what about a Faq for us newbies, I have only recently got into the sport and have found that when it came to purchasing equipment it was a total minefield, I was forever emailing sellers on ebay to ask such things as does it have high or low hang points etc, I did not know a good brand from a rubbish one, it took a lot of searching and questions to members of this forum (thanks francis and co). it would be good to have a listing of the most popular engines, wings etc with some info on each listing things like type of hang points, suitability for newbies etc, plus some sort of pricing guide.

i like that its a good idea as it has cost me a fortune tryin to find somethin right i bought some dinasaur thing then rebuilt it flew it once it was never suitable for me or anyone really , i up to now in twelve month had five wings fair enough trashed one or two in hedges high winds ground handling and mucking around, but just having the list of what to buy and what not to would have been a great help so yes good stuff

A Page tabbed from the top, as per tip to tip, air law, navigation... and so on that people can submit things to?
