Default Free flight and rubber powered models

Any of you fellers into free flight and rubber powered models?

I remember my first experince in rc was with an escapemint radio. Boy I remember that like it was yesterday. I took so much pride in building that model.

Today with these monster planes acting like helicoturs and my eyesight falling to peaces, I was thinking of giving up rc and building a rubber powered free flight model.

You fellers know where I could get good information on these things?

If you go to YAHOO groups there are a couple of good forums dedicated to freeflight rubber power models . lots of great pictures. one I can think of is called FFCOOKUP. these guys all buy and build the same model at the same time and share ideas and tips as they go. go to yahoo.com and in the upper right portion of the page you will see "GROUPS" among other categories.

...gently down the stream.

I am in the same boat i.e. trying to fly rubber-powered planes. Any help appreciated.
