Modelers are always looking for information, and the Internet can be a great resource. Whether you are looking for details on the hottest new releases, trying to locate a flying field or simply trying to figure out the best propeller for your aircraft, you’ll likely find it on the Internet. A simple search on Google using “model airplane” comes up with roughly 3,140,000 results. Try “RC helicopter” and you’ll get 10,900,000. It’s obvious that there’s a wealth of information, maybe even too much, depending on how much time you have to research. Below are some of Jay's online favorites.
