There I was walking along in the boot sale when I spied two boxes beneath a desperately unstable table. Dived in and found about 120 copies of The Model Engineer from the 30s 40s 50s and 60s. £7 later I struggle back to my car and am now consumed by them. Believe me it's much better than watching politicians posing on tele. Anyway, thought you might like to see the report of the 1951 Speed Competition.
1950 for me Doug. The 50s still fascinate me. Found an article on 'The Mechanics of Radio Control' by Raymond F Stock, dealing with electromagnets and the wire gauge and number of turns therein, but, generally, the fifties must have seen RC in it's formative years.
