With 103.000 visitors the modell-hobby-spiel in Leipzig set another record for a three day event. The facilities are excellent and this year we even had an Indoor Night Flying Show twice a day. 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.

The two day event was actually called "Modellflug-Festival 2008", sponsored by Multiplex/Hitec, ICON and FMT, but it was foamies only.

Last weekend I made a trip to Lahr (Black Forest Region) to watch some exciting Aircombat flying. Those models are 1:12 scale and although the majority is still flying IC engines, most twins were already using electric power. At the same weekend, they also flew the so called "Gnumpf-Cup" - a pylon race event with simple, identical models and .25 motors. There is a stock class (standard motor/muffler) and an unlimited class (any .25 motor/tuned pipe).

Please find attached the complete results of the German Indoor Aerobatics Championship 2008. As it is an Open Championship, we also had pilots from the Czech Republik, the Netherlands, Austria, Lithuania, Slovenia and even from Finland competing. It was hard to beat the quality of flying from last year, but I think these guys moved it up yet another notch. Unfortunately the models from the competitors from Finland got lost in transport and they had to fly with borrowed models. Some pilots also escaped the photo-shooting, so I had to use pictures from the qualifying.

Here are some video clips:

The first Model Fair of the 2008 season, where the public gets to see the new models. Luckily I went on Saturday, when the weather was pretty good for mid March, but you can see it in the video clip yourself:

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:
