Have started work on building some indoor FF planes. Am starting with some EZB's, and going from there. The best things about this stuff is, costs less, takes less time, and can store more finished planes. Yippee.

But it is a whole different world, building not light but at almost NO weight at all. Believe it or not, a HEAVY EZB weighs .8 grams and up. My best effort so far has been 3 grams. The good guys make em down to .5 grams. Getting just about all my expert advice, from a book called: "Building and Flying Indoor Model Airplanes" by Ron Williams, it may be out of print, but is almost like a bible on the subject. Bought it back in the 80's. Made the mistake of reading it a few months ago. So of course.... a whole new world opened up....

Kinda neat to make a plane and then give it a test fly in da living room (although frowned on by others). Here are my efforts so far.
