"Here are a couple of pics of my recently completed Freshman embryo class laser cut kit. I made the wing removable for storage and transport's sake. I beefed up the nose area with 1/16" balsa sheet between the formers of the first bay after the nose block. I added an aluminum tubing motor peg to facilitate motor winding on my stooge." - Dave Hable
"Dave, I built the Freshman from the kit you provided to me at Muncie. Thank you. At 10.9 grams, I'll use it at our indoor sessions which begin in November." - Jim DeTar
"FF86 came out better than I expected and it flies. Maybe not as good as some more experienced plane makers , but it went about 40 yards on its virgin run. I wished it down, it listened.. It was headed for a trailer (that was parked illegally) and I thought it was going to crash into it. WoW- imagine how it would go if it had a tail wind!!" - Old Timer Stan
The Uwanosora flying club in Toyota, Japan held a contest in which each member built a Freshman Embryo kit. Each plane is unique in choice of tissue and decoration.
