Past reviews and build threads

An excellent suggestion from Umi Ryuzuki is to compile a list of threads which give some detail to follow-on builders.

If anyone has found a particular thread of value or interest, please let me know by Private Message, or post a reply giving the Address of the first post in the series plus a line or two of what it is about.

This will remain as a 'Sticky' at the top of Scale Boats.

Thanks Aimee

Tony

FCC R/C Rule link

Here's a link to the FCC rules for personal radio, which includes R/C models. The R/C rules are sections 95.201 thru 95.401. R/C Rule 7 (Section 95.207) is titled "On what channel may I operate". I believe the Canadian rules are similar to those in the U.S.
