Learning Never Ends
Although FF’s basic concept is
simple, in execution it can be complex.
Aerodynamic design, structural
integrity, and construction techniques
are challenging for beginners as well as
experienced modelers. But much of the
fun of FF comes from meeting those
challenges, learning new techniques,
and embracing new technology.
Publications such as Symposia and
Free Flight Forum offer annual updates
on the latest thinking in a variety of FF
disciplines. Collected and saved, they
provide an invaluable reference library.
Specialty FF magazines such as Free
Flight and Free Flight Quarterly, help
keep us abreast of changes within our
hobby and sport, as do the FF-related
columns in MA. Internet sites such as
the Pensacola Free Flight Team’s Article
Index and the Hip Pocket Aeronautics
online forum and plans library, offer a
wealth of information.
