Even being a science grads, for flying I just know the basic Bernoulli theorem. I bought a book suggested in the forum and its nothing but waste of money (Rs 700  on mere 40 pages)

http://www.flipkart.com/fly-rc-tips-tricks-techniques/0981799515-7bx3frsucb/fly-rc-tips/1

I remember lending a real good book on Aeromodel scratch building from British Library, but I was very immature for these intrinsic details back in Class 6th then.

What I am looking for is some decent book on airframe design, written my modelers explaining basic theories and practical implication to kept in mind while designing from scratch in a plain language even non technical people may understand. some math is okay. To start with, I dont even know what should be the ratio of the surface area between wing, elevators and rudders!! with so many CAD tools, I can atleast shorten my design time, without wasting resources on building all the intermediate designs (may be just 1/5 of otherwise).

Any URL, recommendation, PDF or photocopies would highly appreciated!! the "Aeromodeling" itself is not in the English dictionary, google search return lot of crap!

TIA,
Ujjwal

Try the articles on the AMA site http://www.masportaviator.com. This is a good site albeit with older articles. What the heck we are learning anyway. Good step-by-step articles in detail on how to assemble a trainer. Search around and you will surely see a lot of build howto articles. Another good site is www.airfieldmodels.com

Try the sites, Traplet Publications  www.traplet.com and www.modelflying.co.uk from UK. Model Aeroplane news site (thier online shop section) these have good selection of books on various topics of interest to us modellers.
If you are looking for sport scale type then Gordon Whitehead's "Scale Aircraft models for everyday flying" is the bible.This is out of print now and does turn up on ebay and other places. So you need to keep your eyes peeled
