All Up Weight or AUW is the actual flying weight. Includes batteries/fuel ect.

The red circled part? Thats the control horn. It is on the surface you want to move.
Did that help?

That's called a 'clevis'.

Here's one for the glider guiders, what do the various designations Like F3B, F5A, R2D2 and so on mean? I know they are different type of competitions, but on the groups they are thrown around in referance to types of aircraft too.

I would like to know what each one means, or if used to tag a certain type of bird what would that plane be?

Ya, great question. They designate different competition classes. But Not sure what they all are.
I do know that F3K is DLG and R2D2 is a little robot with attitude

Thanks.

Y'know, this thread has gotten so long that it's shear size has invalidated it's purpose: to provide a single place that a beginner can go to look up that strange and unknown RC term. No beginner is going to read through 27 pages of posts just to find one word. It may be high time (pun intended) for someone to go through this and make an actual dictionary alphabetically arranged, on one page so that it will actually be useful.

Perhaps an Admin. who can lock it yet still access it at any time for updates as necessary?
