I would for shure love to fly with the Go One 7, but I didn´t expect it to be possible

But I can see the you all had a very good meeting, and it must be a great opportunity to learn F5B from Guntmar and Heiko

If you do it next year again, I will certainly try to join you.

I'm sure Ralph meant everybody could fly his own model on the F5B or speed course...

yes, every pilot used his own model.
but I had the go one 7 into my hands for intensive spying for the details
and guntmar and heiko answered all my questions.

a go one 3 p.e. was for sale there.

also very interesting: rolf strecker and uwe plettenberg and marcial knuth (kontronik) have been there.

it is planned to repeat this meeting next near, because we all had such a lot of fun there....

Team F5B.nl went there...or did you already notice the bright orange F5B.nl shirts?

It was a great day. Excellent weather, great location, good people, good atmosphere, good food etc. Lot's of things to see, lots of people to talk to. We planned to go home by 17:00.....but left at 22:00.
A great opportunity to get some laps in under the advice of Heiko and Guntmar. These guys are very friendly and helpfull. For us, as beginners in F5B, it was excellent.

I brought my ProSpeed radar gun, which got a lot of guys motivated to do some speed passes. Fastest was the Eisvogel, radared at 415kph.
Very interesting the 150euro speed plane. An initiative setup by the Germans, to get more folks into speed-flying. An foam/carbon/balsa wing, wooden fuselage, outrunner up front and 6-8S. Affordable speed! Radared one at 350kph on it's third flight.

Over all - best people, not only good

It´s really easy to organize such an event when you have in mind really Ampere addicts are commin.....

By the way, we really had lots of fun although i had sevaral amount of work, but after all some real impressive things kept in mind.

Such as - F5B guys are really gentle persons, especially Guntmar and Heiko, helping in any way you can think about.

Interessting setups, 220/42, 220/37 P4 on 5s, Outrunner sixpack sound generating

And, of course - our Team f5b.nl - the best ones - unbelievable arriving after a whole night trip and leaving in the night - fun and power nonstop - respect guys !!!!! BTW many thanks again in the name of Seb you measured with the heli... now he has a real value for our heli-meeting on 26/06 same place

And indeed, the 150 euro-dollar speed machine is very impressive, although it is really simple and clean built and designed - really fun machine.

Also funny result of the meeting was - Speed WR holders can also do clean and impressive labs on a f5b course

So after all, as a result i´ll have to modify my hangar a little bit, not only a voodoo as a fully molded plane so far... perhaps a f5b to do some contests if they´re in the region, or a funny outrunner setup in a excite - rmemeber, the "sixpack" was only on 4s and a 14,5x14 - should easily fit in an excite
