rc jets

I'd like to leave a few comments about the ScratchBuilders guide i found on RCPOWERS. I am a complete newbie to r/c aircraft. I do have a good sense of flight characteristics and can though distinguish it etc. but completely newbie to the R/C world. After i purchased this Course and went through it ,now I can say the information contained here is priceless. This course does a great job in two ways:
A) It goes over one of their kits in DETAIL.
B) Explaining general and intermediate (yet you feel advanced after comprehending it all) knowledge of r/c aircraft and ALL of its components.
The only questions you'll walk away with are how to make to it better in a sense that you truly fully comprehend the r/c aircraft. As a newbie that's now better learned on r/c aircraft I can only attribute to having this course. Thank you rcpowers!!!

This site contains largest ParkJet communities and provides its customers fast flying services.

jets rc hope you guys will like it



regards!

I'd say so, a complete newbie to RC that found RCPowers site (well known on this forum) and had to share with other newbies. I don't buy it.

Notice in their post the "Registration is painless" part is an image.

I don't begrudge anyone trying to make a few bucks, but I'm sure every bit as good advice and information (and better) is available right in this forum, for free. Along with plans of models similar too and quite possibly better than those RCPowers sells.

I only know RCPowers from watching a few of their videos and while they seem genuine and enthusiastic I'm not sure their knowledge and advice is always the very best.

I agree. But I especially enjoyed RC Powers explaining all about desirable characteristics for a first plane while the video is showing him flying an F-22 jet all over the place. Talk about mixed messages!

Could be. This is a dead giveaway "... RCPOWERS. I am a complete newbie to r/c aircraft."

My fav video is the one when he is doing a "review" of a little foamy MiG 15.
Says the elevs are just to small to be effective and makes some new ones that are twice the size as the originals.
...it was a vicious snap stall into the dirt.

In the early videos, he has a cute wife that giggles and is 100% behind his crazy planes & has cute things to say. Plus there's that fella he pulled out of a dumpster that does something also. Not sure why he's there.

LOL! Remember that one! I agree, enthusiastic, but quite often wrong! Or at least he's right about things for the wrong reasons. But he's very like many (Not all!) of the airline captain's I dealt with, always KNOWS he's right!
