Free Flight Indoor - Embryo Endurance

Model airplanes that fly, that's what it's all about!

For some time I have been enjoying great success with the Embryo Endurance class of airplanes. It's a strange name for an airplane category and I have yet to have anyone explain to me why the name embryo models. However, the Embryo class of models is recognized by the Flying Aces Club as a competitive airplane, provided you follow certain Rules.

In this section of the web site I offer information and resources about Embryo Endurance Models and celebrate one of the most fun designs going.

I have designed two different airplanes that fit the Embryo class and they have proven successful and I have written an article, called Growing Embryo Endurance Models, that goes through the development of aerodynamic thinking that is present in designing Embryo airplanes.

The Sharkies Machine and the Turbo Machine are designs that follow these design principles and work within the guidelines of the Embryo class rules outlined in this section.
