Sometimes you just need to chat about R/C with an old friend. Thankfully, I’ve gotten to know quite a few folks that have seen, done, and are currently working on some unique aspects of the hobby. One such individual has been on the RC Newb Podcast in the early days of the show, and jumped at the chance to join me for an entertaining discussion about a variety of topics. Tim Smith, a man who has his own amazing podcast, has been on quite an adventure as of late. From speed run record attempts, TV shows, tents (yes, tents), and more, find out what he’s been up to and what he has planned for the summer months.
- Tim Smith’s TSR Speed Shop RC Podcast (with Matthew Howson)
- Be on the lookout for Tim Smith’s appearance on a TV show that should be available in September, 2016.
- Are certain tech items and advances in the world of radio-control gimmicky, or will they have true staying power. We discuss the ARRMA Nero 6S BLX with “Diff Brain“, Traxxas TSM, and more.
- Will R/C ever become a true, mainstream spectator sport? With recent news around multi-rotor/drone racing and the popularity of shows such as BattleBots, there are attempts being made to push areas of the hobby in that direction.
