- Many balsa wood kits don’t come with a motor or RC components, so you’ll need to provide them
- But, they are reasonably priced which makes them great gifts
- They can be a lot of fun to build as a group project with kids
There are lots of different model aircraft kits, ranging from detail recreations of classic military aircraft to radio-controlled balsa wood kits.
We’ve always had a fascination with the sky, which is probably why the human race ventured into the skies in the first place. You can get a little bit of aviation history with these model aircraft kits which include radio controlled kits and gliders.
With any model that requires assembly, be sure you know what you’re getting in to beforehand. They all come with instructions but some are more advanced than others, so it’s always best to check.
Although balsa wood models can appear to be fragile, they are lightweight and robust. It’s not recommended you dog fight with other occupants of the sky (as it’s unlikely you will win), but with a bit of skill and agility you can bring your model safely back to ground, ready for your next outing.
