Luddite Free Flight Team

Fellow Luddites!


David Barfield says: Forget the electric motor with the electronic timer mounted in the "Sniffer".  I am pure luddite. Just the site of carbon fiber makes me (ah, what is an appropriate term) develop the vapors.
Another picture of David Barfield, looks like the vapors have caused a halo to appear over his head and is fading the tissue on his model!
