Hi Guys,

the title may sound a bit strange, but as there will be another German Indoor Aerobatics Championship in October, I think it is appropriate.

Despite being an "Open Championship" only 15 pilots registered, i.e. there were noticeably less competitors than usual.

The F3P-AP class was won by Christoph Lausberg, who already demonstrated the potential of his HELIX design at Wall-Halla (NL). Second place went to Dennis Horn, who had no new model, but used his old MANTA, as did Markus Zolitsch who came third. All top three pilots are members of the DMFV Indoor Team!

Coming fourth in his first year of F3P-A competition is a great result for one of the youngest pilots, Karl-Ernst Overdick (12). Kai Heuzeroth und Tjark Schwartau also showed great improvements, coming 5th and 6th. Seventh place went to Nico Strebel (SUI), the youngest competitor at 12 years of age.

Sergej Glavak achieved a respectable 8th place with his new monowing design and Alan Goljevscek (SLO) came 9th with his SPARK.

It was extremely tight between 6th and 8th place with only 0,05% between competitors.

Kai Anderl made it into the Top Ten with the second of three VANGUISH's used in the competition.

Place 11th to 15th - see chart.

The first Model Fair of the 2009 season, where the public gets to see the new models. This was the last time for Sinsheim, as the fair will move to Karlsruhe next year.
