Welcome to my humble website RC Airplane World, an online guide to getting started in the thrilling and addictive hobby of radio control flying.
I started creating RC Airplane World back in 2002, with two intentions in mind - to introduce people to this hobby that has been in my blood for as long as I can remember, and to try and make a little beer money on the side
Essentially there are three ways this website produces a little income for me:
- Hosting adverts.
- Ebook sales.
- Amazon affiliate income.
So in the interests of transparency, here is a little explanation of each...
The adverts you see around the site are hosted by Mediavine, and I get a few cents per ad impression - not per click. So, I earn a little money depending on how many ads are published on my site at any given time.
The ebook sales can be split in to two groups - the sales of the two "Beginner's Guide" ebooks, and some rc helicopter ebooks which I sell as an affiliate of rchelicopterfun.com.
The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Airplanes was written by myself solely, and the Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Helicopters was written as a joint venture with John Salt of rchelicopterfun.com. As the author, I receive all the money from sales of those ebooks.
As an affiliate of John's, I receive a percentage of any helicopter books of his I sell through my site. These ebooks can be seen on the heli ebooks page, oddly enough.
Which brings us to the affiliate income. Throughout RC Airplane World you'll see various product links; links to rc aircraft or accessories that I can recommend to you, or I think are worth having.
All the product links will take you through to Amazon - either Amazon USA or Amazon UK, depending on which country you are in. These links are embedded with my affiliate ID, so if you go ahead and make a purchase having clicked on a product link within my site, I will make a few bucks. Simply put, as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
Does this affect you at all? Absolutely not! Clicking on a product link within my website will make no difference to you whatsoever, and it certainly won't cost you a single penny! Neither will clicking on an advert within the website.
