Welcome to our web site, the BK RC Podcast came to life in May, 2018 by Bert Kammerer and Kyle Stacy. Bert and Kyle wanted to create a podcast that delivered interesting and relevant content on a weekly basis. Whether you are a newbie to RC helicopters or a seasoned pilot, you will find our podcast informative, entertaining and fun!
