For those customers engaged in custom projects, if you order...

  • Category: Beginner Guides, Tips and Tricks
  • Getting started in electric R/C flying can be an extremely fun and rewarding endeavor.  That wasn't always the case.  Years ago technology was limited, especially in electric flying.  Thousands of potential R/C flyers undoubtedly walked away from the hobby in frustration after not seeking the appropriate guidance and training.  We've all heard the stories of the guy (let's call him "Bob") who invested in a nice model, took it out to a flying site (or perhaps NOT a flying site!) with no flying skills whatsoever and proceeded to smash it into pieces.   Angry and frustrated Bob decides the hobby is a...
