Free flight aeromodels

I started my aeromodelling in Savonlinna year 1975. Me and my friend Antti wanted
to build a control-line aeromodels. We visited Savonlinna aeromodelling clubs
clubroom in Heikinpohja where we met Ossi Kilpelainen who made us changed our minds
and build first some free flight gliders.
Yet I haven't had time to build control-line model but quite big amount of
free-flight models :-)

Still nowadays I think that free-flight sport is one of the best ways to spent
my freetime.
When you are having a good competition you don't remember costs of
driving a car more than 2000 kilometers per winter or buying of quite expensive
carbon-fibre materials for building your models.
