Please find attached the results of the first qualification competition for the German Indoor Aerobatics Championship 2008. I also added pictures of the pilots with their models. As you can see, the most popular models were the Manta and the Clik.

The Indoor Fest in Prague took place from 19.- 20. January 2008. This year, some pilots travelled long distances to participate in the first Selection Contest FAI F6B (AeroMusicals) for the World Air Games 2009 in Turin/Italy.

Indoor pilots from the DMFV (Deutscher Modellflieger Verband = German Model Flying Association) competed in Prague 2004 at the first CZ Indoor Aerobatics Championship, so this was a good opportunity to go there again.

On 9th December 2007, the second round of the NL F3P Championship took place in Loon op Zand. As four members of the German Indoor Team were invited to perform some show flying "Wall-Halla style" (and to compete of course), I went there as well. It was worth the trip, because we all had a great day. A big thank you to Job Verkerke for having the DMFV Indoor Team as guests in your house from Saturday to Sunday.

Back to the basics - Control Line Flying. There are not very many competitors left doing this kind of flying, but when they meet at the local flying field, it is like entering a time warp: Model techniques, engine noise and odors from the past.

Wolfgang Mrotzek always had a faible for exotic airplanes. He initially designed the prototype for his F-35 Lightning II for a 90mm EDF, but changed to a Lambert Kolibri instead. Here are some impressions:

For my 50th birthday, my Indoor-team surprised me with a very special present. First they gave me a "3D puzzle" of the Xtreme3000 (the latest design of Martin Müller), and just when I said I would hardly ever fly such a unique model, Martin came flying into the room with the RTF version and told me those where just spare parts.

Now I have my very own model, signed by my Indoor-team, weighing 142g with AXI 2203/46 and Vortex 2/350mAh.

Thanks a lot guys!

I bought a US Spektrum DX7 to gain some practical 2.4GHz experience, only to find out, that the radio does not seem to comply with European Regulations (despite carrying the CE symbol, the peak output is way too high).

So when the Futaba T6EX 2.4GHz became available, I bought this radio and put it into a model to compete in Fun Flying Racing (FFR) - Open Class. With my standard 35MHz radio, I always had to ensure not to point the tx antenna towards the model, while the rx antenna was shielded by the drive system (Battery, ESC, motor plus cables) - quite a nuisance during racing.

RC has never been so easy. Completely troublefree with 2.4GHz and I even have the results to prove it. First place on 20th May 2007 at Menzelen, Third place 03rd June 2007 in Münster (Despite coming third, I still had the fastest FunJet - only beaten by a ProJeti - with the same drive system - and a superfast Micro-Jet).

Amazing how little is left after almost three days of filming.

The Team from the popular German TV station Pro7 put together a nice video about the German Indoor Aerobatics Championship 2007.

Of course it comes with German commentary only, and some facts are wrong, but nevertheless you should enjoy it.

Please find attached the complete results of the German Indoor Aerobatics Championship 2007. As it is an Open Championship, we also had the best pilots from the Czech Republik, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and even Finland competing. It was hard to beat the quality of flying from last year, but I think these guys did it again. Due to the increasing popularity of this sport, a team of a major TV station was there for three days!

The first Model Fair of the 2007 season, where the public gets to see the new models. The wheather was cold and windy and I might get a cold for going there.

First, some model pictures from the Indoor area:...Continue Reading
