Much Ado About Nothing - not as in Shakespeare's romantic comedy, but instead like, unfortunately, not a lot to report from the RC front. Dennis has been working on the "Observ-a-shed" and I've just completed and shipped two planes for the open-flying in Toledo. In this 62nd installment we yammer on about various things on the upcoming Toledo Weak Signals RC Show.
Speaking of that, we are also looking at doing a video webcast LIVE from Toledo (not from the floor - more like from the hotel room after Saturday evening flying, like we did last year). If you guys are interested in seeing us all (me, Dennis, the PhlatBoyZ, and anyone else we can get) and hearing that week's show live, then go to AllThingsCrash to vote! If we get enough interest, we'll do it!

Well, I braved the cold, the heavy winds, and the torrential downpour to make my way north to the Weatherford Aero Modeling Society's annual Swap Meet and Auction! I was able to resist blowing my life's savings on all the goodies I found there and only made a meager little $20 purchase. Something that this club has added to this event since my last visit are informative lectures given by key people in the RC Industry. In addition to renewing some old friendships at this huge event, I was also able to form another one with my acquaintence of Rick Cummins, owner of C&M Solutions Hobby AND one of the newest PhlatClub members (my first meeting with a fellow Texas PhlatPrinter enthusiast!)!
I'm doing a solo act this week, so hang on - I'm all over the board on this one! LOL

We're back again this week with talk of our Toledo Show preparations, some recent purchases and a new plane coming out soon (as well as a great scratch project). I am getting a couple of custom wound motors worked up by the Master himself and we also share a couple more great websites geared toward teaching newer RC enthusiasts the things they need to know about electric flight.

In this 59th installment the whole team is here to discuss happenings in our RC lifes, as well as some future events on our schedules. I also talk a little about my new RC Kite (it's almost complete now!) and share a letter from DaveReap that contains some great tips for RC Kite-making. Oh, and in addition to another Ask The RCadvisor segment, I've got a couple of great Steals Of The Week!
