Launch Of A New Site!

In this installment, Dorsal and I discuss the scope (and hardships of setting it up!) of the new website supporting this podcast. As well, we talk about some new (actually OLD) computer equipment I purchased for the workshop. There's also some great Steals Of The Week in this show!

Remember, next week is our monthly PhlatBoyZ update, so be sure to catch the show!

Covering 101

This week, Dorsal and I discuss all kinds of things related to covering your new model airplane with heat-shrink films.

I apologize for not including my Steal Of The Week in the show. We totally ran out of time! Nonetheless, I am including the link to the page I had intended to share. I saw this company's wares while at the Toledo RC Expo and was quite impressed with the quality of items they had to offer and you won't believe these sale prices!

Redux: Live Toledo Webcast

Let's flash back to the past for a moment, shall we?

DATELINE: Toledo, OH, Saturday, Aril 4th

The plan was to go fly a bit at the RCGroups Open Flying session after the Toledo RC Show closed down for the evening. We would then retire back to Mark and Trish's hotel room and set up for a live version of TheCrashCast. We would use Trish's new laptop and wireless card along with the webcam that was broadcasting from the skies over the PhlatBoyz Booth. Well, the 'cast was slightly delayed due to someone (ahem!) forgetting the power cables for said laptop. LOL

Nonetheless, we pulled off a LIVE webcast, albeit a little behind schedule. This week's installment is a replay of the audio from that session where we discuss how the PhlatPrinter MKII was received during it's public debue. We also discuss some of the cool things we saw at the show, as well as neat people we met!

I've got tons of information from this show that I intend to share with all of you, but we'll have to cover it in future episodes. I'm totally BEAT from the 19 hour drive back! LOL I did, however, want to get this audio up for those that missed it. We had great fun recording it, and I hope you enjoy the listen.

Finally made it! More than 21 hours on the road!

Gonna drop into a sleep-deprived coma for the next 12 hours.

Be sure to check out my live broadcast on Saturday night, April 4th, around 8pm EDST. If bandwidth is strong, you get a video/audio report from the show. If it is weak, then you'll only get audio. If it's really weak, you won't get anything, but you can still hear our session as next week's podcast (available Sunday, April 5th or Monday, April 6th).
