Snowflake wind up, rubber powered indoor/outdoor flyer tutorial.

Post

I found this in the free flight section. It is a simple, easy to build, complete with instructions, airplane that flies great! Check it out. This is right up Grandpaz alley.

I like that one Randy. Maybe a little complex for the younger set, but how about a one design FF contest for the members. Jim Z. would probably beat the pants off the rest of us.

Here is the active link to the "Snowflake". It took me a while to figure out you had to preview it first before the link became active. I think this little airplane would be great to get people going on cheap, easy, good flying, free flight models. The best part is you don't have to register it with the FAA.:lol:

Thanks for the vote of confidence guys, but I tend to just put stuff together with things that I have on hand. I seldom go into all of the details that it takes to make a really good flyer. I just have my own variety of fun.

Hi Jim, thanks for chiming in. We think you have the best way of using what you have on hand to make things work. This is kind of where this "Snowflake" is at. It doesn't take much but the tutorial is a bit involved. Like the other Jim said, it would be a good one class ship for the association to have a little simple fun, out at the field. I mean, this guy got 2 minutes out of it and it's pretty much stock! Check out the video! Thanks,

Randy

It looks like there really isn't anything to buy except the prop. If I get time, I'll throw one together.

This could be a good build along project for the younger folks and the young at heart. :thumbs:
