Hello.

I'm a newbie to helicopters, and I'm pretty confused sometimes (no, most of the time) due to many of the "lingo" talk in this forum, I therefore wonder if anyone know of a thread, post or other website with general information about how a helicopter actually works, and preferably a little explanation about what actually is called what.

I am currently hovering around in my living room with a Lama v4 and I would love to try and tweak it a bit and get comfortable with that before throwing myself into bigger and more sophisticated models. And my main obstacle is that i need a "cheat sheet" for the technical heli-lingo.

Probably the best way to go about it would be to get Rays heli manual,(google it) When i started years ago it explained everything in detail, almost to much but makes for good reading. Also theres a mag MHT thats real tec oriented.
