1970s AMA Freeflight Video

Unread post by DoverSail » Wed Aug 26, 2020 1:32 pm

I know a few people here, especially John O., are great fans of free flight models. I happened across this excellent and very retro AMA video about the different types of free flight competition and the planes and people involved and thought that Some of you may find it interesting.

The music is really good too!

https://youtu.be/Mxr8kfqTDYU this video at 43:55 also features vintage slope soaring in the 1970s! I wonder if anyone in this club has any of these modes today... presumably this was still the era of AM radios?
