sport aerobaticS manual
Dave Edwards. Quincy, MA Dave Scott takes his full scale knowledge, combines it with his RC skills, and writes a masterpiece. All the books in his series help pilots see the forest through the trees, and add a perspective that will take years to come by on your own. Why re-invent the wheel when you can take from his years of instruction, and build on it from there. Pros: Excellent Information, very well written. Cons: Shows you how much you don't know. Pride Grimm. High Point, NC The manuals are terrific!!! They are very informative and I especially like the detailed and intuitive illustrations. There are so many things that I was not aware that make so much sense the way you explain them. I have been flying for about 6 years and just not progressing the way I felt I should have. I have no doubt that my flying will progress leaps and bounds with all that your books have taught me. Glenn Kotch. Dave believes there are two basic types of flyers. Most club flyers are "Reactors" who watch what the airplane is doing and react to deviations. By definition, they are slightly behind the airplane. On the other hand, "Controllers" anticipate the appropriate corrections to prevent the deviation before it occurs. They are thinking ahead of the airplane. 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. Ken Weddell. Fremont, MI I can't tell you enough how great I've found your manual to be. Your manual describes me and the problems I was having perfectly, and I'm amazed how simple you've made the solutions. After practicing everything in your book on my simulator until it was automatic, my confidence and flying at the club field has vastly improved. Rusty Billings. Lakewood, WI I made more progress in the 10 months applying your sport aerobatics system than I had in the previous 5 years. Dan Hammon. Bountiful, UT I just had to tell you how impressed I am with your manuals. The quality and the content is great and I am so happy to have stumbled upon your site and ordered these books. I am certain that they will be put to good use. Based on what I have seen with your manuals, your school must be top notch. Bill Sneddon. Waretown, NJ I find your manual to be extremely well written and informative. I've learned several new ways to look at aerobatic maneuvers the next time I go to the field. That's the mark of an excellent article, in my opinion. Bob Lavey. I have a very positive impression of your school, through my experience judging some of your students in contests. Your students' performance is well above average for their experience. Much of that is the training they received from you. I've also reviewed the manuals from your school and was very pleased with the content. Ron Lockhart. AMA Aerobatics Director & Nats Champion It takes knowledge to learn without crashing. The 1st U.S. R/C Flight School manuals are a great way to gain that knowledge. Each manual is well detailed and explains each lesson with excellent illustrations. For each lesson, matching stick movements are highlighted so that you can practice before you take to the air. Armed with an instructor and these manuals, your flight experiences will be more rewarding. Rick Bell. Editor, Model Airplane News Your new book is excellent and I wouldn't change a thing. I tell people that if they read these books they'll win their class!

Well Dave you've done it again. The new Sport manual is great. You are a leader and I am proud to tell you that again. John Wall. Solon, IA I find the illustrations in most publications nothing more than pretty pictures with absolutely no stick positioning information - no real help. So I would like to commend you on your approach at publishing your manual. I have not seen anything that is comparable. Bryan Smith. Houston, TX Your books are the best kept secret in R/C. I don't think you could keep them on the shelf when the true potential of professional flight training syllabuses are discovered. Then people will be talking about making progress instead of all the talk about crashing. Woodie Woods. Algonquin, IL Your sport aerobatic manual is packed with invaluable information that I could find no where else. Previously I had been trying to learn new maneuvers with little idea of how they where performed and no idea what to expect. The DAS System has helped me greatly "see" how the maneuvers are constructed and flown. I now look forward to entering my practice flights fully knowing what to expect. You should be very proud of what you have put together. Robert Weller. Wausau, WI 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, OH I have been following the advice of other pilots at my club. However, I just couldn't get the maneuvers right, and worse yet I couldn't get ahead of my plane. I purchased the DAS SYSTEM of SPORT AEROBATIC FLIGHT. I couldn't believe this manual. It was talking about every area where I am/was having problems. 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 the plane and accomplishing some very nice half Cuban's (never knew the name before), loops, and rolls. A great big THANKS! Nicholas Scott. Tquila, GA A few weeks ago I attended your aerobatic course with another flyer. It seems both of us had purchased your training manual about the same time. However, my classmate had the advantage of using your training manual info on his flight simulator prior to our classes. His advantage over me at school was obvious. Tony Biach. Silver Cliff, WI I prepared to learn aerobatics by reading the Sport Aerobatics Flight Training manual. I appreciated the concise and logical way that it builds on each day's accomplishments.....your 'Crawl, Walk, Run' approach to R/C flying. Jeff Wallach. Dallas, TX
