JÖRG ETZLER INTERVIEW short summary GPS TRIANGLE WM 2017 RC SCALE GLIDER COMPETITION
Welcome dear friends of Modellpilot.eu! Today we are on the GPS World Masters 2017 in Gruibingen / Nortel. Next to me is the heart of the whole. First of all thank you for such a great event. Because we are today before the last one passage and short conclusion. Yes, it could not be more perfect. We have had perfect races for 10 days in perfect weather. As an organizer you can not imagine anything better. Yes. Tell me the story. How is it? come that Gruibingen / Nortel was selected? Yes, about two years ago we started the first one here Eurocup to fly and the participants were actually so excited about the same the infrastructure here and also from the members how it all ended. That one asked me right away in the connection, if we can imagine, here also the world championship accomplish. And in a weak moment we said yes. But we do not regret it for a second. It is also very much for the club economic and lucrative through the income that has come now, so it is always worthwhile for clubs to do that? Right? Clear. Settled at the end but the picture currently looks very Positive, so it can be said that it is worthwhile to show this work for the club as well. Yes, I think that’s fantastic. Then maybe they can afford a new discus payment. Exactly. Yes, as a club we have already for next year the order for batteries rausgeschossen. That helps us finance at least one winglet. Then it is OK. But it is also a pleasure to promote the cause in this direction, because what I was allowed to experience, I was allowed to join you, you become see it later in the movie about four hours of shooting in 4k within the pilot circle and that was exciting. So from here you can see, if you know that it is exciting. But if you stand between the pilots, then notice how it crackles and you can catch it all beautifully, how are the tactics and so on and immediately and dear Jörg, tell me something about the regulations. Yes, we fly here in two classes. We have the self-starting capable, the SLS class, which is not limited by the scale and only by the 25 kilos is capped and then we have the class 1: 3. That’s what the scale says, 1: 3 is the maximum that I can fly here. The start is in the F-tow. Both go to one 2.4 km long circuit into the race for half an hour and then who was the fastest and had the most laps, he is the winner of this one race. Well. That means, but how is the score? It is estimated that we fly here in groups of a maximum of 15 aircraft, the airspace does not allow more, we have also noticed here. After that, each pilot or winner of this round gets a maximum of 1000 points. And that makes us comparable again when we fly a lap in top conditions, there are also only 17 laps for example, 1000 points, as well as a round that flew in bad conditions with 5 rounds, there are also 1000 points. Each time the groups are re-solved, so that not only strong groups fly against each other over the whole competition and thus will be over 10 rounds We flew here at the World Cup, equal opportunities. Does that mean that the pilots in the groups are then fixed? No, they are not fixed, they will again triggered, so not such effects that a Philipp Kolb and a Florian Schambeck are under the circumstances constantly mutually inciting one another, but one already has the possibility through the Re-trigger computer random. And that is done daily? Yes, it’s constantly being redone. So you see, that’s an interesting thing. It’s like a Kleinkrimi. You have to imagine it that way I drink or I do not drink, I hold myself and the helper looks left and right. Oh, it’s getting a bit better than we are now. Let’s get there, we can not go there and this tension is incredible, which we also have to transport or? Exactly. That was also a very important effect, which we have noticed here. The audience is knowledgeable partly but also laymen. And it is, in my opinion elementary, that one here, that one comments on the races here and then one has also a lot patient audience, the one afterwards also constantly with detail questions. And that’s always a sign, aha I got it, I want to know a little bit more and that’s what we want to achieve. And you have achieved that in the big crowd, there are thousands of visitors here. Yes, so we had the strong public days 1000 visitors or a little more, during the week it was about every day 300 visitors and my voice is getting a bit hoarse from the many conversations but that’s the way it should be. Yes. Thanks a lot, dear Jörg for the interview! Yes. And finally: model flying is …. great! Thanks for that, bye bye!
