Who Are We?
We are builders and flyers of simple, rubber band powered, free flight model airplanes who teach kids to build and fly these planes. This site is for us to put our teaching online, to share our knowledge with others who want to build and fly such planes, or teach them. To learn more about the individual contributors, click the Contributors page tab above.
What is Here?
We write articles and reports on a variety of topics related to simple model aviation; building instructions, flying experiences, teaching experiences, guides for teaching, contests, materials, sources, kit reviews, technical topics and anything else we want to share on our subject. We invite and respond to comments and questions from readers.
How to Find Things
EndlessLift consists of two kinds of posts. The blog posts are like diary entries, telling of the model airplane related activities of the contributors. The article posts discuss specific topics in detail. Some of them will focus on a general topic while others will give detailed illustrated instructions for building particular airplanes or pieces of equipment. The most recent posts are listed in a box in the right column of each page.
There is a box after each post for readers to comment or ask questions. The most recent comments are listed in a box in the right column.
There are several ways to navigate the site. Clicking on a category will bring up a list of posts for that category in reverse chronological order. Click the bars at the bottom to go back or forward. Click on the title to open the post. All posts will be listed in the “general” category, so that is a good place to scroll the entire list of posts to get an idea what is on the site.
Posts are also tagged with a model name to indicate a type of airplane. For example, the three most popular beginner model airplanes are the AMA Cub, the Denny Dart and the Squirrel. Clicking on one of these names in the Models box in the right column will bring up a list of all articles about that plane, in reverse chronological order.
