Chapter 88

RC Clubs - Local

It began with a trip to a small-town dime store in Ohio when he was roughly 3 years old. He asked his mother for an airplane. According to his biography, when faced with a choice between a 10¢ and a 20¢ airplane, she bought him the latter. How could she say no to her smart, curious, blonde-headed little boy?

That was the beginning of his love of aeromodeling, sparking a passion that would lead to a life that altered the course of history. That was merely one step for a little boy who would one day take one giant leap for mankind.

The little boy’s name was Neil  Armstrong, and his desire to build and fly model airplanes didn’t stop with his first model. 

In fact many pilots get their start with RC modeling.
