Meet the best. Fly with the rest.

Scale Heli Storm 2025 will offer a broad experience for attendees. Pilots, personalities, relaxed competitions, learning seminars and industry players will all contribute to a special scale helicopter experience.

Pilots who do not intend to fly will be treated to all of the opportunities afforded to flying pilots so bring you butt to the event and if you can get your model there, great; if not, you'll have "almost" as much fun!

Matthias Strupf of HeliClassics with KA-32
