If you are in this forum you may have questions about getting started in electric flight. This thread is a compilation of very helpful threads which can help you get started.

Before posting in this forum try doing a search. Your question may have already been answered. Need search help? click here!

The E-Zone is another source of good information on electric R/C planes and equipment. The E-Zone FAQ has recently been upgraded and is being updated all the time. Both are worth a look!

Have question about building? A real nice website to look at is Airfield Models. This website is loaded with information about tools, building materials, design theory and contains formulas, resources and references, which may give you some great ideas for your next project.
