Well, how about that? Another year has just about escaped us! In this 145th installment, we review all of the fun we've had this year, as well as reveal some of our shortcomings (well, Crash, anyway. LoL). This week we have a neat surprise from the RCadvisor, and then we share our CHRISTmas Wishlists along with letters to Santa from Colin, Tony, and Gary. Oh, and one last thing: please check out Tim's plane pictures on our Facebook Fan Page and see if you can help Tim identify two of his recent aircraft acquisitions.

Colin B. has also been very good and would like a few things, too. He's been jonesing for some Rokenbok (Oh, I've got to get some of these!!) goodies, a Losi Micro HighRoller or Short Course Truck, a Mountain Models EZ Sport, a nice Pin Vise, a Prop Balancing Stand, a Lipo Sack, and maybe some help with some shop renovations.
Tony O. has only a simple wish this year, Santa. He just wants to have a look at your list of all the girls that made your Naughty List. ;)
Little Timmy would really like to have a new airplane kit that's kind of retro - something like the Cleveland PlayBoy Senior. Santa, I hafta to say, I'm not really sure Timmy has been that good this year. Something about too much jar, whatever that means.
Ron really needs something extra special for all the hard work he's done this year. He's really been wanting something like a TroyBuiltModels 30cc SBach with all of the trimmin's to go with it. Of course, he can always use some stocking stuffers like batteries and servos and such.
TheCrashCast will be going "dark" for the next two weeks, but we will be back the week of January 8th. Until then, we wish you all a Merry CHRISTmas, and a safe and prosperous New Year!

In this 144th installment of our show, we take you through a simple exercise to find an optimal power system for the Electrifly Cosmic Wind ARF. I am looking forward to getting this airplane in the air, as it looks like it may be quite fast! We also share some cool things found on the web, as well as clue you in on how you can WIN a Mini Intern Kit from our friends over at RadicalRC.
Remember, next week is our End-Of-Year, CHRISTmas show, so if you have a CHRISTmas Wishlist that you would like us to share on that show, email it to me at the address given during the lead-out at the end of each show.
RadicalRC (sponsor of our Mini Intern GiveAway)
You can enter for your chance to win the RadicalRC Mini Intern airplane kit (like what we are building in our soon-to-be-released 3rd Build-Along Series) by simply 'liking' our Facebook Fan Page and uploading a picture of you with your favorite RC Model(s)! One lucky entrant will be selected at random around the end of January 2012 and will win the kit offered up by our friends at RadicalRC. No purchase of any kind is necessary, and only one entry per person is allowed. Good luck!!

As 2011 starts winding down to a close, we finally get a chance to catch up with our buddies (Mark and Trish Carew) over at PhlatBoyZ HQ in this 143rd installment of our show. They've had quite a busy year this year and yet they just keep plugging away on new manufacturing solutions that we can all look forward to! (Remember, if you've been contemplating purchasing one of the fine pieces of equipment from the PhlatBoyz (Original PhlatPrinter, PhlatPrinter III, or the PhlatFormer), be sure to enter Coupon Code "CRASHCAST" to get $25 off your order! Please note that this offer ends when 2011 is over.)
Additionally, Ron talks a bit about the RadicalRC Flightbox that he's started putting together, I share some news about a very interesting FPV plane I found and the prize I won over at XtremeFlyer, and the RCadvisor is back with a segment on servo end points!

A special THANKS! goes out to our friend (wishing to be known simply as an "Anonymous Builder") that donated the last amount of money needed to make TheCrashCast completely "listener supported" in 2012. A total of twenty four of your folks took care of us in short order. We will try our absolute best to make it worth your funds in the new year. God Bless you all!!
