Good deal, I was wondering if and when this week's podcast was coming out. Thanks a bunch.

Nice review guys. I thought your comments on the Sport Cub were right on. I have been flying mine for about 3 weeks now and have had remarkably similar experience with it. You are not alone on your thoughts on pavement landing with the stock tires. It was very difficult. After about 3 flights I changed them out for a set of 2 3/4" light weight foam wheels. It makes a HUGE difference. Almost no bounce and no ground loop tendency. I had some with the white hubs and they look great with the paint scheme. Your comments about elevator effectiveness with the flaps down are also just what I had been thinking. I just increased the control throw and can't wait to try it out.
Thanks for the great suggestion.
Also, I see the Parkzone SU29MM is available to order as of today. I can't wait to here your thoughts on it. I was planning on it for my next model.
The upcoming Eflite Adagio aerobatic motor-glider also looks really cool. Add that to the review list also.
Keep up the good work

Ah Chris that made my day. Thanks for the shout out and all the hard work you are doing to give us something to listen to.

As luck has it. Here is the article about the grub screw coming off the tricopter.

It is still grounded but I'm busy getting a bomber built up for my son and I to have fun with.

Good podcast BUT I personally would have liked a description of the Parkzone Sport Cub at the beginning. I don't think that you should assume that everyone would know.

Hey guys. Love your show. But don't spend so much time on problems with the show. Just get down to the subject matter at hand.

One last thing. How about posting videos of the planes you talk about. The sport cub is one of my interests. It would be great to see how it lies

Thanks for all you do for the rest of us.

I love your show guys, the podcasts are awesome to listen to when building or on my commute to work! I think the review is pretty solid, maybe even a bit too much in detail about how to get an ESC inside the fuselage for example...

Oh and Chris, let Wayne talk a little bit more, it became a bit of a monologue at some point ;)

The best time to listen to all your podcast is when i am building and rebuilding my quads...like now, taking a break...video is too distracting, i burnt my fingers (yes "s") soldering when i heard something exciting watching the Flitetest youtube videos.

Changed prop on mine from the stock 9x6 to an APC 10x7. Better vertical without having to upgrade the ESC as you would with the 10x8 prop that Chris put on his. Amp draw with 10x7 is only .4 amps more at 18.6 amps. A good compromise for those of you that don't want to change ou the esc.

Could you do a review on the ParkZone VisionAire as well? It's been around for a while, but I haven't seen a good review on it yet.

I love to listen to reviews like this with lots of hands-on experience and even some tuning and hop-up ideas. Excellent work!
