Park Flying 1-2-3D manual
Featuring the accelerated flight training techniques developed during the instruction of thousands of pilots at 1st RC Flight School, this book guides flyers step by step through each phase of becoming a better pilot with greater efficiency.
Concise lessons and hundreds of illustrations with matching control stick diagrams make learning easy and fun. Special features help pilots bypass common mistakes and enhance practice effectiveness by focusing the pilot’s attention on controlling what the airplane does instead of reacting to it.
Section 1, Learning to Fly highlights the essential planning and control techniques required to perform the four major phases of solo flight: Takeoff, trimming, turns and maneuvering (with and without ailerons), and landing.
Section 2, Basic Aerobatics guides flyers through the 10 aerobatic maneuvers that guarantee a more fun and exciting RC flying experience for years to come.
Section 3, 3D Stunt Flying details the specialized airplane and control setups necessary to fly 3D, together with the flying techniques required to accomplish more than a dozen thrilling 3D stunts.
- Park Flying 1-2-3D & One Week to Solo are great. I used to fly reacting to the plane, but now I am controlling the plane using instructions in your books. I have made many improvements since I started using your books.Ross Schultz. Iron Ridge, WIHaving read the park fly manual and practiced the techniques therein on a simulator, my actual model flying has improved greatly. The manual is the best investment I have ever made. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.Ron DePrez. Goshen, KYReally appreciate the manual. I’m seeing immediate improvements and a heightened level of enjoyment. The methodical way you isolate where my control inputs need to be is awesome. Your books have helped me identify patterns of bad habits and correct them.Dave Edwards. Quincy, MA
- This manual is a great way to gain the knowledge to learn without crashing. It is well detailed and each lesson is supported with excellent illustrations. Control inputs are highlighted so you can practice before flying. Armed with this manual your flight experiences will be more rewarding.Rick Bell. ILThe book has been invaluable in helping me understand the principles I need to know to fly 3D. Whereas I could not do any 3D maneuvers before, I can now hover and I'm getting better at several high alpha maneuvers. Simply amazing!Rusty Billings. Lakewood, WIDave Scott's book is precise, well illustrated and fun. It teaches you to fly the plane pro-actively and not react to every deviation. You will love this book and quickly benefit from the techniques, versus learning the wrong way and practicing bad habits. Learn right the first time!Tom Arnold. New Holland, OH
- Park Flying 1-2-3D would be a great refresher on good technique for any level pilot. It offers the best explanations of rates, mixes, and radio programming I have ever seen. Detailed graphics help explain everything without any guessing. A great source of knowledge!Kevin Brice. Milwaukee, WIDave Scott takes his full scale knowledge, combines it with his RC skills, and writes a masterpiece. The book helps pilots see the forest through the trees and quickly learn what would take years to come by on your own.Pride Grimm. High Point, NCThe book is brilliant. I wish I had them when I started as I would have understood what I was doing wrong. The book makes things very simple to understand and progress at a very steady rate.Stephen Colclough. Queensland, Australia
- 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.Dick Talley. Hudson, OHPark Flying 1-2-3D does a great job building on the maneuvers as you progress. I liked that it is spiral bound, making it easy to lay open in front of you when practicing on a simulator. I would not hesitate to recommend the manual to anyone who wishes to become a better R/C pilot.RCGroups.com ReviewYour "One Week to Solo" and "Park Flyer 1-2-3D" manuals are excellent. Several pilots in our club have expressed, on many occasions, how proficient I am for a new pilot. I give the credit to the material found in your manuals. They are simply the best!Murray Wheten.
