The Podcasts are really great, whether they are FT After Hours or "The Guys"
I wish we could depend on them a bit more - I look forward to them for Fri listening, try not to feel bad if they don't arrive... : )

I think the crash story they skipped near the end was mine because mine was really long. I wish I had photos of my crashes. F.T. afterhours, keep up the good work.

What you guys do for the hobby is amazing. But I just have to wonder what time these guys on the webcast start drinking. Credability can be fleeting... so be careful... !!

Love ya , mean it!

I for one was a bit disappointed that the long anticipated "Crash story Extravaganza" started with a 40 minute review of the Solo. Particularly mind stabbing was the nearly verbatum reading of someone else's review.
I get it and enjoy the idea that the "After Hours Podcast" is supposed to be unstructured "bench flying", but I would have hoped that since you guys were finally doing the Saturday morning nothing but crash stories podcast that you've been talking about for months, you wouldn't get so far off track.
The second half of the podcast was a lot of fun, I just wished it was longer.
Sorry for the rant.

Just got interested in fpv quads and started listening to your old broadcasts. Please invite more crash stories for another crash episode in the future. I'm grading a sidewalk in civil 3d at work and I keep laughing out loud. good stuff.

No photos? The story with the nutball reminds me of another motto: no plane left behind!

Hey there Chris and the guys, If you want the before and after photo's of the 70mm EDF FT-22, check out the forum "leasons learned" sub "Not quite flight" page 3 full story with before and after photos. Had a blast hearing my crashes in the pod cast. We just had a new one I'll be sending you shortly ( had Boyscout's group buddy boxing with us. I have a cast like Josh from a nutball impact!!!) Later guys.

The PKZ FockeWulf 190-A8 crash, I nearly did the same thing with my PKZ Sukhoi 29mm. I only noticed on the very last control surface check before takeoff.

All talking at once (near the beginning) must be tough for non-English speakers don't we think?

For me, a really good podcast though, with some useful educational value. Even one or two of the crash stories were good. eg. loose receiver antenna.
