    Hi folks,

    Just getting started in what looks like a fantastically fun hobby :) Lots to read and watch and learn, and I've done a fair bit of that already.

    I'm just wondering...is there a newbie guide to terminology and descriptions of things relating to Phantom flight? For instance, I see terms like PMU and ESC and Wookong and NAZA-M and NAZA-2 being casually thrown about, and I have no idea what those are. Is there some kind of basic guide to Phantom terminology out there?

    Also, just as a suggestion in case a mod is reading this...speaking as a newbie, I think it'd be really helpful to have a "Newbie forum" on this site. As stickies, you could have the basic Phantom terminology guide (which I'm going to write, if there isn't one! lol), some guides on responsible flying, and so on.
