Amazing 4-minute Freestyle

Oct 24, 2012 8 Comments by

When Gernot Bruckmann stepped up to fly at last weekend’s Tucson Aerobatic Shootout, the crowd knew they were going to watch something special. A native of Villach, Austria, this young man is only 20 years old and has been flying model airplanes since he was 14 years old. So far he has competed in about 160 contests in different categories. After watching this video, I think you’ll agree with the judges who awarded him first place in this year’s Freestyle competition! He is now a 4-time Tucson Shootout 4-minute Freestyle champion, 3 Time E-TOC champion, 2 time EXFC Champion, 2 time German Acro Masters champion, and he is also the German and Austrian Champion in Acro Gliders.

About the author

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    Spectacular flying. Reminds me of MAN’s very own Tom Kitt, except Tom flies in all conditions, and is much more active on the sticks.
