Thumbs up Flite Test Videos: Appreciation Thread

For those of you who haven't discovered them yet, you're in for a treat. For those who have, well, consider this your Fans of Flite Test thread.

Flite Test is a fun and informative video program, dealing with all aspects of RC aviation. It's new, and innovative, with a great cast, production, and weekly quote worthy lines.

Try it, I promise you'll like it.

Threads already on WF...

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58303

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58518

and probably my favorite, while out before the show congealed officially, the quality blew me away...

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57677

I'd suggest leaving the topic specific threads for discussing just the shows they're for, and bringing all show suggestions, tips and critiques for here.

(I know, me, suggesting folks stay on topic, scary...)

Yeah, they're fairly new.

They've made more of a presence over on RCG. But they fit here rather well, since all they seem to fly is electric aircraft.

If Chad (the producer of the show) decides to enter the AP/AV competitions, you and me might as well hang it up...

It seems that Flite Test might have the opportunity to interview the president of HobbyKing, Anthony Hand.

If there's anything you might want to ask him, or want them to ask him, post it in the thread listed above.

The competition on the facebook page looks fun.

I can't get the picture to open on my phone. Otherwise I would have entered my own caption.

I see the Flite Test website is undergoing some changes.

In the video section, there's an "Underground" option. I bet that's where they let newbie Josh try to fly, and the video camera ended up buried "underground".




There's a whole lot of this though...



I want to see what they replace it with, and no, I refuse to be patient!

You forgot to mention Chad (flitetest, also the show's producer) although, since he didn't introduce himself, it's his own fault.



In the top right, you have Chad Kapper, bellow him is (I won't say dumb, I won't say dumb...) "Newbie" Josh Scott.
Top right on the smaller images is Chad again, with Michael Camenti below that.
Michael, in short is the audio guy, but sounds like he does a little bit of everything for the show.
Third down in the picture is Eric Monroe, usually seen with a camera in his hands, when you see him at all.
Then of course, on the far left of the images, is the Joshs. We mentioned Mr. Scott already, the other one is the other Josh, is the voice of experience on the show.

Bios are (for the most part) listed on the website.

These guys rule.

As a self-proclaimed web nerd I would say that the excellent production value of everything from the impeccably-designed website to the high quality video goes a long way to keep me watching.

Also, I'm a fan of the the traditional straight-man/dumb guy dynamic. It works.

Thanks y'all.

radialarm, did you check the most recent video?

Was it more along the lines of what you were describing?

WOW!

The guys did it again. Not only did they do another "REVIEW" (I still insist on calling them overviews ) but they took it to the next level.

FLAMES!

And to top it off, there was a CRASH!!!

Josh put one in.

You need to see this....



Ok, I mentioned FLAMES! Here's what happened...

The guys review the HobbyKing Quicksilver Ultralight model.

You know you've seen it if you've been to the HobbyKing website. Now you get to see it fly, well, up until "expert" Josh tries doing stunts with it...

Guys, I have been able to get my hands on an "unlisted" video from the Flite Test guys.


It's a night flying music video, and it is awesome. There's some awesome air to air flying in this one. You want to see it.

Send me a PM, and I'll give you the link.
