Those who fly free flight models are facing increasing problems – particularly when flying from MOD land – as SAM 1066 found out at Middle Wallop.
The BMFA Free Flight Technical Committee (FFTC) have been actively addressing these issues. They have highlighted the difficulties, held a well publicised open conference, and are now working on how free flight modelling may be allowed to continue in the future.
Even if you are not a flier of current FAI classes, if you fly free flight models, this really may affect you.

There is also a discussion on radio DT, including in a small rubber model, in the April 2016 issue of Aeromodeller.
