    Since 2007 and for every 2 years there is the EXFC, European Xtreme Flight Championship.
    I first got there in 2007 as a caller for Ido Segev, and went with him all the way to 2009 and 2011 when he took the first place.
    Since than I've been dreaming about going there and participate with one of the world's best freestyle pilots, just to see how it is to fly among giants, well that dream is coming true thanks to two good friends, Tomas and Ivo...well...Iv'e got a plane in the US for the NATs 2013 and the Worlds 2014, I dont have much budget right now for a Eu plane, maybe later....so Tomas is letting me use his Krill Extra SC w/MVVS 175 for the contest...SSSWEEETTT !

    Noting much to expect, its my first true int' freestyle contest I'm going to but as I always say, its a very good stick time and experience.

    I'm flying today, just to meet with Tomas and the new RV we've rented for the weekend, then to the nearest flying field, which is the well known "Czeck Heaven" to test the Extra and to calibrate it.
    On the 19th we're driving to Znojmo, Model City, where the EXFC is going to take place, since 2007, practice a little more and wait to the pilot briefing.
    The contest is from the 21st-23rd, Fri-Sun.

    I'll post pictures and give you a full coverage throughout the contest.

    Well that's it for me now.
    Came to the EXFC 2015 just to meet with old friends and to meet new ones.
    On the way I got the privilege to fly with the best pilots in freestyle.
    I think it's more experience than I thought, like one of my friends here said, it's the Olympics.

    The Krill Extra 330 SC is an unlimited plane with unlimited choices for maneuvers, you just need to pick the right one.
    For me it showed in a very unambiguous way that the 150-200 size planes are here to stay big time, even though maybe the 100 size looks more agile...the Extra can be very agile like the 100 size plane and with the right engine it can outperform the 100 size, especially in a very hard wind.

    That being said we've got a lot of work to change and add some more effects.
    Now start the quest for the WOW factor.
    See you in EXFC 2017 friends thanks for all the info efforts and help.
