1. "Programming the Futaba Super 7 for Aircraft and Sailplanes"

The booksThis 90-page US-Letter (approx A4) sized soft-bound book is a very introduction to the Super 7.

There is a section devoted to almost every conceivable model configuration for power and gliding. The diagrams are based on the ones in the Futaba manual, but the text is greatly expanded. Several hints and tricks are included.

If the Super 7 is your first computer set, then this is very definitely an worthwhile buy. For more experienced flyers too, there are several useful nuggets of information.

2. "Guide to Computer Radio Control Systems"

The book provides a comprehensive background while it does aim to be general, it does not shy from referring to specific manufacturers to illustrate differences.
