A great thank you also goes to all the sponsors for the table of

Serene Highness Marie of Liechtenstein is Stefan Kaiser!!! Rank 2 goes

Germany. The full ranking list can be found above.
But there was even more: Emil Giezendanner, delegate of the CIAM/FAI brought
some more good news. Lassi Nurila, Finland, won the World Cup of 2015
and Stefan Kaiser came in 2nd. Therefore, Emil handed over the silver medal
to Stefan Kaiser. Lassi Nurila already received his gold medal from his
national aeromodelling club.

choose their price from the table of presents.
