Y02E38: Love is Friendship set on Fire

Listen in this week as your hosts are joined by Ron “Ronbo” Stubblefield, and Laine “Lmopar69” Stahr. We reminisce about our friend and mentor, Michael “Crash” Hancock.

We build more than planes in this great hobby. The most important builds of all are the friendships we build along the way.
This is a very special episode you do not want to miss

Y02E37: Rabbits and the Men that Chase Them

This week the guys are really beginning to miss King, so Duck decides to channel his inner King and manages to confuse Cat with technical jargon. Nav stares at his mic when he talks.

Y02E36: Up Next, Apache Pass

This time Gravey, Cathead, Nav, and Duck are joined by a special guest to discuss The Icehouse Fly-in. We also talk about understanding the things that make a battery puffy, the new FrSky Horus X10 and x10s, and a few other products and events.

Y02E35: You’re Gonna Need More Biscuits

This week, Cathead, Gravey, Duck and Nav step out on a limb and start cutting by talking about FPV cameras and the difference between CCD and CMOS cameras. We have a tip for making cheap struts for your vertical stab (thanks Weathervane). News includes our “favorite” multirotor being cut in half by a rocket powered Katana. We talk about Tim King’s nice new and inexpensive camera/transmitter combo. And of course, event coverage.

Y02E34: Blame it on the Rain

This week the guys discuss the state of the hobby and realize that maybe they are the “old guys” now. There are a few things to consider as we escort the hobby into a new era.

Y02E33: I Mustache you a Question

Gravey plans for the future, King tries to explain why he wont be around for the next 6 weeks, Nav blows up his backyard, and all the while Duck and Cathead and nowhere to be seen. (We looked into it, but Amber alerts can only be issued or the kids.) We break into a conversation about how we would spend lotto money on RC, and then get back on track to talk about propellers, the worlds most dangerous fidget spinner.

Y02E32: Hammer Time

Just when you thought it was safe to check your podcast feed again we went and recorded more of our special blend of madness. King flies some continues his love affair with the X-Vert and manages to find a new club to call home. Nav suggest a solution to Gravey’s misgivings about the quality of the AMA’s monthly publication, Model Aviation. Duck has to go back to work on his 3D printer, and the first “drone” strike we can confirm happens a little differently than we might have thought, and carries it’s own kind of controversy.

Y02E31: The Magic of Magazines

This week, Gravey, Cathead, and the Tim’s talk about the internet of the past, magazines. Opinions are shared on many magazines that appeal to the inner modeler. Cat gets really excited about his vanity call sign, King reminds us which generation he is part of, and then suddenly we break into a conversation about a few books and a movie. You can never be sure what you are going to get with the AoA crew. When we finally remember we are supposed to be talking about RC again we, we answer a user email about uncontrollable servos. Then it’s products and events to close the show.

Y02E29: Lost and Found

You thought this episode was lost, didn’t you?  Join Cat, Gravey, and King as they discuss Duo-Copters, nitro to electric conversions, new products, and scissors.  Yep, scissors.  King tells us why he changed his mind about the X-vert, and the gang give you a list of events to check out.

Special thanks goes out to Spectermaster, who ended up having the only known recording of this show after all other recording methods failed. You da man, Spectermaster!
