welcome to the hobby. i looks like you are trying to save some money, but the "rc planes for dummies" is sold on this website but it is called the "scratchbuilders beginners guide."
i am just a satisfied advocate of the RCPowers franchise and only suggest that it can help you too. it may seem daunting at the start up cost to get into the air, but the guide was worth the money for me. it made it easier to spend my hard earned money wisely in the beginning while learning instead of buying nice RTF planes to only crash it, and you will have a few learning crashes. it is like learning to riding a motorcycle. it's not a matter of if you crash, it's when you crash. getting proper training from the beginning while help you avoid most of the pit falls and not discourage you because of the accidents.
welp, that is my two cents. good luck with the f35 and getting everything together.
Nothing said I had to crash
