RC Roundtable

RC Roundtable is a podcast about all kinds of radio control vehicles...but mostly the kind that fly. Fitz, Lee, and Terry seem to get their hands into just about every corner of this hobby. We like it all! The truth is, we share a lot of common interests, but we each have our own specific favorites and specialties. That's probably why we have so much fun when we get together. We use the recording sessions to catch up with each other, get things off our chests, and throw around a few light-hearted insults. We start each episode with a short list of topics we plan to cover, but you never know where the conversation will go.

Fitz, Lee, and Terry are joined by Thayer Syme, Tom Cogswell, Joe Vermillion, and Dan Landis to chat about all of the cool stuff we saw.
