We're back again with another installment of our little show, and #204 is a great one! We get a great little update on some more improvements being made at our favorite flying site in Georgia from our friend Tripp. We get to hear all about that top-secret plane that Laine has been working on, and Laine and Tim give away two cool prizes to a couple of lucky entrants: Robert King won a Precision Aerobatics Thrust 40 motor, and Tom (Damage) Minnick will be the recipient of one of Laine's custom-built Li'l Cudas (Rx/battery ready!). There's still time to get in on next week's prize - an eRC J-5 Cub from Tim (paypal to THESRT10(AT)gmail.com). It's looking quite feasable that there will be a WFAIWTM in the Team Cobra camp at SEFF 2013!
We had a LOT of fun in this 203rd installment of our little show. Oh, and we have a special guest on this one - Mike Connor (aka BlenderBoy) from the RC Hangar Time podcast! We'll get a little insight on Mike's RC background as well as some great info on his latest passion, the Goblin 500 and 700 helicopters! Also, Laine pops on to host a special contest for our LIVE listeners where he gives away a brand spankin' new Castle Thunderbird 18 Speed Controller (won by our friend Vintauri). Be sure to listen in on this show if you didn't make the LIVE broadcast, as he and Tim will be giving away some more cool prizes in the next few weeks! Instructions are given on how to enter, and you need not be present to win (remember the email address - THESRT10(AT)gmail.com).
As for the weird name of this week's segment, I think you'll figure out what it means while listening.
The title of this 202nd show was thought up ingeniously by one of the members of our LIVE listening audience (Joel aka MetroGTi), and it really sums up our main topic this week! In this show, we'll try to provide you with some inspiration for some inexpensive ways to re-purpose some of that old Micro Gear that you may have laying around from a defunct or no longer interesting Ember, Vapor, or some other Micro plane you may have in the corner of your workshop. Oh, and we tried to give away one of Laine's "Lil Cuda" kits, but no one could guess this week's "Phrase That Pays", so we will try again on next week's LIVE SHOW.
Yep, that's pretty much all we did in our 201st show - just horsin' around. LoL We do, however, share some cool RC stuff we've found at some great prices, we give an update on the QSC Rogallo project, we share some listener emails, and we talk a bit more about the whoe"drone" situation going on in America, and how our hobby may be affected. We invite you to kick back and enjoy our ramblings for yet another week. Also, please consider stopping by our LIVE show sometime - some of our most interesting stuff has been popping up in the post-show!
Join us this week as Tim, Navionflyer, Karl, and I celebrate our 200 installment of the show! We share what all we've been up to this last week, as well as do a little PSA urging you guys to do your part to protect the sport that we all love. Also, we have Jim Reith from RACores on to share with us his visit last week to the WRAM show, as well as some other cool stuff he's involved with.
Jim so graciously shared one of his YAK 55 kits for us to give away during this LIVE show, and it was won by michaelkramer11! Thanks so much to Jim at RACores for this cool prize!
