Dominik seems to domain the 3D competitions at the moment, he has won the 3D Masters 2007 and he has won the Futaba Extreme Flight Championship XFC 2008, he is really rocking the competitions, and best of all he is flying Hirobo.
I myself have a Hirobo Freya 90 and I am very happy with it, but I has been knowen to be a bit slow and not really a 3D helicopter, but in the FAI competitions it has been a very promising helicopter for years. With my curren flying style I am very happy with a stabile and “slow” flying helicopter, it is a very good helicopter to learn some of the difficult maneuvers, but I am also very pleaset to here that Hirobo is working on a new 3D model, the Hirobo Turbulence D3.
Hirobo are known to be a very good helicopter with high quality and excellent design, and that is for affordable prices best of all. I am not sure the new Turbulence is going to be cheep but I now you will get what you pay for an a little more. You can read a bit more about the new Turbulence here.
That is just the helicopter, it takes a pilot to, and I takes a good pilot to win two competitions like that, you can have a look at his excellent flying in some HD video from RunRyder here, and second video. And now for the person here is a short Interview with Dominik Haegele.
Good luck with the next competition Dominik
