Free flighter here. P30, Coupe, Unlimited Rubber, OT Rubber, Catapult Glider, Hand Launch Glider...yup, do them all. I even spent a couple of years as Membership Chairman for the National Free Flight Society and published an HLG column in the NFFS Digest for a while.

As a matter of fact, it was the boost gliders that first brought rocketry to my attention.

Same tools, similar concepts but a different method of propulsion.

Just getting back into RC airplanes after a lengthy absence. They're currently competing for space and time with the rockets...

I did R/C airplanes for a while. Still have all my stuff and I'll eventually get back to it someday.

RC airplanes for me, along with computers. I'm getting the itch for some of the new electric equipment that's come on the scene in the last year or two. On a shelf waiting its turn for construction is a Sig J-3 Cub kit (1/6th scale) that I want to electrify, and a nearly complete Sig Senorita.

Kit, I battle gravity too...

Gravity's winning...

If you check my photo album (Photobucket site for holding pictures), you'll find a couple of shots of my R/C helicopters... and a bunch of other weird stuff...

Ive done R/C gliders in the past, as well as R/C cars, but have gotten out of that in favor of more rocketry :)

Other related things are classes that I give (Flight Club) where we explore different flying things each week (air powered rockets, paper airplanes, kites, etc)

Ahh, easy for me to answer :)

The tools I have are used for all my hobbies.

Most of it is documented here ;)
