Hey everyone,
Started working on my site that I had only started a few months ago. I will be keeping adding to it and refining it. It would mean a great deal to me if you could check it out and let me know what you think of it and if you have any suggestions of constructive criticism please let me know. Thank you in advance!

First off get off of tripod, it sucks and alot of people won't even go to your site on principle with that place.
Next: layout, ditch the little currency sign logo, it has nothing to do with RC heli's, same with your other graphics it has a very template feel (which I assume it is). Third organization of information, for example on the tips page why is the tip in twice, in two seperate columns in diffrent size fonts? Same with the photo gallery, why are the pictures all diffrent sizes and shapes? Standardize the layout a bit and it will look less cluttered.

Next, I'm not sure how applicable this will be on a tripod site, but looking at your code there are a bunch of 'unussual' coding constructs (such as div's for a li, :eek.

Finally:

yeah it is still in the designing and cleaning up and organization stages, thanks for the suggestions though, oh also on the layout design, it was either the little currency thing or flowers or some fairy junk like that, so i chose the best possible one that i could from the ones i had to choose from, i will go back and see if i can choose a different one. i will resize the pics and get them all the same, and get some of the information entered twice etc etc bugs worked out.

You are off to a good start, Billy.
Just keep it simple. No flash please.
And keep an eye on graphic/pictures file sizes.
Keep it dialup friendly. Some of us are still on it along with non HH gyros.
Remember content is king and flashie presentation comes somewhere further down the line.
