Excellent concept, professional videography, hits all the highlights of the plane tested. BRAVO!

Where it needs work is in the humor segments of "Newbie Josh". IMHO you portray his character as a bit too dense as he doesn't seem to listen, or learn (i.e. "throwing the airplane"). You might get more humor mileage with one instruction ("No, you can't throw the airplane") then segment to Newbie Josh starting to throw the airplane behind Pro Josh's back, but stopping when he realizes he shouldn't and displays a look of chagrin (or gets caught trying to throw it and learns to listen).

Clearly, you are building characters for the series. Excellent. It's going well, but please give a bit more thought to the Newbie Josh character. If you portray him as dense, you will have taken the low road to humor. If you portray him as "learning" you will take a higher road, which I think will play well with this audience.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Hi Ad,
Glad you could join us over here. Yes I drew the "gremlin" then a friend of ours designed the circles and text around him. Josh Bixler wants to make a "flying gremlin" to help promote the show. Waddya think?

You're avatar is the coolest I've ever seen! Is that you flying? We're going to start incorporating viewer footage into the shows. Do you have anything you'd like to share with us?

Hi Bum,
What you're saying makes sense. I try not to put too much thought into it though. We just point the camera at them and let 'em talk. We will be training Josh Scott as we go and he will fly eventually.
Thanks for the input!

I like the banter between the noob and non-noob. Great back and forth and nice coverage of the do's and don'ts. A smattering of build tips specific to the plane may be helpful but I thought it was spot on for what I believe you're aiming at here. A build thread is more appropriate for in-depth info

Looking forward to seeing this progress

We might release our first "Flite Tip" on Wednesday. Maybe we'll release the next review on Thursday. The forum activity really slows down over the weekends.
