Another Really Big Show!

Yes, we really push our file limitations with our hoster on this one. I apologize up fron if our 172nd show eats up a lot of space on your listening device - we just had so much to share! We've got lots of great listener tips this week, as well as some great news around the interwebs, including another cool contest from our favorite MultiRotor forums. Also, we have the RCadvisor back with us ending this week's podcast with an explanation of How Airplanes Fly.

Be sure that you get in on our latest contest; it's sponsored by our good friends over at SlowBipe.com. All you have to do is email me your favorite RC Tip, or even post it on our Facebook Fan Page. At the end of August, we'll throw all of the entries into a hat and draw the winner. That lucky person wins a MiniBipe kit!!! We've had a ball reading the submissions that we've received thus far!

Good Cheap Foam

This week, it's NavionFlyer that's my co-host and we record show number 171, but this time I'm recording in the new Studio! We break it in right with some news, some letters, and our main topic this week is about some interesting videos Tim found from a guy that's building some need planes out of Dollar Tree Foam (you know, the 20" x 30" stuff you get for only a buck?).

Also, be sure that you get in on our latest contest; it's sponsored by our good friends over at SlowBipe.com.

Pushing To The Limit

This week, the two Tims and I try to shed a little light on different ways of getting your servos actions to the control surfaces of your airplane. Yep, it's all about pushrods! Also, we announce a new contest, too! On our September 2nd show we get to give away a cool Mini SlowBipe Kit from our friends over at SlowBipe.com, so be sure you listen and get the dope on how you can enter!

The Old Man And The Sea

First off, I want to apologize for the poor sound quality (on my track) in this 169th installment of our show. I have torn everything up in my workshop while doing this 'Studio build' and unfortunately, all of my professional-grade recording equipment is BURIED! LoL If all goes as planned, I'll be recording our next episode in the new digs and the quality I have always prided myself in should return.

This week, we take a little diversion from our normal RC aircraft discussions and delve into the world of RC Sailing, and who better to tap on this subject than our buddy and avid sailer, Grandpa Tony! This sounds like a great way to keep those thumbs (and brain) nimble on those days that are just not quite right for flying, and Tony shares with us the gear he uses and how it all works.

Power Connectors

After last weekend off due to Field Day, Karl and I are back this week with our 168th installment. I get to give a good, in depth review of the Harbor Freight generator that I broke in last weekend, and we also bring you some various news items we've found on the interwebs, too. The RCadvisor is also back this week with discussion of a new material he's found that we would LOVE to find it's way to the model aircraft arena!
