At the world record attempts 2014 in Ballenstedt Oliver Zanker managed to beat my old world record to about 446 km/h avarage in the Combo-class with a Typhoon XS!
Congratulations to Oli who had the cleanest and constantest flying this weekend !

The weather was not the best, rainy, windy and cold, so slow air for world record attempts. On saturday we had to stop very often flying because rain showers went thrugh, so only a few flights were possible for each of us.

Stefan and i had a little bad luck with our Typhoon XS !
The first flight we had a legal 464 km/h against the wind and an unlegal 489 km/h with the wind were the approach in the track was a little to high ! Motor was the Powercroco 4237 on 12S and a 11x24 Powercroco prop.

At the second start we had a little problem as the wing got stuck at stefans helmet when throwing! From the outside no damage could be detected, so we did a restart, but had problems that the model wanted to break out to the right side when at full speed at about 500km/h, so i decided to land.
We detected a moving reciever battery. We also had a closer look at the ailerons but everything seems to be normal.

On the third and fourth flight we had the same problems with the right turning, so something must be damaged inside the wing or stab which causes this behaviour! I have to make some closer investigations and tests to find out whats wrong. Unfortunately i also killed the fuse by a rotating landing in the high gras.

So we transplanted the drive in a night and fog-action into a new fuse and also prepared the big Typhoon on 14S for sunday. The first flight on sunday with the typhoon was a trimming flight with a Powercroco 4535, 14S 4000 and a 12x24.
The plane flies very, very smooth and fast but the setup is a little hot, so we only got 3 trackruns on the long world record track, before killing the batteries. We did two other flights with the Typhoon on sunday, always beeing a little to high at the approach. The 400m world record track is very hard to fly and claims everything from the pilots. Though everyone did several flights, noone could get a legal two-side reading except Christian Erdt and Oliver Zanker.

Another world record was set with the helicopter duration which was improoved from 2h 30 min to 2h 58 min.

Congratulations to Timo Wendtland !
