    209 Ben Harber's XB-70 Valkyrie!

    209 Ben Harber's XB-70 Valkyrie!

     
    In 2017, Ben Harber started an epic project to build a giant XB-70 in foam board. Here's a conversation about it.

    We're all for making huge, hilariously large, ambitious airplane projects to push our personal boundaries and see what's possible. With a handful of tools and some basic materials, it's amazing what we can create. Ben Harber is no stranger to testing the limits of basic materials like foam board. His Flite Test-sponsored project in 2017-18 is evidence that with some grit and determination, the boundaries between dreams and reality can collide. Here's a podcast to talk about the ups and downs of Ben's journey.

Ummm yeah, annd... yeah.

Love the old podcast with Stephan, good energy and nice format. I’ve been listing to all the old episodes. However, The new podcaster, James, needs to work on his bad speaking habits. Although he has interesting content, All I can hear when I listen to him is: “Ummm, yeah. Annd... yeah.” Ending almost every sentence with “so... yeah.” It’s similar to hearing a California valley girl who can’t stop saying “so, like”

Good when it actually comes out.

The podcast has been very intermittent over the years. It’s entertaining when it’s on though. This “rerelease” of sorts stays with that theme, as it appears it was recorded a few weeks ago, judging by content they discussed.

Definitely have a listen if you like any type of RC flying, would still recommend this to listeners. Mostly wrote the review for the Flitetest team to see, and hoping they take it in love and not as a harsh criticism.
