Just sort of a little something that's been kicking around...
There's a lot that goes into getting a shop up and running. Most of it tedious and work-centric, but the rewards of getting a solid RC community started greatly outweigh those boring moments. We are very, very lucky to be able to live in the area that we do, and we are exponentially more lucky to be able to find footing for our shop. Couple that with the starts to some great user communities, and you have a recipe for FUN. It is very exciting to see both the flyers and drivers building up solid groups and getting out doing what they love.
I get to see this in the awesome projects folks bring through. From keychain camera video to a hand-made, smaller-scale replica of the Wright Brother's plane, there's a whole lot of talent in the area. It's nice to be able to be a positive factor in encouraging that, and I hope that it's something that continues to build in awesomeness as we grow our shop's capabilities and offerings.
