Hints - on lots of things

LINKS - and HINTS on SEARCHING THE WEB

SUMMARY/COMMENT

Some links to get you started - you will very quickly have your own list of favourites. I have deliberately NOT included all the supplier sites as you can find them via the magazines. (If I try to put them all in and keep them up to date I'll never get to fly!!)

Do the homework yourself and you'll be surprised with what you turn up.

A very small number of local supplier sites will be included because their website is particularly informative and/or they are hard to find otherwise

 

------------------------------------------

For electric Flight stuff, check out Electric Flight in Australia

------------------------------------------

This site has more links than you can shake a stick at!! Alan's Hobby Web Links

------------------------------------------

I could give you every link I've ever found - but I'd rather be flying than constantly updating them - so instead check out DOZENS of sites via Tower Hobbies

www.towerhobbies.com/rcwair.html

They've got them categorised, and many of these will have links of their own.

------------------------------------------

 

To find Australian hobby shops and their websites

1 - Buy a couple of the local magazines and check out the adverts and suppliers lists.

2 - Look at the Yellow Pages under HOBBIES, or do this on the net by going to

www.yellowpages.com.au

and searching on

Hobbies & Model Construction Supplies--Retail

searching on ALL locations in your state - then try other states

------------------------------------------

SEARCH HINTS

Using your favourite Search engine (mine is www.profusion.com where I choose the Advanced option and can use multiple search engines - and choose the "[open window]" function whenever I click on what I want to see).

Do searches on any of:

Supernova 250S

If you own a Supernova 250s - this is an abloutely BRILLIANT flowchart showing how it works.

Also note that to charge Nicads at 2c, set the capacity to twice the actual capacity of the battery, in order to over-ride the 1c limit in the device

I was impressed by the links on the NZMAA website - dozens of them including International Frequency info. Check out:

(Well that's about it for links for me, YOU may have time to sit at the computer gazing at facinating sites - but I've got to stop building this site and start building and flying some planes!!)
