The first time I flew with other pilots was about a year ago and this high school kid (Michael Saalwaechter) was there showing off his crazy tricks. Michael and I have flown together many times since then over the past year, and although both our skills have increased he has always been in another league. This was shown most recently with his performance at the MultiGP 5A Pacific Northwest Regional Finals hosted by DieHard RC. He did not have the cumulative highest score (partly due to the fact his battery didn’t have enough juice to finish the 2 gates on his 8th lap on round 2), but he did get the fastest lap and fastest 8 lap run out of anyone in the nation.

I’m super proud of this kid! I asked him if I could share his part list here, so here it is:
He’s making some changes to the build for nationals, but he asked me not to share them until after the competition.
Michael said he would be willing to help me answer questions, so ask away!
