JOE NALL WEEK

May 12, 2022 - May 20, 2023

 

Fred Towler was showing Rob Watson how to set the Motor Brake on the ESC of his hand launch model. Rob thought all those new to electric R/C's might want to know about this great way to help control the number of broker prop's during belly landings. Fred said not all ESC are set the same way but most have this option somewhere in the setup manual. Fred was nice enough to find this video about setting Motor Brakes on ESC's for us.

You can find the Video Here

Another great tip Thanks Fred!

Stephen also sent us this email and a link to a very interresting interview with Tom Riley.

I visited Florida this past Thanksgiving. We were there a few days in Titusville, home of the Kennedy Space Center. Chrisie, my fiancé told me about the War bird Museum based in Titusville. We visited and while there, I saw a man I thought I recognized and shortly after I saw the P-82(Twin Mustang). I knew right away the man I recognized was Tom Riley, known for restoring WW2 bombers. The p-82 is a restoration Tom and his team completed and is the only one still flying today.  It was amazing to see the plane completely restored, like stepping back in time. Tom is an interesting guy to talk to and is always willing and ready to talk about restoring the P-82. I learned a lot while there. Tom does take the plane to various air shows throughout the year as well.  I thought you might want to post this on our site in case any members find themselves in Titusville Florida and would like to see a unique piece of history. 

It's a great interview you can find it here

Thought for Today

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. "
