Exhibit: Indoor Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplanes


For over 15 years I have designed, built and competed in the sport of flying indoor, rubber band powered free flight airplanes. These planes are built from balsa wood and powered only by a rubber band. They "Float" in the air very slowly and are only flown indoors. I would like to bring a variety of planes and set up my table and have flying demos. I would also just like to talk about the science and process of building the planes. I have also been filming a feature length documentary for the past 6 years about these planes and would like to talk about the film and the process of filming a documentary.
