    Hello- I’m new here and thinking about flying some FF after being away from it 45 years. Can someone please point me to the approved design list for Golden Age 1/2A? I went thru all the pages in this thread and found bits and pieces as the list was coming together, did I miss the final form? Thank you

    There is no ‘final form’. The unofficial, unapproved list is continually being added to. Send me a message with your email address and I will send the list to you.

    Thanks Steve, sent you my email. Saw all the discussion at the beginning about allowing electric. Glad electric ended up being allowed as I haven’t flown anything glow in about 10 years.

    Scott,

    Just looking at the pics, it doesn’t appear that you made any structural additions to the wing. I was curious to learn if you had any issues with flutter.

    I’m new to rubber models, mainly the FAC type, I’m using Tan Super Sport 1/4″ and 3/16″ size rubber, sil-slick lubricant, I keep breaking motors while winding, anyone got any ideas what’s going on here? I follow the directions in Don Ross’s book on rubber motors.

    Sadly, this forum does not get many posts. All the action is on Facebook groups now.

    No posts for 5 months. There must be some people that avoid the Facebook FF Groups so if you want contest updates or have questions I’ll try to help.
