aim of this site to promote outdoor Free Flight Scale competitions, rallies and
fun days. For example
the National Championships and the Eddie Riding Memorial Trophy as well as the more informal
competitions, rallies and meetings around the U.K.
If you have a Free Flight Scale event you would like to advertise please e-mail

hobby keeps me occupied and out of the Pub as most of my spare time is spent
studiously designing, drawing and building these models for months sometimes
years. It is at this juncture
that my sobriety, common sense and reason leaves me and I take on a Jekyll and Hyde
persona. I find that I have little control over an irresistible urge
to launch the model into the big blue yonder without any sort of control.
Methinks I'm not
firing on all four cylinders all the time.
The culmination of all this activity provides an intoxicating cocktail of excitement, terror and adrenaline.
When you combine all this together and add the elation of success it is
the best legal "fix" you can
to quote a certain leading exponent of the craft, this is probably the only
discipline in aeromodelling that thrives on "sarcasm and banter". So please excuse the humour,
intentional and otherwise, herein
contained as I don't want to get too serious or anoraky. After all, we are
trying to enjoy ourselves, aren't we???
