The title of this 202nd show was thought up ingeniously by one of the members of our LIVE listening audience (Joel aka MetroGTi), and it really sums up our main topic this week! In this show, we'll try to provide you with some inspiration for some inexpensive ways to re-purpose some of that old Micro Gear that you may have laying around from a defunct or no longer interesting Ember, Vapor, or some other Micro plane you may have in the corner of your workshop. Oh, and we tried to give away one of Laine's "Lil Cuda" kits, but no one could guess this week's "Phrase That Pays", so we will try again on next week's LIVE SHOW. :)

CONTEST ALERT! RCPtero has graciously supplied us with a copy of Keith Sparks' "Building With Foam" book that you can win by simply sending us a picture of what YOU would like to build (real aircraft of your 'napkin drawing') once you've learned the techniques described in the book. You can email me the info, or better yet, post it on our Facebook Fan Page. We'll take all the entrants names, toss them in a hat, and then have RCPtero draw the winner at SEFF 2013 in April. Deadline to enter is April 17, 2013. Good Luck!
