Josh and Eric had the chance to meet Joshua and Hope Finn, and were even invited into their lovely home to see Joshua's passion for Free Flight.
These ultra light planes (Some weight 3.2 ounces, and possibly lighter!) glide around the living room with ease, but be careful if you try to catch them!
Heres the premiere competition plane, the F1D. These are known to fly for more then a half hour at a time.
The F1D is a wonderful plane to see fly if you ever get the chance to experience it first hand.
As much care goes into the build of these planes, also goes into the engine. Rubber batches come out each month, but it is known that the May 1999 batch has the best performance for your plane.
If you've never seen these planes before, IndoorNewsAndViews.com has every known article on Free Flight published. If you need any build plans and things of that sort, head over there.
And to get the correct covering for your wings, look for SuperUltraflim. Its very thin so be careful when handling it.
Hope Finn is quite the builder herself, holding her own against Joshua's planes.
Joshua even has a scale replica of a Microplano Veloz, with small tweaks of his own in the design.
Some of these planes props spin so slow, that it feels like your watching in slow-mo! It's simply amazing.
