Looking for Your Help

Looking for Your Help

I made an announcement at the club meeting and I’m also doing it for the people that were not there at the meeting that I am looking for a few people to help out with the website posting articles and pictures. I would prefer someone with knowledge of wordpress or maybe HTML but its not required. Or, someone with a lot more knowledge about RC planes and RC helicopters could just submit articles to me written with Microsoft Word or an email. We could start a “Tips and Tricks” section here on the site that members could use. Video tips would be even better. Also I think would be cool is some “build-a-longs” showing how you build your planes or helicopters or how you set up and check you CG. This might seem like petty stuff or common knowledge to most of you out there but there are a lot of new members that are new to this hobby and joined the club to learn from other club members, like I did 🙂   If you would like to help then just shoot me an email HERE and I will get back to ya as soon as I can. Thanks for your time everybody...
