SEFF 2011 Wrap-Up

Our 115th installment has us again babbling about SEFF. We are safe and sound now in our respective homes, but our minds are still reeling from this incredible event, so please indulge us as we cover the events of the last day, including SEFF Night Bowling and significant adult beverages. LoL

Quasi-Live From SEFF 2011

Our 114th installment has all three of your hosts together for the first time. We all piled into Bob's camper, fired up the ol' laptop, and attempted to give you our impression of SEFF live from Hodges Field (well, it was live when we recorded it LoL). If you listen carefully, you may hear the generator running in the background, as well as the occasional Ritewing fly-by, as my noise filter just couldn't get it all.

Thanks to every one of you that went out of your way to make us all feel so welcome. This was, by far, the greatest event that I have ever attended and will be making plans to do it again next year!

Here's the LINK to this week's show.

I wanted to take a QuadCopter with me to SEFF this year to demonstrate how well the Flight Stabilization System that John and I have been using works. The QuadCopter I've come up with is, by no means, an optimal setup. It is WAY over-powered and WAY small - so small in, in fact, that with the props off it will fit inside one of my larger transmitter cases!

As you can see in the video, I have some settings that I need to adjust to make this as stable as my TriCopter, but it is quite flyable with the "stock" settings that I am using here. I think that once I get it dialed in, it will prove to be a very nice flyer and will be able to hover "hands off" like my Tri.

That Sweet Smell Of Diesel

It's been a busy week for all three of your hosts as we are preparing for our week of fun in Georgia. Nonetheless, we get together for this 112th installment of the show to talk about some new offerings that have popped up (some are just totally unbelievable! LoL) and a conversion that Ron has been considering. Additionally, the RCadvisor is back this week to discuss another publication that may help you understand these models we fly.
