Here are a few worthy and interesting resources that I've found on my cyber-travels...
Servo database - RC servo specifications and reviews, very handy for comparing different servos when trying to decide which to use.
Sky Eye 2 - great personal website about aerial photography, by Dave Blandford (UK).
RC Helicopter Fun - excellent personal site about RC helicopters of all kinds, one of the better sites out there. The author, John Salt, has many years experience flying rc helis, including gas turbine, and he's a good friend of mine who I co-wrote The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC helicopters with. Top bloke ;-)
RC Groups - the biggest and longest standing rc forum on the web, with a place for every imaginable rc flying related question.
RC Universe - the second biggest with a good community feel to it. Plenty of decent product reviews here.
RCM&E forum - actually it's called the ModelFlying.co.uk forum, but the site is the online home of the popular RCM&E magazine in the UK. Excellent forum with friendly and helpful members!
