*** With the pandemic, the prices of RC planes seemed to go up and there were less sales.  There were less new planes released this year, at least it seemed that way.  We don't know what the governments will do in regards to rule changes affecting the hobby.  Hopefully 2021 will be better for new releases and planes being in stock.  There have been a lot of planes out of stock this year.  

 

the virus!

 

André’s Highlights:

  • The yard challenge
  • The Hangar RC link
  • Diving into the sub 250 quads again
  • The sign from Nat
  • And still growing as a podcaster/youtuber
  • 2021 hopes? iNav, Fuel based flight and maybe some reviews

Thank you to Sam, Shawn & Frank, Nat, Bill for the Dream Flight Libelle, Luis & Jon, the FT, Andrew, Crew and all the Patreon Supporters.
