    RC Afterhours Podcast 85 - Buddy It's Cold Outside

    RC Afterhours Podcast 85 - Buddy It's Cold Outside

    For the first podcast of 2021, I sat down to discuss how crazy the first half of January was but how it turned around quickly.


    Talked about some tech, YouTube and plans and ideas.


    Lots on the go and despite 2021 looking ugh, there are some nice bright spots.

    Giveaway?


     


    *** With the pandemic, the prices of RC planes seemed to go up and there were less sales.  There were less new planes released this year, at least it seemed that way.  We don't know what the governments will do in regards to rule changes affecting the hobby.  Hopefully 2021 will be better for new releases and planes being in stock.  There have been a lot of planes out of stock this year.  


     


    the virus!


     


    André’s Highlights:


    The yard challenge

    The Hangar RC link

    Diving into the sub 250 quads again

    The sign from Nat

    And still growing as a podcaster/youtuber

    2021 hopes? iNav, Fuel based flight and maybe some reviews


    Thank you to Sam, Shawn & Frank, Nat, Bill for the Dream Flight Libelle, Luis & Jon, the FT, Andrew, Crew and all the Patreon Supporters.

Great job Andre

Andre, you did a great job with the new RCAH revamp. Thanks for keeping us faithful listeners informed and not sugar coating anything. Every week I look forward to the podcast. I’ll miss Chris and Mike not being on there but at least they can come back on as guests. Keep up the great work and happy flying.
