The new 2013 BMFA Free-Flight Forum Report has just been published. It’s the 29th year that these Reports have been produced and this one is packed with useful information on new developments in a wide range of free-flight activities, as the following contents list shows.
John O’Donnell, an Appreciation, by Andy Crisp;
A Knotty Problem (Rubber Winding), by Peter Hall;
Stability of Scale Indoor Free Flight Models, by Andy Sephton;
The Role of Radio Transmissions in Free Flight, by Stuart Darmon;
A Propeller Copying Mill, by Peter Brown;

Around (Model Aircraft) Construction in 80 Seconds, by Neil Cliff.
In addition there are plans and articles on six of the most successful free-flight models of 2012.
The UK price is £12.00 including postage; to Europe it’s £14 and everywhere else £16. Sales of the Forum Reports help to defray the heavy expenses of those representing Great Britain at World and European Free-Flight Championships.
Cheques should be payable to ‘BMFA F/F Team Support Fund’ in pounds sterling, drawn on a bank with a UK branch; you may also order by credit card, which is a lot easier (and cheaper).

2012 Control Line World Championships Medals. In a tense and closely fought Championship, the F2A Speed Team of Ken Morrissey, Peter Halman & Paul Eisner took Championship Team Gold. This is the 15th year in succession that the GBR Speed Team has won the Team Gold medal, making it eight World Championships and seven European Championships in a row. The individual silver medal went to Ken Morrissey. Well done, the unique GBR Speed Team!
