Free Flight resources

Along the line of what they did over in the HLG forum I thought it might be a good idea to start collecting a list of all of the useful Free Flight links out on the web. The web is rich with free plans and information and it would be nice to have a collection in one place.

This link to an Australian site is a good start but I know that there are dozens more.

If you know of any please share with us.

The Flying Aces Club has a new site, not many postings yet but let's see if we can change that, The FAC is the main driving force behind free flight scale models, here's the link.

Here's a good one.

My club website.

Peck polymers web site.

I think all the ones I've laboriously collected are links on the Aussie site first posted so that's that done with .

JCastle, your awesome! This is just what I've been waiting for! In addition to fueling my interests, you provided some valuable F1D resources I believe I can use for the Science Olympiad I may be participating in! I GREATLY appreciate it! Great idea!

free flight sources

theres a lot of materials in this free flight and rc hobby.

right now i'm into peanuts, dime scale, stick models, ministicks,
ezb, and trying to convert those little cars into rx plane.

i've just been into this hobby for a little over 2 months and
the closest hobbyshop doesnt even sell rubber bands.
most of the materials I have came from local department stores
besides the balsa. So my first scale models were covered in walmart tissue. i bought guillows sheet models for the balsa wood. then i went to the hobbyshop and picked up some 20lb / ft^3 1/32 next time i took some scales. my first ministicks,peanuts and and ezb are made with wood from guillows jet stream wood
and the ezb covered with that tissue from walmart that looks like
polymicro. funny eh. it flies really well considering. i guess i have gained experience. now that i have learned a little there are so many things scattered out at different shops. where is the best place for getting 4-6lb wood , quality rubber, covering material, gears for pager motors and n20s, props for rubber and electric( i can make these but it would be nice to get some to compare the performance) lithium polymer batteries, micro recievers (for guided rubber powered planes in this forum of course), etc...

here are some places to buy materials that Paul Bradley turned me on to.

A very good source for rubber and props is Peck Polymers. You
will find their web site at

Lone Star balsa has a web site and provides very good wood
at a fair price. You will find them at

here are my favorite free plans and howto places
I know they are covered in the free flight plans thread
but i'll post my favorites any way

this one too
some pistachio plans there

does anyone else know of any other pistachio plans?

i know you could just scale peanut plans down but i would like to
see more pistachio plans that poeple have designed for pistachio scale. i like small models they use less wood and i have lots of 1/32 sheet at the moment.

This site has some very nice W.W. I scale ff models. Nicely laser cut, excellent wood selection, all the bits and pieces (rubber, prop, tissue, wheels, vacuformed parts, etc.), and very reasonable prices for the quality...

I bought 5, and the only problem I faced was which to build first!
