In the past, many have tried to build a comprehensive RC model database and the task is huge. Now, It's time for me to try this challenge and offer something new and usefull to the community.
What will this site offer you ?
When you click on a model, you will see the following (You can take this link
as an example)
1A] Info about the model
1B] Model Icons for your radio
1C] Pictures of course
1D] Info about the origal aircraft
1E] Online Shops where you can buy the model
2] Logo and Name of the Supplier
3] Model's User Manual link
4] Main model picture
5] Model Rating
6] Essential specifications
7] More technical information
8] Variations of the model
Info about models
I'm not testing the models, it's not the goal of this website. The purpose is to offer information about RC models.
Of course, you can already find the information we are showing here but we believe/hope it will be easier for you to find everything in one place.
Icons for your radio
SkyRaccoon, for the ones who already know this website, was the beginning of the history. It was a repository of model icons for Frsky radios.
So we kept this feature, you can still download the icons to make your radio more fancy.
For now, we only have the FrSky icons (for OpenTX and FrOS) but we plan to add in the future other formats for other radio offering this capability (Spektrum, Futaba, ...)
Info about the original aircraft
Wikipedia is a great source of information, and once again, we don't invent anything but we send you to the right place.
So we use the Wikipedia database when it's available to give you more information about the original aircraft.
Shop where you can buy the model
AIR-RC will also be a repository of online shops where you can buy the model your are interested in.
We don't plan to get an exhaustive listing of all the shops worldwide but at least we can tell you the main ones, the ones who are offering a good range of products where you have a good chance to find your model.
For now, we can't be sure 100% that the shops we are listing here are offering the one you are looking for but at least, we know they are selling models of the related suppliers.
You can rate the models and help the community by giving your feedback and experience about the models you already own.
For now, it's a basic 5 stars solution but we plan to extend this feature to full review thateach of you would be able to fill in.
