A Victory for Flopgun (Congrats on the 100cc ARF!). Disappointment for SupaTim and DMan. Vitter does his thing during the Hover demo activities.

(See the top left picture, the airplane pieces in the fire pit? Remember the lady at Marymore who has that screechy voice and makes others follow the rules she and her husband ignore? Yeah, that's her plane)

Huck of a time!

Huckfest 2011... Saturday at Red Apple Fliers: A Huck of a time!

Wow, what a great day of 3D and RC fun in general.

Awesome flying, Mega prizes handed out and hanging out with friends in absolute perfect flying weather. What a day!
Sitting on the flight line as Gabriel Altuez throw down his final PAU demo Saturday afternoon was by far the best RC experience I've had.

Thanks to Red Apple Fliers for hosting an outstanding event.
Note to self.... spend more time at Huckfest next year.

Insane! Incredible! Huge!
I will never go to this event again without a real plane! Nor will I go for only one day! The most amazing 3D day I have ever seen! Also, awesome to see the Marc, NCC and FGF folk so well represented in every way. Here are a few picts of my own. And congratulations Flop on your cool demo winning take-home!

Huckfest 2011

That was awesome! For those who didnít make it be sure to plan on this one next year, you wonít be disappointed. It was great to meet so many nice people in the hobby and see some truly talented pilots.

If you havenít see the Official 2011 Wenatchee, Washington Huckfest Picture / Video thread on Flying Giants be sure to check it out. There is a ton of photos and a few videos. I know the Holman family will be posting the videos of Daniel Holman and Gabriel Altuz flying together, one during the day and one at night. Daniel was flying Flopís EF 50cc Extra (electric set up), Gabriel was flying a PAU 100cc Extra. Both flights are amazing but the night flight was unreal! I must see video! I canít wait to see that one again!

Hopefully someday they'll make that design a little smaller.

The Wenatchee Huck was unbelievable!!! Even after putting in two giants to "the cause" I would do it all over again in a half a heartbeat! Still licking my wounds, but should hopefully have a lot of video up by this evening.

Stay tuned...

Tim, every one of your Saturday flights was kickin A and takin names!
Back in my race car days it was always understood that if you didn't go "off" at least once in a race, go home!

Enjoyed every minute of every flight!
You as well Vitter, Flop, Flarpy, Joe, Gabby, Azhar, Azhar's guy(?), etc, etc, etc...

What a weekend for sure! Had a blast seeing old flying friends and meeting new ones. The display of flying was top notch and everyone was having a blast hucking it up. Big props to the Red Apple flyers and all the guy's/gal's and sponsors for putting it on.

Thanks to Azhar from Aztech Aeromodels for letting me huck his whips around the sky.
