I am on the airport now, boarding the plane in some minutes. I hope my planes will arrive safely in Stockholm!

Pre worlds is over.

Boy it was windy and sinky. Some used quite heavy planes were needed (~400gr) to have at all a chance to get some forward flying.

Tons of land outs.

Joe Wurts won it (and he flew comparably light Stobels).


My team mate made 8th place, I was still in jet lag.

Offical Reto, American Fan Club


Keep posting Reto, your American fan club is looking in, and pulling for you.

So suck it up, load it up, and let it loose.

Jr says you should've gone deeper downwind and used your free Sonic token for ballast.

Good luck buddy!

Blog updated.

Good start for both Retos. Both maxed in last flight, Reto F maxed alone in his group 3 of 6 and a 9s drop in 1,2,3,4, which was ok.
Looking good as well for Reto Schmid, some drop in 3 of 6. Jun has unfortunately already 2 bad rounds. It is not windy, but with clouds lift was little like a fart in the morning.

Read the blog.

Hey Reto F. If they put any stickers or markings on my wing, leave them on. It will be like a souvenir!

Now go have some chocolate and peanut butter to regain your strength! Bwahahahaha

Nawww, where do you think he got all of his skills. You can't be a "big pimp" like Reto till you've done it all.


Go Reto!!!

Thanks for the kind words.

We had big team drama yesterday. Gregor's Stobel went straight in on a hefty launch for the 2min.

We fixed it overnight with all our skills.

I was lucky in ladder at 8:15am and could max it. Thus I am still in top 10 place, but now comes All up last down and Poker.

I just enjoy every flight here, this is what matter for us. It is such a treat to fly with all those pro's here and they are all really really strong, scary!
