Your manual describes me and the problems I was having perfectly, and I'm amazed how simple you've made the solutions. My confidence and flying at the club field has vastly improved.
I am very happy to inform you that the techniques described in your manual have been of great help to me. So much so, I am now able to land my airplane perfectly almost every time and I am much more confident taking my plane to the flying field.

These books are awesome! If a person wants to learn to fly, the best thing he can do is get these books.

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.
Your Manual has provided me with the methods to make productive use of my simulator. I expect that when I fly, I will know exactly what I need to do without giving it much thought, and that is what I'm aiming for.
I found your manuals enormously helpful. I can now land on the runway every time.
Dave Scott is a rare find, a teacher who can write and draw. He has used his talents to create a series of books on RC flying for all time. Every page has descriptive drawings of the very best sort covering the key details of RC flight that both new and experienced pilots have been looking for. There is simply no other source that I have ever seen to match it.

I get comments all the time from people that have used your techniques saying how much they’ve helped them. They say that so many things never really made sense, but after your explanations, they now make perfect sense.

Dave Scott is a gifted individual. His RC instructional books are great. He has techniques that are time tested and very user friendly.

Every time I read your books I discover something that I wish someone had told me 10 years ago. My flying would have been a great deal better with just a couple of these hints.
Your manuals are packed with invaluable information that I could find no where else. The DAS System has helped me greatly and I now look forward to entering my practice flights fully knowing what to expect.
Your work is becoming the National
Standard to resolve airfield arguments. I honestly recommend your manuals to all that fly R.C..
Your volume of work represents a fantastically insightful instructive tool that no pilot should be without.
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 certainly have not found any other learn to fly books (or anything else) that incorporates learning to fly into a step by step system. I now feel prepared to enter my flights with a plan.
David, you are 100% on target. By following the lessons in the book, I now have much more confidence controlling my airplane in any attitude, and for the first time I feel like I'm controlling the airplane versus it controlling me.
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.
The first flight after reading the manual was "the most comfortable" flight that I ever had. I was controlling the bird and staying in front of it!
I just received your training manual and I can't put it down. This is excellent!!! It is just what I need to get me off the plateau I'm stuck on.
I made more progress in the 10 months applying your sport aerobatics system than I had in the previous 5 years.
Your points are great. Especially the 'Bump' and the 'Procedure Turn'. Now I know why I've had so many crashes.
I've flown three times since I received the books and have improved every time. Excellent advice, clear - concise information, great illustrations, all presented in an easy to reference, easy to understand manual. A home run!
I have found the manual very useful, and helpful. 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.
The manual is written in a concise and logical way that builds on each day's accomplishments.....the 'Crawl, Walk, Run' approach to R/C flying.
If more people started using your books people would be talking about making progress instead of all the talk about crashing.
The illustrations are great and the way you have broken down the lessons logically makes the information easy to apply in the air. Anyone who wants to learn to fly the right way needs to read your books.
I had been flying for about 6 years and just not progressing the way I felt I should have. My flying has progressed leaps and bounds with all that your books have taught me.
The steps in your book really helped my turns, The 1, 2, 3 and 4, 5, 6 finally gave me something solid to go by, and that's when I started to make progress. Now I land on the runway all the time, without your book I might have quit.
