In this installment, we cover a LOT of ground with topics ranging from contests to some new products coming onto the scene.

Fudge, Flying Fun, and Glow Plugs?

Back from vacation now so you get an update of my trip and flying fun. We also get around to answering a letter regarding just exactly how glow plugs stay lit without your ignitor hooked up.

Check out the SOTW section over at AllThingsCrash if you're looking for a fantastic deal on a complete flight pack for your indoor plane!

August PhlatBoyZ Update

In this installment, we get our monthly PhlatPrinter fix with an interview with the PhlatBoyZ, Mark and Trish. We get some updates on the PhlatBoard, the Surfer Dude plane designed by Mark, and various other cool things going on in the PhlatLab. Something all modelers will want to check out is the video that PhlatForum member 3DMon composed to show us how to take any SketchUp design and create their own PDF plans (both full and tiled) using the FREE CutePDF application.

Head on over to for links to the video and application!

I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get a podcast installment out while being on vacation, but it all worked out just fine. Before leaving out, I was able to get an interview in with Mr. LazerToyz himself, Dan Greathouse. Dan gives us a glimpse as to how LazerToyz was founded and we talk about many of their offerings.

PCV's??? LOL

In this show Dorsal and I gab about a few things, including my preparations for the vacation that I'll be heading out on in a few days. I will be reviewing the Axon Racing P51D airplane soon, since I ordered one from 2DogRC last evening and should be receiving it the week I return. Also, I'll be working up some sort of facsimile of Jackosmeister's Turbo Flea very soon to try out as a test-bed for the new 3,oookv Blue Wonder that HobbyCity has been selling.

Remember, if you decide to follow suit and order yourself an Axon P51D kit, be sure to use coupon code "TheCrashCast" at 2DogRC to save 10% off your order!

No real SOTW this week, but we did talk about some great deals over at HeadsUpRC.
