  vi.      Mike would be awesome for you to interview about what he does and how he does it.

vii.      His techniques have to be awesome for model building and could really help us in our own building.

  viii.      Last, he may be hard to get in contact with though. If you could, I am sure it would be worth it.

I would be interested in listening to an episode with part of that time designated for discussions on all things FPV. 

It is a tender subject for many AMA pilots, but whether you like it or not, it is a fast growing segment of our hobby that is not always given a fair, unbiased venue for discussion... Especially since the whole FPV NYC flight.) 

Two persons I think would bring a wealth of information to discuss, would be Sentry (founder of FPVLabs, and local to Atlanta) and IBCrazy (he makes the best antenna's on the market, and a large portion of FPV'ers source their antennas through him).

Topics could include:
-Safe FPV procedures for safe flying.
-Equipment needed.
-Airframe suggestions (wing/easy star/sky walker), and pro's and con's for each design
-How to optimize your system for best picture and range.
-Possible FAA regulation.

Keep up the great work fellas; you all are doing a wonderful thing for our hobby by broadcasting this show.  Thank you for all your effort!
