Engines for Models by Berkeley Models PDF

I bought this off of RC Groups and it is a neat book so I scanned it in. It is in PDF format and below is the google drive download link.

Hey, that’s really cool! There. Is some great information and timeless diagrams in there. Are you going to have Jacob expand our instruction sheet library to include books like this? I’ve scanned Ken Willard’s 8 easy things to do with 1/2 a Engines. I’d need some additional training on how to format 48 individual PDF pages into one long book like you’ve done to this one.

The Canon scanner I have has software that automatically creates PDFs. It asks to continue scanning pages until you click finish then builds the PDF. I scanned it 300 DPI color. Enough resolution so it can be zoomed in if needed.

Not sure how much drive space is left. Jacob mentioned he is already spreading the manual PDFs across multiple accounts.

He mentioned archive.org as a hosting site. I have a google drive account so I chose that route.

In acrobat reader if you right click in the screen you can select rotate clockwise and you can read it.

Jason_WI, excellent work.

I took your PDF and massaged it in imagemagick in Linux. Here it is with pages rotated, downloadable from my Google Drive:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1udSr6DvQr_90RFmzPM9zBIyMqk5Dk8Tz

It is now viewable without rotating pages.
