Safety At The Field

In our 157th installment, we finish up our three-part series on safety, so now there are no excuses for accidents - we told you! LoL Also, the RCadvisor is back again this week with his second part to his series on Spins, so you'll want to hear this one to learn what you may do if you should find yourself stuck in one. Oh, yeah, there's also more of our usual banter, but I promise, no more lengthy discussion by old men fussing about our ailments.

Pain And Suffering

In this 156th installment of the show, we'll start right off on some pain and suffering that Ron has been putting up with. Yep, we're just a couple of old guys fussing about our ailments. LoL Honestly, though, we do get into some fun RC talk, so if you want to skip through the first 12 minutes, or so, we'll fully understand.

There is, however, some great discussion on some of the letters we have received, as well as some of the pictures you guys have posted over on our Facebook Fan Page for our Mini Gremlin GiveAway sponsored by our buddy Jim over at RACores. We will be giving away this plane in April,and all you have to do to enter is to post your best crash picture on the Fan Page and you'll be entered in to our GiveAway. If you don't have a Facebook account, but still want to get in, just email me directly with your picture and whatever details you'd like to share, and I'll post it for you.

Oh, and you won't want to miss this week's Ask The RCadvisor segment, as Carlos starts into a two-part series on Spins and Spiral Dives. Good stuff!

Doing The Safety Dance

Yes, that's right - three "40-somethings" out looking for a safe alternative to the "pogo". I bet that left a lot of you behind in the dust! LoL

Seriously, though, it's that time of year again where we will be blowing the dust off of our toys and making weekly pilgrimages to our favorite flying sites. Once a year we like to talk a little about safety in this hobby and we start the ball rolling in this episode where we discuss some tips for safe travel to and from your flying field. In this 155th installment, we've also got some news, as well as another great segment from the RCadvisor - this time it's a bit of a continuation on last week's tips for becoming a better RC pilot. Carlos shares a great site that details aerobatic maneuvers, as well as their "K Factors" ( level of difficulty), and how you might select the maneuvers right for you to become a more accomplished pilot.

Lord Of The Wings...

And that Mopar dude, too. LoL

In this 154th installment of our show, I found myself without a co-host! Never fear, though, as we have a couple of surprise guests in the workshop. Both of these gentlemen took time out of their schedules to visit the workshop and tell us about a little event that's held every year over in Perry, Georgia - The Perry Swap Meet!! Of course, we talk about a bunch of other stuff, too, but I think you'll enjoy it. Thanks so much to both guests for coming on! And if you haven't figured out who these two guys are, just download the show already!!

Also, our good friend Carlos, the RCadvisor, is back again this week with another fantastic segment, this time some tips on becoming a better RC pilot. Oh, and if you haven't visited, you should take a moment to head on over there, as Carlos has been cranking out tons of great articles!
