Watched the Neat fair episode this morning and listened to the Podcast this afternoon. I gotta say, I love the honesty and integrity represented in both. Your opinions are straight from the heart and only tempered by your desire to keep this family friendly. Well done!!!
But, I gotta say, I'm still waiting for those Neck Straps, Josh. ;)

It would be great if these podcasts were every week. Don't stress so much about the time and format. Just listening to you guys talk about what is on your mind is refreshing and entertaining!

Excellent content and flow again but sound quality letting you down. Constantly distorted high volume, maybe an over reaction to the low volume on Ep 1?. Still, couldn't stop listening. Keep it up.

Noticed the same audio issues on both episodes. Maybe it's time to implement a bit of compression?

Cathead on September 25, 2013
I think compression was added to this episode due to the volume levels not peaking every time someone laughed or spoke loudly. Simply a gain issue at this point. Much better than the first episode. They'll get it spot on before long.

I thought the sound was much better. Enjoyed the show as well. I like just listening to the stories and not always being bombarded by tech talk.

Hey FliteTest Team,
Loving the podcasts so far! Keeps me awake on my long drives here in Melbourne, Aus. I had a question for you. I assue that it is not just a happy coincidence that Josh Bixler and the Hobbyking Bixler share their name. How did the opportunity to have a plane named after you come about Josh?
Thanks

First plane of mine was a Firebird, flew it for months, even though it was broken... Worst crash, Generic Trex 450, when the servo failed. Still have pieces of the rotorblades stuck in it's foam box. Don't have the heart to buy a servo and some new rotor parts, so in it's box it sits.

Thanks for sharing your failures!!! I am just getting back into flying, I always love the building part of the hobby and with your swappable I am back building again, thanks so much. I am getting closer to a successful flight, so thanks and I would love to build a swappable warbird.

I want the Corsair swappable! The Corsair was my first kit plane that I built. Spent hours on the thing and painted it all beautiful before ever flying it. Needless to say it never flew more than about 20 seconds at a time, and eventually got the the point where I had to declare it un-repairable anymore. A swappable Corsair might redeem some of those hard loss feelings.

Nice job on the second podcast. My first rc was a Lazertoyz Lazer. Dan of Lazertoyz built me the plane and came out to the Burton fair grounds to show me how to fly it. Got a fair amount of time on it then after so many crashes I retired it.
Another reason I like the podcast is it helps us connect with you guys. Which is so important in building a relationship with your family.
Thanks, nick Coilais.
