far more costly textbooks on full-scale airplane design. A lot of its discussion is applicable to aircraft of any scale. About 1/3 of the book is devoted to airfoils, including discussions of section shape, camber, turbulent flow, laminar flow and the impact of Reynolds number. Like the other reviewer I particular like the appendixes which cover almost 130 pages of this book. The appendixes contain most of the math in the book, including the mathematical formulas for computing lift coefficient, camber, drag, static margin, etc. Mostly, though, they contain wind tunnel test results and profile shapes for many airfoils, not just the NACA ones, but also Eppler, Wortmann and Selig profiles and a few others that I had never heard of. The NACA profiles are easy to find (like in 'Theory of Wing Sections') but its nice to see such an extensive list of the harder-to-find profiles as well.
