New Show

Andre, thanks for carrying the torch forward! Great show with Alex! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Outdoorsman76 ,

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.

I love this podcast

This is the first podcast I’ve ever been compelled to financially support. I’ve based many purchases on their conversations and support for products. I feel like I’m sitting by their sides talking about flying RC in a family oriented environment. Thanks for the show guys.
