BIOGRAPHY

My name is Walter Kirsch, I am from Carinthia, Austria and i’m studying Systems Design at the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences with major in Embedded Systems. At the moment I am student employee at Infineon Technologies Austria AG. I am playing around with multicopters since 2011. In 2015 I saw a video of some French pilots racing in the woods. I immediately knew I had to try this out. In the same year the Aerial Grand Prix 2015 took place in Austria/Spitzerberg where I gathered the first experience in drone racing. The feeling of flying through tiny gaps at relatively high speeds totally stunned me from the first race. In the upcoming year 2016 I was racing at a lot of national and international events where I was quite successful. First priority for me is to have a good time with my friends while flying. When I can get back home with a good position in the ranking, I am even more happy. At home I try to practice at least three times a week on my own racetrack in the backyard. Every two weeks I modify the racetrack to keep the practicing level high.
