Our 221st episode of the show marks our first time to record/stream on Wednesday! We didn't really have much to discuss in this one, since we just did a show last Sunday. LOL Nevertheless, we pulled together and tried something a little different - we grabbed three of our listeners that were there for the live stream of the show, and found out what THEY had been up to!
Guest #1 turned out to be RCRich! It was nice getting a chance to visit with him for a bit. He's busing preparing for NEAT Fair. We have talked a bit about Rich because we are fans of his designs (remember the Flying Monster and the Flying Minion?)
Guest #2 was Joel 'MetroGTi' Dirnberger, and he was taking a break from packing to listen to the show. You see, Joel will be heading out to Watts Over Owatonna!
Guest #3 was Joe Ford from Castle Creations! Joe popped on after some prodding by Laine. We had a chance to show him some love for his company's products and great customer service. Joe told us a bit about the new Castle Serial Link, and we got to share with him some things that WE would like to see from Castle in the form of a more affordable ESC for Multi-Rotors.
Anderson R/C (Tim's favorite LHS, and I think it will be Nav's, too!)

OstrichCopter? (It seems a new LOW has been achieved. LoL)
During the show, Joel mentioned briefly that he would be going to Owatonna early to attend a funeral, but we failed to go into further detail. Unfortunately, the Owatonna community is mourning the loss of Karen Johnson. Karen was a fixture in the Southern Minnesota Model Airplane Club, as well as the T-Totalers Model T Club. Please know that our thoughts and prayers for strength go out to her family and friends during this difficult time. She will most certainly be missed.
