The thirtieth BMFA Free-Flight Forum will start at 10 a.m. on Nov. 23rd, the day after the BMFA AGM, at the Hinckley Island Hotel, A5 Watling Street, Hinckley, LE10 3JA and it looks like being another well worth attending. You can make a weekend of it by going to the AGM, enjoying the dinner, meeting other flyers in a relaxed atmosphere and then following it up the next day by catching up on the developments, techniques and aerodynamics of today’s free-flight.
Among the topics and speakers will be: Dave Phipps on Flying Sites for Free Flight, Andy Hewitt on The New Kit Scale Event, John Thompson on Classic Power Models, Trevor Grey on Taking the Mystery out of F1Q, Mike Woodhouse on Electronic F1Bs, Ivan Taylor on Revisiting Rubber Scale 55 Years On, Roy Vaughn on Experiences with Electronic Timers, Alan Jack on The Cursed S – Why Won’t It Keep Going Up? and Mike Woodhouse on New Ideas for the F1 Rules.
Lunch will be available and the finish will be at around 5 p.m. The cost for the session will be just £9, with proceeds going towards the expenses of the teams that represent us at World and European FF Championships. Pre-booking will ensure that you get a seat, so send your cheque, payable to ‘BMFA FF Team Support’, to the BMFA office at 31, St. Andrews Road, Leicester LE2 8RE.
