Guide / Tutorial [Guides] I Finished my Flight Assist Off Beginner Series!

I'm so excited to be able to post this. Back in May, I posted the first video of some training that I use when training apprentices in Newton's Gambit. This Beginner Series, meant to be divided into five sections, has matured into an archive of training material which will be continued and grown upon as time goes on, well beyond its original scope. The beginner series itself, is comprised of more than two hours of exercises and conceptual lessons.

Since May, this series has been my heart and joy to work on.

Today, I uploaded the final video in the main beginner series. My hope is that this completed beginner series will...
  • Help those who are interested in learning more about FAOFF
  • Help demystify the art of FAOFF
  • Provide positive encouragement to those studying and using FAOFF
  • Provide a solid educational base for an archive of information regarding FAOFF that other commanders will build upon
Since I began this series, our group has grown in leaps and bounds and I have met so many wonderful people. Thank you so much to all those who I have met along the way and to those who have commented and watched for giving me the fire to continue its organization and production.

Great work! Look forward to trying these out. I’m just getting started with fa off after years of fa on and this looks really helpful.
 
Great stuff!

These videos are great. They are thoughtful and give you that I gotta try that! buzz.

Obviously the second one is the best (because I am in it - that's me at the end. :p )

Brilliant stuff

Nice!
Will definitely check these out. Ozram is quite a ways ahead of me in this department, and I need to close the gap :)
 
I am your subscriber since you did #1. It's excellent work! I haven't finished watching it, but i decided to take my bubble ship (DBE) and just do 100% FaOff (ok, except cargo scooping, how the hell is this possible?!).

Any plans for the future?

And you were amazing in it haha! Still my favorite time recording.

Cargo Scooping: Actually, the last exercise in the 5th video covers Cargo Scooping as a test for graduation. It uses the oxygen timer for the stock sidewinder (5 minutes) to make sure the scoop is done in time :D

For the future, I'm going to be doing a super FAOFF intro covering some of the things that Commanders should know coming into the first training video (how to turn off FAON, what it means and its implications, how to quiet your ship, etc). Then, I'm planning on moving onto more intermediate and advanced topics, hopefully bringing in some other Commanders to share their knowledge.

Seconded.
I reported the OP (with lavish praise).
Thank you very much! Looks like it's now in guides. Thank you again!

Haven't had a chance to watch these yet but I''ll get them onto my iPad for my daily commute asap. In the meantime, I've added a link to this from my sticky "Best of Forum" thread in the "Ship, weapon stat's, combat tips, etc" section.

Thank you so much Alec!!! That thread is a great resource!
