How about all of the cc type references (not as in carbon copy) but like ccc flights? I think it has something to do with turning?

You mean CCW = Counter Clock Wise? That would indicate a turn. I don't recall ever having read about ccc...

Aileron or roll is the sideways shifting movement. Elevator controls forward and backward on a helicopter.

BnF = Bind and Fly, meaning a bare helicopter, without transmitter (TX) and battery. Easy if you just want a spare heli, but don't want to pay for things you don't need.

thanks solo, so this means that "pitch" is the same as "elevator"
and "aileron" is the same as "roll" or "side strafe"?

Pitch I am not sure off, since CP helis can change blade angle, and this is called pitch as well. But roll=aileron=side strafe
