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.Jeffry WorshamParticipant
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.James HowellParticipant
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.
Contact me via PM here regarding what we discussed via message.

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.John LindbergParticipant
Ok, thanks, I posted over there.nffs-adminKeymaster
Yes, sadly, I think we’ve been outmoded….
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.
