The "Call-Back" Show

In this 83rd show, we do a little "call-back" to some older material that we have some updates for (otherwise, not a whole lot going on LOL). I was able to get my Millennium RC MicroSSX finished and maidened, so I do a quick review of my experience with this cool little (and I MEAN little) plane.

Some CNC Discovery

Just like clock-work, we're back with an 80th installment this week, but alas, it's just been so stinkin' hot that we just don't have a lot of RC talk this week. If you know us, though, you'll know that both Dorsal and I are really into CNC machines to support our respective RC 'habits'. I spent some significant time in the workshop on a mission to discover more about these great machines and how they operate. Tune in as we explain the "Right-Hand Rule", as well as how I suggest that the PhlatScript might be improved for use with the upcoming PhlatPrinter MK3 machine and other such Overhead-Gantry systems.

We also have some other stuff, including a visit from the RCadvisor and also some great pictures of a listener's completed e-QSC! Have you completed your e-QSC from this summer's Scratch-build Club? If so, get your pics to me by August 15th so that you can be eligible to win a free power system!!

WMParkFlyers

We're back this week for our 79th show, and this time we've got a guest in the workshop - Mr. Greg Markley from WMParkFlyers. During our visit with Greg, we get a little insight as to how he's creating and painting the kits he sells, as well as some new kits that will be coming soon to his site.
