Wings Across America

Last Thursday, I received the Wings Across America plane from Pilot #126 and I got to fly it with my fellow club members just before Dorsal and I got together for this week's show. You'll hear all about it in this 25th installment.

For this week's Steals Of The Week I share a great find with one of my favorite suppliers. ToddsModels has reduced the prices for their Spektrum AR6100 receivers. You'll need to be a Todds Team Member to see these low prices, so be sure to take the time to sign up for the free membership.

PhlatBoyZ Update - MKII's Are Shipping!

In this installment, Dorsal and I get our monthly update from the PhlatBoyZ. The MKII's are now shipping! I should be getting mine in the next week, or so, so look for my build review that will be upcoming.

Also, the Wings Across America 2008 plane is now in Texas. I expect to get my turn to fly it within the next week, or so, so maybe the next show will cover some of that action. For more information on this great project, you can visit the official website --> WAA-08

"Small" Talk And A New Machine

Do you have a trashed out Vapor sitting in the corner of your workshop? Do you have a Vapor that you now find "boring" and you're looking for something with a little more excitement? Well, then this is the show for you! Axon and 2DogRC have teamed up to bring you a plane to put that old Vapor brick back in service! There's also another option for your electronics package in the form of a Delta for some full contact combat fun!

Also, in this installment you'll hear all about a new overhead gantry, flatbed CNC that I will soon be building. With this machine I should be able to effectively bring my balsa designs to life without having to hand-cut anything!
