Retros And Big Foam

In this, our 164th installment of the show, we share all that we have this week on the RC Hobby. There's talk of a new plane reminiscent of an era long gone, talk of a 31 foot foamie (hear that Laine??), a Texas Fly-In hosted by some great people, a really nifty sailplane video, and some other general hobby talk. The RCadvisor is back, as well, answering some questions about a listener's Bell X1 project.

My buddy Ron will be stepping away from the mic after this episode, as his work schedule has changed and interfers with our recording schedule. But no worries, we'll try to get him back on from time to time to keep up with his RC adventures. Thanks for all your help, Ronbo!

Duck Lipping

Yeah, well you'll just have to listen to understand what this week's title is all about. I am ashamed of myself..so incredibly ashamed. In this 163rd installment, we discuss the new plane I ordered and why, what I've been burning up the sky with, and some more interesting things found on the interwebs. Heck! We even go over a few listener emails, to boot! Also, the Ask The RCadvisor segment this week is a cool discussion on V-Tails on our aircraft!

Neckstraps And Aquarium Pumps

This week we offer up our 162nd podcast, and true to our normal form, we cover a lot of ground (including some interesting, but off-topic, stuff). I give some insight on a custom transmitter neckstrap I am making and we also describe a new approach to pumping fuel into your slimers (thanks, Greg!). Tim has had some fun with his new (and somewhat STOLEN! LoL) Sherline 5400 Mill by trying it out on a Mother's Day present for his wife, and Ron shares what all he's been up to while he was away from us. Also, the RCadvisor is back again this week with an insightful discussion on the different types of RC pilots (it certainly made me stop and think!).

Dissecting The Duck

Well, I'm back at home after a fun-filled week in Americis, GA, and after Tim and I do a little re-hash of SEFF, I get into a "dissection" of the old Mud Duckling sharing my experience with the plane (my mistakes and things I will do differently with the next rendition). I also talk a bit about a friend's radio that I saw at SEFF, and Carlos is back again with another "Ask The RCadvisor" segment (learn about choosing the perfect trainer). Oh, and we have a few news items to share, too!
