What I like:
What is the difference to the JETI high-class radios?
I followed the invitation from the secretary of state Baden-Württemberg, Volker Schebesta, to the new castle of Stuttgart on 11th of November. Sportswomen and sportsmen from more than 500 various sports classes were invited. All who achieved a podium ranking in 2018/2019 season in European or World Championships. My invitation was for the bronce medal on the 2018 European F3A Championship in Belgium.
In the white room of the castle the ceremony for athletics, bikers, boatmen… and aeromodellers too part! Besides me was one more rc-pilot. Marcus Haussmann, reigning F4H World Champion (scale class). I was happy to meet one more like-minded so we shared the experience together.
In small groups we went on stage to receive the gift from the president of the sports committee Baden-Württemberg, Mrs Menzer-Haasis.
After the official part during snacks we had the chance to meet and talk to more interesting people and exchange our experiences in our sport and events.
I was very pleased about this honor and want to thank the state of Baden-Württemberg for the event!
But until I had it in my hands, it was a very long way. It took more than one year until the radio was completely finish. I think with the gold color it describes the quality and valence of this product best.
"Before gilding all aluminum parts, they have to be polished to a high level gloss and after that galvanic nickel-plated. The quality of the aluminum polish is decisive for the final result. Finally the galvanic 24 carat gold plating takes place."
Here are a few pics of this event.
On the 25th and 26th of May was the first F3A WorldCup from the 2019 season in Leiria, Portugal. It´s around 130 km north from Lisbon close to the Atlantic.
From our club was not only myself attending this event, also Daniel Setzer who come back to F3A competitions after almost 20 years.
On Thursday we flew with our team from Frankfurt to Lisbon. All except me started 6 A.M. with Ryanair. My flight was around 2h later with Lufthansa, because I took the big box with the 2 airplanes inside.
Arrived in the hotel, we assembled the planes and took the rental cars to explore the area around. For the dinner we found an excellent restaurant directly on the Atlantic, recommended by Rui Ferrera. So the first day was a real success !
Friday was very windy but a perfect day for practice. The competition started Saturday morning.
There were 21 Pilots from Spain, Portugal, Israel, Germany and Brazil. Peter Uhlig was part of the Judging team together with 2 Spanish and 2 Portuguese judges. Roland Podevin from France was there to run his Notaumatic calculating programe which worked fast and excellent.
Daniel flew very well on saturday and ended up this day at 11th. On sunday he went back one position and finished the competition with a fantastic 12th place.
For me it was a tough battle with Juan Rombaut for the win. Saturday I was very close in pole position, after the finals we changed the positions and he won, I became second. 3rd place was 14-year old very talented Yuval Ben Israel from Israel.
It was also great, that my friend and boss of CM-Jets (one of our partners) Carlos Marquez visit us there and spend one evening with us!
At the end it was a very valuable weekend with a lot of fun, nice people, perfect weather and superb food in nice community! We would really like to come back next year!
A special thank you goes to Filipe Dinis Bernardino for driving my box from the airport to the hotel, the support there and the organization of this nice competition!
At the weekend from 18th and 19th of May was the MULTIPLEX Airshow which took place for the 4th time at the airfield of Bruchsal.
This time it was my first attendance in this event. Even I´m not a MULTIPLEX teampilot they invited me as a “friend of the house MULTIPLEX” and received me with great hospitality.
In the airshow I was flying Pilatus PC-21 and my electric GeeBee and also MULTIPLEX airplanes for dropping candies for childrens.
It was a well-mixed flight program with hundreds of highlights from the rc-scene and entertainingly and divertingly commented by Bernd Beschorner, Manfred Greve, Uwe Grenda and Lukas Nakir.
It was one of the best airshows ever!
Perfect organization, fantastic people, good weather and many exciting small talks.
Thank you MULTIPLEX for this event and the warm hospitality!
Thanks to Uli, for the amazing pictures!

Es gibt tolle Preise zu gewinnen 😉
Die beiden Berichte aus der FMT von Nils Brückner gibts hier nochmals zum Nachlesen!
On saturday, 23rd of March, Mr. Hacker invited to his 20-year-jubilee of Hacker Motor in Ergolding.
A great event with famous guests, interesting guids through the company and an exhibition of their projects in RC-business and industry made this day to one of the highlights in 2019.
Even the weather was perfect with a deep blue sky and warm temperatures, maybe also a merit of the past 20 years.
What started in the loft of his families´ house is nowadays a mid-sized company with almost 40 employees and projects around the world.
For more than 10 years I am Pilot for Hacker Motor. Since my beginning I trusted in the products from Bavaria. When I look back, that was probably my best decision I made in my rc-career. I am more than proud to be part of this team since that long time.
For some time Hacker Motor is also the exclusive distributor in Europe for my RT DESIGN models- nothing better could happen to me!
At this jubilee last week we took the chance to introduce my latest design coming this summer the market: Acrostar mk2 XL – the big brother of our 6S successor came to the market last year.
(More information about this plane coming soon.)
Again congratulations to Rainer Hacker for 20 years of Hacker Motor GmbH!
I´m looking forward to the next 20 😉
