Orville and Wilbur Wright
History Of AirplanesEdit
There is nothing more wonderful than the sensation of flying. The history of flying is one that is as fascinating as flying itself. In the many history books the Wright Brothers are credited with being the first ones to fly. While these are individuals that have lead to people flying in the skies the history of flying model airplanes is not that well known.
To make the history of airplanes like the model airplanes known you have to travel back in time. During the late 19 century hydrogen filled model airplanes were designs. These were not as complex as the ones of today are. As the new airplanes are controlled by radio signals the older model airplanes were guided by electronic signals.
The history of airplanes of this type state that these remote controlled model airplanes were used only as theatrical acts. At this point they were guided around audience halls. Later on the use of these model airplanes was changed. This change started to occur during sometime during the First World War. The Kettering Bug was produced to be the first target radio controlled airplane. It was not seen as being a reliable airplane to guide however.
Once you get past these first attempts at radio controlled airplanes you will see the development of model airplanes. These model airplanes which were made from plans based on real scale airplanes. The history of airplanes will not show you which airplane designs were originally used. The first thing that is apparent is that all of these plans are made so that people had an idea of what they needed to do in order to build a model airplane which would work.
The real development of model airplanes can found after this period. As you look through the history of airplanes in particular model airplanes you will find that many people have been credited with the developments which were made to certain parts of the airplanes. The design of airplane wings have been modified in scale model airplanes so that they will be able to fly in moderate to high winds without having any turbulence over turning the plane.
Sometimes you will find the history of airplanes detailing how the airplanes were controlled by various radio signals. The design of the radios is made so that there is relatively no worry about any obstructions taking place between the plane and the control box. As with all types of history, the history of airplanes details only a small section of human achievement.
