i think the interest in your website with regards to free flight is your *quest* or journey of exploration in this somewhat esoteric part of the hobby.
As nice as the successes are just as interesting are the non-successes and process towards getting the model to go.
So the web site gives interested readers some constructive insight into the journey rather than a summary of the finished project.
With regards to the projects you mentioned for 2017 i have cut+pasted some web links that are written by true experts.
I don't fly power but if i did i honestly believe i could succeed in flying a power ff model (i.e. not crashing ...)following or using there advice on selection of design, building, power, and trimming.
