  1. Hi Guys,

    Little is known and talked about in the good US of A about the friends across the pond, and I thought it will be nice to share some of the sights and pictures from this year event

    The EXFC is being held every two years in Znojmo,Czech republic and the event is held at the "Model City" flying site which is the biggest one in Europe, and got hotel,pool,bar,restaurant,as well as a hangar and tools for all to use and all this is on site.
    The flying site serves all of Europe for all the major R/C events, from scale,jets,helicopters, and giant scale aerobatics(F3M)
    Some pictures from past events can be seeing here http://www.modelcity.cz/cz/?page_id=84

    This year EXFC were not less then 65 pilots from around the world, with guys flying all the way from Japan to compete.
    As well as 9 teams that fly in the due formation competitions, which made this event to the single biggest R/C event for freestyle aerobatic flying in the world.

    This year winner was Wolfgang Krahofer , 2nd was Martin Brandmüller and 3rd was Gernot Bruckmann .

    The Majority of the pilots flew composites airplane, mostly Krill, but different from past years both first and second place winners used balsa models, yet both were highly modified and far from being a "of the shelf " products.

    The crowd this year enjoied a show of none other then the aerobatic full size champion and RedBull pilot Mr.Martin Å onka
