  1. 2012 Sympo Patron correction
  2. Aeromodeller update
  3. Looking for old Sympos



There was a typo on the rates for outside of the USA - so this is the corrected version.

Did you miss out on the 2011 NFFS Symposium? We hope not! The annual Symposium Patron Program is a tremendous fund raiser for our National Free Flight Society. To be successful however, we have to be careful to not to shoot ourselves in the foot by running a load of extra copies we won't ever sell. The additional copies of last year's edition that were available through NFFS Publications sold out in a couple of months and that left an empty spot on the bookshelves of a few Free Flighters! Participation in the Patron Program is the only way to guarantee you will get a copy of the 2012 Edition. Already in full development under the skillful direction of Editor Derek McGuckin, this year's Sympo will include the following features as well as the announcement of the 2012 NFFS Hall of Fame Class and 2012 Models of the Year.

*Advanced Hand Launch and Catapult Glider Building and Flying by National Cup Champion Tim Batiuk

*Design Analysis of Low Drag Airfoils for F1B has been provided by Brian Eggleston & Tony Mathews

*Past Americas Cup Champion Bernie Crowe offers "Contest Implementation of F1Q Energy Limiters"

*Indoor Variable Pitch Hubs will receive double attention with "Composite Techniques" by Brent Sanborn and "A Beginners F1D Indoor Variable Pitch Hub" by Dennis Tyson.

*Gil Morris looks at Temperature Inversions and Their Effects

*Altimeters and Experiments with a Pitot Tube as part of the Favionics FX10 System by Allard van Wallene shows there is a lot more to learn than "how high did my F1A get?"

*Do you find electronics mysterious or intimidating? Klaus Salzer offers a near-layman's approach to building electronic devices from thermals detectors to timers with "Do it Yourself Free Flight Electronics"

*John Baker has prepared "Propeller Blocks -- A New Twist", a helical box for molding propellers.

*The Description and Analysis of a Computer Driven Rubber Testing Device based on the original concept of Bror Eimar has been authored by Tapio Linkasalo

*Bill Gowan will explore Indoor Glider Development and Construction

`*Claudio Bagnolo provides an analysis of an F1E endowed with a Low Drag Airfoil In "The Universal F1E"

For a minimum Patron contribution of $55 ($63 Canada and $71 Foreign) you will receive a copy of this year's Symposium directly from The Printer as soon as it comes off the press. Any amount over $25 is tax deductible.

The deadline to be included on the Patron List in this year's Sympo is July 4, 2012. Remember, the days of overprinting the Sympo are over and availability through NFFS Publications won't be a sure thing. This is the ONLY way to guarantee you will have the 2012 Symposium in your resource library. So, don't put this off! Complete the form at the bottom of this letter, place it in the envelope enclosed and MAIL IT TODAY! Checks and Money Orders should be made out to "NFFS". We accept PayPal too! Thanks in advance for your generous support of this great program.

Looking for Old Sympos (2009 and 2010)

Hi Roger.

I am interested in getting hold of a secondhand copy of NFFS Symposium
books for 2009 and 2010 in good conditions as I believe the originals are
out of print.   Preferably from a U.K. source to save on postage but any
source will do. My e-mail is  <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> or Tel: 01400 230764.
(Grantham. Lincolnshire. UK. )  Many thanks.

Walt Hodkinson ( Hi Pauline and Bernie )
