interesting, now they'd be sporting fpv.

second, I wondered about slaloming around light poles surrounding a baseball diamond, day or night, at a potential flying site between other flying sites near my residence, crazy.

Yikes!! That brings back some memories!

I hope the statute of limitations has expired since then... As the Contest Director of all the Bakersfield Fun-Flys back then, I'm pretty sure we violated the AMA Safety Code on more than one occasion

Different times.

Pylon racing

I was there and watching the pylon race. Wow! When the pole got hit it took on a significant bend about half way up! Crazy.

When you fly JUNK it's hard to tell when you've crashed!

Definitely needs to come back.

Too bad HD filming was not available then.

Greatest part was how many went out to help pick up.
