Chris and Andre, what a great job you guys do with the podcast! AH captures the very soul of FT in my humble opinion. Thanks for the new products info.

And congrats to Andre for finally flyng his shelf queen warbirds in the last month.

Almost ready for the last 2 warbirds. Just got some new props for the Corsair ;) And then I hope to fly the P-40 and Spitfire again before winter.

Great Podcast! Hopefully better luck with the Corsair on the next flight. Also, Andre, the stock Durafly P-51 Frankie can be flown stock on 4S, if you minimize time at full throttle. The stock ESC is 35A, peak amperage on 4S is only around 40A :). Also, if you guys are looking for a really nice flying EDF, take a look at the Freewing 80mm F-86. Yes it's big, heavy, and 6S, but it is the single best flying warbird I've ever owned!

The way it looks is nothing compared to how flies! That airplane opened the gate to EDFs for me. My latest is the twin 80mm F-14 Tomcat. Just be aware that the F-86 needs a runway or very short grass to take off. I flew mine from a grass field for a while, but I could only fly the day after the grass was cut..

The Durafly is still around, but it could use a bit more power.. Maybe drop in a nice 12 blade setup? The 90mm Ready2Fly Venom is also fantastic, but pricey.

Congrats Andre! Do you guys know about http://www.healthydrones.com You need to download your flight logs then upload them to their site. It gives lots of useful information on things. You can even upload from the dji app. Once you get your flight log in healthy drones, you can click to download the kml and look at your 3d flight path in Google Earth.

I saw a Blade Theory in person day. Well in a display shelf.
Would be neat to fly one for sure.
