This week you get to listen to all three of us knuckleheads (me, Dorsal, and IFLYOS) ramble on about various things. We answer a listener's email about how we go about selecting a power system for a new project, and we clue you in on a special "Ask The RCAdvisor" segment that we hope to introduce next week!
Are you tired of the same old designs composed of balsa, foam, balsa and foam, foam and balsa, more foam, balsa, etc? LOL Well, how about just abandoning those old mediums? GO FLY A KITE! (An RC Kite, that is!)

This week we're honored to have an old friend back in the workshop with us - Mr. Carlos Reyes from RCAdvisor.com. Carlos spent the Fall of 2009 working on a very interesting project. You'll want to give this show a listen to get a glimpse into what kinds of considerations are made when designing aircraft for a specific purpose like UAV! Also, Carlos teases us a bit regarding some upcoming projects in his backlog. Do I smell another book? Hmmm...

Hey gang, we're back! After a peaceful 2 week break (actually, I've been ill and trying to get my voice back for the last 2 weeks! LOL), we get a chance to visit with the PhlatBoyZ to find out what all they've been up to as well as see what their plans are for this new year.
I added an interesting goody in the Steals Of The Week section over at AllThingsCrash, as well as an article on 4 Axis Hot-Wire CNC Machines that so many of our listeners have been asking about, so pop over and check this stuff out!

I am so sorry, folks, but yours truly here is still down with this terrible upper respiratory infection which renders me somewhat unable to put out this week's installment of TheCrashCast. The good news is that I'm starting to get my voice back. The bad news is that I can't talk for 30 seconds without breaking out into an awful coughing fit. Thanks for your understanding!
We'll be back next week with this year's first installment. You'll want to tune in because we're slated to have the PhlatBoyZ back on to talk about their 2010 goals and I'm certain we'll hear all about that new commercial CNC machine they've just installed at PhlatBoyZ HQ!
