There will be a speed competition at Global 3D 2019 as part of the big venue of RC helicopter flying. The list of speed contest contains five names so far, and Germany dominates it with three pilots.

The most spectacular part of Global 3D will be the night flight. The list of the pilots is not that short here either, it contains 9 names and - as on the previous list - Germany dominates it. Both list have wider age spectrum than the Master or Expert pilot lists. Few pilots flying in the night flight will compete in Expert class as well: Fabian Kloß, Hamish Scott, Maximilian Zick, and Kan Poonnoi is will fly in the Masters class also. Peter Hsiao is the only pilot among the speed pilots, who will compete in one of the other classes, he is also in the Masters class.

It is certain, Global 3D is not going to be boring even this year.
