Huckfest 2010 Review by Matt Waye

Huckfest, held at Broken Hill, NSW was one of the best events I have attended for some time! Huckfest is all about flying large aerobatic models to the absolute Extreme. Broken Hill was the perfect setting for such an event, heaps of room, no trees to create turbulence and the weather on the Friday and the Saturday was like it knew we were going to be flying. I had the privilege of taking a Hanger 9 100cc Extra 260 Converted to electric.

The quality of flying at the event was something I have not seen in one group of people before and it was great to be part of it. Guys flying these huge aerobatic models has to be seen to believed!

On the Saturday we finished the day off with a bit of night flying; and not your usual night flying with small electrics! No!-This is with two huge traffic work light towers and a 50cc Yak. Brilliant!

I will say a huge thanks to Broken Hill MFC for having us up to fly ( Great group of guys -really enthusiastic!). To all who read this, pencil this event in to your diaries for next year - its not to be missed! Check out the pictures at and the Huckfest 2010 thread on
