RC Scale models are miniature replicas of full-scale aircraft.  They are judged for the degree of perfection in matching the full-scale aircraft's scaled measurements, finish, details, etc.  How well the models' flight maneuvers match those the full-scale aircraft could perform is also scored.  The models are quite varied; almost any airplane you can think of has modeled.  Today, even jet aircraft are becoming popular and are normally found in the top 10 of any Scale contest.
