Default Who makes the best video tutorials?

I'm pretty much still a beginner, having DCS for at most about 7 months or so, and what I'm looking for is someone who has exceptional teaching talent; someone who can put him/her self into the shoes of a beginner and draw good conceptual pictures, rather than relying on pure rote memorization of details presented rapid-fire.. Most of the tutorials seem like they assume at least a moderate amount of pre-existing technical proficiency, and some just race through the systems and buttons without really explaining much. I want to get a rough idea of the basics this way before delving into the manuals or Chucks guides from cover to cover, which for me at least will make the written material more readable & absorbable.

You could combine the training missions of each module with a youtube search sorted by popularity or so.

Is there is a specific aircraft you are interested in? we may be able to give a better answer if you can narrow it down.

Often it comes down to personal learning style. for the Frogfoot, I recommend this series of videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZT878Rylhw

For something super specific like Case 1 recovery in the Hornet, Jabbers video is awesome https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lm-M3VUy-_I

Also get on multiplayer and ask around there are tons of people that will give you one on one help if you just ask

Check out the subreddit Hoggit
They have a Tuesday night Noob event each week, or just hop on 104th or one of the other big servers, get on the voice comms and ask.

Thanks! Well, I went ahead and bought all the modules (This stuff is incredible), but as much as I love playing with the Harrier and the Hornet, I should probably start with the A10C for numerous reasons.

You should. The A-10C is great. It's also complete and has been around a long time so all the tricks to it can be found. The others are still very incomplete.

I have numerous 5-ish minute tutorials on youtube, but the A-10 isn't among them.
