Thanks.
We are working on audio quality , so there may be variations in the next few shows - but the goal of course is to get it down good. So bear with us.

Hey guys. I've been thinking of doing a heli podcast for about a year, but never got around to it. I'm glad someone finally did.
One thing I think you need to do is talk to more independent experts (people who are respected in the community) and not just vendors. The first interview with the guy from common sense was okay, although a little light on some technical aspects.
Also, I think that if you've decided that you're knowledgeable enough to be recommending helis to beginners then I would personally prefer that you stayed away from the cheap chinese knock-offs and stuck to good quality machinery.

All in all, a good show. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback! We are in fact going to talk to more non-vendor folks (including next episode).

As for the recommendation to "...stay away from cheap chinese knock-offs"? Please point me to a good beginner/trainer heli that isn't made in China and I'll be glad to evaluate it and recommend it (or not) based on my experience.

Checked out RareBear's interview and though it was easy going and pretty good.
Flowed well, sounded like your all naturals and have you been doing it for years .


Is it me or did everyone just get a King2 recently (except me that is ).

Thanks DH! If you liked that one, wait until you hear this week's (tonight or tomorrow) where we talk to "Finless Bob".

I didn't buy a King either. Yet.
