With Spring fast approaching, and I know most of us are ready to be done with this Winter stuff, we discuss some things you might want to do to get your fleet ready for the upcoming flying season!
In this 247th episode, we also discuss the sad news that a couple of our favorite RC businesses have (or will be) closing up shop:
ReadyHeli, as we understand it, has ceased operations. However, it looks as though HeliDirect may be offering up some warranty service for some of the products that customers may have purchased from RH on a limited basis. Customers needing warranty service may want to get in touch with HeliDirect customer service to find out how they may be able to help.
Also, after 26 years in the business, it seems that Miniature Aircraft (a leader in the domestic RC helicopter industry) will cease operations on February 28th. This is particularly sad, as MA has been known industry wide for the fine products that they made right here in the good old U.S. of A. Check their website for details on where their existing stock will be going so you can stock up on parts for your favorite heli!

Our pet project this year, as it was last year, is the Wings For Wishes Montana IV event that benefits the Make A Wish foundation in Montana. This year will be the fourth annual event and if you cannot make it but still want to help them out, please consider making a donation to this great cause!
