RC Roundtable Episode 68: Flite Fest Texas




Episode 68: "Flite Fest Texas" is now live!

http://rcroundtable.com/podcasts/mp3/RCR_episode_68.mp3

In this episode, Fitz, Lee, and friends (new and old) report live from Flite Fest Texas in Apache Pass. As usual for our on-site coverage, the conversation is fast-paced and unpredictable. So there's no menu this time.

You can visit our website at RCRoundtable.com to listen over the web or download an MP3 of the show. Or, you can subscribe to RC Roundtable on iTunes.

Modeling Retread

We’re the Foocowee


Title for Lee Ray not sure of the spelling.

What a great event. Glad you mentioned the family aspect. Really good stuff.

We were talking about the event last night at our club meeting as part of a discussion about recruiting new members. We were talking about reaching out to the park flyer community. While it is fertile ground but it is dominated by dabblers. The Flite Test flyers, on the other hand, are investing effort and time in their airplanes, so they might be a better source.

Several of our members already build Flite Test planes but we think we need an additional hook. At the top of our mind is building some of the big sketchy planes, top of the list being one of Laine’s giant paper planes. The thought being you can fly most Flite Test stuff at a park but you need a field for the big sketchy stuff. It might be the basis for a Spring event. Maybe we could get a visit from the big Funder and Lightning.
