After a short delay due to technical difficulties beyond our control, we finally got our 238th installment of the show off and running. This week we are without Karl, but we pick up David Windestål from FliteTest! We had a great time visiting with our favorite Swede and talked about all kinds of stuff RC and, well, OTHER stuff, too! LoL
A couple of reminders:
1. If you haven't already done so, be sure to check out our "Sponsor Gift Program" over at AllThingsCrash. It a great way to support our show, as well as have an opportunity to get one of three cool gifts!
2. If you've been wanting to snag one of my "OPQ" Frames, you can get it from ReadyToFlyQuads, as Witespy has exclusive distribution rights to this great Quadcopter Frame. When you're there, be sure to pick up everything else you need for this project all from one convenient website!
FliteLab (Loads of info and some great products, too!)

In this 237th installment, we share our week of fun, answer a few questions, and get into a little discussion regarding clubs, flying sites, and PIDs. Also, we've added an additional item to our "Sponsor Gift Program", so you'll want to check this out, for certain.
A quick announcement for all of those that have been inquiring about the OPQ frames I manufacture: I have been distributing all of my frames through ReadyToFlyQuads. This is the best way to go, since they already sell all of the other gear we recommend for outfitting this great little frame!

In this 236th installment of our show, we are all in the workshop and even have a special guest to help us do our best to cover just about everything FPV that we can think of. We welcomed long-time listener and personal friend, Korey Balint (Shadow102) to the show and he helped us to fill in some of the gaps with this fast growing segment of the RC Hobby (both fixed wing and multi-rotor).
I preface the show with some bad news regarding the quality of this episode, so I won't rehash it again in here, but please understand that this issue is just as frustrating on our end as it is yours. We are all cursing Microsoft today (Skype was a great tool until MS got their grubby mitts on it!).

The reason for the name of this particular show is totally related to the "technical difficulties" experienced with the internet, Talkshoe, and Skype. No worries, though, as after about 4 hours of editing magic, this 235th show is actually quite listenable. LoL
This week, we have a friend and long time listener of the show on! Tom "Damage" Minnick had an opportunity to attend the DC Drone Users Conference and he tells us about some of the cool things he was able to take away from this meeting. Thanks go out to Tom for hanging in there with me to finish this recording, as well as our LIVE listeners that stuck it out (but to no avail). Hopefully we can get things sorted out so this type of thing doesn't happen to us again.
