In today's episode we have a special guest from Team Hitec! Many of you probably know Nick Frederick also known for his decal hobby/business nachocheese.com Nick tells us a little bit about how he got into RC and his early adventures in 3D flying. We also discuss little bit about his involment with Team Hitec and his new decal design projects with Aerobeez.


When you are in RC for a while or are just getting into it, definitely the most eye catching of any other kind of flight is probably 3D flying.
There are so many awesome maneuvers, smoke is often involved and demonstrations are always crowd favorites. We discuss a little bit with Nick on how he eased into some more advanced flying and the best ways to get introduced to that side of the hobby.

Designing your own RC airplane can be one of the most satisfying experiences in this hobby. Today we talk about some things such as: why design scratch builds? There is so much great "ready to fly" stuff out there, why bother with your own creation? Where does the idea for a design start? What programs are best? What are some common problems you find once you take the airplane out for the first time? And much, much more!
