Last page has most recent photos with production parts. Some of the early ones are prototype parts.

Great podcast as usual guys. With a bunch of things on the horizon as a household, my hobby budget is almost non-existant. And that's fine... until I saw that ASW-20.... a lot of childhood memories watching those streaming water and crossing the finish line with the wings bent like a bow! Always had a soft spot for those planes, and always wanted a large scale model of one.

Usually the motorglider "conversions" take away from the lines, but this one looks pretty good actually. Looks from the pictures to take quite a bit of a "toss" to get going, would have to upgrade my flying buddies to get that in the air. :)

Just watched the video for the ASW 20, there is an optional launching dolly available that would work pretty well... Hmmm...

I've been looking at the Jeti 14 Basic and I thought about since they're really nice radios and $800 with the option of adding some features isn't out of the realm of my limits.

The big thing that I have question about is since from what I can tell, a lot of EU pilots use some kind of strap or tray. I don't use either and both my X9303 and 14SG are comfortable to hold with my hands alone with my thumbs on the sticks and my pointer fingers between the top outermost switches.

So are the Jeti's comfortable to hold or are they more for someone using a transmitter strap or tray?

I haven't spent any time holding one, maybe Nick will chime in. The DS series is the "hand held" one though, the DC is the "tray" version.
