If you are interested, you can check out Andrew's book at: launchingpaper.com
In this episode Josh, Austin and Peter talk about the Flite Test Mighty Minis! We wanted to make some seriously durable planes for the indoor season and I think we succeeded.
Jen Bixler also took a moment out of her busy day to join the podcast to discuss some very exciting developments on Flite Test Store apparel! Some really fun stuff is coming by early December! We also talk about Peter's insane Heli-Carrier and how that project is coming along. Thanks for tuning in.

You need to try "Model Plane Foam". It is a product that was brought to market by three RC foamy enthusiasts in Michigan. They went to Adam's foam for a paperless product. It comes in 6mm thickness in a 2'x4' form factor sold 16 sheets to the box. It costs $65 for a box shipped free anywhere in the 48 states. An equivalent amount of white Depron (shipped) would cost twice between $130 to $142 depending on the color.

So price wise (in the continental US):
Dollar Tree is about $0.25 per square foot.
Model Plane Foam is $0.50 per square foot.
Depron is about $1.00 per square foot.

The heli-carrier is an awesome idea! An appropriate name for it should be "The Hulk" :D

On the previous podcast and this people were wanting mini FPV for inside. Our local multicopter facbook page has a Cheerson CX-10 with a Boscam CM205 5.8G FPV Wireless Mini CMOS Camera all from banggood.com

Great podcast guys...and gal! Love the podcasts where we get a sneak preview of what's coming. I can't wait for the mighty minis. Really like the looks of the Scout and plan to build one for the winter/indoor flying season.

Fun podcast all! Flite Test apparel is a great idea but you should have the Flite Test crew model it on the store webpage. I can't buy a beanie until I see how it looks on Josh and Josh.
