Sounds like someone needs to organize a west coast FLI....

I do find it ironic that so many sports (and hobbies) are all over the west coast...but we have so much 3D in the east....

I bet if you guys get together and put an event on that you'd get some support.

Actually....There have been two Huckfests in northern California (The Lodi Huckfest). The first one had a pretty decent turn-out, the second not so much...first one, quite a few vendors, the second, only one.

Bigfoot and the Bipe were at the FLI in NJ, though I missed the Bipe. Since the Bipe is "done" according to Ben, their focus is now on new products - things like Bigfoot. Makes sense.

I would imagine the Bipe announcement would be any time now.

We had one Huckfest here in AZ too.

Great group of guys put it together, and the people that came had fun but it was a small turnout. Way out in the middle of the AZ desert in May might not have been the best time/place to put it though.

Well it was May 2011, so you were out of luck anyways. I think at the peak there was like, 14 pilots. I mean, I REALLY appreciate the club that put it on and had a great time, but it was small.

If you come out to SVF where Buzzed shoots all his sunset photos you will see as much 3DHS p0rn there as you would have at the AZ Huckfest.

Of course that's during the nice weather, right now it's a little more quiet. More airspace for us!!!

that would be great, anything I can do to help let me know, we don't have the field or infrastructure to do any thing at my field here.
