Memorial Sebastián Almagro - Córdoba 2016
One of my favourite events of the year is the Memorial Sebastián Almagro, held in Faasa, in Palma del Río, Córdoba.
This year would be no exception, taking with my a brand new PilotRc 107” Extra, with an amazing spec and of course my trusted Jets Model Factory Ultimatun. In addition, for some added fun, I also had with me my PilotRc 92” Extra.
This event, held at the Faasa Aerodrome, with an 800m long runway and no real obstacles to be seen is a truly amazing place to fly, especially when flying fast jets at low altitude. The crowd are also great, really getting involved in the flights making lots of noise and enticing the pilots to really push their abilities to the max.
The show-stopper this year was without a doubt Victor Calvo’s +60kg F16. Few models have the size of this one, and even fewer have the flying style and realism that this one does.
One of my favourite moments this year was actually after the show, when to my surprise I was allowed to hover (only hover!) inside the hangar, the rest you can see in the video!
