“The key goal in successfully flying indoors? A repeatable, reliable, power pattern!”
Try indoor FF
Long-time Radio Control (RC) and Free Flight (FF) modeler Sam Brauer has been having increasing competitive success in our indoor meets in recent years. His Golden Age Reproductions P-51 Mustang is the scourge of the Glastonbury indoor WW2 mass launch events and his RAF B.E.2c “farm tractor” is a threat whenever it flies. Clearly, Sam has figured out how to make free flight models fly really well indoors.
We asked Sam to share some of his learnings and he came through with this informative and thought-provoking article. Never one to shy away from a debatable point (whaddya mean I don’t have to build straight!!), Sam will challenge your thinking. You can’t argue with his success…so open your mind, click the link below and listen up!
One thought on “The Zen of Indoor Free Flight: A Modeler’s Take”
There’s an oversight in this article that I need to correct. The guy who taught me that an airplane needs a repeatable power pattern- that’s Rich Zapf who beat me so many times with airplanes that wouldn’t fly quite as long as mine (if I got lucky)- but his airplanes flew reliably. This ingrained the need for a repeatable pattern indoors…
