"Free Flight Supplies" site continues to develop. The philosophy is to keep the site simple allowing for easy maintenance and fast loading. Navigation is simple with each page being linked back to the home page. For improved viewing the 'Index' frame left will allow you to both see a particular item then move to other pages at the same time.
The theory behind this operation is to supply items which are needed by the free flight modeller or any other modeller that cannot be readily obtained through the normal model shop outlets. I also believe in the builder of the model principle so what you will find on my list are components, plans materials etc.: rather than ATRF stuff. I supply the goods by mail order in the main. I have built this little operation alongside my flying activities and many of the items listed are used or have been developed and tested by myself. I am not a shop although but if you are passing through Norwich you are welcome to call in, a quick telephone call first to check that I'm at home will save a wasted diversion.
You can also find me at major free flight events - look out for the red and yellow "Free Flight Supplies" flag. As well as U.K. events I also attend a few of the major European free flight events. I take a selection of my range of items with me to most events so give me a look and make a purchase. Check my newsletter which contains my proposed movements. The range of items is now so vast that it is not possible to bring everything so to avoid disappointment please give me a call. Special deliveries can be made at events let me know your specific requirements so that I can arrange, if you order this way please remember to turn up to collect.
We now have a page on Facebook. Click here
I am always trying to extend and develop the range of items sold, so suggestions for additions please? presently I'm trying to deepen the range rather than rather than widen into new lines. Click here to send your thoughts and ideas. I look forward to hearing from you. If you know where I can obtain suitable items, or have something that I could distribute please advise! Keep in touch for additions and changes to the list (the list is usually updated each quarter). The cost is £1.00 plus an A4 (minimum size) SAE for £2.50. The latest hard copy price list and catalogue is number 82 dated February 2013, or down load a list see below. I try to keep the range of items stocked consistent. However, the specialised nature means that sizes and specifications may be subject to unforeseen changes. If there are any improvements to the products that you consider to be useful please let me know and I will look into the possibilities. The weights and measurements that are quoted are a mixture of metric, Imperial etc. dependent on the source of supply - the supply measurements will be used, derived dimensions will be in parenthesis (). Remember that If I've got it then I list it! and vice versa!
If I’m out of stock of an item I will advise accordingly amend the charge and supply as appropriate. As and when stocks are replenished I will advise.
Over the past few years due to stable economic conditions I have been able to hold my prices steady with only the odd adjustment. However the recent problems within the Global economy is having an effect on all of our lives. Free Flight Supplies is not immune to these problems. The fall in the value of the pound sterling against most major currencies is having an effect on the price that I am now paying for some of my stock. This means that I will have to increase prices as and when stock is replaced. This will not impact on those of you on the right side of the currency equation, the biggest impact will be for my domestic customers. Please be aware in these times I may have to make instant changes. So do check the prices before ordering.
Come what may Free Flight Supplies will continue to operate!

I receive many queries, I try to answer everybody. However, please enclose an s.a.e. or reply coupon, give me a call, or send an e-mail here. Please feel free to download the list and pass it on - spread the word, it all helps! Also links to yours or any other site that is relevant would be appreciated, I will reciprocate. As time permits this list and the web site will be developed to provide more and more useful data.
To assist ordering, the list is sorted into generic types or class to which they are applicable i.e. covering material or glider, where possible I try to put in cross references. As it is impossible to pigeonhole some items, you are still advised to browse the whole list! Links across pages are provided where appropriate. Or check the summary index list.
If you a browsing for a friend, thinking of a gift for a relative, or a prize for an event Free Flight Supplies is more that happy to provide you with a gift voucher to be encashed by the bearer for any of the products on the list.
I'm trying to make my contribution to saving the planet so I will send stuff in reused packaging materials, tubes, boxes, jiffy bags, glass jars and envelopes whenever possible. Remember to let me have tubes back for reuse OK?
Although I try hard not to make mistakes on these page there are errors that slip through from time to time. If you spot one I would be most grateful if you would point it out. Also, if you find any of the links broken please let us know so that they can be fixed.

POSTAL - ARRANGEMENTS
All mail order items are sent via the national postal authorities. The authorities place various conditions on goods handled. The size, kits and in particular the length, is restricted to, in the main, 90cm. FFS products are tailored to suit, this restriction precludes the sales of longer lengths of the thicker grades of carbon sheet. However some of the thinner grades of carbon can avoid the additional postal charge by being send rolled. If products arrive damaged or you believe they may be lost in transit please advise immediately. I try to recycle packaging whenever possible so mailing tubes, jiffy bags, glass jars and boxes, etc. are always welcome just ask for a refill! Large or odd orders may fall outside the scope of my standard list of charges, please get in touch and we will sort the best option for both Free Flight Supplies and yourself.

Prices are in Pounds sterling GBP, foreign currency conversion will be at the rate pertaining at the date of sale. As my little operation is carried out on a part-time basis, and as many of the goods come from overseas and/or are "special", there may be occasional delays in getting supplies to you. Please be patient. I try to send off orders by return of post. Also note that the goods may be sent in more than one package so don't panic the rest should be in the next post as in some cases the parcels follow different routes/procedures!

If you sign on for the newsletter you will get advance warning of the dates when I will be absent. Remember there is only me and I do have other calls upon my time!
