Why? Yesterday evening I flew. Yes. Now is … dead. Have you ever made “off” and again “on”? Yes, have already several times. Do you have the right plane in it? Yes. Is it tied up? Yes, so at least it was … last night I flew with it. It’s not possible. I’ve never had that. Oh people, let’s take another look, come on.
Because that would be a pity. Gorgeous conditions. In the first round, 9 laps and 7 laps have been flown on average. Today we have a strong north-east wind, fly in the lee. To start a bit complicated, but you see, the Brandenburg thermals here near Berlin is awesome. We will fly many, many laps today. And the first start was 7:28, so after UTC. So, half past nine and we had thermals without end. We flew around. Typical weather here in the area, so it is worthwhile to come to Berlin. And? First impression?
Is it worth it to come to Berlin? In any case. Awesome. And? Thermals satisfied? Yes. It gets worse. It gets worse, exactly. Can not be trusted? No, you can not exchange. Yes, he does not find the recipient. OK. He is not on it. But somehow he must have electricity, right? Yes. Reconnect? Yes? OK. OK, let’s go. Has a little bit less of power I feel, right? Yes. Entry to 25 or? Yes. Should I throw it for you Olli? No no. Fits. Yes, yes, then do it this way. It’s okay. I’ll go away for a while from the people. Yes. Well. OK. Alright, let’s do our thing. Nice cloudscape. Yes, awesome, dude! Good contrast there. Yes, dear friends of Modellpilot.EU. We are on the GPS Triangle competition in the sports class today, which is very fresh and is also on the upswing and it is an ideal construction element, where many many designers and manufacturers in the future have great potential. Like as it happened with F3B or F5J, that then there in the GPS Triangle already super constructions on the market will come. We see in the background the Baudis, down here, we have the Lesky Composite. We have not been bad. I made my very first flight ever on Triangle today and also made 7 laps.
There was the start time 9:25 clock and it’s just a great number, because 7 laps to create the wind is great. We have a grenade thermals, which we also promised that will come. If it’s sun and weather, it always looks as nice as we have here in the background. And we will have a great day.
The results will be fantastic. The second round is just on the run and participants have come from Switzerland, from Germany from the Bodenseekreis, then from Braunschweig, Berliners are here. Then we have a newcomer like me, the one from Brunswick, then one of the Andreas comes from the area. I do not know now, Kulmbach? Yes exactly. Yes, then from Cologne. So you can see that it is a beautiful area here. This also the thermals is very good. It’s not for nothing that people are all keen to fly in Lüsse, that’s also here in the area, so the geological conditions are the same. From the man wearing to fly the championships here. Here are great distances flown.
We already had climbing values this morning of more than 1.5 to 2 meters. That’s sensational and the morning at half past nine of normal time. So 8.30 clock UTC. Yes, the weather forecast for today is:
It stays as it is beautiful and that will be the same for the next few weeks. Welcome, if you have the idea to be here again next year, first of all it is a great idea to bring you to the far north. We’ll hear a few more interviews, but first enjoy the picture. Since the corner … More to us. Yes. Now he is coming. You laugh. There is nothing. Now he is coming! There he is. Is nothing. No, fly on. Continue to fly, well. Landing! OK. Fits. It’s OK. All good. It’s OK. He also goes to the limit, what the … The back was good, at the one, or Olli? Back there? Yes, yes. OK. Let it go. Landing! Awesome. Thank you. It’s really fun.
How many laps do we have? Two? Six. Six? That’s fun. Yes, that’s funny. So, we are standing here in the lee of the forest, quite rare direction. Thank you. … but that went down so, yes? I have … Now it works. Yes. Here we go. Wait, I’m still scolding mine and I’ll be ready soon. Yes, that’s also possible with a Tangent plane. Yes, is it fun, right? The plane is … is running well. Yes. Do you have extra ballast in it now or is it the way it is in the place? Ballast is always secret. What I actually wanted to ask is whether the plane is built on the limit, especially weight limit or if you have to reload to achieve that? You can reload as much as … So for free flying you can loose … And is this an experience here? Excellent! Two flights, 19 laps, is cool. Has something. Yes, Berlin was great. Welcome to the award ceremony and we do it on points. With 2,325 points, the Dirk Gericke. Congratulations. Thank you. Here is your first diploma. Yes, cool. Thank you. With 2,725 points, Emanuel Dähn. Thank you. Can you keep that long? With 2,956 points, Benjamin Dähn. Yes. Very well. All the best. Then we get on the ranks. With 3,766 points, Mr. Stephan Eich. Well, thank you. Nice. Congratulations. With 4,425 points, Andreas Kunz. Yes. Clean. Nice. Congratulations. Thank you. Last but not least. He had not only the furthest approach, but also most of the triangles. Oliver Pfister. Thank you. Congratulations. Your diploma and, of course, the trophy. Clean. Cleaned. Thank you for coming. At this point again a big thank you to the IG Modellflug Nord, to Michael Skrip, who incidentally donated the whole entry fee to the GPS Triangle Club. Wow! Bravo! Thank you! Short applause. Yes and I hope to see you again next year with more pilots. It was really awesome here, great weather. It was a lot of fun. Many Thanks. Great thank you! Welcome, dear friends of Modellpilot.EU. Now we have seen the result. There was a lively participation, two newcomers and professionals. They were really good professionals. I also made my first number, I can not call myself a professional. So dear Andreas, come a little closer. What do you think of this scene? Yes, it’s just exciting, not just staying up, thermals, but also doing stretch. You are from the F3B scene. Can you also recommend them to join? Yes, that’s definitely an alternative to cross-country flying, to this challenging F3B. I think one or the other F3B pilot will be comfortable in the GPS Triangle scene and I’m glad when more is coming. That’s not a nice open design class? Yes, definitely and that leaves room for tactical decisions and is just great and fun. Especially the guys are involved. It’s a scene that’s evolving and that’s bound to continue. Yes OK. Thanks to you, Andreas. Thank you. Oliver, you too. Yes, yes. This is Emanuel Dähn. He belongs to the board, right? Precisely. Tell me, how did you come up with the idea of coming north? We had the most competitions in southern Germany or in Switzerland so far and of course we would like to expand a bit. The pilots from the north also introduce to this great sports class. Thanks for that. Exactly and naturally that I knew you. So I called you and did not ask you a place where we can fly GPS Triangle and then you recommended this to me and it was a great recommendation, because it was brilliantly good here. You can get used to the thermals, it really is. Since we have a good three weeks such chamber days there and spread over the weekends.
I let myself be told. That has also voted, so awesome. Olli. You came the furthest. Where are you from? Yes, from Switzerland, from St. Gallen. You insane, yes?
We all came from afar. You’re flying pretty far forward here. Apparently yes. Now explain, what would you give as a tip for the beginners. A lot of training. It is important,
that you know the plane well, that you are shot down on the plane, that you can not take care of the environment, take care of the tactics and fly the plane perfectly, that is very important. Therefore invest a lot of free time and also in this training. Good, thanks for that. Benjamin So now we can get you even ran.
Watch out. Now tell me, how can we expect anything in the future, where we can get in the foofers, for example? It is likely that this will be very good if you just make the entry barrier smaller or lower, that you can have the same fun with less financial effort. With the smaller environment and that one can possibly promote this in the association in the youth work. We see good chances. This is almost a mini-entry, easy entry into the … That’s the cost. Everybody has such a flier to say a foam waffle so to name no names “SOLIUS” or “HERON”, yes? Then there will be another technique in the near future. We can also fly GPS Triangle via telemetry. Is it correct that way? Exactly, that is in the planning, in the Mache must of course be developed, that you can do the same thing very inexpensively on a small field without much effort and now, for example, in the sports class. You can really do such a competition on the normal airfield. You do not need many people for it. Today we were not very many but everything worked perfectly. The equipment is very low what you need. So very easy. You also provide the equipment for the beginners, that they can come in there. Exactly. In the sports class or in the big class we have the GPS T3000 rental equipment, which you can always take. That does not cost anything. You put this in the plane and you can start right away. You have a coach with you, it shows you everything. You can really come with the plane on the square and go. So, you come over again. Yes, dear friends and here too:
Model flying is awesome! A heartfelt thank you! And of course, we’re looking forward to seeing the thermals again next year, right? Of course, perfect. Thank you very much Stephan. Thank you, Stephan.
