  • Great advice, thanks a lot. I love drones and everything related to them. I love reading literature and books about drones, how to design them and the like. At the moment I read more fiction and I really like it. On the site I found out about the book Lamb to The Slaughter, which simply captivated me. This is a story by Ronald Dahl. it's about two people who love each other, but love is one-sided.

      +1. Can't get it without a kindle which I do not have and do not wish to have.

      A PDF version would be the simplest way.

  • Very useful book. I have been browsing this forum and others for a while now, but some things still made no sense for me and I could not find one place that explained things in a simple language. This is very helpful and thank you for making it available for free.
