Introduction to F3A
« on: 17, October 2013, 11:54:46 PM »
If you are interested in precision aerobatics, wonder how to set up a plane for F3A and want to get some tips on crosswind flying, snaps, spins etc - Andrew Jesky's Precision Flight DVD I thought is a really good introduction with some tips going beyond beginner level.
 
First half of the DVD is basically setting up a practice plane, and second half puts across some interesting points in terms of F3A style flying, positioning for the judges etc. http://store.higherplaneproductions.com/ajvol3dv3.html
Kind Regards
Gerhard

Just managed to get my copy of Andrew Jesky's DVD.  Interesting to see him putting the Oriris together and the discussion about the Osiris and Spark.  The really good bit was watching him fly various manoeuvres with the tranny in the bottom right hand corner of the screen so you could see what he was doing.  He's a dab hand at switching rates on his aileron for snaps and on elevator and rudder prior to spins.  Lots of food for thought there.

Hello Roy,
According to their facebook site it looks like they have closed down which is a real shame. I got the DVD directly from them and don't know where else to get one, hopefully you can still somehow get hold of a copy.
Best wishes
Gerhard

Alternatively a copy I could, err, copy, I would be quite willing to make as many copies as required if they aren't available to buy anywhere, suggestions where to send some money though would be good I don't intend to steal copyright but if it isn't for sale anywhere then it's a waste of good work.
