"Thanks for the rapid delivery on the books, got 'em several days back. The book is GREAT! Definitely worth the price, anyone with an 8U would be crazy not to invest the small price to get this valuable reference source. My buddies, who now have their own copies, agree with me! The 8U does a lot more than is shown in the Futaba manual. You obviously put a lot of research and work into this book, and I am grateful. "
--Al Clark

"Your book paid for itself the first night that I used it."
--Charlie Basel
