I’m Stanley Spichtinger from Germany and a passioned speed pilot for hobby. I'm 16 today and I'm attending a grammar school in my hometown in east Germany.
I started flying when I was about 10 years old. All that began with small styro models which you only have to unbox and throw to fly. I improved my skills and so my interest to the model planes grew. My first speed model was the hotliner 'Mini-Hawk' from the German manufacturer Staufenbiel. With 5 Lipo cells it was fast enough for me for a short time. But only for a short time.
But you discover the widths of this community from time to time and so I saw what is even possible with the right model and the right actuation. So I also wanted a real speed model. The really first speed model was the Chimera from Dr. Marcus Koch, with it I got my first beyond 400 speeds in 2014. In the early 2015 the Chimera crashed, but after a short time I got my new model for the German competition 2015. It was the Typhoon XXS from Dr. Marcus Koch.
I reached place 8 with a speed of 441 km/h in the 2015 German Championship.
I didn’t feel happy about my result, so I attacked in 2016 again. 2016, my year of success:
1st place at the Speedcup in Bad Wünnenberg with 457 km/h
(Typhoon XXS with an HK 4235, 12s and a 11 x 25 propeller)
1st place at the competition of Pasewalk with 407 km/h
(Typhoon XXS with an HK 4225, 11s and a 11 x 20 propeller)
2nd place at the German Championship (limited battery weight) in Bad Wünnenberg with 431 km/h
Crocoblade with HK 4540, 12s and a 11,2 x 29, 3 Blade
And 3rd place at the Powercroco Speedchallenge in Ballenstedt with 497 km/h in the middle, but I
reached from one direction a speed of 536 km/h.
Crocoblade with HK 4540, 16s and a 11,2 x 29, 3 Blade
At the Powercroco Speedchallenge I met Georges Van Gansen so I asked him to enter the Team. And
I was allowed to do, thanks a lot.
