This thread (and forum of course) is what it's all about, a community of very helpfull people, working together.

I went into IC R/C just under 2 years ago. I finished building my Tutor 40 beginners plane.

I contacted the chairman of my local Club, enquiring about joining and of course I informed him I was a beginner, he told me they were not taking on beginners. I live in a part of the UK where there aren't many clubs.

then I put my fingers in the engine propeller, 1/8 th inch deeper & 3 fingers would have been gone. That put me off untill 2 months ago when I thought I'd go electric and I've been getting myself organised.

I specifically got myself a simulator so I could learn as much as possible from it so that in the event I have to go it alone I'l understand the basics. Having said that, I'll be putting an advertisement in a newspaper enquiring if there's someone not far away would he take me for a few hours, and I'll pay him.

I'm getting back into RC heli-ng after a 12+ Year break (lol)
I only had about 2 lessons way back then and the chap charged me 13 per hour! Approx ($28!)
Im getting back into it hopefully and dont think I'll bother with an Instructor.
Bought my G3 and will put in plenty of practise on that.

Guys,
I've asked to have this made a sticky. I think the posts should only be possible instructor info. Not unrelated BS!

I'm a noob and could use some help. I don't really want to join a club mainly because the nearest one to my house is an hour away.I just purchased a T-Hawk and have flown it few times. Some times with success and other times not so good. If there is anyone who lives near Waxhaw NC area and would be willing to help me out I would really appreciate it. Just pm me.

Need an instructor: St Louis area- Highland IL - 30 miles East

All:

At E-fest I met a fine fellow and talked him through Slow Stick Construction via Email. Now he needs an instructor and he managed to stick it in a tree top before looking for an instructor locally If you are experienced and in this general area contact me and I'll provide his contact info.

Thanks.
