G+ added something else called a community. It's not like your personal circles, but it kind of acts like one. I think the difference is that I don't have to add anyone as I do in circles. People can just join.
I'm also in, but must admit that that was the first time in months I have been on G+ ...
When it started, I visited regularly, but nowadays not very much (might increase now because of this initiative )
It is certainly not my intent to dilute the FliteTest forum experience. My intent is to cast a wider net to bring people into FliteTest.
Josh said in one of the interviews that FliteTest is relatively unknown to the RC community in general. And I noticed that there were healthy FPV, RC, Scratch Build, and other related communities on G+. An G+ in general tends to appeal more to the techie type person than your average Facebook member. So once we have some good content and 50 or so members to this community, I intend to send an invite to the other RC related groups to which I belong and see if we can make the overall FliteTest community even stronger.
I hope this endeavour will translate into more forum members and more FliteTest Store sales.
The park he works at holds a horror hay ride every year as a fundraiser -- a pretty big deal. It was his year to organize it, and the theme was a Zombie Safari. From all reports it was a good event, but a he was pretty scarce for a while.
