You guys have asked for it, and now you've got it! You can now order your official "CrashCast" goodies, including the shirts like I wear. This supplier is not the cheapest, but I have been quite impressed with the quality of the items that I have received from them over the last four years.
Please note that I do not make any profit on these items and you get to buy them for the exact same cost as I have to pay.

In this 195th installment of our show, we finally got around to doing something we've wanted to do for a LONG time - we streamed this show LIVE! Special thanks goes out to my co-host, Karl, for helping get this junk figured out. We didn't really publicize this, though some friends on Facebook helped to get the message out. We had a few folks listen in and the report back was that everything worked just fine (Thanks go to Vintauri, Hance, MetroGTI, Cloudsplitter, PCPhil, RCPtero, and you other guys that provided feedback for this test).
We talked about the usual things we normally cover - some new stuff, some videos, and other cools things we found that pertain to this great RC hobby.
Join us next week for another LIVE show that we will do on Sunday, February 3rd, at 9pm EST HERE (if the link works correctly LoL)!

In this, our 194th show, the whole gang is together to share all kinds of RC goodness with you! We've got Multi-Rotor talk, new items we've found, we answer some letters, and if you can tolerate it, we get a bit silly in this one, too.
MassiveRC (This is where I got my Scorpion V202 Quad)
RCPA Podcast (1st Episode)
mCPx Programming Guide For A9 (Thanks, Karl!)
I've decided not to link the video that we referenced in this show. However, a simple Google search will land you the video, but I warn you, the language is awful. LoL

Join Tim, Karl, and ol' Crash for this 193rd installment of the show where we talk a bit about some BIG planes, Open Source Radio Systems and hacks, some nice looking knock-off planes, and my new Quad project that I'll be starting soon. The name for this week's show is in relation to the special event that Karl got to help out with, so you'll want to hear this story. Also, after some goading from some regular listeners, we do a real "first" for the show and get into a bit of a Second Amendment discussion (don't worry, we don't plan on doing this again anytime soon LoL).
Futaba 10C Hack (Thanks, Tom!)
OSRC Project (Kudos to FliteTest for bringing this info!)
More Cartoon Planes (if you can translate it LoL)
MWC MultiWii Board (I'm gonna try one of these)
Four Star 40 K/O? (Looks good!)
