    For those that are NOT attending that Ultra Epic event called Huckfest, feel free to play with the little people down here at the Zone Fun fly.

    We will have the Fatshark camper present to showcase their FPV gear, along with drone racing.
    We will have wonderful challenges that everyone enjoyed the first time.
    We have FREE food, FREE Drinks and FREE entry with lots of fun for everyone.

    We even have Multiple Sponsors providing wonderful prizes, enough for almost all attendees:
    Great Hobbies
    Pinnacle Hobbies
    A&J Hobbies
    NG Hobbies (Fatshark)
    Hobby Hobby

    It will be a HUGE Blast for all, friends and families included.

    In my grubby little hands the Banner and Gift Certificates from Great Hobbies!! Woohooo

    Also hint of the day:

    How do you win spot landing...
    Here's the trick.
    1) GET a good spotter that will "Communicate clearly" your distance and alighment from the spot. They must be able to say things like.. Come closer by 2 feet, and you're 100 feet out. closer by 1 foot and 50 feet out. You're aligned and 20 feet out. Throttle off, drop.

    2) You must be able to fly just above stall and fly very predictable so your Caller / Spotter can guide you. On your approach, get down low as soon as you can, and fly just above stall by 1 or 2 clicks of the throttle. That way when your Caller says "Throttle Off" the plane will touch down about 3 - 4 feet later.

    It's as easy as that.

    Why do you need a caller? 2 Reasons, they are your extra eyes, and YOU get to concentrate on flying your plane. Just like in Rally Driving, the Co-driver can make or break your race.

    What are the common mistakes in spot landing?
    Flying too high
    Flying too fast
    Caller not looking at your plane
    YOU not looking at your plane.

    August 26th!!! Yaaaaaaa MON!!

    That's awesome Joe should be a fun time congrats on organizing this !!
    Even better is the sponsor ship kudos to the shops that support the hobby!!
    Sponsors that are in the industry or out of pocket just to help out are very cool lots of folks participating but very few go the extra mile such as yourself to do this kind of thing to make it successful !!
    Just great !!

    Thanks Ed, we did a trial run in the spring time, we have parking for 40 ish cars, and it was FULL, overflow parking was on Passmore and that was quite busy too.

    Fun event, I had no choice on the date, the RCFC-T already had the date reserved, so no way to move it.

    Dates don't matter just that you support the hobby and make events like this great !
    This is the way the hobby will continue!
    People get intimidated by the planes the cost etc kudos to do this and find a venue it hard sometimes to have all that at once!!
    Congrats once again!!
