Helicopter or F3C

In the early 70's the German ing. Dieter Schlüter made the first tests with radio controlled helicopters. Very quickly the first helicopters could be bought in specialised shops. Since this time visitors could see helicopters flying on our airfield in Bendern as Ludwig Matt sen. was fascinated about this kind of modelling. He invested his time and money to learn to fly such models which wasn't so easy to control as today, the technique needed many years to come to the actual standard.

In the late 80's the technique reached already a high level. Crashes due to technical problems became very rare. More and more of our members started to practice flying helicopters.
