    Search is a great feature and I highly recommend it. But never be afraid to post a question. It keeps this site active and helps others. Just think how many people may have learned of the Learning Center because of your post. If people only posted questions that had never been asked, this site would die.

    YouTube has some videos of clipping wings that are pretty cool as well.
