If I didn't know how to do a fan already, I don't think this would be very useful. You need to go into much more detail about almost everything. Would probably help someone get a rough idea of what to do I guess.

I know how to do these fans already but find the written descriptions very confusing. 

I'd recommend more time spent on the videos and less on the writing.

I like the videos though - good angles :)

A few years ago, that was called C fan, not AC fan. What did i miss, what does that "A" stand for?

Anti clockwise = AC

I'm having a real problem with these  :-|
Almost immediately as i begin the fan the diabolo's go wobbly and tilt until they completely get in a tangle and slow up completely  :'(

How can i fix this?

Sounds like 2 problems, your technique isn't quite there yet, and also that your diabolos don't seem to be spinning fast enough.

I thought a C fan has always been a clockwise fan and AC has always been anti clockwise.

What's S? Speeder fan?

I think that the S fan supposedly looks like an S shape from the side

S-fan = the string goes like an 'S' around the diabolos

C-fan = the string goes like a 'C' around the diabolos, clockvise
AC-fan = the string goes like a 'C' around the diabolos, anti-clockvise

:)

^Is the clockwise/anticlockwise from the performer's or observer's view?

Your string is probably rubbing viciously on one side of the cup during the entry, which causes the diabolo to tilt. More speed to the diabolo will help slightly, but the best is to figure out why (and where) the diabolo tilts and work to fix that problem. :)
