Winter flying?, yes you can, if you are in doubt? here you get the definitive evidence, one video with Klaus from Denmark flying the TZ V2 90 aka JS 3D Frenzy 90, in -5C.

Next video is Tom-Erik from Norway flying the Raptor 90 SE at -19,5C a night flight and it is a short flight maybe because his fingers are freezing :)

Klaus from Denmark flying the new Frenzy at -5C, me like the Frenzy :) i want one.

WUUUUUHUUU I am back, on the internet that is, I changed internet provider and because of that i had to wait for a new internet connection for about 3 weeks, bummer, but I can save some money on the new internet deal and that money I can use for Fuel, look I made a chart, I am a big boy.

Here are the prices for 30% nitro fuel recommended for RC helicopter, prices are in Danish kroner. I compared the prices in liter.

Dealer Product Price/liter(DKr) Price(DKr)
Avionic.dk Wild Cat HeliMix 30% nitro (at 8 gallons) 54,49 1650
Rotordisc.dk Cool Power 30% nitro low smoke (at 4 gallons) 58,78 890
Avionic.dk Wild Cat HeliMix 30% nitro (at 4 gallons) 59,44 900
Rotordisc.dk Alternative OPTIMIX 30% (at 20liter) 62 1240
Rotordisc.dk Cool Power 30% nitro (at 4 gallons) 65,38 990
HobbyFly.com Rapicon 30% nitro(at 1 gallon) 68,69 260
Holte-modelhobby.dk Cool Power 30% nitro (at 1 gallon) 71,33 270
lcmodels.dk Powermaster 30% nitro (at 1 gallon) 78,99 299

If I forgot somebody, or if you have a good/cheap place to buy fuel, feel free to write a comment to keep me updated, then I will update the chart.

Can I at the same time encourage you guys in the other country’s to make the same kind of chart to urge for some price competition, I will link to your price comparison


Going for Pitchbrothers Smackdown

No Gravatar

Now the weekend is coming closer and i am going to the Pitchbrothers Smackdown in a FIAT 127 !!!!! Yep my Fiat is back on the road again after some huge investments it passed the vehicle approval test we have here in Denmark, now i can drive in it for two more years until the next approval test is up.

But being that the car was that expensive i figured what the heck, i am driving in the Fiat for the Pitchbrothers Smackdown, it is about 230 kilometers and that is a lot in a car where i just can get it to run 110Km/h and not a Km more. Wish me luck.

If you are one of the fellow pilot driving to the Smackdown and you see a car looking like this(pictures) at the side of the road, and you see a desperate guy standing beside the Fiat, the car is properly destroyed, please don’t hesitate to pick me and my helicopter up and get us to the Smackdown for a kick ass helicopter weekend.

Now Denmark really rocks the international RC Helicopter scene. The founders of The Pitchbrothers society have established a Smackdown event I Denmark. This is really a event you and I don’t want to miss, if you live near Denmark or you just like RC Heli’s I am sure this event is worth awhile, there are international pilots at this event too.

“Petr Novotny” and “David Nolan + Engelsk MA-Team” just to name some of the pilots at this event and I think we can expect more top pilots, and of cures all the Danish fellows will come. No doubt that the event will be fun.

Please check out the Picthbrother site for more info, you can find a forum there too.

The field where the event will take place is in “Sønderborg ” click here to see the location.

I have just added a new feature to the map, now you can get driving directions to the locations on the map, as you can see here:

Get driving directions on the map

In the top textbox write your “Street, zip city, country” and hit Enter or Get directions, and the driving directions will show.

Check it out on the map http://usmap.rcheli.dk show you support by registering, thanks.

And I will see you at Sønderborg the 8-10 of May. I will add this to my calender in 2009
