Old Farts Flying Club, (O.F.F.C.)Last Updated November 15, 2003
O.F.F.C. Members meet each Wednesday morning at the Stonehurst Recreation Center, Sun Valley, CA. and from 9am, a box of doughnuts is ceremoniously consumed and models are discussed. Then we adjourn to the gym and attempt to fly them (the models, not the doughnuts :-)
All types of indoor models are welcome and there is a large field outside for informal FF and RC flying before the building is open.

Guillow's "rubber scale" meet at the "Grassy Knoll"
Black Sheep Squadron meetings are the first Wednesday evening in Burbank CA., with indoor (at a larger gym) on the second Friday and informal outdoor contests at the "grassy knoll" FF site at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, CA.
Tony and Addie Naccarato operate T&A Hobby Lobby, a local shop which is a prime hangout for the club. Tony has been a booster for the group since its inception, and continues to provide advice (and modeling supplies) to the members. His store is located at 3512 W. Victory Blvd., Burbank, CA 91505-1501. Tel: 818-842-5062. T&A carries a full line of RC, CL, and FF kits and equipment, as well as plastic models and boats.

Rubber-powered 'Stuka' and 'ME-109'
For the Guillows "500" series meet I built a Stuka and an ME-109. The '109 flew nicely, the Stuka did not, but it looked nice!
An all-balsa electric profile 'Stuka' for indoor
I cheated pretty bad on the outline so it would fly better.
I love pioneer-era aircraft. The fullsize Garcia Polyplane was not successful, but my a peanut version was. It didn't break any records but what fun to fly such an awkward-looking model!
