One-Design Model Competition

Each year the NFFS sponsors one or more One Design Events. It has typically been a small to medium sized Nostalgia, or near Nostalgia Era gas powered model. For example, the Starduster was previously a "NFFS One Design Event" model though it was not a Nostalgia model.
By picking a "one design event" model at a national level, fliers may choose to compete in local and national "one design events" for that year sponsored by local clubs and the NFFS (at the NATS/USOC).

One Design events will be flown at the following contests: The Oakland Cloud Dusters NorCal Contest, The NFFS/AMA Nationals, The NW FF Championships, The San Valeers Nostalgia Championships. The winners of this competition at each of these meets will receive cash awards. All competitors will receive a participation certificate.

Any CD who wishes to sponsor a One Design Competition at his FF meet should contact Bill Vanderbeek for further information. Bill can be reached at

Build a "NFFS One Design Event" model for this year or next and join the fun!
