Default resources for noobs

I am fairly new to the hobby I started just over a year ago, I had dabbled a bit before that, but this last year I have got into it in a big way. I have learnt an awful lot and trawled countless websites and forums.
After many RTF's and scratchbuilds I am now flying fpv with a bixler 2, gliding with a DLG and I have just finished a scratch build hexcopter with gyro controlled camera gimbal and the thing I have noticed is there are many resources out there that beginners to the hobby have no idea about, for instance it took me a few weeks to find resources like this forum, flite test, RC groups, RC model reviews and many others.

With that in mind I have put this website together with the hope that this will help direct new people coming in to the hobby to places like this, where they can find answers to questions that my website didn't answer. Anyway have a look see what you think http://www.rcplanes4beginners.co.uk/

How about adding Wattflyer to your "A world of RC experts" page.

Good point tis done!
Sorry about that its been such a lot of work putting it together that I may have missed one or two good resources. It was only supposed to be a collection of links for people to use but it seemed to have escalated.
