Well, SEFF 2012 is now in the history books and a great time was had by all. As I write this, I am at the house of the famous lmopar69 and I will be departing on my trip home first thing in the morning. That should put me home some time late Monday night and I will be uploading a fresh show that we recorded while at the field Friday night. The show should go live no later than Tuesday morning, May 1st!

Hey, gang! There's been tons going on since we last visited with you, what with the Toledo Weak Signals Show and SEFF 2012 preparation. In this 159th installment, we discuss what we heard from the the big show in Toledo (neither of us were able to attend) what with a few product announcements and some great pictures a listener shared with us. And in prep for SEFF, well, you should see my workshop - it's a mess! LoL I did, however, get turned on to a great new addition to SlowBipes fleet - the new StuntBipe! In fact, you'll get to see it first-hand (and maybe even fly it) if you're attending SEFF. I was really impressed with it!
We also get another visit from the RCadvisor with a discussion on wing incidence. And hey, if you've got a few minutes to spare, you should check out a couple of very informative new videos that Carlos has released (in the links below).
Once last note: Tim and Eli are planning to pluck the winner of our RACores Mini Gremlin GiveAway sometime this week! If you cruise over to our FaceBook Fan Page, you can see a photo of my completed one. If you don't win this one, please consider ordering one from Jim. They're inexpensive, easy to build, and are a great way to get your friends into combat!

Since all three of your Crash Cast hosts are planning the pilgrimage to SEFF 2012 later this month, we thought it a good idea use this 158th installment to go over some of the preparation you might want to go through before going on a trip like this, be it a trip to your local flying field, or a long haul to an out-of-town or out-of-state-event. Also, the RCadvisor is back again with another Ask The RCadvisor segment - this time you'll get some great tips for preparing for a maiden flight on that new aircraft.
RCRN Is BACK! (And better than ever!)
The deadline for entering our Mini Gremlin GiveAway (courtesy of Jim over at RACores) is fast approaching! All you have to do to enter is to LIKE us on our Facebook Fan Page and upload your picture of your crashed RC aircraft and you'll be entered! If you do not have a Facebook account, then you may consider emailing me (address in the show) your picture and I'll post it for you.
Also, please note that we will not have a show next week, due to our spending Easter Sunday with our families, but we'll be back the following week! Feel free to listen instead to some of our older nonsense. :)
