Trying something a little new here today. As many know, but not all, I have a YouTube channel and sometimes make RC/heli related video's that apply to specific RC topics.
In some instances, I make a video specifically to help augment the information on one of my web pages.

Any time I put up an RC related video on my YT channel, I'll likely post a blog on my site about it so those of you who are not subscribed to my channel, but are subscribed to my blog, will get the notification :)
Feel free to let me know if you think you will find this extra video notification helpful, or if you think it's a stupid idea.

As my many loyal visitors & customers will see, I'm in the process of updating my website design to a fresh, responsive layout.
Navigation is now in a horizontal drop-down format or in a simple "menu" drop-down when viewed on smaller mobile screens.
Please bear with me as I transition the site over the next few weeks. There are bound to be some issues with rendering, colors, and text sizes, but I hope it won't be too much of an annoyance as I get these issues sorted out.
And by all means, don't hesitate to contact me to tell me what you think of the new design or any issues you may have with it.
Thanks to my many visitors over the past decade. You are all what make this site possible, and I hope this new responsive design will take us through the next decade of "RC Helicopter Fun".
Lets look at several nitro RC helicopter starting methods, both in how the engine is tuned over, and how the glow plug is powered up.
