2013 RC Groups ETOC

This was my first year going to ETOC. I heard a lot of things about it but did not know what to expect. This was a amazing show from the flying to the demos to the E X Games! I was blown away at the skill in all the pilots and i had a good laugh and a lot of fun during the demos, raffles, and E X Games! I want to congratulate RJ Gritter on being the 2013 ETOC champion, and Gernot Bruckmann and Christophe Lausberg for making it into the top three! Also great job to all the other pilots they all have an amazing talent! I learned a lot from this and hopefully by next year i will have formed this amazing talent. Well if you missed the great show on saturday it took a long movie of the top 3 unknown sequences and other random sequences, then at the end is the E X Games which should give you a good laugh! ENJOY!!!

they use whats called a variable pitch prop or VPP. what it does is it reverses the pitch of the prop to reverse the thrust.
