    By russ19 This book is fantastic. I began flying RC helicopters nine months ago. It is an extremely difficult and challenging hobby. It requires a tremendous amount of time practicing to develope the fine motor skills and muscle memory necessary for basic flight. It also requires a lot of knowledge about building, setting up, and maintaining the helicopters. On top of that programming the computerized transmitter is yet another topic to master. This is a hobby that punishes slight mistakes and missing knowledge with sudden and expensive crashes, yet until now a comprehensive book about it didn't exist. This wonderful ebook takes you step by step, complete with beautiful pictures, through the process of advancing in this hobby from where the first volume (FAQs 101) left off. It is written in a fast paced question and answer format that gently leads the reader down a carefully thought out pathway that supplies the essential information to get started the best way possible. Oh how I wish... More > that this book was available when I started. It would have saved the expense of numerous crashes and countless hours of tedious rebuilding. The book provides more knowledge in several hours of reading than I was able to obtain from months of laboriously studying the excellent helicopter forums. It makes a very complex hobby understandable and reasonable. I began reading the book thinking that it would be a nice review of what I already know as I have researched this hobby a lot but I learned many new pearls of wisdom that have been extremely helpful. If anyone is interested in this fascinating hobby this book is a must read. I highly recommend it.< Less
