Default Yet another r/c podcast...

Hey guys-

Well, on the way home from SEFF Arron and I were chatting about the ATTF podcast and somewhere along the lines a statement of "we aught to start our own podcast" was thrown out there.. However, it was mostly just a big joke betwix us.. Well, a few weeks ago Arron was up to his normal "fun" on RCG and I mentioned it again and well, we just couldn't let the ATTF and RCFlightcast guys have all the fun..

So, myself and Arron of theKM fame have started a little podcast.. Not sure how serious it'll be, but it's there..

www.therightstick.com is what we're calling it..

Thanks guys!

Will be submitting to iTunes itself soon, at the moment we're just working on more content with another show or three. Should have the next one published tomorrow or saturday... should be some fun in it, an "interesting" contest will be started with LittleScreamers "cooperation"

...also looks like Dan from MicroDan fame has agreed to be our first interviewee! (sucker!)

Good. I have been spoiled by iTunes.

Do you guys have a plan for the show, or is it a general free for all, field talk, sort of thing?

plans? we don't need no stinking plans!

I think the general idea for us is to simply have fun with it, and to try and bring out the diversity of our interests in RC. There'll obviously be a lot of what is typical, but have a pile of crazy ideas to break it up and we'll see which of those is the most fun. Like, the contest that I'll announce on the next show... there's no chance that it's every been done before

Also have some cross-promo ideas that haven't been done before (to my knowledge) that should be fun for people to join in on, and just generally want to make something interesting. The view is that if it's not fun and interesting to us, there'll be no personal motivation to keep it going.

...and if we can keep a few people even marginally entertained along the way, then I think we'll be happy with that

oh... and there will be a general un-edited chat that we plan to have where we get a group of guys on Skype and just chin-wag for a while. Such episodes will be known as "the bits box" (with explanation coming up also in the next show).

Fairly soon my little i-pod will only have podcasts on it! I like ATTF and ATTF (heli version). Anything about electric stuff is cool though.

Well.. Since it's been mentioned..

We've paired up with Little Screamers for our first contest..

Currently in the "Prize Bin" is a JS 1400 EDF motor and a fan unit...

However to find out more, I guess people will have to listen to the next show..

well.... after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, the next episode is finally up there. We had planets collide with schedules that meant we didn't get it out last week, tech hiccups that cut the interview (apologies to MicroDan on that one), lost content and generally made things difficult. But it's there in all its hacked up glory. Fans of the Simpsons may have flash-backs to the Camp Krusty episode with the over-dubbing of "Mr Black"... hopefully you can get distracted during those moments and will miss 'em all together. Or, use the scrubber on your mp3 player to listen to them over and over and have a good chuckle at our expense

The main features are the MicroDan interview, and the new competition with LittleScreamers. Have at it people.
