You bet Steve! Some listeners would be surprised how often we have notes to discuss some of your forum post but never get to them due to our long shows. :face During this show Chris was doing his best to punish me and make me stay awake as long as possible. Friday morning there was much coffee consumed. :rolling

Shawn is a great guest. I'm considering selling my Radian pro and trying their glider instead. Dang enablers. ;)

I was at the NEAT Fair taking pictures when Mike landed the Toucan...https://www.flickr.com/photos/101490128 ... /lightbox/

I agree that the Hitec guys are a lot of fun!

Great show as usual guys. Thanks for the mention on my build thread. Unfortunately life has gotten the the way the last couple of weeks, had to work on a rental property on my days off. Still some of that to go, but I plan on getting some real work done this weekend.

The overall quality of the plane really is good. The wings are feather light and flawlessly covered. The fuselage is equally light and finished perfectly. But, there have been a couple of issues, nothing that can't be overcome. Hopefully, it will make it more interesting that the usual build thread/review where everything is peaches and unicorns and it always flies straight off the board with no trim! :)

The dynamic soaring sounded really cool.

I doubt I have the reflexes and eyes for it, but it would be neat to try.

Watched that last night. It's amazing that you can hardly even see the plane going by at that speed.

I can't get my head around the physics of dynamic soaring. Apparently they are not simple:
