We are back again this week, but Tim is MIA. No worries, though, as Hance has popped on to take his place for our 183rd show. There's not been a whole lot going on in the workshop lately, but I did get a chance to fly a great little plane that Hance sent (along with another interesting item LoL) and it was quite the handful! Join us for some news on some new offerings as well as some of your letters and links.
2.4ghz Wing Direction Aerial (Near the bottom - Thanks, Cal!)
FlyLineRC (Does anyone know of this is any good?)
A Smaller Vapor?? (Bathroom flying, anyone?)
Edge 540QQ 280 BNF (Looks like another Quique hit!)

3D Printed Airplane (Thanks for the link, Tony!)

In this, our 182nd installment, the whole crew is in the workshop discussing this and that in the RC world. We talk about some new products and discuss a couple of letters received, but the main topic this week is my synopsis of MY experiences of HHAEFI 2012. If you ever get a chance to attend this event at Hodges Field every October, you've just GOT to attend! In summation, it's like a "kinder, gentler SEFF". LoL
Griff-Werks Foamies (Some of the BEST looking Foamies On The Planet!)
AquaCopters! (Oh, these things are SWEET!)
Bildo's HHAEFI Vid (Check 3:15 for Bildo's "prediction" and 4:00 for the "landing")
Mako Sea Plane (Sure to be a WMP Hit!)
The RCadvisor's Latest Endeavor (Carlos gets a dream job!)
The bigShoulders (Another inexpensive DIY CNC option for WeatherVane)
SuperFlyRC (Coupon Code CRASH)
I would like to express my heartfelt THANKS to all of the people that took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday on the 14th, whether through email (David The Swarfer), Skype (David D.), Facebook (WAAAAY too many to list), and at Hodges (the Stahr family, the Georgia Crew, and the rest of you great folks). This was one of the greatest b-day experiences ever and you guys all ROCK!!

Well, not a very interesting title this week, but it get's it done. LoL We've got the full gang together this week and we discuss some updates, read a few listener emails, Karl shares some Heli tips, and more of our usual nonsense. :) Hey - it looks like I am going to HHAEFI!! I hope to see you there!!

It's me and the two Tims this week for our 180th episode, and we catch up on all that we've been up to since our last visit, as well as share a few things we've discovered in the hobby during the last week. We also tackle a subject we've never really talked about - setting up a new-pilot training program at your club (thanks to Doug for writing in on this!).

Great Planes Phazer (This looks pretty cool!)
