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

Let's face it. Most of you guys rather look at some interesting models than pilots on podiums. ...Continue Reading

What the RC community likes, is not necessarily interesting to what the general public finds interesting. A couple of months ago, I submitted some of my RC model videos at www.metacafe.com.

It is interesting to see, how various videos are rated and some of the comments are quite funny. Some videos have not been shown in my gallery or blog.

Have a look at the same video and compare ratings and comments :

Although pretty tough, my Gemini suffered quite a bit of damage today during a freak accident. Can you guess what happened - judging by the pictures?

Last blog entry for 2006.

You have seen pictures and videos from previous Air Shows in my blog. Next year we will already see the 6th. International Euro Model Air Show in Rheidt (near Bonn/Germany) from 03.-05. August 2007, and this event seems to get bigger and better every year. For the first time, we should also see some pilots from the LMA (Large Model Association) on our airfield. Here are some "appetizers":

Flying Indoors started early in Carvin/France. They celebrated their 10th anniversary with the first F3P competition officially scheduled in the FAI calendar. Top pilots from Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany and Netherlands competed against some of the best French Indoor pilots.

I have been visiting the event at Carvin for the last five years (2002-2006) and the German team always enjoyed the trip.

Here are some pictures of models used in the competition:...Continue Reading

With over 100.000 visitors, the modell-hobby-spiel in Leipzig is one of the most popular model fairs in Germany. The facilities are excellent, as you can see from the pictures. It was here, where I started to get a taste for Indoor flying in 2000, and after 3 years as pilot only, I am organising the Slowflyer Show since 2003.

Here are some impressions from this years event.
