Hello everyone and welcome to the ParkFlyer Podcast website.  We are just a couple of normal guys that enjoy the sport of RC flight.  Over the many years that we have been flying we have experienced the ups and downs of the sport and hope we can pass along our mistakes and success and make your time more enjoyable.  We realize that our way is not the only way and hope that whatever you decide to take from our discussions will in someway enlighten you.  We have spent years trying different building styles and have had our share of mishaps and excitement.  During our stay together we hope that our podcast will bring joy and humor to your day as well as pass along some tips and tricks that you might be able to use.  Our backgrounds in Aerospace and Flight give us a unique insight into this sport and sharing our hobbies with others gives us the opportunity to give back to the sport that has given us so much.  We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to your comments and questions.  Thanks for joining us and we look forward to seeing you at the Park!
