Well, it's official - I've begun the process of getting an FPV plane in the air! I'll tell you all about the preliminary equipment that I've ordered and share a little about how I'm going about my adventure legally and following our AMA's guidelines. I've even started the wheels in motion for getting my Amateur Radio Tech-level license! Additionally, we share some cool things found on the interwebs as well as some listener emails, and we even have the RCadvisor back for another segment.

If you have been interested in getting one of our bare Pro Mini-based QSC Interconnect boards for your Multi-Rotor project, we have 8 of them in stock for only $25 each shipped (we've qualified a new supplier that's a little cheaper). If you want one, please email my buddy John directly and he'll tell you how you can get one - JBernard810ATgmail.com.

We are taking this week off with the show. Ron is traveling on business, Tim is answering a Fire Alarm for work, and I am at home enjoying my family. :) No worries, though. We'll be back next week preaching the gospel that is RC!
Have a great week!

In this week's installment (our 122nd), Tim, Ron, and I discuss a plethora of links to some cool stuff we've found in the last week - some are for products and some are for some great informative sites you'll probably want to bookmark. Additionally, I read some letters we've received. Our resident RCadvisor (Carlos Reyes) is taking a few weeks off, but he'll be back soon!
Inexpensive DIY Wing Bags (Thanks, rpmrpm!)

While Ron is out enjoying a company picnic with his family and coworkers, Tim and I handle this 121st installment. No worries, though - the banter is bountiful, as we have a couple of guests in the workshop this week! John is in from Florida to talk about some of the new gadgets we're trying out in the Multi-Rotor arena, and my buddy Bob makes his debut on the show to tell us about his new BIG quad and the flying wing he and I built this wekend. Cool stuff!
RCG thread on that $10 Flying Kite we talked about (And a little challenge for Laine! LoL)
CHEAP Power Supplies (Get two if you need 24 volts - I'll be working up some instructions soon!)
This week's NEWS on the Home Page at AllThingsCrash spotlights the pictures that Bob sent in of his new projects, so check it out already! :)
