There is not a lot to report from Munich, not that many new videos yet, but you just have to see the video with the coolest night blades.


The pilot is Andreas Schmittel

I hope we can find a lot of new video from Munich Heli Masters tomorrow.

Extra update:
Just found a picture of the Pitchbrother on the official MHM blog, check it out, that it a cool jacket. Look here last picture

And the Danes did not get a medal, the results


Curtis Youngblood going for Pitchbrothers

What did I say, that maybe Curtis would get the Pitchbrother sticker, and look at this flight from Curtis, he is going very low, and I think you can hear my Pitchbrother screaming in the back “LOW LOW” that’s what you get from inviting the Pitchbrothers :)


You have to check out the show flight from Dominik Hägele, with a crash at the end, it was not the engine this time.


For a nice interview with Curtis Youngblood and all the flight from the first round, check the video here


Munich Heli Masters 2008

Munich is the place to be this weekend, If you like to see the best 3d helicopter flying in Europe. I am sorry to say that I am not at Munich this weekend, but I promise you that I will keep you and I updated.

40 pilots overall and they have already started the preflight; we have some Danish pilot in Munich as well.

If I should name some of the pilots, there is Dominik Hägele.

The Jensen brothers and Knud Pedersen from Denmark, some of the best pilot in Denmark.

Finally, Curtis Youngblood is in Munich. I cannot see him on the pilot list, but maybe he will get a Pitchbrother sticker this weekend :)

If I have to be honest, I have my expectations high for Dominik. I just wish that he won’t get a motor stop, like he has in some of the previous competitions.

Now for the updates, it seems like there are some dedicated webmaster down there, we already have the first videos from the preflight today.

This is Kim Jensen’s flight




There must be something wrong with this video I can’t her the Danes screaming in the back. CRACK IT !!!

Future more Kim Jensen is a guest blogger on this blog, I think we can expect a post about the Munich Heli Masters when he gets home from Munich.

If you would like to see the videos you can find them here, when their uploaded.

The best of luck to the Danish pilots, bring home a medal for us.

I hope all of you have a great time in Munich.

I just got home from a great weekend, with the last round of the Danish Helibatic. It went very well I got first place, see :)

First price at Danish Helibatic sport 2008

I ended first place at the Danish Helibatic Sport 2008. It was the first time I entered a helicopter competition.

Finally yet importantly I am a real Pitchbrother now, I went for the grass cutting this weekend, and I got the sticker, check out this video of my flight.

Site note, please have a final look at the Google implementations of the pilot locator, I have been working on it for a while now, and the only thing missing now is the email function, and I am working on that. Check out the new implementation of the driving direction function on the map, it printer friendly to.

I will be back with lots more videos.

Dominik Haegele and Hirobo

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
