It has been a wonderful four years in the making and cultivating of attf.  I have had so much
fun doing what I love, meeting new people and visiting with friends once a week to basically
BS about my favorite hobby.  attf/IH has grown to be the worlds largest RC podcast in existence and without a great team, we could not have accomplished this.

For me, my hobbies have changed over the past year.  I find myself wanting to do my new found love which is riding bikes.  Not the peddle kind.  That and my oldest son is getting to that age to where I can take him fishing and other boy things.  Having me on attf is no longer
a benefit, but I feel only a hindrance to the show since my passion isn't RC any longer.
You, the listener deserves hosts that are passionate about what your passionate about.

Moose, Daniel and Lucien are all very talented RC hobbyist who are passionate about RC, 
can take the attf helm and bring you a quality RC radio show that you as a listener 
deserve.  

I want to thank all the wonderful listeners.. so much for all the great feedback and putting
up with me over the years.  You all have been very supportive.  I'd also like to thank the
great vendors in this hobby.  The vendors who have worked with attf in the past have
bent over backwards (in some cases ;) ) to support us and give us items to give our listeners.
I could not ask for anything better. 

With that, I believe attf can only get better as these hosts take the show to greater levels
and maybe new things that attf hasn't done before.

I may start another project down the road, it's in my blood.  But speaking of road..

We made a few changes to the site, take a look around. The old 'Listener Map' is now a google map. You can add yourself if you have a gmail account. Also you can export this map for Google Earth, etc. We did move all the old Frapper Map data over to the new map.

Under 'Support' is our new attf iphone/touch application link. This takes you to iTunes store where you can acquire the app. Right now the app is more a "donation" for us, however it's great app that allows you to get the shows without a PC/Mac attached. More features will be added to the app soon enough and you will get the updates free.

That's right!  You can win a full year of RCM&E Magazine.   We have 2 subscriptions to give away this month! 

But how do I win?!

We want audio content.  What that means is a mix-up of past shows.  This could be a full mixup, comedy, serious, cool ATTF music with hosts sounds, whatever you can imagine!   The full theme music can be had here.  This is for InsideHeli and ATTF. Whatever you choose.

Eg:  A 5min audio clip of Diggs saying how he lost a Radian.  etc. 

The audio must be in either mp3, wav or ogg.
If you need a good audio editor that is free, check out Audacity.
Email the clip to:  contact@allthingsthatfly.com

We will let this contest go until Holloween night.  We will then decide on two people who win the full year of RCM&E Magazine. 
Listeners will get a chance to hear these as we get them. (fun, fun)
:) 

and Go~

No InsideHeli this week.

Sorry to disappoint, but you guys will just have to go back and listen to repeats until next week. ;)

This market is vast and will easily carry an active audience who (we know) would love to have a dedicated show to their hobby.

Chris (justplanechris) has years of gliding experience. He is willing to help get it kicked started, but we will need at least 2 new hosts since Chris will not be carrying the show (that's for you to do).
We would like 1-2 experts, then maybe a new enthusiast to ask the new'ish questions and learn with the audience.

We are working on a new website structure now and will have 3 different RSS feeds for the 3 shows (both current shows and this new one).

Ideal hosts would be:
* Someone who has been doing slope, thermal, DLG for many years.
* Computer technical enough to understand skype and basic audio editing.
* Has 1-2 hours a week to dedicate to a podcast
* Speaks clearly, can keep a show moving.
* Is enthusiastic about RC and wants to help grow a network.

The second ideal host would be:

* Computer technical enough to understand skype and basic audio editing.
* Has 1-2 hours a week to dedicate to a podcast
* Speaks clearly, can keep a show moving.
* Is enthusiastic about slope/glide/DLG RC and wants to help grow a network.

If your interested, please e-mail us. We will then send the basic terms as well as talk to you over skype.

We talked a bit with Lucien Miller from innov8tivedesigns.com about a new segment for the show called "Power System Corner".  We will have the audience (you) email questions about motors, power setups, setups for helis and planes and have Lucien himself come on and answer the question directly.

These will be short 5min segments that will be interjected into the shows effectively answering these tough questions.

SlowStick Guide This is a great intro to the GWS SlowStick.  "Vanning" made this some time ago and suggests it is now horribly antiquated.  However, there is great info within this guide that I would like to help Vanning share.
Newbies Guide To the Slowstick

At this date, I would recommend the following for a good brushless slowstick (I think Diggs would agree as well).
Motor
2 Servos
1825A ESC
Prop
Prop saver
Lipos (or even the 1650's)

Thanks Vanning!
A good SlowStick thread.

Finding locals to fly with Just some quick code we did for our local community.  Basically, we wanted a quick way to find somebody to fly with at the last minute.   This allows us to talk and pick a spot to fly in.  This is setup from the BoiseRC.com website (for the Idaho'ans).  But you can take my code and modify it for a local forum group in your area.

Link to the page (no password needed)

Basically, just sing up at maps.google.com
Create an account (a gmail account).
Then click on "My Maps".
Edit up your map as you wish.
Once done, just right-click the KML link and "copy link location".
Look at my source code on my page. Copy that into a text file
Change my map link with yours (paste from the KML link)
Also change your lat / long in the code as well. 
I made each fly spot a #.  So we can talk about what number to fly at.
You can zoom in and also choose satellite view so you can see just what the field really looks like.

For the chat, I signed up with everywherechat.com
It's free.

Anyways, this is one of many ideas to find people who want to go fly with you.  Mine is really basic, but I hope it helps. Another intergration may be to use Twitter, or Jaiku for SMS.

Have fun editing the code and coming up with ideas.

Happy 4th of July!!! Due to having family and BBQ's, there will be no show this week.   However, thanks for all the wonderful support and have a great Independence Day! 

We will be back next week for full blown Heli talk!! 


If you need your heli fix, don't forget to get on the forums (helifreak, RCGroups) or youtube.


Or if you need something to do, try Desktop Tower Defense.  - caution, very, very addictive.  (scoreboard = insideheli)

Thanks~~~

We have more custom stickers coming as well.

Now there are three ways to support InsideHeli (hey, it's what makes the wives happy - and keeps ads off our site)
Check the right side bar, we have:

- Coffee
- Stickers
- The $1 donations.

Of course the 4th way to support the podcast is to tell your friends and spread the word!

Thanks for  listening, we now return you to the regular heli talk.

QuietRiot from RCgroups met up with me today.  Let me get some photo's of his heli's and showed them off for me.  We have some high-rez photo's of his Trex 450, Trex 600 and Trex 600 scale AirWolf.  Little did I know he would con me into flying my first CP.  The 600 of course!  Once I hovered the 600, the 450 was just "cute" and not intimidating.  Watching the lights and landing gear on the Wolf go with the switches on the TX is amazing. 
Here is photo's of them, and video of him flying.  (no video of my hovering). QuietRiot possesses "chris style flying powers".
However, watch closely on the AirWolf video- something goes astray.


Thanks for the good time man~

Crystals and the confusion. This is kind of a "newbie" thing, but would have helped me out recently.
Crystals.  We (in the US) use 72Mhz band for our radios receivers (RX) and transmitters (TX).  You must use the same channel of crystals in your RX and TX.  Me, being new, was not sure how to take a Mhz rating, and match that with a channel.  Keeping things simple here is a standard chart.  Most are included. This is helpful if somebody is selling a "72.110Mhz TX crystal" and your RX crystal just says "CH 16".

Chan 15 72.090 MHz      Chan 38 72.550 MHz
Chan 16 72.110 MHz      Chan 39 72.570 MHz
Chan 17 72.130 MHz      Chan 40 72.590 MHz
Chan 18 72.150 MHz      Chan 41 72.610 MHz
Chan 19 72.170 MHz      Chan 42 72.630 MHz
Chan 20 72.190 MHz      Chan 43 72.650 MHz
Chan 21 72.210 MHz      Chan 44 72.670 MHz
Chan 22 72.230 MHz      Chan 45 72.690 MHz
Chan 23 72.250 MHz      Chan 46 72.710 MHz
Chan 24 72.270 MHz      Chan 47 72.730 MHz
Chan 25 72.290 MHz      Chan 48 72.750 MHz
Chan 26 72.310 MHz      Chan 49 72.770 MHz
Chan 27 72.330 MHz      Chan 50 72.779 MHz
Chan 28 72.350 MHz      Chan 51 72.810 MHz
Chan 29 72.370 MHz      Chan 52 72.830 MHz
Chan 30 72.390 MHz      Chan 53 72.850 MHz
Chan 31 72.410 MHz      Chan 54 72.870 MHz
Chan 32 72.430 MHz      Chan 55 72.890 MHz
Chan 33 72.450 MHz      Chan 56 72.910 MHz
Chan 34 72.470 MHz      Chan 57 72.930 MHz
Chan 35 72.490 MHz      Chan 58 72.950 MHz
Chan 36 72.510 MHz      Chan 59 72.970 MHz

Aluminum carry case for your Heli! We all want a nice Align Aluminum carry case for our sweet, ever so precious heli for taking it to an event, or showing it off at a family get-together.  However they can be expensive for an "Align".  The name costs too much for me! So after much searching and digging, I have found the measurements and comparable aluminum cases that are just as nice (in my opinion) for a fraction of the cost. 

One option is the PROCASE 4 row euro CD case.  I found the size is about the same as the Align Trex 450 case.  You can choose your color as well, which is what the Align guys don't have. 
Also, check out this CD 4 row case as well on eBay. Nice, but only one color.  Here is an older used case with about the same size dimensions.

Basically, I'd rather be buying nicer heli parts than a "brand -A" carry box.  You can sticker it up, color/paint it.  I will get getting one of these and since I have access to foam, I can make my own padding inside.  Since I'm building a 300 size heli, I could even go a bit smaller.

T-Rex 450 case:
Diameter:698x203x284(mm)
Diameter:24x8x11.5(in)
