I think the episode that would be most applicable to you would be this one...

Agreed but in this episode they dont go into much detail about landing and takeoffs etc like they do in the current episode.

Good vids ...

Only have small comment though ... daft chat !! Watching the DH Vampire vid - a model that I would want ! ... the 'silly talk' at start spoilt it for me ... sorry ....

But keep up the vids ...

To others - I think FlyingMonkey ... why only add Horizon Hobby to the pile ? There are a lot of models out there that are not HK or HH ...
