In this 234th installment we cover a surprising amount of ground! There's a bit of news, some info on how you can support our show AND get a chance to get "gifted" some cool goodies, we get to hear Karl's second part of the interviews he did while traveling abroad, and we debut a new segment called "Ask Witespy" where we bring on our Multi-Rotor Guru to field questions regarding the newest facet of our hobby that is totally sweeping the nation!

Also, you may want to consider popping in sometime to our LIVE audio stream of the show every Wednesday night at 7pm Central. You'll get to hear the show as it happens, mistakes and all), but best of all, you get to participate in the Post Show that never gets aired. This week, Dadde stopped by and hung out with us and we had a blast with our favorite Swede!

Our 233rd installment of our show sees us all back in the workshop and streaming LIVE! Join us as we reminisce about Karl's trip to the Indian Summer Jamboree in Washington State and Crash, Tim, and Nav's trip to HHAEFI. Trust me - LOTS of fun was had!
Also, buried in this episode is an announcement worth repeating here again. West Michigan ParkFlyers has a neat giveaway slated for Halloween. The basics are that on October 31st, open your browser and hit up WMParkflyers. SOMEWHERE on the site there will be a PUMPKIN hiding out. If you're the first one to find it, CLICK ON IT! One lucky person will have the opportunity to purchase one of WMP's fine kits for only ONE CENT plus standard $7 shipping. SWEET!!

A very special THANK YOU goes out to all of the friends of TheCrashCast Crew for making us all feel so welcome at Indian Summer and HHAEFI! Dougbo and Hance (as well as many others) accepted and entertained Karl, and deserve a pat on the back for dealing with "that guy from Canadia". :)
Thanks to PCPhil for sharing his camper, "jar", and coffee with us. Phil is a stand-up guy and one that I am so happy to call my friend. Thanks to Cathead Biscuit, HatefulGravy, and Brent for all the laughs. Thanks so much to Shadow102 for sharing his PREMO FPV Quad and sharing his knowledge in FPV with us! Also, thanks go out to AlanFlorida for the "Unicorn Love" shown. LoL And, finally, thanks to the Stahr family and NavionFlyer for the "unusual" birthday presents. :)
Oh, I almost forgot! Thanks go to my buddy, Bildo Baggins, for sharing his infinite wisdom, unique humor, and great video skills! No event in GA is complete without the clown!

In this 231st installment, we get to visit with an old friend - Radical Dave from RadicalRC! Dave is finally getting to cool his heels a bit, as the grueling show season has come to a close for him, and we take an opportunity to do a little catching up with him.
Some quick notes as to our personaly schedules: Karl will be traveling south to meet up with Dougbo and Hance in Reichland, WA, this weekend (Oct. 11-13th) for the Indian Summer Jamboree, so if you're in the area, drop by and say HEY! Also, it's looking like Tim, Navionflyer, and I will be attending HHAEFI October 17-19th, so again, if you're in the area, stop by and say HEY!

In this 230th installment of our little show, we have the opportunity to visit with a gentleman that has offered many of us the "gateway drug" to Multi-Rotors - Romeo (aka MassiveOverkill) from MassiveRC! You may recall that quite some time ago, we got turned on to a little quadcopter (thanks to Hance letting us in on it) called the V202 Scorpion. That little quad (complete package RTF for about $50) proved to be so much fun and so much bang for the buck that we ALL had to get one! LoL I think you guys will enjoy the story of how Romeo started it all with online sales and how he's been able to transform a bunch of "toy grade" flying thingies into a true hobby grade experience! I shudder to think how many folks are now out there flying Quads, thanks to the inexpensive start into the hobby, thanks to MassiveRC!
Also, we gave away a couple more Power Distribution Boards (courtesy of ReadyToFlyQuads) during this show and our lucky winners were Nick K. and MadMarl! These little boards are a MUST if you're building a multi, as they make putting together a wiring harness SO EASY!
