Munich Heli Masters 2009 in Germany

Biggest 3D heli event in Europe "Munich heli masters 2009" was held on September 11th to 13th.

Scott Gray was invited as a special guest and he did extremely nice performance!  Many people  came to the booth asking for Vibe90SG and Vibe 500E after looking his performance.

There were about 500 visitors on Friday, 5000 to 6000 on Saturday and approx 3000 on Sunday.  During the event, the Super Gracy show of Scott was the most wanted one on all days.  Unfortunately the ground came to his Vibe90SG too close!….. but not so bad at the end.

Andy from AK MOD, his booth was just in front of the restaurant and all people who came to the restaurant stopped and see his booth, which was very lucky :-)
