On Wednesday the 12th we're going to have a beginners setup class.
It'll be held at the Joslyn Senior Center in ESCONDIDO from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

It'll be hosted by the PRCF and SDRMC. Instructors this time will be Dickson Lopez (JR's team pilot), John Weaver and me. There'll be classes on all kind of subjects. I'll be doing mostly the electronics side.

It's an open invitation and people are encouraged to bring their helicopters for inspection or recommendations after the meeting. We hope with the upcoming flying season other areas in the country also start similar classes for beginners. We also invite experienced pilots to join us helping beginners.

We'll try to have these classes every second Wednesday of the month. We selected a north SD county location so it would make it more centric for people rom Orange county to come down too if they wanted. We also wanted this to become a way to socialize and get to know other heli pilots in your area.

Hope to see you there.

Augusto.

I don't think there will be any problems. We have several instructors and the place has been reserved for more than a month now and it's in their calendar too.

Augusto,

Wow! That's awesome man! I'd go if it were on a weekend. Escondido is too far for me to drive on a work night.

Hey IssaX I would like to have you over helping out with the class. Unfortunately I don't think the center has any openings during the weekends so we need to stay with second Wednesday of the month.

Feel free to bring books like Curtis' Q&A or Ray's.
We are going to have those at the class and you could mark the pages that interest you.

Dickson has to be at an operation from 4 pm to around 8 pm so he won't be able to attend. That leaves three out of four still plenty to do keep the show moving along.

Thank You Augusto and Dan!!

Great Class and free Pizza/Soda on top of it. Got some good info out of it. Looking forward to flying with you all at Johnson field one of these weekends.
Oh, also I want to thank the guy from Discount Hobby, I forgot his name?
Looking forward for the next class.

His name is John Weaver. I had a good time too! I'm glad I could help you with your gyro. I hope to see you at Palomar sometime!

Yeah we had a good time.
It's a shame they kicked us out at 9:15. We were starting to get into reviewing everyone's helicopter. The seminar took longer than we expected but having John Weaver's 25 years in helis teaching us really made it worth it for me.

I learned a bit more about exactly how the flybar works. That, and some more about digital servos. Even though I was an instructor, I still learned more than I was expecting. I've never met John before, it was fun.
