Mastering Motors

Hi Andrew, I ordered a few guides from you, and I have really enjoyed reading them. Reading a well organized and thought out presentation is so much more enjoyable than searching for bits and pieces of information over the internet.
Tony N., Tennessee, USA.

This series of guides is awesome! As a previous customer of Gibbs Guides I knew the quality and value for money would be outstanding. Even so, I am amazed - you have really excelled yourself this time, Andrew!
David Johnson, AZ, USA.

A high quality guide that’s a definite must-have for any electric modeller. I am recommending this guide to all my modelling friends.
Chris Williams, Wolverhampton, UK.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this guide and have learned so much from it.

More Than Motors

I wish your books had been available when I started electric modeling in 2003. Your excellent power systems guides have filled in many gaps in my knowledge.
Peter Whittle, Canada.

I am part way through reading the second of your guides and I have to write and tell you its as good as the first one. I honestly never felt I would understand electrics, yet you make it seem so easy even for an older modeller like me.
Patrick Goodhew

Andrew, your Electric Power System series has opened many doors for me - at last I now understand what motors are all about. Thank you for these incredible guides.

Power System Solutions

I think that your tome will be of infinite value to all in our hobby and especially to new recruits.
Chris Golds, UK.

This guide has been very helpful indeed in helping me to choose a power system for my latest model. All my questions about the ESC, motor, battery, propeller, wiring etc were answered. I showed your guide to my local model shop and I had a hard time getting it back from them!
Derek Smith, Perth, Australia.

An outstandingly useful guide. It should cost a lot more than you are asking.
Gordon Weiss, CA, USA

Your guides are the best investment I ever spent on modelling. Unbelievably good. .... these guides are superb.
