Hi Everyone.

Hope you don't mind a bit of self promotion, but I hope all modellers will find this new site interesting. http://www.RCReference.com is a brand new RC index site which we have launched today and has the aim of featuring every Radio Control product in the world. So far our engine has nearly 3000 fixed wing models, 500 helis and ESC's and servos. I think it's a good start, but I am also aware we still have lots to do..

We will be working on motors, lipos, radio and engines over the next few months. Cars and boats will come later.

At this point we are mainly looking for some feedback. We are hoping the modelling community will contribute - It's kind of like a highly searchable, editable RC Wikipedia, and down the road we think it could simplify many of the complexities for new modellers and hopefully encourage more people into the hobby.

Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give us.

Best Regards

Hi Martin,

quite an undertaking, but looking great so far.

Cannot help on the Plane side, but on the helicopter side you also have some of the german manufacterers:

Thanks Guys.

It's great to get some input. We will get right on the ones you have mentioned next week.
Krill and CARF will be easy for our engine to index, will look into the Helis.

Helis are a problem generally to be honest as there are so many different combo versions of basically the same product.
I can feel sub-products coming on. Think I will need to get that sorted.

I spent almost a day trying to get my head round the Vario product range. They have something wrong there. Great products, but so badly confusing. This seems to the way in many cases. I suppose if it was easy someone else would of done it before.

Thanks again for the feedback.
Martin

PS. If you think of any more, please let me know.

If you would like HA to help in any way with your project let me know ;)
We could set up a designated section for your site within the forum.
Looks like this has legs and anything that helps and promotes the Sport is a good thing in my opinion!



Especially if people can source efficiently .

Hi Joe.

Yes Please - That would be awesome. :D
Any help you can offer us to get people involved would be great!

We would be able to provide High Alpha with some kind of free advertising in return.
We should have a partners section.

Thanks for seeing the value in the project!
Best Regards
Martin

I tried to register and login on the site but it didn't work sadly.

Seems like a good website though - shame
