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. Read the entire list as well as specific elements within each site on page 22 in the Fall 2011 Park Pilot.
