:-) I've been watching your youtube videos for about a year and just recently completed my builds of the FT Flyer and FT Delta, but this was my first listen to your podcast. I really enjoyed it! It was so natural, relaxed and fun. Wonderful job! Wish I could come to FliteFest. Thank you for all that you do for the community! Keep up the great work!

As for the "Tech Shops". If you in the New Orleans area, we have Idiya Makerspace http://myidiya.com/ . Maker spaces at Universities are becoming popular too. Tulane has one down here.

I tried the game and it looked real interesting.The desert has no ground, just sky top and bottom .The other fun places in the game I would like to try crash before they reach the screen. Interesting game and I like the idea but there are bugs to work out before wasting your money.

:-) Good Podcast!!! Better than normal audio. Volume levels were all about equal, which is nice for ear buds. Thanks again for all you do, Sorry I won't be able to make it to flitefest. Are you going to be doing Periscope or Livestream like last year?

:P Thank you for starting to talk about the FrSky Taranis. I was worried there for a while you were avoiding even acknowledging it to not upset your Spektrum and Graupner sponsors which would have severely lowered my respect for this great team. It's such a great radio system and I hope you can explore some of it's really powerful features to highlight the benefits of it for the the Flite Test family. Good job.

foamboard quad bodies/nose look awesome I could see a design contest happening with them. Anyhow I am glad you guys put out the versa copter because integrated power board now really is a must.

I kind of disagree with the point of the Taranis being difficult to learn. I've never owned a Futaba or Spektrum (I've used both, but never dove into the programming side) so I don't know how easy or difficult those radios are to use, but I had no trouble learning the interface of the taranis. The only thing that wasn't really intuitive for me was dual rates and mixing, and 10 minutes on youtube helped me with there. And once you start comparing the features and price to other radios with the same build quality and features etc. the Taranis is an excellent value.

I'm excited to see what you guys all think of it after the whole FT crew gets a chance to try them out.

As always, great podcast, I love listening to you guys and I can't wait to meet the team at Flite Fest.

Taranis has a great and proven case and decent hardware for the price. Where it shines tho, is the OpenTX! Nothing beats OpenTX in ease of use and flexibility!

:) +1 on the trip back to 'as the locals call it,' "the air force museum"...You need to go to the presidential and research hanger as well..Lots of stuff that has been off display there. When they open the new building, a lot of it will be seen again!

The less scripted, the better you are. With FPV, multicopters, training aids, telemetry, etc. etc. it's impossible to know what is out there. You guys live this everyday and bring it to us in your podcasts. Austin does a good job forcing you to explain the new terms you bring into the podcast.
Thank You!

I tried to use FPV Freerider a while back with my transmitter and SmartProPoPlus (which works on BMI and RCDeskPilot), but I couldn't change which channel controlled each function, so throttle and yaw were fine, but roll was on a knob and pitch didn't have a control.

:-) great podcast! I actually prefer these unstructured podcast where you guys just talk about what's going on at Flitetest. I would love to see another live Q&A/podcast at FF this year as well as a bunch of videos. Looking forward to the new planes and designs. You guys are awesome!!

SwissFreek on July 5, 2015
Totally agree. This is what I like about the podcast vs. the videos (not that I dislike those either!). I love hearing you guys just shoot the breeze, bench fly, talk about the goings-on, get distracted when Josh sees a squirrel or decides to eat a cupcake or Periscope or change his shirt. It feels like when I'm hanging out with my buddies, if we weren't all grown-ups with families that don't have time to just hang out anymore.

I challenge you guys to do an episode where you make a working space shuttle that lunches off with hobby grade engines and you can glide the shuttle back down. That would be an awesome challenge.
