Ever since I was a little kid I have loved air planes. When I first got my license and found out that you could marry amateur radio with remote controlled vehicles it really got me interested.

In radio controlled vehicles, frequency is the specific radio signal sent from the transmitter to the receiver to control the vehicle. There is a greater variety of channels and additional frequencies available in hobby-grade vehicles. These are the most common frequencies used in both toy and hobby RC vehicles in the United States. Used in both toy-grade and hobby-grade RC vehicles, there are six color-coded channels. Channel 4 yellow is the most commonly used frequency for toy RCs. Learn more about 27MHz for RC vehicles.
A radio-controlled aircraft often called RC aircraft or RC plane is a small flying machine that is controlled remotely by an operator on the ground using a hand-held radio transmitter. The transmitter communicates with a receiver within the craft that sends signals to servomechanisms servos which move the control surfaces based on the position of joysticks on the transmitter. The control surfaces, in turn, affect the orientation of the plane.

Especially this time round where a lot had been at stake for amateur radio world wide! A IARU team took part, representing the interests of amateur radio.
