"Here are a couple of pics of my recently completed "Freshman" embryo class
laser cut kit. I made the wing removable for storage and transport's
sake. I beefed up the nose area with 1/16" balsa sheet between the formers
of the first bay after the nose block. I added an aluminum tubing motor "peg" to
facilitate motor winding on my stooge." - Dave Hable
"Dave, I built the Freshman from the kit you provided to me at Muncie. Thank you. At 10.9 grams, I'll use it at our indoor sessions which begin in November." - Jim DeTar
"FF86 came out better than I expected and it flies. Maybe not
as good as some more experienced plane makers , but it went about
40 yards on its virgin run. I wished it down, it listened.. It was
headed for a trailer(that was parked illegally) and I thought it was
going to crash into it. WoW- imagine how it would go if it had a tail
wind!!" - Old Timer Stan
flying club in Toyota, Japan held a contest in which each member built
a Freshman Embryo kit. Each plane is unique in choice of tissue and
Sometimes all it takes to get kids started building an airplane are some cool decorations for their plane.
