Free Flight

 

Operating free-flight planes – those with no external control after launch – is the old school form of the hobby. Outdoor free flyers launch their model aeroplanes on rising thermal currents and let them soar. Indoor free flyers use light, slow flying models launched with a rubber band, for a rewarding experience at fairly low cost.

If this type of flight appeals to you, we’ve got everything you need to get started. We stock models that are capable of consistent long flight duration in prices to suit every budget. We offer rubber-band powered model planes as well as towline gliders. Our range includes RTF free-flight model planes and free-flight aircraft kits so you can build your own from precision laser-cut parts.

Free-flight model planes tend to prioritise function over form, but we’ve got some detailed scale free-flight models that will delight realism hounds.

Popular brands of free-flight model planes include: Dumas and Keil Kraft.
