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!
Joins us for this 199th installment of our show where we discuss all kinds of stuff relative to the RC world. We even let ol' Laine on the show towards the end, too! LoL
Be sure to tune in to our LIVE show next week (Number 200!) where we will get a WRAM show wrap-up from our buddy Jim (RACores.com), and there's also a chance we may have something to give away to one of our live-show listeners!!
In this 198th installment of our little show, we get a chance to visit with the fine gents from TeamBasementRC (Rod, Mike, and Yuvsky)! They share with us their goings on in the fantastic world of FPV in the Great White North, and boy, do these guys have fun! Also with us is Vintauri to share with us his visit to eFest last weekend and his most recent visit to our friends at Sig Manufacturing.
In addition to these interviews and our usual clowning around, we gave away a couple of the Flip 1.5 Multi-Rotor FC boards courtesy of our friend Paul over at ReadyToFlyQuads - congrats Coreman and Spadtrastic!
Be sure you check out our SHOW PAGE for some information on some give-aways coming up!
In this 197th installment of our show, we have the whole gang in the workshop for this LIVE recording! As well, we are pleased to have a special guest - Mr. Eric Kendall! Eric is the man behind the Wings For Wishes event that benefits the Make A Wish Foundation in the state of Montana. If you should find yourself within range of this event in August, you're certainly going to want to make plans to attend. If you are NOT able to attend, be sure to listen to this episode for instructions on how you still be able to support this great cause.
As you may have already heard, we had a problem with our recording of show 196 last evening (thanks to Microsoft turning Skype into, well, a typical Microsoft product). Since we discussed quite a few cool things, I just hated to NOT put a product out this week. That being said, this show is my attempt at a "redo" of some of what we discussed last night.
In this 195th installment of our show, we finally got around to doing something we've wanted to do for a LONG time - we streamed this show LIVE! Special thanks goes out to my co-host, Karl, for helping get this junk figured out. We didn't really publicize this, though some friends on Facebook helped to get the message out. We had a few folks listen in and the report back was that everything worked just fine (Thanks go to Vintauri, Hance, MetroGTI, Cloudsplitter, PCPhil, RCPtero, and you other guys that provided feedback for this test).
We talked about the usual things we normally cover - some new stuff, some videos, and other cools things we found that pertain to this great RC hobby.
In this, our 194th show, the whole gang is together to share all kinds of RC goodness with you! We've got Multi-Rotor talk, new items we've found, we answer some letters, and if you can tolerate it, we get a bit silly in this one, too.
Join Tim, Karl, and ol' Crash for this 193rd installment of the show where we talk a bit about some BIG planes, Open Source Radio Systems and hacks, some nice looking knock-off planes, and my new Quad project that I'll be starting soon. The name for this week's show is in relation to the special event that Karl got to help out with, so you'll want to hear this story. Also, after some goading from some regular listeners, we do a real "first" for the show and get into a bit of a Second Amendment discussion (don't worry, we don't plan on doing this again anytime soon LoL).
This week's show and links
Happy New Year! Show number 192 marks our first for 2013, and the beginning our our fifth season doing the RC podcast thing. This week, we've got Karl and Navionflyer sharing what we've been up to over the holiday break. Also, we're back with some more great news and links to some nifty-looking products that have captured our attention as of late.
As you may already know, last week's "Dear Santa" show went long, so we kept the tape rolling and we put together this "Year In Review" for you guys this week! In this 191st installment of our show (and our last for 2012) join me, Tim, Hance, and Dougbo for a short review of all of the goodness that this year has had to offer!
Thanks to all of you that have made this year so much fun, from our supporters and prize sponsors, to listeners and all you folks that make this hobby the greatest in the world!
May God bless each and every one of you this CHRISTmas, and may 2013 bring tons of RC building and flying for all!!
Wow! CHRISTmas has already rolled around again? Didn't we just celebrate it like 11 months ago??
This week, in our 190th installment, IFLYOS and I are treated to a couple of guests in the workshop - Hance and DougBo!! There's some news on the hobby front, and a couple of new items we've found to discuss, and when we get that stuff out of the way, we share a few listener's Dear Santa letters along with what WE would like to receive.
Hance held a little contest over at the RC Pilots Association Facebook Page and announced a WINNER of one of his Edge 540 or YAK 55 foamie kit, but you guys will have to wait until next week to find out who won.
In this week's 189th installment, NavionFlyer and I get to visit with Mark and Trish Carew, makers of those famous PhlatPrinter machines that we all know and love. They spend some time cluing us in on all they've been up to lately, including the OpenRail linear motion system and the new OpenBuilds site where we will be able to build and share our best home-built machines that help us to enjoy our RC hobby to it's fullest!
REMINDER - Next week will be our last show of the year, so if you want to send us your "Dear Santa" letter, we'd really enjoy sharing it on the show when we share what all WE want.
Isn't it funny how we start off by saying we really don't have much to go over for the week, but yet we still are about to occupy 90 minutes worth of your time? Well, that's the case with this 188th installment of our show, LoL Join us for some more all-over-the-board discussion (as seems to be our norm these days).
A special THANK YOU! goes out to our supportive listener base this week, as you guys have come to our aid with your donations by helping pay for our web fees for 2013!!
After a very late night, I am finally getting around to writing the description and links for this 187th installment of our show. LoL
We talked about all kinds of stuff in this one, and we have TONS of links for you to peruse, including our "Spotlight Vendor" this week, AfterDarkLED - your source for premium lighting solutions for all of your RC needs!
Hey, it's that time of year where we will accept your "Dear Santa" Letters. This is a perfect time for you to hint at what you REALLY want for CHRISTmas from that significant other. Drop me a line and I'll share your wishes on an upcoming show!!
We've got a TON of links this week - check them out HERE
Yes, true to ourselves, we get a little off-topic again in this 186th installment of our show. Nonetheless, we get back on topic after a brief hiatus. This week it's me, Tim, and Navionflyer along with a specials guest - Chris Klick of RiteWing fame! Chris tells us wht all he's been up to, including the new injection-moulded Zephyrs and FPV. Also, RiteWingRC is our "Spotlight Vendor" this week, qualifying with great products, great customer support, and it's an American-based company, to boot!
For this, our 185th show, we've got a full house. Karl is away, but we have Steve "Vintauri" Mills warming his seat! Steve got a chance to do some interesting stuff last weekend and he tells us all about his action-packed weekend. Oh, yeah, there's also some letters and websites, and junk.
Be sure to check out our "Spotlight Sponsor" this week - LazerToyz!
