I just found out that Ray Hostetler's new 3 DVD set is available through MTA Hobbies and probably other dealers was well. I found information on his web site at <http://rayshelitech.com/osCommerce/> Looks like the're out just in time for the holidays. Seems like a good stocking stuffer!

Looks like the series is centered around the Raptor 50 and the JR9303. I'm sure that it's applicable to all beginners through advanced heli pilots, but it appeals to me personally as I have a Rappy 50 and 9303.

I wonder if he shows strapping a heli to a ladder to adjust the engine with his little chrome dome helmet on?

I really doubt it! But I'll bet you'll be the first to know if it's in there. You could always go to his web site and ask him.

I haven't had a chance to see them yet. They are shipping, so I assume that someone will be able write a short review. I'm told that it's professionally done and not a home video. Can't really comment til I see them.
Volume 1 is on transmitter theory and setup. Based on the JR 9303 (1hr and 43min)
Volume 2 is on helicopter bench setup. Based on the Raptor 50 (1hr and 7min)
Volume 3 is on helicopter flight trimming. Also based on the Raptor 50 (55 min)
That's all I know at this time.

I tried to order a set off that site but it wouldn't work. Seems there may be some technical problems.

Web Site
Does anybody have Ray's email. His site's shopping systems is AFU.
His FAQ says to contact him if there are web site problems, however I can't find the "contact" page on the site.

The 9303 DVD should help you quite a bit with the theory. The JR is much different from the 9chp, but you should be able to program your Futaba based on the info provided. Let us know what you think after reviewing it and how you think it applies to the 9chp. Does it help or not?
