Yep..stuff just happens ... When people stop flying for a bit an event happens.... If a bunch of people are in a groove people would scream "screw you!" If the tried to stop it..... You just gotta hang and enjoy

Remember ... Everyone better be prepared to drop $30 to fly, $10 extra for the steak dinner. No pussies allowed :-) I can name a certain someone that showed up, didn't want to part with $30 and missed a great day of flying only to just hang out... There are dull times where we just hang out at one end and fly foamies. Please please please make sure you pay even if you fly once ! You may get a chance to fly a big ass plane and learn so much.

Do you have to pre-register or anything or can you "pay at the door"?

I am not sure if I should fly or not. I am worried that I would have a mid-air without someone being a good spotter. So, I was thinking if I fly it would only be the 47" Edge or a PA 260

pay at the door. if they don't see you having fun you'll get escorted off the premesis...

spotters are available and willing, but flying in a congested sky isn't everyone's cup of tea. You will find times to fly even if you get nervous (many of the bigger scale guys fly way out you wont be bothered... others will get close, you'll just have to feel it out).

Agreed! Mike, you will fly and have fun. Arron is right. I was nervous as hell and had Arron spot for me as well as Ben. You learn to fly around the edges and we all hang out at one end and fly and look out for each other.

It is something you want and need to do. You will have fun and despite the percievd chaos things are orderly because these guys have money in their planes too.

Sign up at the door, have a blast, but most importantly sign up, you will have fun

I will bring one of my 70" Slicks then.

I got the repair parts for my favorite 57" Extra 330 today. So, as soon as I get some time I will be putting that back together.

My Omega 130 arrived as well. So, I will plop that in the 47" Edge and see how that balances with the lite batteries that I have. It flew better on Sunday with the 1/4" of room that I found to slide the battery further forward.

Keith, why not get the A9 and order one of the buddy boxes that Arron did the review on that you can use two different radios on.

I will definitely pay to fly at Huckfest. I figure even if I only get a few flights in, just watching the chaos is worth the money. OH, and I am going to win a plane in a raffle. Thats the plan anyway.

I am planning on going. I want to go to mainly watch. If I feel uncomfortable to fly I won't fly. And I don't want to be forced into something I will regret later. I do this as a hobby and enjoy being around the people involved in it. 2 1/2. Years ago I never would of thought I would be flying RC planes. I will go to encourage and have fun with my friend s. I want to be there to watch Arron kick butt in the king 50. So if it's ok to go and hang with you guys I am in. If it is not, and I will be teased and torchard by verbal abuse. I will stay at home and watch the action on rcgroups. I will be there to represent 3DHS in a circle flyer. These planes fly great, in all Styles of flying

as stated before, you'll only be escorted from the premises if you're not having fun, look forward to seeing you there

I can assure you there are a few times during the day when people slow down and you will plenty of time to fly unmolested.... or if you are lucky, there is some dude in the air that shouts over and says "hey try this!" ... we will have a clump of guys flying on the less crowded ends and we have even been able to walk out on the edges and fly foamies too. Bring cash, bring planes, don't bring a skirt.... I say that only because you "will" look up in the air and say holy crap there are a number of planes up there, throw yours up there too and I promise you it just gels

everyone is cool, and if something happens you will have to fight back the number of people throwing parts and help to get you back in the air. just getting in the air there really will help your confidence....

You won't get any ribbing from me. I will be just as nervous as you and looking for the un-crowded times to fly.

Your fine! I saw you thread the needle a few times. I would have been crapping bricks.
