Numbers 1 and 4 are about the benefits I see here for me. I hardly use emojis in my posts here lol. :Do_O:p Crap :poop:, ya caught me!

I know some people really fight for those first comments on a video. Me, not so much, BUT I think it's cool to do that for the community and those that want to partake in that. And on a similar note, keep doing the social media LIVE stuff. I have caught you all a time or two when you went live on Instagram..very neat! And I think additional perks like coupon codes, etc. is cool too.

I think some people really would benefit from all the perks of this service, so I say try it out and see what happens. If it don't work, it don't work. You'll still have supporters regardless.

While I do see some benefit for myself, I probably won't be able to participate right off the bat. With our new baby, money has been tight and I'll probably save my money to support you guys in other ways. Maybe when things turn around, I might try it for a little while.
Thanks so much for the kind words and the feedback basslord! Also congrats on the NEW BABY!!! shoot me a pic on a PM, would love to see the new little one!
Also, totally appreciate the support and for all you guys do! Keep being awesome!

Blessings,
Stefan

I personally don't see an issue with it. As long as your not withholding content from your normal fans.
Bring back your bi-weekly videos!! Please!!!!!!!! I miss the good ole days were we could rely on Monday/Wednesday video releases....
Nope! Not withheld AT ALL! ;) Normal videos are gonna be coming out(little bit different with holidays) but at least 1 per week or more ;)

Blessings my dude!

There are many who passionately support FliteTest and will never be in a position to enjoy the benefits of programs such as the previous founders program and now this new U Tube drive. Those people do it out of a passionate belief in the initial values espoused and not commercialism.

FT is a commercial organisation of course and all wish them well and commercial success but such programs can leave some feeling excluded for financial or even geographical reasons! I hope it does not cause any ill feelings for those who will be excluded from such offerings in the future.

It is good that you are pushing the reach of FT may it give you a vastly increased membership and customer base.

Have fun!

Not sure what "extras" were in the works for the support but I will say this.

Would it not benefit FT better to do a patreon account and link all their videos to it for fund raising?

That way people who could afford a subscription could easily do one and others like myself could contribute here and there. Just dont start spamming in videos like others have.

I stopped watching every Bardwell video after he started his pateon and went full on beg mode. Same with Stu on uavfutures. Bad enough dealing with googles intrusions but when they started cutting in with their own commercials that was it for me.

I used to be very loyal and watch every video as well as point people to their pages. When they started segregating and excluding people over extra money beyond ads i stopped so they lost me and whom ever else I would have sent their way.

DONT GO THAT ROUTE please.
I would NOT recommend Patreon for ANY sort of fundraising. There's some really shifty stuff going on with Patreon right now. A fellow podcaster of mine was hit for over $2000 worth of charges when someone reversed their donations via Patreon - things that had been donated 6 months to a year earlier - and he was hit with refunding it all back.

yeah when the founders perks came out I really wanted to help out but didn't have the funds so I felt a bit left out.

Everything comes to he/she who waits - so they say. Can you do a "get Youtube" and post it here for us mere mortals? I don't want to have to wait.:sick:

I was in the same boat. Every time I thought I had enough money to cover the founders donation and be able to live.... big bill came up. So I look at this as my way to get in on some of the founders fun.
