1st RC Flight school manuals
Pros: Excellent Information, very well written. Cons: Shows you how much you don't know.

The Intermediate manual is awesome! I can't put it down. The controlling the airplane versus reacting methodology is very clear and super interesting. I'm amazed to find out how much more a person needs to know to fly an airplane well. I will contact you to sign up to take the aerobatics course next year.

An important part of being a "Controller" is identifying which corrections need to be made ahead of time. This is the heart of the DAS (David A. Scott) system in his manuals, and used at the flight school.

I’ve been recommending your books to our club members. Our chief instructor is nuts about your books and taught his two nephews to fly already using your methods and more are in the pipeline, they all love your way of doing things. I used your set up to get a few squirrely planes flying right, less throw and less expo does wonders.

Thank you for sending the 4 books so promptly. Halfway though the "One Week to Solo" I realized that the cost of the 4 books I bought had been returned to me in spades. Amazing writing and drafting, like a whole new world just opened up. Curtis Pitts was my friend and you and he have thought alike and believe me, there are very, very few who can or will do that.

I wanted to say thanks for the manuals which I received promptly. They are great. Very well written and thought out. I didn't realize how much I didn't know or wasn't 100% clear on. I have a new appreciation for precision and flying each flight with a purpose. This will all help immensely instructing others.
You asked for my evaluation of your new book and all I can say is it's excellent and I wouldn't change a thing. I tell people that if they read these books they'll win their class!

I just wanted to let you know how excellent and useful your Flight Manuals are. We have some pilots in our club with over 40 years experience. They have expressed, on many occasions, how proficient I am for a new pilot. I give most of the credit to the material found in your manuals. They are simply the best source of information I have come across! Thank you so much!
Murray Wheten. Dartmouth, CAN I recently purchased a copy of your "Primary Flight Training" Manual. It is the best, by far, explanation of R/C that I have come across. I recently ordered your basic aerobatics manual and look forward to receiving more excellent instruction.

The DAS System is laid out in a step by step format that is easy to follow. It helped me keep track of my progress until I put it all together and soloed without any trouble.

These books are awesome! If a person wants to learn to fly right, the best thing he can do is get these books.
Al's Hobby Shop. Elmhurst, IL
The bottom line for any service is did you get your moneys worth and was it worth the time? The answer to both is definitely yes. I will recommend the school to new students. I would also say buying the flight book in advance was a great help. I think all beginners should study this book so they have an idea what they are trying to do when on the buddy box.
John O'Keefe. Springfield, IL
If my progress after reading the first section of the manual is an indication of things to come (and I believe it is), my future looks brighter than at any time since I started it four years ago. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of dollars I have invested in this hobby, the few dollars I spent last week on your books may be the best money I ever spent. These manuals may literally save the hobby for me.
Bill Rose. Independence, MO
Dave I just wanted to let you know the manual is great. I have found it very useful, and helpful. I had an experienced flyer help me out with the first few flights. What was amazing was the things I picked up from your manual and described to him have changed the way he now flies. If a person never did anything else when learning to fly R/C but read your manual it would be the best thing they ever did.
Carl Anderson. Wauseon, OH
My classmate had the advantage of using your training manual info on his flight simulator prior to our classes and his advantage over me at the school was obvious.
Tony Biach. Silver Cliff, WI
The manual is written in a concise and logical way that builds on each day's accomplishments.....your 'Crawl, Walk, Run' approach to R/C flying.
