ready for competition

Men at work. We have build 7 batleths during wintertime. The different batleths are for fun, competition, show and easy gliding. The weights for the wings are different. The range is from 170 g to 300g.

First glitch free test with DX7 on Air

Today was my first flight with the new DX7 from Spectrum.
The idea was to test the system attached on my F5D batleth on ground and airborne.
I had two glitchfree flights.

I had to install the smaller receiver outside the fuselage, because two test's with the receiver inside the fuselage and reduced transmitting power (push the button on the backside of the transmitter) worked just for around 20 Meters well. The first two flights were done with one receiver attached on the upper side of the fuselage. Further tests will be done with the equipment installed inside.

Nördlingen 2006

Dr.Lagaua at his best. He wasn't able to fly a round with this F5D limited plane in a ordinary way. His speciality: soaring.

Behind Dr. Lagaua, Andreas (Pilot) and Siggi(Caller). Andreas is a nice friendly guy. Typically he doesn't look like that.

Mr This guy keeps the information moving. He is responsible for all the funny staff on his website. I enjoy him very much.

The Contest Director. This "enlarge your penis thing" gives him a good penetration against the silly arguments race pilots always come up.

Thomas, a member of the Swiss F5D Team. He changed his bycicle wit the oldest F5D Model we have found. A nice guy. In my Opinion one of the really good model pilots.
Markus one of the best F5D Pilots in the world. He was third on the Worldchampionship F5 2006 in Rumania. Cosy men.
