RC flying e-books
No, these aren't e-books that fly, but are a few recommended rc flying related e-books currently available.
Each contains a lot of good info on their respective topics, and I can personally recommend each one having read each one (and written a couple!) prior to promoting them. If you do buy any, just don't forget to keep using this website as well...
The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Airplanes, by Yours Truly, covers all the essential 'getting started' information that you need as a newcomer to flying radio control airplanes, and walks you step-by-step all the way from understanding RC systems and airplane controls, to choosing and buying your first rc plane, to your first flights. The book focuses on electric RTF planes but the fundamental topics are good for IC planes too!
The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Helicopters, also by Yours Truly. Complimenting the above e-book, this one has been co-written between myself and John Salt of www.rchelicopterfun.com. Taking you safely through the stages of learning to fly an rc helicopter, it's an essential read for anyone entering the radio control helicopter sector of RC flying Like the airplane guide, this e-book will save you time, money and aggravation.
Setup & Tips For Electric Collective Pitch RC Helicopters, by John Salt, is essential for anyone getting in to electric CP (Collective Pitch) rc helicopters. Focusing on, but not limited to, the E-flite Blade 400, this e-book will take you through the setup process for flying your 3D heli confidently as a trainer, as well as covering many other aspects of electric rc helicopter flying, including those inevitable 'heavy landings'!
120 & 140 Degree Swashplate Setup & Levelling, also by John Salt, follows on from the above e-book and takes you step-by-step to break down the potentially overwhelming procedure of swashplate setup on your 400 size helicopter. Highly recommended!
Getting the most out of your Blade mSR covers all the tips and tricks you need to know to take full advantage of this amazing little heli. Essential reading for anyone who's had one of these for Christmas!
How To Make RC Airplanes, by Carl Baer, is an excellent resource for anyone thinking of building an rc airplane from a kit. The book closely follows the construction of a fairly standard gas trainer from a kit, and is filled with tips, tricks and model building techniques. Modeling bench construction, work area organization and money saving advice is all offered.
I'd recommend this eBook to any aeromodeller, regardless of age and experience.
