SKU: V-3-BuildingIndoorModel

The goal of this DVD is to introduce beginners, age 12 and up, with no previous experience, to free flight in a way that enhances their chances of success. The vehicle for this is a rubber powered indoor model that has been updated to meet the specifications of the 2015 Science Olympiad program. Mark Allison, the designer and instructor in this DVD, is both an experienced modeler and a teacher who works with youngsters in building and flying free flight models. He teaches model building classes to newcomers ranging in age from 12 years through adult. The NFFS and the NFFS Foundation hope to involve as many young people, parents and other adults as possible in free flight. DVD Table of Contents: 1. Model And Terminology 2. Tools 3.
