Yippee!
FAQs 103-V2 has arrived !!!

FAQs 103 is a compilation of questions taken from the beginner's forum. It is a continuation of FAQs 101 and 102. It doesn't have lots of pretty pictures. It is not meant as a a substitute for FAQs 101 and 102. If you are just beginning - recommend reading those first. They are beginner friendly. They start from the ground level. FAQs 103 is after take off. It assumes you are already flying. All the questions have been taken from the forum and rephrased – rewritten – edited – condensed – expanded – and everything but shredded and encrypted to insure the removal of the identity of the original poster. All the answers are my own – there is no guarantee they are the correct answers – but they were the best ones I could think of at the time. They are based on real-time experience. They are based on long-time experience. They are organized, collated, and presented in an informative, factual, sometimes in your face, mannerism and style. I'm not publishing it. I'm not paying a publisher which means you don't have to pay the publisher. It's FREE!! Did he say free?? YES!! It is a gift of gratitude. Gratitude for allowing me to be part of your learning experience. Gratitude for giving me purpose. Gratitude for your trust. Gratitude for your encouragement. I have a defective gene. It's called a ‟teacher's gene”. It is not curable. After retiring as a college prof for 10 years I hoped it would diminish. But it only grew worse. I started learning about RC helicopters to keep my mind busy. It wasn't enough. I started writing books. The Phoenix Simulator Flight School was air-born 6 years ago. My defective gene has been helping students ever since. There is nothing I can do but feed it and it has a voracious appetite. FAQs 103 isn't finished - it will never be finished. All I can do is try to keep up with it. Much like this hobby – the technology is moving so fast if you stand in one spot for more than a month – the ‟obsolete” ground crew will be scraping you off the runway. I'm making the FAQs available soon – today – as soon as I finish typing this. It will be the first of a continuous series. How many will be in the series? Ask me in 6 months. How do you get a copy? Scratch your email on this post. You can encode it if you think a troll will get it – I'll figure it out. Feel free to make copies. It is in normal PDF format so no special reader is required. Pass the word. Pass a copy. Pass the donuts and coffee! PLEASE SHARE YOUR COMMENTS. You don't have to like FAQs 103. Some may hate it. Like it or hate it - share it. Share your opinion. Share your reading experience. Have a great read!! Have a great flight!! Have a safe flight!!

Airman's notice - the 2nd volume has just completely flight tests. It has been retrofitted with the latest technology. There is no publisher to navigate through. It is very fast. It can reach your computer in the time it takes to push the "send" button on my computer. Have a great read!!

CJ, you are a legend
I will be your ambassador to feed my novice club members with the word.
Your previous works (1&2) have been soaked up, I particularly liked your 'Q&A' bits where the answers were same (e.g. Never or Never). This new (3) will be greatly received by our club members and surely be an inspiration to achieve more
Here I am.... area50@virginmedia.com
Best.... R

Thank you RW for your kind words and encouragement. FAQs 103 has taken off and should be in your mailbox before you finish reading this! There is a lot of "collective" wisdom in that FAQs - wisdom that has been collected and passed onto me and I am delighted to pass it along. Have a great read!!
