To my eye the most impressive was Sascha Fliegener's SLOW RIDE. All great to watch, though.

What kind of organizations exist in Germany for flying indoors on a regular basis in a large venue? It seems impossible to train for indoor competition since there are very few venues large enough, they are expensive, and to pay for them requires many people to be there, all wanting to fly at once, leading to mass carnage. In Canada, at least.

OMG, thank you SO MUCH for those. I agree with adamg, if you've only got time for one vid, make it the 5th from the top, and look how well he works the rudder. AMAZING! Thanx again

How cool was that air brake rudder on the Extassy? It looked to me like he had it mixed with the throttle. It opened up whenever he went down throttle. The guys flying where talented.

im at a loss!!

How are those guys getting the monoplanes to fly that slow AND at a low angle of attack? Also the throttle response is incredible!! What are the REAL weights thes guys are running and what are the prop/motor/battery combos?
Please write a bit about this Jurgen; if you would. I really want to get indoor F3A going in this part of the U.S. ... I feel like the Europeans are about a lightyear ahead of us in this stuff. Viele Danken!!

I'd like to know the same things. Motor, servo, receiver, esc, prop, battery, and weight. Amazing performances, they obviously are extremely light aircraft.

The rather bulky plane in the 6th video flys fairly slow for such a short wing span. The fuse looks to be a helium bladder. Strange plane!

Many thanks Jürgen for these nine fantastic videos. Veeeeery inspiring!

Only one more and it would be considered the new "3D Ten Commandments"

Contests Meets Etc.

Is anyone panning an F3A indoor meet anywhere in the western U.S. this spring or summer? I would like to host one here in S.L.C. Ut. in August. Any interest? I'd sure like to get this stuff happening like it is in Europe.
