Thoughts from the workbench of Radical RC. The online retailer of electronics and kits for radio control aircraft. Dave Thacker shares his thoughts and knowledge of electronics, batteries, kit design and overall enjoyment of the hobby.
I’ve got some mixed reasons for liking this guy and his podcast. He is an avid aviation and space buff. He’s also a science fiction movie buff. Outside of this show, he’s a commentator on maters of liberty. His show “The Stratosphere Lounge” contains some of that but has a lot of personal interest content.
After a short housekeeping talk about his recent videos, he covers his experiences with full scale engine failures and emergency landings, full scale sailplane experiences and idiots promoting train service over cheaper faster existing air service. I’m not against trains, the conversation is an interesting tie in to aviation. This episode contains good aviation related stories and thoughts.
This show’s format is a live recorded UStream video/audio where he’s commenting on live chat and whatever else is on his mind. Clearly a more personal project for this professional.
The Stratosphere Lounge has bubbled up among my favorite online radio/tv shows to take in. Who needs cable?
