I was an American teenager in Stuttgart, Germany back in 1968-1971. The first time I saw an RC heli, it was in a German magazine. It seemed like an impossibility because of the machine work, stability and control needed. But like many things technical, it is the Germans who seem to work it out. I liked flying with them because they took their fun seriously.

Little did I know that 16 years later I would fly Schluter helis. What a significant contribution Dieter Schluter has made to RC helis. Many modern names come and go. But Herr Schluter really is the father of the RC heli.

If anyone plans to visit Germany and looks for interesting locations he should add the "German Helicopter Museum" in Buckeburg.

GPS: 52°15'40"N / 9°02'49"E

Most of the shown models in this film (and of course a lot more) they have in their exhibition.

Thanks for the video link and for starting this thread, Gerd. The history of RC is always fascinating, particularly about the earliest helicopters. Well done.

Gerd thank you for posting this fantastic historical footage. It is always good to look back and realize how easy we have it now and admire the determination of those early pioneers.
My first model helicopter (long after all the stability issues viewed in the film were sorted out) was a Schluter Champion which I still have in flying condition. (built like a panzer)
