Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal, A workshop to make super sky bolt RC plane was organised at Jawahar Bal Bhavan under the series of workshops.
Suject expert Anubhav Shukla informed that super sky bolt (radio control model) is a biplane. It was used during the World War 2. The aircraft has a classic structure consisting of a welded tube fuselage and wooden wings, all fabric covered.
It is a tandem open-cockpit two-seat biplane and is stressed for normal aerobatics. The cockpits are frequently constructed as a single tandem cabin with an enclosing bubble canopy.
Some aerobatic competition aircraft are built as single seaters with the front cockpit closed off.Jawahar Bal Bhavan director Dr Umashankar Nagayach said aero-modelling activities are being conducted only by Jawahar Bal Bhavan. Children learn to make various types of planes and they also learn about them.
