You have create a plane with the cast. Maybe even a speed build kit ;)

Josh: Why wouldn't you want to do any more community builds. I think it is a great idea.. When I went through most of the FT planes the first place I hit was the forums. Doing these community build will help people in that direction and in turn stay with the FT family!

I think you should drop the cast from the cargo plane and explode in mid air!

I'm thinking you guys should make Josh's cast into an EDF, maybe with an afterburner? I's waterproof, BUT IS IT FIREPROOF?

I think Josh's cast should be a plane, perhaps with an EDF down the hollow.
My suggestion for it's name is 'Jet Pod-Cast'

I'm going to go with the cast flying fixed wing and dropping a raccoon wearing a winged rocket pack. Of course the raccoon should also have a parachute because we wouldn't want him/her to fall and hurt itself.

See ya at flightfest....

Speaking of Oneshot, maybe Alex, Eric, Peter, and CraftyDan can talk about their opinion on them? Maybe a One Shot programming video with Eric? That would be neat. Does Alex use the active braking on his KISS ESCs?

Thanks for putting out a new podcast despite being so busy with all of your different endeavours. And Bixler - thanks for putting in a short bit about "something technical" at the end. I listen to the podcasts for this technical info; not so much about specific products, but to learn more about different components, parts, and configuration. Some of my favorite podcasts remains the ones where David goes into in-depth discussions on motors, batteries, etc. Any chance we can have some more of these in the near future? Also, I'd like to put in a request for some tips, planes, and configurations for flying in moderate to high wind conditions. Thanks again for all of your contributions to this hobby and the opportunities that it opens up.

A cast firework plane. It launches straight up at 100mph and glides down, then explodes.
