New Electric Sailplane Clinic DVD: Preview Trailer

Hi guys, this is Paul Naton of Radio Carbon Art Productions and for the past few years the number one customer requested training DVD project was for an electric sailplane series. http://www.radiocarbonart.com/esc/

Well, the first DVD of the series is now out, (and man, a ton of you guys already bought it!) and it is titled the Electric Sailplane Clinic. This 2 hour intensive training program covers the basic skills and information you'll need for successful electric soaring.

The Electric Clinic is also my first DVD shot in beautiful 1080 High Definition, which greatly adds to the quality of the production.

What's on the DVD?

Tutorials include Electric Speed Controller programming, propellor theory, electrical terms and calculations, and power system monitoring and optimizing with a Watt meter. Also covered in detail are lithium polymer and lithium ion battery charging strategies, cell balancing, monitoring, safety and techniques to make your packs last longer.

A detailed soldering clinic will teach you how to properly solder various high-amp connectors to motors, ESC's and batteries. Other tutorials cover electricity basics, propellor balancing, and tips on running separate Battery Eliminator Circuits with 2.4 ghz. radio systems.

I've distilled into easy to understand chapters the information needed to pick the right gear, keep it working within it's rated loads, and to safely operate a brushless power system without frying components. If you're already a super pro e-glider user, you may not find the training DVD useful, but everyone else should find it very educational.

Watch the trailer and preview below (720p too!) and visit the web page for more information and buy it online:

The DVD is $24.95, but can be purchased for less with our Custom 2, 3, and 5 DVD packs. Paypal and Visa/MC accepted.

Thanks for all of your support.

Let me know which diagrams would help you, and I will see if I can get them to you.

Giving out the program's artwork is not usually my policy, but if can help you out I will make an acception.

I may be doing an e-book version later as I figure out this new technology.

I love the E-book idea. I think those of us with Ipads could use this in the Field..

Have you thought about putting your Videos onto Itunes ? for download ?

I will offer downloads as soon as some service offers this service for small video producers at a price level that allows profit. Itunes is not small guy friendly.

If anyone knows of an online service I have not heard off and that can have 1-2 hour downloads, let me know!

Paul Naton,

You have done some wonderful work for the benefit of modelers and for your business hopefully profitable results.

I just wish to bring your attention to something in your post #1.

I see (read) Electricity Basics where it is written _ _ _
Volts x Amps = Work Done

Actually Volts x Amps = Power

Power is the rate at which work is being done.
It is entirely possible to have more power and not do more work. It depends on the time the power is being used.

Work is Force x Distance.

Volts is a force but Amps is an intensity, not a distance.

Perhaps we have studied different electrical physics .

Paul, thanks for the offer; however, I thought the slides (which make up the majority of the video) must have been produced via a "power point" type program, and would be readily accessable via email. I didn't realize that they would be considered "artwork."

Each diagram or slide is a large custom designed jpeg image designed by me and integrated into the editing software in HD resolution.

Hence, the images are the artwork for the video, and not data designed in Powerpoint type programs.

Looks to be your usual top notch quality, Paul!

I just ordered the Electric Sailplane Clinic DVD 30 minutes ago!

Love your stuff, you need an updated SCALE AEROTOW DVD, how about coming back to JR Aerotow this year?
