Thanks! Great piece of video. Nice flight by Chip with a great airplane. Back in the days when he still flew single stick!

Yeah I went straight to Hanno's flight (I wonder why). I laughed when i saw how badly he had raccoon eyes (where you're tanned except for where your sunglasses are), he must have been flying his ass off before the worlds!

Having watched all the videos I would say even though he won Hanno's flight did not look the best. In my mind Wolfgang was the smoothest.

Nice to see Hyde and Naruke flying those gorgeous Auroras.
Was that a fourstroke in Naruke's plane?

Naruke was flying the Silent even though they showed photos of Auroras at the beginning of the video. It was powered by the first YS F-120s and looked like it had quite a bit more power than the other long stroke 60 2Cs. The switch to 4Cs started following this year.

Those Auroras are just gorgeous!

I agree!!

Is it my computer monitor (or my imagination?) or does one of Naruke's Aurora's have the color pink in place of the yellow stripe??

Hey Chuck, I believe that is indeed pink . Naruke often used pink as a secondary scheme for his planes, usually replacing yellow. His winning Aurum Super Z in '97 was also in two schemes, with pink replacing yellow on one of them. Later Naruke designs made by Kyosho like the Aurum, G-Trick, and Sonic had both pink and yellow schemes.

Pink is pretty much a standard color in pattern with the Japanese flyers (Akiba especially, e.g. Beat-On), especially the underside. In fact it's a favorite for Chip (used as primary color on almost all is planes, Jekyll, Hydeout/away, Ultimate...), and CPLR as well (Topline comes to mind). Got pink?

Yes its true Naruke flew the silent with the 4 stroke the other plane you can see in the video was not an aurora that year. They must have confused some of 85 with 87 in the beginning. The plane you see with the pink was the Sweeetest most gorgeous plane I have ever seen. I spent a lot of time with tbe japanese that year especially naruke and we still talk about that year every time we are together.
Anyhow the name of the plane is called Sky-Rolla and it was built for the Long stroke YS which was just coming out at that time. Basically a aurora with even more beautiful lines if you can belive it. Mr Kato owns it to this day I believe. What a plane

Thanks CL, great stuff !

I wonder why I enjoy looking at a classic Pattern flying more than their contemporary counterparts (?) Even the planes look better. Am my an exception ?

Cheers, V.

Sky-Rolla - this is the first time I hear that name. A modified Aurora?
Are there any photos, maybe a 3-view drawing or some more tech details available?

Those were the Days!
In the video named Planes I could spot my Joker that I flew to a 6th Place at the European Championships the following year.
Nice memories are stirred.

Would anyone have any details on the model that Bertram Lossen flew in those 1987 videos? I saw an image of one of his older models in a magazine many years ago and for memory it was called "Challenge L". I've not been able to find any images since.

Although I like Bertram Lossen´s Red Palmer better, I think I will find some information about the Challenge.

If memory serves the Challenge was designed by Tobias Schulz.

Didn´t find so much information as hoped for the Challenge. These 2 photos are from a german book "RC Kunstflugmodelle", published already 1982.
The text tells that Tobias Schulz is Pilot (and designer/builder, I am quite sure) of the Challenge, and that this plane is regarded uncommonly large for those days.


Sorry, no tech data or overview drawings.

I'm quite sure that there was a plan published in the early 80's at

https://www.webshop.neckar-verlag.de/

May be worth a try...
