Default Videos: MrMel's VBar 101 instruction videos

Hello everyone!

I have started to make a VBar 101 series where I will try to cover the gap between the official videos, the manual and all questions here on the forum.

It will be a deeper dive into the VBar world, to make sure you get the best out of your VBar.
This will include setup both if you using a preset and if you are setting up from scratch, to try to learn you how to do it correctly.

I will make a dedicated page for these videos later, but for now you have to go into my profile on YT

http://www.youtube.com/user/FredrikMelin72

I put up a page on my site with links to all videos here;
http://heli.dacsa.net/MrMelSite/VBar101.htm

PERHAPS around 5-10 of those stickies could be rewritten and merged into one READ ME FIRST sticky?

I don't like seeing so many. Really should be only 4 or 5 max (IMO)
